Dolmio, June 2006

No time to say hello, goodbye, I'm late, I'm late, I'm late. Look away now if you don't want to hear the scores, for it's another end-of-month Dolmio (Doings Of Last Month Innoparticular Order) round up.

That is to say, an attempt to capture past(a) events before they slip... my... mind. June 2006 was spent:

  • listening to the incredible story of Robert Evans (Rosemary's Baby, The Godfather, Chinatown, etc) in The Kid Stays in the Picture
  • reading, book the first: the adventures of Thursday Next, volume 2, in Jasper Fforde's Lost In A Good Book
  • reading, book the second: Nick Hornby's two short stories in the special Penguin edition of Otherwise Pandemonium
  • watching far too much footy all the way through from day 1 to day 31
  • losing my temper with The Boy for not wanting to do any more karate lessons
  • switching to Finish Quantum to bring the dishwasher back to life
  • knocking up a homepage for Oxfam at Woodbridge
  • listening to Neil Hannon's latest Divine Comedy outing, the lovely Victory for the Comic Muse
  • watching the season finale of House: I think he'll make it
  • being impressed by what the kids can do with my iSight camera and iMovie
  • getting soaked and soaking others in the in-laws waterfight

And that was June 2006.
