Dolmio, April 2007

Taken a few years, but the trusty can of 3-In-1 oil dripped its last drop. In Woodbridge Woolies at the weekend, bought more of the lovely lube, now excitingly enough in a sprayable can. Not unlike WD40: coincidence, I'm sure. Bike running smoothly, but gave the chain and gear thingummies a good ol' squirt afore setting off this morning. Which seemed to cause the old two-wheeler to squeak and groan loudly both there and back. While I figure that out, here's last month's Dolmio (Doings Of Last Month Innoparticular Order).

That is to say, an attempt to capture past(a) events before they slip... my... mind. April 2007 was spent:

  • trying to decipher the lyrics of Mos Def and Dead Prez in Dave Chappelle's Block Party
  • lapping up story after story in the Heath brothers' Made To Stick
  • welcoming the return of Hugh in House
  • flicking through umpteen pages of the digits of pi in Coupland's immensely readable jPod
  • having a family day out at Chatham Docks
  • wrestling with a new cat flap
  • watching all of Mission To Mars over two days
  • downing my Easter supply of Lakeland marshmallows far too quickly
  • finally getting into Peep Show
  • chilling out with the kids at Jan's Madhouse
  • figuring out the bizarre workings of the American film ratings process in This Film Is Not Yet Rated

And that was April 2007.
