So, farewell then Keith Floyd - and thank you for helping me develop a love of cooking.

I know I am not very well and have a bit of a temperature, but someone - please - reassure me that Anne Robinson playing The Weakest Link with a bunch of soft toys was indeed a feverish hallucination and not, contrary to appearances, prime time output from the world's greatest public service broadcasting organisation.

I despair.

Otter
Originally uploaded by groan.
As part of the preliminaries to my birthday I went to London Zoo yesterday (more pics on flickr).

I think my favourites were the otters - there was a whole host of 'em - scampering and mewling and generally being very entertaining. Hurrah for litheness!

I also went to Bertorelli for dinner which was a much less agreeable experience. The restaurant was full, so we ate in the "Caffe" downstairs. The service was slow (a couple next to us had been waiting 45 minutes for their starter) - the portions were tiny (I had veal milanese and the spaghetti came in a dish about half the size of a small saucer) - and the tables were cramped.

I complained and got a 15% reduction, which was a barely adequate gesture. I chatted with the waiter - who was charming, but clearly wildly over-stretched - and he mentioned that they were having problems in the kitchen with a new chef.

On the way out we saw Alan "may he live forever" Rickman on his way in - we almost warned him off, but didn't. Should have done really. Ah well.

I'm playing with the Google Docs and Spreadsheet stuff which claims direct publishing to Livejournal.

Listening to Radio 4 and tidying the house and gently seething... There is a programme on about the military base that the US occupying troops have built on the archaeological ruins at Babylon... including a helipad and (why does this remind me of a song?) a parking lot. Oh and they used archaeological debris to fill the sandbags for their defences. Oh and scraped away the surface to lay a compacted (and chemically treated) gravel bed on which to build their station houses (or whatever the term is).

Gotta love 'em for their cultural sensitivity.

I went to see Basic Instinct 2 this evening - largely because I wanted to go to the movies and it was that or Hostel. It was a truly terrible movie with absolutely no redeeming features at all. Dull, uninventive, stilted, unerotic, unthrilling, un-everything. I should have stayed home and sorted my sock drawer.
