Sometimes the unexpected happens – take this morning, for example – on opening the window, the view that greeted me was like a picture postcard from somewhere much more expensive than East London.
There is something so cleansing about urban snow, I’m not sure what – perhaps it’s the acoustic effect of laying a blanket of absorbent material across normally loud and jarring city noises, or the mental concept of the world looking soft and fresh and ready to reboot – all I know is that the feeling I got from this scene was unfamiliar to me. I felt… tranquil.
I did my stint on TV yesterday, just before the snow started. In between shows, I had a nice big plate of Chinese food with one of the camera operators, then a lovely cup of tea with Keeley from Elemis in the QVC cafe. We talked about the new social media aspect of the Internet and managing your online reputation.
Tonight I watched the last episode of Torchwood season 2. Don’t worry, no spoilers. Blimey though, what a finale, can’t wait for the next season… makes what I get up to on TV rather tame…
And so, to this week – with great unexpected joy, it seems that my diary is gloriously, wonderfully, deliciously empty apart from a mad dash round London town on Wednesday. I can’t wait – it’s the perfect week to get some admin sorted while chugging through Season 3 of DS9 (for my sins – Star Trek keeps me in one place while I enter stuff into MS Money, and as I didn’t see them all first time round, it’s all I have). I’ll also try and get some gadgety video stuff filmed for internet release as well (watch this space), but – most unexpectedly of all – I might just attempt this thing called “tranquility” before the frenzied madness kicks back in. Wish me luck.
“Pimp My Mac” Update: Proper obsessives modding their Mac computers: witness a golden mac, a demon mac, and some serious paint jobs, I’m excited now, counting the days in an almost disproportionate manner.

If you liked the original NecroMac, you should see the second one.
Cheers for the tip, loving my new macpro and getting a lightscribe DVD burner as the icing on top this week.
Necro 2 looks awesome – let me know when you’re doing other projects!
