Class (Dr Who)

@Andrea it certainly had promise and I wish it had continued. What I liked was the more explicit focus on being young adult focused. That's how I remember the first episodes of Dr. Who

I'm babysitting Pi. My brother's off on an overseas holiday, so I am looking after the little boy for a few weeks. He hasn't decided to be friendly yet

Thwart nazi efforts on the play store

If you can, please mark all nazi/freezepeach reviews as unhelpful. The scumbags are boosting those, so turnabout is required.

play.google.com/store/apps/det

Leaving a positive review is also good, of course, but the "mark unhelpful" is safe.

It could also qualify as spam, so maybe use that instead - it's reasonable to assume Google cares more about that.

Pls boost

Hospital blues

I am so fucking tired of being surrounded by a beeping, hacking, wretching, coughing, commercial television hospital ward wall of sound. There's no respite from the audiovisual morass that surrounds me and I am really looking forward to spending days of silence in the dark 😱🌑

This is a heartwarming story of how a young mother can combine a (national championship winning) career with looking after her two-year old, but I kept wondering what the father was doing. My guess is that being a professional female cyclist - even in Belgium - doesn't pay enough to enable him to take time off to help look after the child, so he works full time. It would have been nice to read about that side of their situation.

What's my favourite thing today?

Reopening a 50 year old book. As far as I recall, LoTR is one if the first books I ever read. I'd reread it constantly as a child and my ritual each Christmas holiday when I was older was to set aside time to read it when I went home.

I have a newer copy, but my mother sent this down to me a while back and I've just started reading it again after a long break.

Gravel rash

So I went tor a decent ride with my brother for the first time in ages. I fell off after about 3km and rode for another 25km to Parramatta. We had lunch and then I cleaned the area and coated it in antiseptic cream before riding home

Enslaved, and then learning English, Greek, and Latin by the time she was 12? A force of nature.

Istanbul on King has closed after maybe 20 years IIRC. That's another icon of Newtown gone ☹

There's a tree down at the bottom of the street and it's brought down the power lines. Luckily our power is on at the moment, but the repairman will have to cut the lines and rebuild - whenever they arrive.
