 That's weird, no new "Doctor Who" to download today. I really liked this last Capaldi-season and am sorry to see him go. He's been among my very favourite actors some 35yr now and can always be counted on to deliver. Even better when he has good writing to work with!

The current tick-score this season is: 3. Two from Nyköping, one from somewhere in west Sweden, where I was driven around all last week to look at railway rock cuttings. Tuesday became a 14hr workday, oy. But we saw much om this part of Sweden, very pretty.

At the latest big Tolkien do in May I innocently signed up for minor management duty at this summer's Worldcon in Finland. Now I worry it will mean sitting in the same room all five days... That's not what I counted on when I bought the tickets!

This last week I've developed a sudden obsession, brought on by trying to notice the small things in life our eyes always pass over, like lamp post decorations, grafitti and roof ornaments. And now: manhole covers! Once you start noticing them they are everywhere and in a great number och shapes and sizes. But it's a bit embarrassing standing in the middle of the road and pointing the phone at them. I try to look like I'm perusing a map, or maybe doing that poke-thing that was all the rage last year.

After board meetings (well, one meeting, the other was cancelled at the last moment), a movie ("The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful", very pleasant), a whole day of selling coffee and hot sandwiches at Star Treff 60, and having successfully installed wifi so I can post this from the comfort of my sofa, I can noe relax with Stephen Fry's memoirs part 2 which half way in is absolutely delightful, before watching a brand new exciting episode of "The Nentalist".

Urrgh, who is smoking next to the fresh-air intake, and why won't they stop?!

More snow dumped on us last night. It made a very nice and quiet night, with almost no car sounds at all until I ventured out again this morning. Now even the thouroughfares are pretty clogged, not just the pedestrian bits of road away from main shopping areas. I want a toboggan too, wheee!

All this snow, above and below, makes for a very nasty orange glow at night. It's like living in a frozen fire: the glare is constant, not flickering. I find the brightness and the colour quite unnerving. Pits of hell, anyone?

At 1500hr yesterday my back started itching something awful and it hasn't really stopped yet. Wtf? Not wearing anything helps, but that's not really a viable option at work, is it...

Taking a break in the "Holmes" watching, with "ReGenesis". Mmmm, Canadian shows... that guest star Hugh Dillon...
