Let me see you move like you come from Colombia!

Salut à tous!

So, I have around twenty days until I leave for France, and I'm almost completely organised! All I need to do now is get my tricolour clown-wig all chopped off so that I'm not much of an eyesore to the guests of the Neige et Roc.

Bone Daddy's dying, and I took him to Calutek today to see if there was anything that could be done to make him better, but the computer man basically told me to get out of his shop. Moartea domnului Lăzărescu much?!

Aha. I'm a bit of an anorak when it comes to films from everywhere between Gdansk and Skopje. Sorry.

So, unfortunately, Bone Daddy won't be accompanying me to France and will not serve as my means of updating this here thing, but the good and righteous home insurance sector of our bank promises me £350 to splash out on a brand-spanking new, state-of-the-art laptop... from Argos! At the risk of sounding snobby, Argos is the last place I'd go even for an Argos catalogue, never mind a bloody laptop! Oh well, that's insurance companies for you. At least Argos will open the gates to endless winter nights of tearful webcam sessions, Russell Howard and/or Don't Tell the Bride on BBC iPlayer, and, if I have a relapse on my hands, FarmVille.
I thought about calling my new electronic friend Gene Hunt as opposed to the imaginitive Bone Daddy II, but I think that could be the Wii's name... I thought maybe a name taken from GipsyCz's "Baroque Cadillac Crew", but I'm not sure many people would "get" that. It's hard to be a Slavophile sometimes... Suggestions?! He must have a name!

I absolutely can't bring myself to write any more- I'm really tired after trying to get my head around tonight's episode of Wallander and my eyes are beginning to hurt. At least there's something here almost relevant to my séjour en France for you to read!
