I hope they’ve bought that little hand bell I told them I’d need when I get home.

I was moved from my single room to a four bed ward yesterday evening and had a very good night’s sleep, because I’m further away from those beeping monitors and I can’t hear the clock ticking. I was also the only occupant.

I slept for a while, then woke, needing the bathroom, at around 1am. As I walked out of the ward I was aware of what looked like a body in the opposite corner bed, entirely covered, and apparently not breathing. I came back to bed and settled down, but wasn’t sure if I could hear some noise coming from the other occupied bed. I remember hearing the gasses escape from dead bodies for quite some time after death, so wondered if it actually was a body awaiting collection.

I woke this morning needing the loo and noticed that there was still a covered body in the bed, but in a different position!!

When I came back, the top of the covers were drawn back and indeed there was a living being there, fast asleep.

The breakfast truck arrived, the auxiliary woke him up, and he hasn’t stopped natterring ever since. He collapsed in the street yesterday, something he does regularly since his infected pacemaker was removed.

He’s running the staff ragged. Obviously used to spending time in hospital. His first question was where he could go for a cig.

It was great to see you all again last night and especially Warhead, you were looking remarkable!

We missed you though Kov... Last night's score keepers weren't a patch on you. They messed up so badly they even thought I came second to last!

Yes, was good to see you Warhead.

Still amused by someone not quite getting the "answer will be a Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John" rule in my round, although in fairness I should have said there were no trick questions. :)

Hi everyone,

Tonight's details are in the usual place. Afraid I can't make it tonight but have fun nonetheless.

A smidge late, but I won't make it last night - nowhere really convenient to do it where I am at the mo.

I'm an hour ahead, so at 6 our time I figured I had ages to decide, then just before 8 I figured I would announce my non-participation, realised I actually had another hour to faff with and forgot all about it.

Sorry I didn't make it last night... Time got the better of me in the end as I have loads of work to be getting on with.

If doing a question about the number of acting roles a person has had, would you include the following:

1) uncredited roles?
2) cameos?
3) straight to video?
4) TV movies?

I am inclined to exclude 1, 3 and 4, but keep 2?

Thoughts?

Yeah, listings on iMDb would be a better way of doing it IMO.

I couldn't see an easy way of separating TV from films.

If there was a way of doing that, it would be ace, because they actually give you a count, rather than wikipedia just listing them in a table.

I have one of them (in fact I KickStarted them) and they are indeed brilliant, and those pens are lovely.

Frixion pens are great, and people that sew use them a lot for pattern marking, as once the garment is ironed the marks disappear, BUT they have a bit drawback in this regard as if the garment then gets cold again (on an icy day) all the marks reappear :D

Quite a few people have fallen foul of this.

I too Kickstarted it and used it a bit, but never really found a workflow that wasn't a bit too much faff to be bothered with. So I just took notes like a normal notebook.

Aww, it won't be the same without you both, but hopefully you can be around next week and in a place to enjoy it more. :)
