Happy Christmas 

Just been shopping (total purchases: 1 * "tall triple-shot semi-skinny latte to go" from Starbucks), felt a bit Christmasy. After a while and started thinking, "isn't it nice this Christmasy atmosphere these shops have created, after all it is nearly Christmas isn't it?". Then I remembered that it's only the start of November and I felt a little sick.

This is one thing I'd ban if I was in charge of this country. No mention of Chrismas until December. I'd also ban shopping on Sunday.
I'd also ban yobs or kids or whoever it was stole the rear light from my bike on Friday while it was parked outside the train station. This is the second time in a few months where the light has been 'stuck' on the bike (so I'm unable to take it off when I leave it somewhere) and someone has come along and torn it off.
I don't know if this is wrong and I should be closely monitored, but on Friday night I felt I'd quite happily spend five years in jail for beating some 14 year old scum to within an inch of their life - if only I'd caught them in the act. I did seriously entertain the idea of lying in wait next to my parked bike and running at them with a flying fist the moment they turned up and started to vandalise it.
But I've calmed down now.

I started cataloging my books here. I've been looking for an application like this for a few months as I wanted to put some books in boxes and make a list of what books are in what boxes. I would suggest you give it a go, it has the best 'sign-up' process I've ever used. Other good features are 'tags' and finding other people with similar libraries to your own.
I did toy with the idea of writing something of my own as an excuse to play with some web-development technologies. Now there is no need, so I'll have to develop something else instead. Maybe I'll start on the 'Predict which famous people will die next year' website. This is an idea borrowed from Steve who plays this game every new year (and every year he predicts the demise of Fidel Castro). The idea would be that you would register and pick 10 people who you think will not see the next new year, prizes can be given for the person with the most correct guesses. I would have been impressed if anyone had managed to get even three out of: The Pope, Hunter S Thompson, Richard Whiteley, Luther Vandross, Mo Mowlam, Robin Cook, Sir Edward Heath and Ronnie Barker for 2005.

I can get from famous deaths to newspapers via obituaries. So let's talk about newspapers.
I'm pleased to say that after evaluating the new sized Guardian (over a period of nearly two months), I've gone back to the Indie. I quite miss the style and design of the old Guardian, but didn't often buy it (except on Saturday) because of the practicality of the tabloid Indie. I gave the new one a fair go, but just found it - apart from the comment and letter pages - rather dull. A few times I've worked my way though it and haven't found one story I felt like reading. I quite like the idea of having something random (an essay or diary) on the front page, but didn't like the idea of giving just the first few lines of three or four articles on the front page along with the number of the page where the article is concluded. If any of these articles is interesting, then I'm jumping back and forward in the paper and can't get settled. I much prefer the Indie's one big story on the front page.

I'll keep buying the Guardian on Saturday for the time being, as I haven't made up my mind but suspect it's superior to the Indie for weekend-type stuff.

I've given up with a Sunday paper, as I just find the main paper too trashy and woman's magazineie.
