On Tuesday, various of us went to see Her Naked Skin at the National Theatre. Not great. It was by no means terrible, but the politics was undertreated, the anachronisms and rather blatant "hey, look we are in 1913!" moments too frequent, the humour seemed tacked on and rarely flowed naturally from the situation (Susan Engel excepted), and the romance elements rather too cliched.

Wednesday was Babylon 5 night. We watched And Now For A Word... and In the Shadow of Z'ha'dum, two quite significant episodes.

On Wednesday evening I discovered my phone line was deaded. Tinternet died at exactly midnight whilst I was browsing on my EEE in bed. Reported fault to BT yesterday, they sent me a PDF explaining how to plug my phone in and closed the ticket. Went to post-work drinks and then to gingerbeer meet at First Out, arriving back home just before midnight. Still no tinternets or dial tone. Phoned BT this morning to report while cake was baking, they are sending out an engineer tomorrow.

Have suspicion this is due to the 21CN upgrade that was supposed to be happening on my line on the same day. Unlikely to be anything to do with the theft of network cards from Stepney Green, as outage started before then.

    Peppa Pig is in the news. I still can't work out whether the artwork of this character is a brilliant attempt to introduce young children to cubism…

    careful consideration of image should reveal why i wanted a cow model.
