Please don't go crazy if I tell you the truth, no you don't know what happened and you never will if you don't listen to me while I talk to the wall...

Haloscan is being a dick and keeps putting "Gravatar" up next to comments, not the images just the word. Stupid. The I tried to write a response in my comments box to Grace's comment and it wouldn't let me, it just went all blank and wouldn't refresh and then when it did it had eaten my comment so I gave up.
Grace, I am far too tall to be part hobbit, also not nearly hairy enough. I use my monkey toes to hold on to branches as I swing from tree to tree. This is also where my ridiculously long arms come in handy. Height = 5ft ten & 1/2. Arm span = a little over 6ft 2.
Yep, I'm a monkey. Cue monkey jokes.

Things that are making me happy today: the fact that one of The Most Beautiful Pieces of Music Ever has just come on: "Papua New Guinea" by Future Sound of London. Also, for the first time in two and a half months, my dear old mum (she'd kill me if she knew I called her old) is in the same country as me. In fact, she is just down the road in Manhattan until Thursday when her and her bestest friend are getting on a train to come and see me!!! Woohoo!!!! She's also bringing with her lots of things that I am missing, like Marmite and Jaffas and Timtams and 42 Below Feijoa vodka...mmmmm.....feijoa vodka.....

I currently have five books on my bedside table, and not one of them is school-work related. And yes, I am reading them all.
They are, in no particular order:

- Four Great Plays by Henrik Ibsen
- Country of My Skull by Antjie Krog (ok a little bit school related, but only because I chose to write a paper on it because its such an awesome book)
- Growing Up Black ed. by Jay David
- The Hot Zone by Richard Preston
- Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert M. Pirsig.

What is on your bedside table?
