No fearsome deluges here in South London, just the usual tedious drizzle. It was too heavy to work out this morning, but once I'd schlepped to the laundry, the 'mist' was light enough for me to go to the park and 'get it over with' I met R who was still there working out the dawgs. Felt etremely virtuous when I'd done.
The had a long, tiresome echange with the BT help desk. Everything now seems to be more or less working, touch wood. When you can barely move, it's a real drag doing all this multipe plugging and unplugging stuff. Bah.
I am now getting in a Cinese food mood, following my painful knee-bending exertions and all the annoying faffing about...must resist....
Watched the ancient version of KING SOLOMON'S MINEs with Paul Robeson, (and Cedric Hardwicke as Alan Quartermain!) Found myself rather annoyed at the retarded depiction of the 'Irish' characters, although it was otherwise  not very racist or sexist for the period. Great fun, all in all, with plenty of the sublime Mr Robeson bursting into song at odd moments.
