A Curious Girl

The musings of a girl who is curious in both senses of the word. Life, God, and York. Oh, did I say York? I meant Bradford!

This just in...

I'm baaaack!

I am going to be an aunty. Or auntie. Whatever. My sister-in-law is pregnant and I've already seen the first picture. Aunty Helen. I am very proud. I have taken to telling everyone, many times. My brother will be a dad :D

I still have dodgy internet access but I came into the library so I could pay the Council Tax (boo!) without digging up my chequebook. Read an awesome quote in The Times:

(J.K.) Rowling holds the record for the fastest-selling book in Britain, previously held by D.H. Lawrence for the uncensored edition of Lady Chatterley's Lover.


That's right. Harry Potter is more popular than porn.

I'm not sure I want to bother with the Harry Potter theme park though. It just, rather like the films in fact, seems a bit tasteless and definitely commercial, but just Potter enough that I want to go anyway. Still, it's going to be in Florida (which seems a shame in itself. Disneyland is right in Florida, but I'm not sure Harry Potter is), so the chances of me going any time in the distant future are rather low.

Anyway, I had better go since I have to go back to work (sigh), but at least I have a rehearsal tonight. I'm still trying to work out stuff for Bradford and I've been a bit de-motivated today. There is always so much to do... sigh. And money is, well, not tight, but tricky. I shall be OK if I keep working hard :) Bank holidays are great too. Can't imagine why anyone would want to stay home!

See you in the not-too-distant future :)

Found the notebook, safe and sound. Have no internet connection so I'm writing from an internet café. I'd mind but the music here is too damn good.
