Quiet desperation.

Sunday afternoon; sunny, warm Sunday afternoon. The winding down of a pretty good weekend. True, I didn't get to Aquamarine or anything else I wanted to see, but that's all for next weekend. And on the upside, I finally managed to do the laundry that's been piling up for weeks. And to start listening to my new buys (James Bond 10th Anniversary - 50p cassette from the nearest charity shop, so it only goes up to Diamonds Are Forever and there's no Paul McCartney of "Will she still need me when I'm 64? Er, no" fame - The Misfits from Alex North, The Big Bounce by George S. Clinton [white, the Austin Powers movies, not to be confused with Mr. Funkadelic] and Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs Soundtrack 2 which some idiot at Virgin Piccadilly Circus put in among the sale items by mistake, so I had to pay a lot more than £1.99 for it. Luckily I like it... "Can you hear the thunder inside/Saberrrr Riderrrr....").
And to watch The MTV Movie Awards at long last (note to Oscar-winning star of stage and screen Nicole Kidman; Alba can do comedy. You cannot. Please stop). And to please Sharon by actually cooking food before its use-by date. And to get psyched over Sharon's birthday - she's going to a club that does R&B, and I said I'd go with her. Oh well, at least I've got a week off soon.
Only one thing could make it better; that washing machine stopping... oh, it's stopped. Only one thing could make it better - the Pussycat Dolls getting a third No. 1 (especially since it would replace Nelly Furtado)... so it probably won't. Only one thing could make it better; a new episode of The Simpsons today. And hey, there is one. Bless.
UPDATE: Nicole and company didn't get their third UK chart-topper - but Shakira got her first one. Congratulations, Miss Ripoll. (It should, of course, have been her second what with being robbed for one for "Whenever Wherever," but never mind.)

You've had quite a nice weekend, Victor. It sounds like something I'd like to experience.

And honestly, you could have put just about any lyric that I didn't know down and claimed that I would never be caught singing it...

because why would I sing lyrics I've never heard before?
