1. There is a programme on Sky History on Sunday that I'd really like to see.
2. I do not have a TV or a video recorder.

Am I stuffed / doomed to ask [ profile] swisstone or somebody to video it for viewing on some future visit? Or is there some other solution that someone could provide?

email from estate agent: can exchange Fri, complete next Fri, just need letter from Freehold Managers re insurance.
me: YAY. *emails solicitor to ask her to sort letter*
email from solicitor: I will try but it would be better if you did it.
me: *fumes and grinds teeth and fires back very short email along the lines of DO IT OR ELSE*
re this entry, do any of you have Sky TV, a DVD recorder and the willingness to record a documentary for me?

It'll take my mind off my property-sale woes ...
solicitor: "Are you sure you haven't got this insurance?"

I am a bit stressed this afternoon what with Solicitor.
My joint pain (knees and elbows mostly, also fingers) is back.

I wonder if these two facts could be related? Either adrenaline build-up or simple muscle tension?
concert reviews in brief ...

15th November: Prokofiev - Love of Three Oranges; Tchaikovsky - Piano Concerto #1; Rachmaninov - Symphonic Dances Tchaikovsky )

20th November: Khatchachurian - Piano Concerto; Orff - Carmina BuranaOrff )
Thanks to [ profile] ivory_goddess, who has translated my original vague information into Reality, I can rephrase the question as "Does anyone have the History Channel and a DVD Recorder and the willingness to record Vic Reeves going on about pirates in general with probably about 30 seconds of Dampier, on Sunday at 5:30pm or maybe 5pm?"

bedtime ...

also, have swum 500m.
also, have not gone after solicitor with wasabi-coated disposable chopsticks.
also, have tested CD burner on new laptop (got to love a track called 'Here Come the Romans', even though it is far from the best on the album) and found it good.
also, have won a frivolous coat on eBay (though not the most frivolous coat: may yet win that too, ooops, but could not resist).
also, have plotted out in fair-to-middling detail (scenes and POVs) the rest of the Nanowrimo tale.
also, have fab friends who have sorted out a copy of the Dampier documentary for me.
also, have remembered why Red Bull after 8pm is a bad idea, even if I do need a temporary pick-me-up ...
