30 days, virtue and a comparison.

1. The number of unread items in my spam box is going down by itself -- the 30-day auto delete has kicked in because I haven't looked in there for a month. This is good, because one of my new year's resolutions was to stop checking the spam folder. The Google system makes mistakes so rarely that a daily wallow in mails from people who peddle filth and misery is not worth it. My other resolution -- to stop reading the depressing Have Your Say message boards on the BBC -- is going well, too.

2. I hold up my cotton bag for my purchases, and the shop man smiles and says: 'Good girl.'

3. I skim over my copy of the Watchmen graphic novel to compare it with the film I saw last night.


  1. hello... hapi blogging... have a nice day! just visiting here....

  2. how'd you like the movie?

    (i love it when people say 'good girl'. some people consider it condescending, but it makes me feel warm + fuzzy inside.)

  3. Have you ever read the blog sending up people who contribute to Have Your Say?

    Very funny, though still slightly depressing.

  4. Wonderbug -- I loved it, but I didn't like the violence (I knew it was going to be like that, and that it's necessary for the story. I hid my face at the worst bits).

    It's very thought-provoking trying to work out who is responsible for what happens; who is a hero and who is a villain.

  5. Mr London Street -- I know about iylismwdyglt. It's a bit of a gateway drug.

    I've just been over there, and it made me want to go and look at HYS...

    But I was strong.
