not looking good for the barbecue

Please Let me Back In
Originally uploaded by Damian Cugley.

Great. The first night I think, ooh, it's mild enough, I'll leave the top off the magnolia, and LOOK WHAT HAPPENS! Well (grumble, gargle) at least I'm providing my housemate with good blogging material. The rest of the snow photos, including improvised magnolia hat and bird table.

In other news, I've been lost in housework, down the pub, and rearranging the furniture, alongside wasting time on the interwebs and comicking. And the TV for dinosaurs and cartoons. Some cable channel is currently asking people to vote on when the best historic site Britain is, with a phone-this-numberercial featuring Alan Titchmarsh wandering around a bunch of fricking stately homes! Every time it comes on I have to shout, WE ALREADY KNOW! IT'S STONEHENGE! On that topic, I was amused to find this list of American roadside stonehenge tributes: Visiting Stonefridge after dark is not recommended. Vandals have reportedly set off bombs inside the refrigerators.

Reminder to self: it's Ank-eye-lo-saur, not Ank-ill-o-saur. I'm never going to be able to remember that.

Well, I'm also worried about not looking good for the barbecue; I seem to have a spot on my nose.

don't worry, no-one will notice over the DRIVING SLEET

Mild?! Are you sure you live in Oxford, lass?

mild enough
Relative to the previous days. I mean, I'm not trying to coddle my magnolia, it'll have to learn to deal with the frosts on its own

I've held a barbecue in the rain before - a washing line and a lot of umbrellas were enough to let us get things cooked and eaten before retiring indoors.

What time on Saturday is the barbecue planned?

From 5-ish, so we get a bit of evening light (ah-hahahah)

does the site include the brickhenge you built in my back garden? I'd look myself, but I'm supposed to be somewhere else.

May not be on the internet again before Sat night, so text if it turns into a normal evening party, or if I don't have a sleeping place any more, or something? ;-)

normal evening party
Well, I'd say there's little chance of that. But the party will continue into the evening, anyway :)

There aren't any bricks here. It's very odd, I've never lived anywhere before that didn't have a random pile of bricks in the back garden.

Re: normal evening party
Well, we have a random pile of bricks in the back garden. If you want them, you're welcome.

We were going to have a Blackberry-Henge here made from discarded Blackberry handsets, but I believe a 'better' use has been found for them.

I always thought it was Ank-lee-o-saur. D'oh!

IT SNOWED IN OXFORD? I slept through it!
