random thoughts

-I now have one of those new iPod Nanos, courtesy of Mrsfb for Christmas. It is a lovely bit of kit, and until you see one you really can’t imagine quite how small and slim they are. Yet they are really solid as well, nice combination. Just feels less likely to break than the older large iPod I had *crosses fingers*

-Was thinking about global warming and the future today. Science says we could be in serious trouble in the next 30 years, government says not to worry, effectively, due to its inaction. All I can think therefore is that they lack the will to do anything due to the likelyhood they will be dead when it is a problem. Perhaps the answer is to not worry about it, don’t save for the future, don’t have a pension, as it will all be washed away regardless. I may have been queuing in Barclays whilst considering this.

-I’m a huge fan of John Irving, but was sorely disappointed by The Fourth Hand, which I gave up reading two-thirds of the way through, which is an almost unthinkable act for me normally. However I read his latest Until I find you over Christmas, and really couldn’t put it down, it was a fantastic read. I’d suggest reading some of his older books first if you haven’t come across him before, as they are wonderful, but do get round to reading it.
