Loz Cola

Revenge of the Ford Laser...

Our car has broken down again. Poor Jez is here trying to help dad to fix it. And mum and Nick took Jezza's car to go to the local shopping centre to buy my birthday present(s). I know this as a fact because it's my birthday tomorrow, mum got only got paid on thursday, and it's pretty obvious that they were quite that stressed for that reason. It's 35 or something degrees.

Cheerful eh? And yet - for some reason, unknown to me, I'm feeling quite chipper.

Oh, I got one of the Barry Trotter books for my birthday, and reading through the blurb and copyright information (I always do that) I was twittering, so this should keep me entertained for a bit. On the one hand - I can't help but think it's just a tad unfair a parodyist gets paid for something many fanfiction writers do on a regular basis, on the other - I adore Weird Al, so I can't quite get that hypocritical on this issue.
