Though I hate to compliment the paper, there's a superb photograph on the front of the Daily Telegraph today. A pair of black-clad submachine-gun toting police officers, cropped to not show their faces, in front of a Labour poster with the words "A Better Life".

Listening to Within Temptation's album Mother Earth. OK, so I'm about 3 years late on this one, but it's only just out in the UK. Wow, what a lot of overblown folk-influenced prog-metal tree-hugging pagan goth ostentation. It's great. In its own way.
I'm usually quite surprised on the relatively rare times when I find I've been mentioned in a conversation which I wasn't at. Whether I'm pleased, worried, curious or whatever is secondary to the surprise that people bother talking about me at all.
