DD#1 did attempt to clean up the alternate universe that is her room over the recent school holidays but sometimes I swear there is a something alive other than her under her bed. LOL

Thanks, Sira. Anywhere would be good.

Uiiiiii... sounds creepy, definitely creepy. Hmmh, good luck with getting rid of it, and how about beaming it out of the house anyway? *lol* I'm sure Seven would like a creepy companion. *snorts*

*crosses fingers and toes even tigther* Hang in tight there! Because wonders do happen. I had to wait a long time for my vacation but lo' and behold I'll be going on one in two weeks. *lol*

A Germany flag. *bounces* :D

*ROFL* At times I'm afraid of what lives under my bed. :D Just vacuumed there and was very relieved to not meet any monsters. *gg*

Good luck with lotto. :)

... and... hmm... want a real holiday as well. How about switching living places for a few weeks? :D

I wish I had your backhand slice.

Oh, and saw an AWESOME New Tricks the other night -- not sure if it's a new series or a newish series that I just hadn't seen, but it had them hunting down UFO watchers. Was very good.

My backhand slice was purely unintentional - I couldn't do a proper backhand if my life depended on it.

I think that epi is from the new series. New Tricks is great - fun and moving too. Season 6 hasn't come out yet in Oz so I have to wait until I can download it.

New Tricks is my favorite thing on TV at the moment, at least until the new series of Doc Martin.

Ahhhh yes, the Beeb website says it's the second epi of Season 6. (and bloody hell, how come I missed the first one?!) Ah well, now I now. I won't miss more.
