In the news...

Tsunami man survives week at sea. Incredible survival story of a man who survived on driftwood eating coconuts after being washed out to sea.

Blog reading explodes in America. Read USA, but I would guess it's exploding all over the world.

Blockbuster games battle for 2004 crown. Which reminds me that I ought to finish Half Life 2, although I'm not enamoured with it so far.

Weak end-of-year sales hit Next. Maybe it's just me, but Next's clothes seem to be getting worse and worse. I bought a lot a few years back, but struggle to find anything now.

The article does make me wanna buy the books Crap Cars, Crap Jobs and Lynne Truss's Eats, Shoots and Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation though :-) And I've finally discovered what a "chav" is (I hadn't bothered to search before) and found a link to another great book, The Hypochondriac's Handbook: An Illness for Every Occasion, a Disease for Every Symptom.

And the Back to Mine fest continues. Underworld's album is superb!
