Every Christmas should be the same

The number of times the varying species of postmen have woken me up in the past three days is ridiculous. Clearly I should get up earlier or stop buying things online.

I don't think I mentioned on here, at the beginning of the week I won a charity auction for one of the atheist bus ads. Original bus panels like these ones:

It turned up the other day. It's...kind of...bus-sized. Heh. It's in two parts which currently appear to be devouring my other sofa. I'm not quite sure what to do with it - I'd like to get it framed, but it'd have to be custom framed and that would be a) very expensive and b) probably impossible to get up the stairs of my block of flats once it's done, what with it being about 5m long. And I doubt you get home visits from picture framers. Maybe I'll just nail-gun it to the wall.

I've been buying Christmas presents too - I got a little bit carried away and seem to have bought 9 books and a DVD box set for my dad. (And some toffee.) It's not quite as bad as it sounds - five of them are the Hitchhikers Guide trilogy (£6.99 from the Book People just now, if anybody on my flist doesn't have them, which seems unlikely.) I lent him the original book of Last Chance To See after he'd watched the new series, and he adored the humour, so, yay. And my brother will be very happy to pay me for some of the other things and use them as his presents!

Speaking of books, the balance between technology and my disorganisation means it's now significantly quicker to bittorrent an ebook copy of, for example, The God Delusion and search it for a quote, than it is for me to FIND my copy, far less find the quote I wanted. Is this some kind of minor singularity?

Ooh, yay. Two new eps of Dollhouse to watch.
