Strange Cat

Looks like winter has arrived with brute force (well, not really...). Last night was -1c here, and it's almost 9.30 in the morning and it's risen to a staggering 1c! Looks like snow is on the way somewhere nearby. Not that I mind... I just hope my washing on the line defrosts before I can bring it in.

At least Edward is developing into a good conversationalist around here. It won't be long until I advertise for a new housemate. I'm enjoying the space and the relative freedom living on my own for a little while. I'm sure Edward would be the only one who would cope with someone playing Bach piano pieces all hours of the night, huh?

Edward is my teddy bear, by the way... I've had him since the first day of my life. So yeah, he's been around a fair lot and seen a whole lotta things... the stories, the gossip, the drama, the laughs, the bizarre things he could relate!

If only our teddy's could speak.

Or maybe it's better that they don't?

That'd make an interesting plot synopsis, surely?

"The Teddy Revelation"? "You Wouldn't Believe It If I Could Tell You"? "The Bear Truth"?

OK OK, I'll stop now.

I was wrong!

Matt did ring me lunchtime-yesterday... but he sounded so out of it, I'm not even sure of he knew what time of day it was. Needless to say he's even begging-off playing this Sunday. His loss, not ours, I tell you.

He's trying to live the rock'n'roll lifestyle (sex, drugs, rock'n'roll... except there's no sex and possibly less r'n'r!) - except he's not even participating playing any music.

Red Bull, Vodka, Tequila, dope... and who knows what else...

Strange cat.

Yes, I'm keeping well out of his way. I'm not sure he even wants any 'help' or that he sees he has substance-abuse problems.

What to do...

Every pupil's dream: the exam with answers on back

It sounds like every student's dream - turning over an exam paper and finding the answers on the back.

But that was what happened to 12,000 lucky British teenagers when they sat their GCSE music exam last week.

The OCR (Oxford, Cambridge and RSA) examination board admitted on Thursday that, because of a "printing error," papers sent to schools had answers to questions on the back page.

"All exam papers have a copyright statement dealing with source material on the back page," an OCR spokeswoman said.

"This one in particular had more detail than is usual in a music paper."

The exam board said only 5 per cent of the overall marks on the paper were possibly affected and students would not have to do a re-sit as most pupils seemed to have been unaware of their good fortune.
