I returned home from Brighton late last night (sadly alone) to various items of news. One was a postcard from my sister in the Big Bend National Park in Texas. It featured this picture...


... on the back of which my Big Sis had written "I saw this and thought of you". So that's her off my Christmas card list.

Apparently the creature in question is called a 'Javelina' (pronounced 'hav-uh-LEE-nuh'). The postcard informs me that they're short, fat, nearsighted, and are active in the late afternoons. So quite why my sister thought of me, I'm not sure.

My second item of note was an e-mail sent to me via my SoundClick music page. It reads:

"I live in Woodbridge, and was wondering if you have any albums out/available".

Marvellous. I have a fan! And what's more, they're local. I knew if I stuck that music on the web for long enough, eventually I'd find someone who liked it. And it only took a year and a half.

On the slight downside, the person in question forgot to fill in their name and e-mail address, so I don't actually have a clue who they are, and I can't respond. But hey, it's the thought that counts.

Thirdly, I checked my lottery numbers for Saturday, to see if I can now afford a house in Brighton. The winning numbers were:

5 , 16 , 22 , 25 , 27 , 30

I'd invested a whole pound in a May themed lottery ticket which included...

5 (the month of May)
26 (the day Lisa and I are going to see Neil Diamond)
28 (the day we're going to see Duran Duran)
29 (our first anniversary)
31 (my age)

So 25, 27 and 30 come up, and I have 26, 28, 29 and 31. Is it just me, or is that something of a travesty? It's like the bingo all over again.
