After three days without a blog post, word has reached me today that there are people out there who are desperate for me to write something. Not because they can't live without my blogging, but because they're fed up of seeing their demonically possessed face at the top of the page every time they come here.
So I'd just like to apologise to my Mum. Although if you're too cheap to pay for a face lift, you've only got yourself to blame. That said, here's a photo of someone who's less likely to complain...
That's another of Amelie's efforts. You can tell she took the photo, firstly by the fingerprint of ice cream in the top right of the camera lens, and secondly because Toby never laughs that much at anyone else. He thinks she's bloody hilarious.
Anyhoo, if you want to solve the mystery of why I haven't written much just lately, you'll find the crucial piece of evidence in this blog post. Yes, I'm dating Sandi Toksvig. And we're also obsessed with 'The Killing'. To my complete amazement, Lisa and I have managed to watch all twenty one-hour episodes of Forbrydelsen in seventeen days. Despite spending one of those in Leicestershire. Although as Lisa pointed out to me yesterday, we've watched precisely nothing else. Frankly we haven't seen so much as a weather forecast for the past fortnight. So the floods took us a bit by surprise.
Anyway, I'm here to tell you that despite featuring more unanswered questions than a conversation with Amelie, 'The Killing' is probably the best TV series I've seen. In Danish. In the past year. Lisa and I have been hopelessly, helplessly hooked since the first episode, and if my wife had had her way, we'd have stayed up until 4am every night to watch it. Even now it's finished, I've spent one of the most enjoyable hours of my entire life today reading the comments on this blog post. That's not a link to click if you haven't watched the series, but if you have, it will restore your faith in human reasoning, and have you rolling in the aisles. I haven't laughed so much in years.
Unfortunately, if you think I'll be wallowing in free time now that I've found out whodunnit, you're sadly mistaken. We're starting series two tonight.
