I'm sort of hooked on EastEnders now (thanks to uknova) and it really helps me work, believe it or not. Here's how this makes sense. Instead of multitasking and trying to do a few things in different browser windows, I have a browser window open with my work, my excel spreadsheet, and windows media player with EastEnders. Every day I get a few episodes or so in and I get plenty of work done. Then there are classic 2002 episodes of Coronation Street.
40 year Old Virgin is being watched on the telly right now. Things are going so well with my novel, I'm quite pleased.
On an entirely unrelated note I picked up some more dvds today - tdk. Very nice.
