The new Sugar site is up. It makes me proud to know that I helped plan it in the ideas stage. Then the Deputy Ed worked her arse off to make it all actually happen.
The Celeb Snogathon game is addictive. Go and play! Hilariously Pete Doherty is the minger. For all you ladies out there, it's also quite fun trying out different clothes on the model. And, of course, making your own Woman style cover (it's all in the coverlines don'tcha know).
Go and play! I won't tell anyone…

So I got myself some Take That tickets for the Cardiff show, ought to be fun: of course the company is exquisite ;)
I have had many many things to blog about in the past few weeks, but have to keep either resisting the urge (on the basis of having too much work to do to make it a guilt-free activity) or think "shit, but I still don't have the internet at my house". The latter can be ranted about another time, but think about how pissed off you would be if you applied to get broadband on 18th August and still don't have the modem to go with it.
So once again, I should be doing work at home, but the mere act has become so depressing that I'm resisting. Even though I know that more work now will mean efficient sleep later.
More generally speaking,I'm feeling torn these days.
There's the half of me that wants to go out, have fun, never sleep and behave like a schoolgirl at work. Then there's the half that would be much happier living on my own (though to be fair, I more or less do at the moment anyway), coming home at the same time every day to cook real food (as opposed to the constant snacking of present times), sleeping decent hours, having a good read before bed every night and spending all day Sunday drinking tea and reading the papers.
Thing is, I suppose everyone has the same sort of internal conundrum, if not about the same issues. You always want the lifestyle you haven't got at that very moment in time: the-grass-is-always-greener syndrome. But heck, that's life.
London is very very very slowly becoming less darkly mysterious and more brightly friendly, in small, indiscernible ways. This can only be a good thing.
And now, back to research for work…on a Sunday.

So, it won't be as beautifully written as the one that got deleted when the page decided to close itself.
But interesting stuff I did a couple of weeks ago:
Unexpectedly got to go to the HMV digital launch in Leicester Square. There was a red carpet'n'all! I wouldn't recommend drinking at lunchtime when you work though, but when people have ready poured wine, you feel guilty not having a glass on your somewhat empty stomach. The delicately tiny nibbles aren't quite enough by the time they go round the whole room!
I thought it was going to be another boring industry launch but oh no, not HMV! I met Steve Knott (HMV Europe MD and former NME Editor), Head of PR for HMV, brushed past Roger Daltrey of The Who, got to watch an unexpected short Razorlight set (and having missed them several times over the past two years, it was nice to finally see them…from the front…without getting squashed…for free) AND got my picture taken with McFly for a little snapshot in the mag. A lunchtime of adventure.
A couple of weeks after that, I went to another thing that noone wanted to go to. An event put on by Tiscali. I thought I was going to see a Suffrajets showcase, which didn't exactly fill me with glee, but turns out it was a screening of loads of backstage sessions done by awesome bands for Tiscali at Reading. Covent Garden screening rooms are very nice and comfy and the nibbles were nice too. I was good though and drank water.

So I've had lots of things to put on my blog in the past couple of weeks: soon will come the task of remembering all the things to blog about.
Meanwhile though, we've had the Franz Ferdinand album in the office for the past couple of weeks and now that the drilling has started to slow down (i.e. there's less of it drowning out our stereo) I can tell you that it really is a good listen. Not what I expected from them, more highly charged I guess? And that is all I have time to write, back to work.
