Wherever I Go, There's Always Ant and Dec

Things I have looked up on 'the' Wikipedia recently, according to my browsing history:

Elvis Costello
Clockpunk
James Boswell
Colitis
Forfeda
Ant and Dec
Perceval
Puff the Magic Dragon
Kathy Staff
Figgy Pudding
Lehman Bros
Josiah Wedgwood
Cerebral Palsy
Charles II of England

If I was researching a novel it would clearly be ace, but not quite as ace as the first one.

In other news, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, and wish you all a very happy New Year. I predict that 2009 will be the year that blogging officially becomes old hat, along with halogen spotlights, Starbucks and rocket. Ambient lighting, Caffe Nero and lamb's lettuce FTW!

In more other news, my copy of Steven Johnson's new book, The Invention of Air, has arrived, hurrah! I can't think of anything more pleasurable to do on The Day After Boxing Day than read a super book about 18th-century natural philosophers. Can you?

In the last of the other news, this is apparently my 700th post. I've resolved to try a bit harder with the next 700.

I dreamt I saw Ant & Dec last night.

They were very rude and I still don't know which one's which.

No, I have no idea about that which you speak.

Geoff: Ant is the one on the left.

Vicus: I don't know what you're on about, but many thanks for the lovely card, which miraculously arrived on Christmas Eve. I didn't understand very much of it, though.

Ant and Dec always stand in alphabetical order.

Dec's the one that looks like Lee from 911. Obviously.

Congratulations on your 7 millionth blog post.
