Lead in my pencil

We're having a baby - it's official!
After weeks of trying to hide it (with mixed success) we've had a scan and all is well and bouncing around the womb!
According to normal human gestation period, it should arrive on 20th June

Katie Heather Jordan

Evening all

For those who are not already aware - Katie Heather was born at 01:31 this morning at Nottingham City Hospital. She weighed in at 7lb15oz.

The whole thing (this time) took 3 and a half hours which makes up for the marathon last time. We arrived in hospital at 12:35, she was born within the hour and were home by 5.

A couple of photos attached. I must just say that she's much more beautiful than these pictures do justice. Can I also say, in refernce to picture 2, that it's actually quite an acheivement to qualify as a jedi master when less than 24 hours old. The child is gifted.

50 top albums

A top 50 you say? Well, before I embark on a double-sixer of a response, I feel I must don my cravat and offer a couplet of caveats.

A Night At The Hip-Hopera

A Night at the Hip Hopera was The Kleptones' break-through and most highly acclaimed album which fused Queen's rock music with rap vocals & many sound bites from movies (such as Ferris Bueller's Day Off) and other sources. more..

I would recommend giving this a try, I love it! It seamlessly blends Hip-Hop and Queen in new and interesting ways (like Vanilla Ice only good)

Desktop Tower Defense

Best Game Ever...
Desktop Tower Defense

Very much an 'old school' game, all playability, no fancy graphics. It takes about 15-20 minutes for a game (I'm currently playing on medium difficulty) and it's very addictive.

Bill Hicks on Radio 2.

Phill Jupitus is to present an hour-long documentary about Bill Hicks for Radio Two.

The show, titled the Dark Poet, will air at 10.30pm on Radio 2 on August 21, will chart Hicks’s life from a 15-year-old boy sneaking out of his bedroom window to perform at his local comedy club to his death from pancreatic cancer at the age of 32. ‘Interspersed with live material, it demonstrates why Hicks is still many comedians' favourite stand-up.’
A BBC spokesman said: ‘This documentary charts Bill's fascinating life: his love/hate relationship with America; the continuing censorship of his act; his quest for spirituality; his popularity in Britain; his battle with drink and drugs; and, finally, his battle with cancer.
