Blue Red

Thursday

Had my front bottom tooth out yesterday so I am now sat here with a falsey in! It wasn't at all painful and it was over really quickly, I think the dentists speech of what was about to happen lasted longer than the tooth removal!

He put his fingers in my mouth and went
"Oh!"
to which I quickly replied
"Oh what?"
He laughed and answered
"Well! That's your tooth out!"

He's discussed an option for me to think about over the next couple of months - He can fit me a brace to close the gap as I do have a lot of crossed teeth then I won't have to wear the falsey anymore.

I wonder if I will get in the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest brace wearer!

He did tell me a few years ago that I was by far his oldest patient to have sprouted their first wisdom tooth. He said he'd given up the thought that they would ever come through.

Anyway that should be an end to all the tooth infection problems I've been having. Thank goodness!
Adam

Torchwood

I've been catching up over the last couple of days on the last four episodes of the first series. I recorded then from BBC 3 just before Christmas and then for the life of me could not find them anywhere! Then after I'd watched them I found the "They Keep Killing Suzie" episode. I thought that that was a really good idea to bring her back, as her part in the first episode seemed strange and a bit sudden.
Loved Iando and Jacks comment about things you can do with a stop watch!

Then last night watched the two episodes first on BBC2 and then next weeks on BBC3. I really enjoyed the Adam character, I just love mind manipulation stuff! Plus it was an added bonus that he was a hot strawberry blond. I missed the first few minites of the programme and thought "What? who's he?" It's on again tonight so I'm going to watch the beginning to see what I missed. I really enjoyed it but my friend commented afterwards that it was a strange episode as it didn't move the storyline or the characters forward, seeing how they all forget and then it's as though those two days never happened. Ha! Maybe Reece ought to remind them all. Although he didn't know about Adam he obvioulsy knew something was up and when they all can't remember the last two days he's going to find it all a bit odd.

As for Reset, I'll not spoil it for those without digital, but it was really good to see Martha.  Her conversation with Ianto was an absolute treasure. As for the end I had to shout  'Oohh nooo surely not!"  at the telly.  It can't really just end like that. We shall have to see what happens in the next episode.

Ashes To Ashes

Just finished watching it and OMG did that bring back memories.

The day before the Royal wedding was my birthday and for weeks before I had been pestering my mom and dad  to let me go down to London to go to the Blitz club (where alex went) with my friends for my birthday! My dad flatly refused.

It was funny that they had their information right having Boy George working as the cloak room attendant and Steve Strange on stage. I also noticed that they had other famous look alike characters in the background.

All the music sends me right back to that time -  all the new romantic stuff  and other bits,
'I hear you now' by Jon & Vangellis,
'Money' by The Flying Lizards
'Fade to gray' by Visage
'Swords Of A Thousand Men' by Tenpole Tudor
'Geno' by Dexy's Midnight Runners
'Fascist Groove Thing' by Heaven 17
'Souvenir' by OMD
'Gercha' by Chas and Dave
and of course 'Ashes to Ashes' which cleverly uses the David Bowie Perriot as a theme running throughout the programme.

I do think Alexs outfits are bit on the prostitute side of that years fashion though - and she's had several chances to change out of her clothes. The material and colours are right, but for her, with her hair style, she would have been more of a blue satin jumpsuit woman, or even satin leggings. Skinny jeans were the new trend after the end of flares and I remember sewing all the legs of my jeans up so skin tight I used to get knee ache as there wasn't even enough room to bend them!

And what a beautiful De'lorean - but I'm sure the Audi Quattro they drive didn't appear until about '85ish

As for Rupert Graves I actually started to fancy him during this year!
