Nice shiny icon of Paul Gross beefcake yummy from slidellra.

Went to computing for the inept; had three inepts, spent one and a 1/2 hours helping said inepts. Library computers =/= secure place to handle your finances via the internet, not helped by computers handling like slugs.

I did get some "book sale" books for nothing, though. Including "Linger Awhile" by Hoban, which I have been lusting over ever since I read "The Bat Tattoo" (beyond good), he also wrote "the Mouse and his child" (I think), lots of good things.

The Gardens were full of a two-day Hellfire Corner / 1940's event thing. We had singing, lindy hop demonstrations, air cadets, lots of very enthusiastic people with their collections of military vehicles and I think I know where Jack Harkness gets his coat from. ;-) Seriously, I couldn't see a price and we all know what rule number one is. The link google gave me to try and explain Hellfire Corner (otherwise known as many good reasons not to be in Dover 1939-45) actually looks really interesting. I like memoire things.

Who was very good at ratchetting up the tension, but the resolution was a little limp. Mummyfrog disagrees and thinks it was good all over. It was the budget lock-everyone-in-a-confined-space episode. Donna - very sensibly - decided to sunbathe instead.
