The Long Road

We are at the end of another week. We are at the beginning of another week. Both of these contradictory statements hold a degree of truth for me. I have always thought of Sunday as being the last day of the week – but, for where I work, Sunday is the first day of the week. And because I like a degree of consistency I tend to mark my time in that way too. And the reason you are getting this short post today is because I ran out of time.

If I can quote a show I love and have it make some as semblance of sense I will.

The other day, when I might otherwise have been blogging, I was prepping for a job interview. I have had the interview now and I think it went well. It is always hard to tell being interviewed is like being on the most awkward date ever. So since I won’t know anything about the job for a little over a week I am trying to put it out of my mind.

Not the best quality but it is hear for the dialogue.

Paul Darrow died on Monday. I know him from Blake’s 7 playing Avon. Avon was a wonderful character and easily my favourite. Here are some of his best bits. Blake’s 7 was a most enjoyable show. It was made on a shoestring budged but had a good cast and some fun stories – following the adventures of a group of criminals as they fight the evil Federation.

Don’t you just love TV theme tunes.

I couldn’t substantiate the quote but I remember one of the creators of Blake’s 7 saying they had the budget for each episode that Star Trek had for its tea break.

So while this is a short post this week I have at least given you a show to watch (or re-watch) and next time the post that is currently in draft will be up. I hope you have a great week ahead.

I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.
