Tune in

So, anybody think this will air in the US?

America: An empire to rival Rome?
In a new six-part series entitled Age of Empire, the BBC's Jonathan Marcus sets out on a journey to examine America's place in the modern world.

Like... Hmmm! I see from the note this is a BCC Radio Production, so perhaps if I were really persistant I could listen over net radio or something. The public radio station/s in Atlanta are extremely music-heavy and don't broadcast a lot of BBC stuff.

ADDENDUM: Oh, I think I found it online!

Holy sh*t

So I got a new checking account 3 weeks ago, and due to a screw up, had not received my checkbook or debit/credit card and thus couldn't pay any bills or spend much money at all.

Well, Saturday the card came and today I got my checks.

Maybe I shouldn't have been so eager (desperate!) to get it, because as soon as I got it, and started writing out payment for all the piled-up bills, I found I had $2700 in bills to pay! Aaaaargh! Most of it was regular expenses, like mortage and condo fee, but then there were 3-4 different insurance / doctor bills, one of which was for like $500. This comes just as I was beginning to feel confident and happy in my income this month.

Oh, well, guess I can consider this paid for by last month and hang on that fact I already know I'm due for bare minimum $3000 in client payments next month (invoices are already written), so it shouldn't be so bad next time.

But whoah, you know writing checks like that makes me ill.

On the BRIGHT side of spending money, this morning I got a FABULOUS new hair cut. Like... wow! That was worth it and in fact much cheaper than I expected for that particular salon. Definitley pleased!

New Hair Order

Well, since dadi asked for it, and (let's be honest) I probably would've got around to it anyway, here are pics of my new haircut. The color looks totally different, since the brightest blonds were cut off and there's more of the darker (and my natural haircolor) mixed in. MUCH happier. That cut from that German guy in Bonn was OK for old ladies, but...
