Happy Saints' Day.

Did anyone receive any 'Cyril and Methodius' gifts or cards? How about sending something?

I hope that if you didn't that you're not too bitter; but if you are I don't want to hear how pleased you are not to have to spend out on commercial tat. Despite the fact that it is a reasonable excuse it probably doesn't reflect your true feelings.

Personally I think it's good if people wish to celebrate the feast days of the saints in style. This article in the Metro amused me. (Incidentally, I might be pleased that I get a seat on the bus in the mornings these days, but I do miss the Metro).

I've had quite a mellow evening with housemates and friends watching the Brit Awards, and it's been good. Amy Winehouse is more attractive than I first thought, but I am very disconcerted by her deep voice. Russell Brand, in the words of Huce, is a tit. I couldn't have put it better myself. And has anyone else noted Liam Gallagher's small bald patch?

Incidentally the photograph is of one of my housemates. He is neither Cyril nor Methodius.

I wished every Methodist that I met today a happy St. Methodius' day, as it would be fitting if he was their patron. When I led the midday office I used their collect from the book (although we went for the 1 Corinthians 13 bit about love as the reading, for any romantics in the congo.) - is your chum pretending to be one of the Slavs converted by the blessed siblings?
