I don’t want to say too much about it, except GO TO SEE IT, NOW!

As a result, the Government has come up with a draft Freedom of Information (Parliament) Order 2009, which is being voted on tomorrow. This legislation, which Harriet Harman claims to be a "significant enhancement in transparency" will effectively exempt details of MPs’ expenses from the Freedom of Information Act. It will also act retroactively, nullifying any pending Freedom of Information requests still in the system.
I saw a different production of this show on Broadway, a couple of years ago, and it was fantastic.
This year’s show was Wicked, which tells the story of the Wizard of Oz from the witches’ point of view – in particular the "Wicked" witch Elphaba.
Recently I was persuaded to open an LJ account so I could participate in some discussion for an event I am involved with. Despite the statement that the LJ account was for access only, and would not be updated, I was surprised that several people signed up as friends, and others said they were intending to.

No, it is not a sequel to Jim Carrey’s movie, although it is almost as funny.
While I was away for the holidays, my CPAP mask split. Fortunately it happened towards the end of the holiday, and I managed to make a running repair, which got me through the last couple of days. I keep a couple spare at home, so once I got back, I was fine.
However, I’ll now use it as an opportunity to rant about the medical supplies industry in the UK.

I’ve been asked to help out on percussion for some friends who are playing a gig in February. Thinking back, it has been over a year since I last played the drums. Anyway, the kit has been retrieved from the garage and is now set up in the lounge, and I need to build up with some practice every day.
Then it occurred to me – this is exercise, no? Doing a web search came up with various calorific values for drumming, but for now I am going to take a very conservative view and record it as 4 kcals per minute.
Every little helps.

Things were going fairly well in 2008, until I went on holiday in September. I was not net-connected while away, so just decided to ‘eat sensibly’, and not worry about SYD.
However, when I got back, I didn’t get straight back into SYD again. Up until the holiday, I had been pretty good at keeping my meals logged, but on my return… well, a week went by, then two weeks, with me always thinking ‘I’ll start again next week’.
Around December, I think, I rebooted, but after a couple of days stopped again.
So now I am back with a vengeance, and determined to keep it up.Unfortunately, all the good work I did last year has been undone, and I am heavier than I have been for a while – although I seem to have hungonto my general fitness, which is something. However, from last year, I now know I can lose weight, so it is just a case of getting back up on that (figurative) horse again.
