purple broccoli

I'd never seen or heard of brocolli being purple before Sunday night. Apparently it's been growing in our garden and I didn't even know about it until it turned up on my plate! It tasted fine though. Still not understanding why it needs to be purple...

I saw 36 Quai des Orfèvres, or 36 as the title is in English. I kind of knew from the start I'd have trouble following and I did. I think I understood most of it though, with a little help from Mr S. I liked the music too, even if it was a little overbearing. Hopefully I get to see Little Fish tomorrow with my swimming friend!

I've also given in and signed up to a phone contract. I get a snazzy new phone for quite a bargain really and so many free minutes that I don't know what I'm going to do with. I'll be sad to see my little old one go, although it'll have a new life in Tenerife, so that's good.

I discovered new music that I like. I heard Don't Bring Me Down at the end of 36... You can listen to some of her music here Sia. I especially like Breathe Me too:

Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
I hurt myself again today
And, the worst part is there's no-one else to blame

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
I'm needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Breathe Me is what they play at the end of the last episode of Six Feet Under. It's very, very sad.

It's going abroad for a new life with a Spanish SIM card (so that my M&D can use it out there when they go).

I'm SO TIRED! Worked on the buffet at the races today (but did get a tip from an elderly man who wanted big portions of everything... just a quid though!)
