Is it Christmas yet?

Am I having fun yet?
Last night Jane and I met Jane and Roy at the Saddle for a meal. It was good-old fashioned pub food and bloody good value for money.
We met at 6 o'clock and left at about 8:30. We spent the rest of the evening at Jane and Roy's. I got to bed at half past midnight - not good for a school night at all.
However, I enjoyed every minute of it.

This afternoon we're taking Sophie to the vets to find out why she's lost weight. She's bright enough and, as far as I can see, shows no other signs of being ill.
I'm not looking forward to this, Tortie's demise is still far too recent for comfort.

Pimp my browser

As sbissonSimon has asked, I'll reply - here.

Here's the Firefox extensions that I'm using:

  • Adsense Notifier - regular updates on your Google Adsense earnings on your status bar

  • Flickr Fox - Flickr browsing in the sidebar

  • Sage - A lightweight RSS and Atom feed reader in the sidebar

  • FasterFox - Performance and Network tweaks for Firefox

  • Web Developer - An invaluable tool for me when I'm laying out pages using CSS

  • Grease Monkey - Add your own (or other people's) DHTML to sites. There's some great scripts for Flickr and Geobloggers

  • Spell Bound - Check your spelling in any form field. This is by far and away my favourite Firefox extension.

  • IE Tab - Open Internet Explorer in a Firefox tab. A status bar icon allows you to toggle between IE and Firefox rendering

  • Livejournal friends checker (Beta) - Notification on the status bar when your Livejournal Friends page changes

  • Abstract Mouse - Backup and share bookmarks on Abstract Mouse. Bookmarks can be marked Public, Friends Only, or Private
