I'm having one of those nostalgic days. It's bad to live in the past apparently and I don't usually but perhaps it is Liam's classical piano music playing in the office next door that is bringing it on.

Music is a very strong reminder of things for me. Classical music is always a reminder of my childhood and ballet, which I love watching and used to love doing, and of certain people I met in my adult life.

In my nostalgic mood, I did a search in my emails for some of these people and read the emails we'd sent back and forth with that sad little feeling that creeps in after the "that was so awesome" feeling.

I have, at times, reached out to those people for the sake of what was before but often, people move, people change, you lose contact and the friendship frizzles out and is seldom reignited to be what it was before. It is sad but it is normal I suppose. It is this that drives me to maintain contact with important people so that the friendship doesn't ever frizzle out.

The piano music is amazing though and so I hope he doesn't stop playing it. A few hours of nostalgia never killed anyone and sometimes, I think it's good not to live in the past, but to remember those we've left behind.

Addicted to the "Chuck" series

Hi all. My name is Audrey Harvey and I am addicted to the "Chuck" Series. There! I said it! That's the first step, right?

Alan has 4 seasons of "Chuck" on his external and so it is now my ritual to study, bath and then get into bed early in order to watch an episode or two of "Chuck" before bed.

I knew it had become an addiction when I started feeling funny if I didn't watch an episode before bed. "I can quit anytime!" I thought to myself. Unfortunately, I now find myself thinking about what will happen next in "Chuck" at work, on the way into work and on the way home!

Luckily, I only have one exam left for this semester and one more season of "Chuck" to go and then perhaps, after the withdrawals, my life can return to normal.

Don't fool yourself people. Don't think "Just one now and then won't do any harm." It will creep up on you and before you know it, BAM! It's got you! Don't say I didn't warn you!
