The weekend's not over for me until after I've watched tonight's episodes of The Amazing Race, Desperate Housewives and Mad Men. Then I'll start lamenting.

On the contrary, those are some of my favourite shows, I'm just lamenting that I have to work today after a wild weekend of adventure gaming, laundry, shoe shopping and horn polishing/sharpening . Sunday night is prime TV-watching night for me, given that I hardly watch anything nowadays. However, I am sad that this is the last season of Housewives.

I think that can only be a warning that the world will end before Friday night.

Or maybe a threat? What do you have planned Mr Lacey?!

I used to dream and I used to vow, I wouldn't dream of it now.

...and who made me a big success and brought me wealth and fame?
Nikolai Ivanovich Lobachevsky was his name.

And it was after that that I found out the truth. I learnt the
truth last November - on the third of November, to be precise
- and I remember every instant since. It was a gloomy
evening, one of the gloomiest possible evenings. I was going
home at about eleven o'clock, and I remember that I thought
that the evening could not be gloomier. Even physically.
Rain had been falling all day, and it had been a cold, gloomy,
almost menacing rain, with, I remember, an unmistakable
spite against mankind. Suddenly between ten and eleven it
had stopped, and was followed by a horrible dampness,
colder and damper than the rain, and a sort of steam was
rising from everything, from every stone in the street, and
from every by-lane if one looked down it as far as one could.
A thought suddenly occurred to me, that if all the street
lamps had been put out it would have been less cheerless,
that the gas made one's heart sadder because it lighted it all
up. I had had scarcely any dinner that day, and had been
spending the evening with an engineer, and two other friends
had been there also. I sat silent - I fancy I bored them. They
talked of something rousing and suddenly they got excited
over it. But they did not really care, I could see that, and
only made a show of being excited. I suddenly said as much
to them. "My friends," I said, "you really do not care one
way or the other." They were not offended, but they laughed
at me. That was because I spoke without any not of
reproach, simply because it did not matter to me. They saw
it did not, and it amused them.

As I was thinking about the gas lamps in the street I
looked up at the sky. The sky was horribly dark, but one
could distinctly see tattered clouds, and between them
fathomless black patches. Suddenly I noticed in one of these
patches a star, and began watching it intently. That was
because that star had given me an idea: I decided to kill
myself that night. I had firmly determined to do so two
months before, and poor as I was, I bought a splendid
revolver that very day, and loaded it. But two months had
passed and it was still lying in my drawer; I was so utterly
indifferent that I wanted to seize a moment when I would not
be so indifferent - why, I don't know. And so for two months
every night that I came home I thought I would shoot myself.
I kept waiting for the right moment. And so now this star
gave me a thought. I made up my mind that it should
certainly be that night. And why the star gave me the
thought I don't know.
