Three things:

• I love my gel manicure machine. My nails are now green for the next fortnight.

• Have you ever had damson vodka with elderflower tonic? I'm drinking it now and it's exceptional.

• Did no one watch the Olympics opening ceremony? I only saw a bit but it looked wonderful — all line drawing animation and seafaring.

That's all.

Actually, also:

• The HTML isn't working for me here. Is it weird? I'm setting my image width and it's being ignored. My hand was not meant to be displayed larger than actual size.
