It's a boring night here at work. Everything's going smoothly. That's fine when it comes to the paperwork, computer reports. But I could use some of the live theatre like last night when the security staff (No Slappys here, Ivan!) had to tussle with an unruly drunk who's not even staying here.

Worse, he's the nephew of the guy who owns one of the ancillary businesses here.

So I'm just counting down the hours until I can get home and watch the shows I recorded from Friday night. For me, it's a powerhouse of a lineup for a summer Friday:

'Doctor Who'

As I've already seen the full 13 episode run of this 'Doctor Who' season, I may give that a pass until after my nappies and move directly on to the two comedic detective shows from USA Network. I'm especially curious to learn more about this character that Tim Curry is playing on 'Psych', Nigel St. Nigel.

Sounds like a fake name, doesn't it? Could it be that twenty years earlier he went by the name of Winston Newquay, a record company executive? Even that was an alias as his birth name was Sammy Fishbein.

For some reason those two names have remained lodged in the back of my medulla oblongata for these past twenty years. I guess I just liked how radically different they were from each other.

So anyway, I want to see if I can make the theoretical claim that Nigel is Winston/Sammy, taking on a new life in the music biz.....
