So Christian Marillat decided against working with the seventeen-strong Debian GNOME Team and orphaned all of his packages in dramatic style, spreading the orphan message across the changelogs of all the packages.
This is good, as the GNOME Team generally agrees on a way of working which Christian doesn't agree with, i.e. pushing GNOME 2.6 into Sid now on the assumption that there won't be any problems with it. We're currently building GNOME 2.6 into Experimental, and have his a nasty GTK+ 2.4 bug, where it crashes on startup. Eek.

Ban(e)d Fish Water
Got back from work Friday evening find Griswald, one of our fish, laying on the bottom of the tank. No idea why he died, he was the youngest of the fish, so I hope the others (Talula and Sid) are not going to die soon too.
The band we've hired for our wedding reception also called Friday afternoon...
"Hi, this is Alex from Indigo Jazz. We've a small problem... the singer and her drummer husband are emigrating to Australia."
And up to now the planning was going so well... and now it starts. They are auditioning new band members now so we should be okay...
Finally, Coca Cola are making a right mess out of selling Peckham Springs. Fooling people.
