... OK, it was actually on the way to work but that just doesn't have quite the same ring to it somehow.

Anyway. On the train this morning, somewhere between dozing and daydreaming with various random thoughts running through my head - did I double lock the door? Do I have to finish that report this week or next? Why do I feel comparatively lousier on Wednesday mornings than any other day of the week? - the bloke sitting across from me is on his mobile giving what sounds like mortgage advice to someone. I was listening in the way that you do in that situation where you can hear the entire conversation but you aren't actually registering anything about it and couldn't repeat it on pain on death 10 seconds later. The random thought meandering its way across my brain at this point was to do with when Torchwood was likely to be scheduled when the part of my brain that's actually filtering the phone conversation suddenly goes WHAT! and plays back the last sentence:

Bloke-on-phone: You're working at the moment, yeah? Still on Torchwood?

From this point on I was of course shamelessly eavesdropping. Sadly nothing else on the subject was mentioned but I do now know more about 100% mortgages than I ever wanted to (and the fact that the unidentified Torchwood person is buying with a partner) and also quite a bit about the love life of Sarah-who's-working-at-the-National.

Yes, I was tempted to ask but restrained myself.
