Watched and read book. Am I alone in liking the concepts of Terry Pratchetts world, but disliking the actual stories? I am beginning to believe like claiming to read Playboy for the articles, I read Pratchett for the footnotes.
Finally, five months after leaving due to burst water tank, furniture back in house and we're rearranging everything, assisted by GothGirl. Bad news is it seems 26" LCD succumbed to water damage after we thought it was ok, so will have to contact Loss Adjuster again.
Have just discovered that I have over 3,000 books. Took 4 people 5 hours to reload the bookcases. Is this excessive?
Some months ago anonimouse had a date that didn't work out. Reading email recieved over XMas I found an apology for certain events. I'm still trying to figure out if this is a "let's try again" message or just a general festive apology clearout. Sent an apology accepted and best wishes reply and will see what transpires. Am I alone in dating people who tell me they were awful several weeks/months after they split up and want to try again? Or am I a date crash junkie?
MusicGirl is going through a "moody cow" phase, so think will leave alone. Memo to self: buying large XMas presents for ex-girlfriends is bad idea, even if it is as test bed for your own present to yourself.
To a certain person who anonimouse "diagnosed" incorrectly.
What I read and watched
Hannibal Rising by Thomas Harris.
An enjoyable read as a post war Lector seeks revenge on the people responsible for the death of his parents. I get the impression that Thomas Harris is mellowing Lector out and making his actions seem perfectly reasonable, only seeming to kill "bad" people.
House with Hugh Laurie. Sort of a medical CSI. I'm sure diagnosis bears no relation to real medical practise but enjoyable
Tru Calling with Eliza Dushku. Yum. Probably not the best Sci fi series in the world, but Eliza Dushku beats Sarah Jane Honeywell hands down, so I don't care.
New Years Resolution
Ban chocolate and lose 2 stone before the middle of the year.
Buy system to run Medieval 2: Total War on adequately. 1.7GHz Pentium 4 laptop is not man enough. Build PVR system.
Anyone recommend a good movie to go to?
