Last night we started an attempt at working our way through the top movies as listed on IMDB yesterday evening. I’m not sure we’ll make it through those we already own out of the top 250, so we’ll probably aim for just the top 100 to start with.
To kick things off we watched Full Metal Jacket. I’d forgotten quite how many quotes from the film have made their way into popular culture.
It’s just gone past 30oC in the office. Even with the tiny windows open, and two fans blowing air at me, it’s just too hot to concentrate on anything properly. It’s one of the downsides of being stuck in what is probably the worst office in the building.
15:30: it’s up to 33oC now, but it’s just started raining which might help a bit.
The Dead Kennedys were right.
Some clown in Sacramento was dragged into court
He shot his lawnmower
It disobeyed, it wouldn’t start
Might makes right, it’s the American way
They fined him $60 and sent him on his way
You know, some people don’t take no shit
Maybe if they did they’d have half a brain left
It’s L’Alpe d’Huez day today in the tour, so on the spur of the moment I’ve booked the afternoon off work so I can sit in front of the TV and watch all the action. Should be fun.
It certainly looks like it, and I hope it’s here to stay for a while.
I headed out on the 69er tonight for a spin round the Uni with Al. It’s nice to be riding dusty1 trails in glorious sunshine for a change. A quick 11 miles, then home for a pizza washed down with ice cold lager.
 Well, mostly dusty.
However, given that my goal was “do nothing”, it wasn’t really that difficult.
