To be honest I’d not really listened to Show of Hands much before tonight, but went on the recommendation of some friends. It turned out to be a very enjoyable couple of hours of folk music and light-hearted banter at the hands of Steve Knightley, Phil Beer, and Miranda Sykes.
I’m following the first rule.
Standing up for too long at the St George’s Day activities on Saturday wrecked my back again, at one point on Sunday I had to resort to crawling across the room as I couldn’t get up. However two days of painkillers and rest and it’s pretty much back to normal again, and after an hour at the Doctors this morning my painkillers have been restocked for the next few months.
The “partner” film to Flags of our Fathers, portraying the Battle of Iwo Jima from the Japanese perspective.
Looks pretty deliberate to me.
My two weeks off work is finally coming to an end, and to be honest I’ve enjoyed it so much I don’t really want to go back. However I’d soon run out of money if I just stayed at home all the time, so back to work I must go.
I’m also nearing the end of my two-week run through of Battlestar Galactica, it looks like it’ll be a good finale.
Just a quick spin out on the road bike today to try out my new disco slippers. The cleats need a minor adjustment, and they could probably do with a slightly thicker insole as I’m part way between sizes. I only rode out along the Bristol-Bath cycle track as far as Bitton and back, a quick 12 miles in mostly glorious sunshine with a brief stop to wave at the empty steam train.
I must confess that I’m not the greatest fan of Studio Ghibli films although Al and Dan love them. This is the first of three on the list, and the only one I’ve seen before.
Did some washing.
Watched some Family Guy – seen them before.
Watched Red Dwarf part 3 – utter rubbish.
Watched Primeval – which Cutter died?
Watched CSI:NY – bit dull.
Ate first Easter egg (of two).
Crushed tip of thumb with a hammer – painful blood blister.
Power washed chairs, bench, and decking to remove cat vomit.
Rebuilt 456 again, this time with the forks the right way round.
Somehow even more predictable than part 2, but not quite as bad. Did anyone not guess the ending within about 15 minutes of the start of part 1?
