This weekend's been a good one for discovering things I like. The films I've been renting from Blockbuster recently have either been Ewan McGregor ones or really popular ones. The really popular ones I've hated and Ewan McGregor doesn't half make odd films (but I only have four of his films to go, including one... Continue reading
I read a comic shocker
At the weekend I read a comic! Well, I think it was technically a graphic novel, either way it's short and has pictures that get in the way.

I had a good weekend - well, half a good weekend. I went to High Wycombe to drop off some knickers and other stuff for Knickers 4 Africa and go to 's ex-local bookshop. Where I saw her parents and spent £17 on books - that was being restrained. I'm still working through the books... Continue reading
