Holiday - The Paranoid Android
...musings of a mechanically depressed robot...

Holiday
I took a few days of work. I've really had enough of the dodgy politics of it all - and certain work colleagues were driving me nuts.

I met Dora yesterday afternoon and we played pool. She told me to listen to the Easy Star All-Stars... so I grabbed a couple albums of theirs from iTunes and I'm listening to them (it's always best if you do what Dora tells you to do!)... a reggae version of Dark Side of the Moon and OK Computer... yeah - really... and it's actually quite good.

Last night I watched Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within - "the first animated feature to seriously attempt photo realistic CGI humans" as they say Wiki style I caught the last 5 minutes of it on the TV Saturday night which prompted a text conversation with Misty and led all the way to pool with Dora... it's a butterfly effect!

Today I sodded about on the computer for a while... showered while my kitchen nearly burned down and then went shopping in Romford! It was a successful trip - I got a new badminton ratchet, trainers, tracksuit bottoms, socks, and shoes. Exactly what I set out to get - and with plenty of time to spare... so much so that I popped into Game and ended up getting an extra controller and nunchuk for the Wii. So I can't just get what I set out to get... whoops.

I was still finished early so I was in the Spoons about 30 minutes before 6... My drinking bud was the only other whinger tonight - so we just whinged to each other!

I think I shall now go to bed. :)

Hurrah for the All Stars!! It's just so... surprising how fantastic they are. I got invited to see them in concert, and I thought, for a laugh, why not. Why not, indeed! Yayness! Grooviness! And all the restness!

And hurrah for pool!

Re: Showered while......

See - I had this brilliant idea... I'd put the oven on and then take a shower while it warmed up. Then I would actually really be putting my meal into a preheated oven rather than the usual turned on a minute ago oven.

The I showered... and then I forgot.

And about an hour later I returned to the kitchen to find a smoking oven! :)
