Thud - The Paranoid Android
...musings of a mechanically depressed robot...
It was a quiet weekend all round.

On Saturday I spent an obscene amount of time watching the goggle box. Starting with mindless re-runs of Top Gear on Dave for a couple hours, then watching my horse come third in the Grand National, and finally watching a couple of films for a penny.

The first film I picked was Bridge to Terabithia - What looked like a kids film about a make believe land in a wood... but was probably the most depressing film I've watched in a long time. I'm really not sure what the hell they were aiming for - but they missed.

I cheered myself up with Ocean's Thirteen - I love a good heist film (and I'm mildly amused that my spell checker doesn't know the word heist!)

I did manage to get quite a few of my chores done between watching the TV - and I cooked a proper meal with vegetables and everything!

Sunday started early but settled into the normal routine... with one exception! I took my Thud board game and Dad and I started a couple of games. It was interesting how the tactics developed, and the last game was a very tactical affair and ended quite closely. Wanna play on-line Thud? Create an account and play in the forums!

We watched the last couple of episodes of Spooks and I wandered home about 21:30.

Yesterday was a busy day at work - made a lot worse by my PC playing up. My roaming profile was broken :( but the nice Emma came and fixed it last night. My PC now remembers me and my settings!

Last night was the UK premier of Chuck. I was amused! Geeks and Nerds are "cool" now - who knew? Perhaps this will put a halt on the rise on the morons who are proud of knowing nothing...

... well I can hope can't I?

I watched Bridge to Terabithia on a flight last year sometime ... very very depressing.

You adding Emma after gatecrashing a party is one thing...

My adding Emma after she fixes my machine is a little stalkerish! ;)
