Firstly, a news update.
Last week graceunplugged and I were formally accepted into membership at Hoole Baptist Church, where we've been going for the last year or so. I really don't like talking in front of people and for this we had to give a little introduction to ourselves before the whole congregation, not fun but not as bad as I'd feared. I havn't come from a church background that includes membership of the church as something extra, to my mind it always was 'if you come to the church, then your a member', so this is something a bit new to my way of thinking.
Next, birthday goodies! I finally decided what to get with my birthday money, yes it has taken me ages to decide but there's just so much I'd like and so little money ;) I finally put in my shipping order to Play.com and got for myself
1) Battlestar Galactica - the mini series,
2) Battlestar Galactica - Series One (can you see a trend here) and
3) X-Men 2 (2 disk edition)
I haven't managed to watch any of them yet, too much overtime last week, but hopefully soon. We also used up some christmas vouchers on saturday getting Spiderman 2 at an incredibly low price, so I have much sci-fi/comic book goodness ahead of me.
Thinking of things sci-fi. I'm really enjoying 'Threshold' on Sky at the moment. The stories seem to be uping the ante each week and every little victory uncovers a darker threat. The 'they are among us' vibe get's a bit overplayed in the ad's and opening credits but doesn't overpower the episodes in a 'red's under the beds' kind of way. I't a shame that it's been cancelled mid-season but thems the breaks.
Also on the goggle box, House is back on Channel 5! Watched the first episode over the weekend and it was just as good as ever. BBC2's Hyperdrive improved in it's second episode but then considering the first was really, really bad then thats not too hard. I'll watch the 3rd but unless there is a great improvement . . . Jonathan Ross's Asian Invasion is rapidly filling up my Sky + box with films I want to watch but I know I'm never going to get the chance.
There is just far too much to watch on tv at the moment, I need some time for a real life beyond work and tv, don't I?
And finally . . .
