Another long gap between posts. I thought I'd managed to get into the habit of updating much more regularly than this but ho hum . . .

Firstly, a news update.
    Last week [ profile] 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 and got for myself


Battlestar Galactica - the mini series,
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 . . .

    Some quick links.

Curious co-habitation at the zoo

and something that sounds interesting

January 27th is the Second Annual

LiveJournal Rabbit Hole Day!

Because we can pretend that the world makes sense the other 364 days of the year.

This caught my attention and since I've just watched 'The Matrix' again it seemed kind of appropriate.


SF meme )

Interesting to see how many of the (so-called) influential films I've seen and of them, how many I'd still lilke to own. but then I always was greedy ;>

On to home news, Anna and I are about to be offered the (red?) right hand of friendship at church as we have been accepted into membership.

Hmm, guess this means I'm about to become a Baptist! So far in my christian lilfe I've been non-denominational, with my church's being of an independant nature. Not that it really makes any difference but it feels a little . . . odd? Really not sure why though and it's definitly not in a bad way. I guess it's not something I'd ever really given a great deal of thought to.

Finished Neil Gaimans 'Anansi Boys' last night and have to say . . . Anansi boys review )

Now I've finished 'Anansi Boys' though, I really, really want to tell stories again. I just havn't had an original idea since about sometime in '97 and it was even longer ago that I sat down and told a group of kids a story (the best time I had doing that was telling watered down Sandman stories at a bible week in Scotland. Me and the kids had a blast). I am going to have to do something about this, I'm just not sure what? (Suggestions on a post card to . . .)
