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 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
Battlestar Galactica - the mini series,
Battlestar Galactica - Series One (can you see a trend here) and
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
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.
