First, a little amusement.

Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You?

A focused advisor whose actions are dictated by almost pure logic, you believe in exploring the fascinating possibilities around you.
Logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.

Spock is a character in the Star Trek universe. His biography is available at Nimoy.com. (Actually, it isn't. It just goes to one of those annoying ads link sites, but then cut and paste is as cut and paste does)



Wouldn't have said I was like him myself but then if the internet says it it must be true ;)

I really ought to update this much more regularly than I do. Because if I did, I wouldn't need to cram in that we've recently


  • been up to Edinburgh for the week, where we went to Roslyn Chapel  (made famous once again thanks to 'The Da Vinci Code')  and to an exhibition of photographs by  Henri Cartier Bresson who is the photographer that I most admire and who's work I love the most. We also met up with Anna's sister, Elspeth who's living there, and oh yes, Anna was there working at the Christian Resources Exhibition

  • had two blow-outs of tyres on Anna's car (only damage done was to the tyres, thankfully)
  • been to see 'Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-rabbit', which is an absolutely, hysterically, wonderful film which should be seen by everyone at their first opportunity (as well as their second, third and fourth)

  • also been to see Tim Burton's 'The Corpse Bride', which is a beautiful piece of stop motion animation, with a great line up of voice talent (Christopher Lee is his usual excellently scary self) and a good fairy tale story, although the songs tend to hamper the flow in places.

  • recieved my copy of 'To Charles Fort, with  love' by Caitlin.R.Kiernan from Subterranean Press. All I need to do now though is to finish Alec Guiness's biography and I can start it. Have to say that I am really enjoying the biography, even if it does seem to overstress some areas of his life (ie. his homosexuality, not a problem in itself but when it is mentioned and alluded to several times in practically every chapter then I think that the author is trying to make his point too heavy handedly) and skip past others (his work for Ealing studios is covered in a couple of paragraphs). It is encouraging to know that someone as talented as him was at times troubled with self doubt and was a very human person. It does give hope to the rest of us.
  • had numerous people round for a meal or staying with us, and this coming week we have Anna's god-daughter (and her parents) staying with us. The house has been made safe to a two and a half year old (hopefully) and my vasectomy appointment has been pencilled in for the start of November.
Also www.mediafiend.co.uk is begining to take shape. Well, we've got a couple of pages up that work (mostly) but ut's a start considering how long we've had the name. So if you want to go see the webcomics I read on a regular basis then the page is there.
