    who lives in a pineapple under the sea?



    No?


    Sorry, with that opening that was all I could come up with.
    “But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
    "Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat. "We’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
    "How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.
    "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”

    Yeah, creepy, but some wonderful images there. The abandoned dance hall on the second page brings definite ideas to mind.

    I was just watching a David Attenborough bug-umentary. Baby octopus is so much cuter than anything I saw.

    It's going to be a sad day when he finally dies. Kind of difficult to imagine the nature documentary without him.

I know - you'll say, but it was John Carter. But when we went to see HP: Deathly Hollows 1 the week after it came out, we also had a theatre to ourselves with 4 people. I tell you.... if I didn't have to work today, I'd have gone to the midnight showings.

    Oh, and John Carter wasn't bad. I rather enjoyed it. I was quite doubtful.
    I almost never go to evening showings, certainly not after work. (I'm very much a morning person, so I'd be in danger of dozing off if I watched a movie after a day at work.) So I go to weekend matinees, or weekday matinees if I have a day off work, so there are fewer people around. And maybe the cinemagoers of Camberley, Woking or Guildford are well-behaved - the same goes for the London cinemas I tend to go to.

    That said, a good example of an evening showing was Aliens, on its opening Monday evening at the Odeon Leicester Square - a full house in a cinema which seats 1980, in 70mm turned up loud. Quite an experience, when that many people jump all at the same time!

    First time I saw Alien, was on HBO. I am slightly embarrassed to say that the only reason I watched it was for Sigourney Weaver in her underwear.

    I was like 13, gimme a break.

    Morning cantina

    It's foggy in reality. I can hardly see the houses in the next street. Thinking it through, to be honest, that doesn't really bother me.

    Today there will be fresh bread and apple pie. If you want some be sure to turn up early. You best bring some sort of decorating tool too, we seem to be doing a lot in this area at the moment.

    Looking forward to working on my character bio later. I'm really getting into this now. I've got lots of areas of conflict, and I keep sitting there thinking, oo, I can do this to her too. I've decided that she's 15, but she's never going to be Tiffany Aching - I'm not that nice.

    Good Morning Friends!

    I've got a fun day planned of shopping (for baby stuff) and going to see THG with my sister. I rarely go to the movies because A) it's WAY too expensive and B) home is so much more comfortable. But we'll be going in the afternoon sometime so hopefully it won't be too bad.

    Re morning folks. I fell back asleep only to be waken by the Very Bright sun right after 8am. Remembering that I wanted to see what parts of my front yard were sunny at 8 this time of year, I dragged myself out of bed. By the time I brushed my teeth and such, it was horribly overcast. Grrr.

    Gary- I has your email will reply later.

    Re shitty salesmen- I've met three already in this town. I'm a bit annoyed but going to brave new dealers today.

    I'm sure many of you follow this blog, and if you don't you should. But this latest entry made me laugh so I thought I'd share.

    Yeah, that totally tripped me up late last night, and I actually went so far as to reload the dratted page before I looked at it enough to figure it out.

    Well, I *wasn't* until you suggested it.

    “But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
    "Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat. "We’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
