I left my wallet at home and had to make a mad dash back at tea-break to get it, fuming all the way.  Then I got to see the wife and two sprogs, who had all been asleep when I left, and realised my good fortune.

Thanks for the diabetes.

Yes, apologies, it was a rather ghastly Hallmark moment.

I was watching the Harry Potter film Half Blood Prince on the Box Office channel last night. Well, Not really, I wasn't following the story at all. Was in a bit of a modd, and moved onto the computer to play abit of Batman : Arkam Asylum while my turning head every now and then to see what was happening.

Apparently each  of the Harry Potter films in turn have shrug off some more of theirs childish coil. I don't think it's really much of childrens movie anymore. Granted, I know the kids who grew up wathing Harry Potter will still be watching and might even be enjoying this. As alot of them have grown in the process.

It's like watching Alien's or some depressing movie about boarding school. Even the light filtering murkier trying to acheive  this new level of being a movie for grown ups who perhaps more interested in drama than magic.

Anyway, couldn't follow what going  on missed most of the film and was about to watch it's second veiwing when I just passed out on the couch. Wasting the five dollars.
 
I might have prefered to watch Wolverine: Origins

It's better than X-Men 3, but that isn't really saying very much.  Good bits to it, but I wouldn't have paid to see it.

Having taken the eldest neice to see this one, I quite liked it.  Apparently theres a very major change from the book  which *I* think makes the whole thing work VERY well.  Pay attention next time Thylly, you might enjoy it.

Bryan Singer is directing the next X-Men film. X2 is probably my favourite superhero movie and I actually like Superman Returns but I can't get too excited just because TLS and (to a much lesser extent) XMO: Wolverine sucked so much.

I just nipped out to post cards to the owners of my local barber's and hardware store and popped into Tesco for some more last-minute non-essentials. Some woman was out trying to buy satsumas on Christmas Eve (!). No chance. I bought mine a week if not longer ago.
 :lol:
I went through the self-scan checkouts, which is normally against my principles because I don't work for Tesco and nor do I want to do anyone out of a job, but I made an exception because I was just pleased to able to get any shopping done today. As it happened, my going through that checkout saved me very little time but cost Tesco a fair bit in time, assistance and goodwill, so the cosmic balance is restored. The bagging area wasn't big enough for my 16 items. The software got confused when I took my full bag off the scales to fit a second bag on in its place, and the message kept alternating between 'unrecognized item in bagging area please remove it before proceeding' and 'item removed from bagging area please replace it before proceeding,' so I was stuck in a loop and had to summon assistance (again).

I think my dislike of self-scanning checkouts is vindicated, and I shall continue not to use them in the future, with a vengeance.
STRIKE !!!

Spending the day seeing how many knob shaped cacti you can hide in a detailed layout drawing of an mad scientist's greenhouse.

There are tougher jobs available.

While the wife and I watched the second episode of 3 Men in a Boat I heard a familiar tune. Just as the 3 bods began a race at about the 20 minute point the backing track was from the Judge Dredd film, how weird.
Amazingly the wife was not impressed with my fact when I told her ::)

I have no complaints with those rollover Tatsunoko vs Capcom ads.
