Cute overload

Wednesday night

I had nothing much organised, for once, so I took the opportunity to spend some quality time with tinyjo. She cooked me a delicious meal, then we sat around drinking a bottle of decent red wine watching cartoons and chatting, followed by the start of the first season of West Wing. Neither of us had seen WW before, though we'd kind of been meaning to for ages, not least because various mates recommend it highly. We were both really impressed: a good concept, and the acting, scripting and direction were all top-notch. On the whole, it was a really enjoyable evening. We must do it again some time soon.

Currently I'm catching up with Achewood. It rocks, though you should probably start reading it from the beginning...

Thursday night

I had nothing much organised, for once, so I took the opportunity to spend some quality time with archie. He cooked me a delicious meal, then we sat around drinking a bottle of decent red wine watching cartoons and chatting, followed by Monsters Inc. Neither of us had seen MI before, though we'd kind of been meaning to for ages, not least because various mates recommend it highly. We were both really impressed: a good concept, and the acting, scripting and direction were all top-notch. On the whole, it was a really enjoyable evening. We must do it again some time soon.

A break-through!

I have just made an incredible discovery! You may have noticed that I've been severely slipping in my resolution to post every day. Today, I have suddenly realised why. The problem is not that I'm a lazy arse suffer from Effort Deficit Disorder, nor that I'm too busy to post. The problem is that my life is just too damn diverse, a messy melange of gigs, clubs, films and friends. Now, up until now I had though this a good thing, but I've just enjoyed two very pleasant evenings, and utilising my programmer code-reuse skills have produced two (2) posts about them with a minimum of additional effort. All I have to do is make sure my life continues to follow this pattern, and I can have fun and talk about it on my journal with maximum efficiency.

But this is only the start. To demonstrate the full power of this awesome discovery, I will now post about... MY FUTURE!

Friday night
We had been organised, for once, so took the opportunity to spend some quality time with tinyjo's family. They cooked me a delicious meal, then we sat around drinking a bottle of decent red wine chatting, followed by Jeremy Hardy. I hadn't seen JH before, though I'd kind of been meaning to for ages, not least because various mates recommend him highly. We were all really impressed: good concepts, and the delivery, scripting and direction were all top-notch. On the whole, it was a really enjoyable evening. We must do it again some time soon.
