Sorry to hear it's so cold there. You should do what we did all those years ago. Convince all your women fol to make their hair ridiculously large with hairspray. Next thing you know the ozone layer will be good and thin and winter will be nice and toasty. All hail the retro 80's movement!    cheers cool cheers

I ought to just hunker down and write something, but I really haven't felt much like writing lately. I don't seem to get that spark of inspiration at the moment.

Unfortunately, I'm feeling the same way at the moment. After writing my story for the CD comp, I just don't seem to be able to come up with any good ideas. I keep comparing any new ideas to that and feel they come up short...  Cry

It had to happen, the snow finally dumped itself down on my neck of the woods. About 4 to 6 inches of the stuff in a couple of hours. I had to walk back from the pool hall, I had my bike but didn't want to take the chance of riding it. Still, even on foot I moved faster than the cars. Not so bad really, it was a pleasant enough walk considering it was a bit of a blizzard at the time.

I wonder how long it will take before TV companies feel they don't need to add "and in HD" to their adverts?

That will stop about the time they start saying, 'Now in 3D!', ad nauseam.

Just put on my thermals and am about to head out to watch the big game. -7 and falling at the moment. I think I might take my gloves. Been sliding all over the road in the car today, no sign of any gritters. I shall walk carefully and endeavour to stay upright, Rev,...

Learn from my mistake, Del.  I thought Wayne Goodchild was beyond the petty reach of the weather, but he wasn't.  Now my leg feels like it's been on a rack and I'm really sleepy.  Don't underestimate the ice, Del!  It's sneaky stuff.

We watched a pretty good movie on DVD called The Hole, starring Thora Birch and Keira Knightly. Billed as a psychological thriller, it's about what a group of kids get up to on a break from their posh school. Even though it's a movie, I think it contains a pretty good example of an unreliable narrator.

Interestingly, it was filmed largely in and around Downside School, less than 50 miles from where our current Collective Story takes place.

I spent all morning laying an oak floor in my hallway, then we had Christmas drinks at a friend's house, mingled a bit. Came back here after a few pints of the falling down water and found my carpentry skills had somewhat diminished when I tried to restart my labours. Gradually got the hang of it again, and finished-up for the day about an hour ago. I think it's going to take me a few more evenings to get it done. Could have done without the drinks, really, but had to make the effort to get into the Christmas spirit a bit -- I've been too busy to get into it so far. Got invited out on a few shoots while I was there, so that's something to look forward to as well.

Can't wait to finish work and have a break -- I feel like I really need it.

Ooooh Pharo, and here I was thinking you had good taste  grin I hate that film!  Bleurgh!  I distinctly recall that 'The Hole' is an apt title as it's the cinematic equivalent of a black hole.  A gaping filmic pit of despair!  and so forth haha

Mind you, I've recently begrudgingly realised that I quite like some Tori Amos stuff, and I used to utterly despise her, so maybe this film is worth revisiting.  How's that for a wheedly u-turn? haha

Urgh -- I bought a Tori Amos album, on the strength of Professional Widow. I took it back. I couldn't bear to listen to any of it
