Thor

Went to see the movie across the street this evening. Once we got to the cinema we found out that it's 3-D, and that we had to buy the glasses. So much for a cheap night out. Though with prices being what they are, I guess it wasn't that inexpensive to begin with.

The movie was OK. It wasn't great, but it wasn't bad either. More characterization than a lot of other action movies, but just about as much plot as most. I thought it was better in 3-D, but not necessary for the price we paid. Definitely holding on to these glasses for next time.

Brazil

Just watching this film for the first time (culturally stunted, I know). All I can say is, Brilliant!

Let the good times roll...

It's not the same without Ron Santo, but it's great to have Pat Hughes' voice back in our living room. Not sure about this Moreland character yet...

This morning I found search results for the above in the web browser I'd left running on the laptop last night. pitufina doesn't know anything about it, so I can only assume that Gotita was the one using the Internet last night. Judging from the amount of squeaking and squawking I heard in the middle of the night, she must have been really excited about it.

March Madness Explained

It's not easy getting my English coworkers interested in March Madness. But I found an article that explains it in a way that they ought to be able to understand.

Go Fighting Illini! I predict this year they will sweep to victory in one of the most amazing Cinderella stories ever, mopping the floor with Kansas in a 111-32 point victory along the way.

Finally

Finally, Be Sky and BT managed to get things sorted on my line and it's now clear. I didn't even have to order new phone service. Hopefully the DSL installation will proceed quickly now - I think my brain is withering from interwebs withdrawal.
