I've been in a strangely upbeat and happy mood so far today. I'm putting a large part of this down to it being so sunny and warm outside and also the fact that I'm managing to actually HAVE a day off. Now I had (in theory) Tuesday and Wednesday off this week because I worked on Saturday and Bank Holiday Monday, but alas I actually ended up working atleast a half day on both my 'days off' and thus requested today's leave to catch up with things at home and cash my extra hours in.

I woke up at 5.30am thinking it was about 9 and I'd missed my alarm. Realised I hadn't and then promptly feel asleep again, missed my alarm for real, and woke up at 9.30. Potted about at home, let the cleaner in, popped off to vote (glad to see we didn't have any BNP candidates standing in Finchley - I think we're way too integrated multiculturally up here for them to get a foothold - also glad to see that just one Green candidate was standing in my ward. That made allocating my three votes a lot easier :p).

I did however pop into Blockbusters and buy a few of their ex-rentals they had on sale. God knows when I'll actually get round to watching them but I've now added the following to my collection:

13 (A French film)
Broken Flowers (with Bill Murray)
The Brothers Grimm (It is supposed to be disappointing but it was cheap so worth the gamble)
Lord of War (with Nicolas Cage)
Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

I haven't seen any of them before so am looking forward to seeing them.

I also had Gnarls Barkley's "St. Elsewhere" and Ladytron's "Extendedplay" CDs fall through the letterbox this morning so I'm pretty entertainmented-up at present :)

Now to get on with some Cubicle 7 work and catch up on my emails...

I *liked* the Brothers Grimm. It is silly fun. Not a bad way to spend a couple of hours at all.

13, oOOooOOOoo I want to see that.

If it's the one based of the cominc / graphic novel. I played the cam and they seem to have hit on a good story and style that worked.
