Bank Holiday Weekend So Far

Weekend has had big yays! with some minor nahs! attached.

The nahs! pretty much revolve around me catching a damn cold. I've been sneezing (sometimes is a quite comical LOUD and EXPRESSIVE fashion) all weekend and it is annoying me. Even a few straight shots of Southern Comfort last night whils6t watching the end of Season 2 of Buffy didn't help me out much.

The Yays! included Grima dn Donna coming down for the weekend. Had good chats with Grim about a number of Cubicle 7 projects and also managed to play his Hentacle Card Game which was very good (and I beat him by over 100 points which was most gratifying :p).

We all stayed in on saturday night and had a double bill of Japnese cinema. The WE were Sasha, Dave, Sarah, Grim, Donna and myself and were later joined by Andy P and Clare once Andy had finished work. The double bill was the brilliant THE GRUDGE and the amusing HAPPINESS OF THE KATAKURIS which is a 'horror' musical by the same director (Takashi Miike) who did Audition and Ichi The Killer - which are another two of my favourite Japanese films. THE GRUDGE is being remade for the English-language market by the original director, starring Sarah Michelle Geller. It does look like its a pretty faithful remake too from the clips I've seen of it.

Anyway, must dash as I'm working this morning. We've learbned that Keyvan is having to stay in Iran until at least 21st September as his wife's Visa application isn't due to be heard until then. So with Andy gone and Keyvan out of action for almost another month, we're down to three full-timers here at work. Luckily Sister #3 is currently unemployed and is coming in to help us out. But still, its busy enough without having to train an additional body up to fill the shoes.
