Galloway vs. Coleman

Whatever you think of George Galloway it was certainly pleasing watching him lay into Senator Coleman and the accusations against him in the States.

Bringing a few things into hopefully a slightly more public American eye (if it got reported over there?) and being more bullish than most people who appear before a Senate Committee.

One day I really hope the truth of everything comes to light and, if needs be, Bush, Rumsfeld, Blair, etc, all end up at The Hague facing war crimes.

(Edit: Apparently Galloway's appearence has been reported fairly widely in the States although I'm not sure how high up the news list it was :p)

Quickening raindrops....

It never rains, it pours.

Time to make someone annoyed at me (sorry). Will probably be following this up with a friends only post so if you're one of my casual readers either friend me now and let me know or drop me a line and I'll forward you the post.

Days Ahead.....

Well I would have been heading up to see gabby2600 this weekend but things have conspired against me. Instead my weekend has completely changed from all of my original plans, and even my backup plans.

Strange days...

Tonight I have Dom, Nicole and Seth coming over for some boardgaming action (we may be trying out the new Shadows Over Camelot game as I picked that up from work today).

Tomorrow Sarah and myself are heading out for a meal as weirdly it turns out to be a year ago that we first met. Now whilst we actually had the best part of 3-4 months split up it's technically our 'first anniversary'. Although the whole things weird so god knows what anniversary is when anymore....

Friday I'm now seeing Revenge of the Sith at The Odeon Leicester Square with ukmonty and crew.

Saturday I probably have a wedding to attend. Louisa is also probably going to start moving some of her stuff over to the house on Saturday.

Sunday will now either be spent at work (which it should be) or hanging out with Sarah as it's the anniversary weekend (which is more likely).

Then it'll be Monday again. Atleast the following weekend is another bank holiday. Also seeing The Bravery next weekend so have a couple of highlights waiting me :p

1) Total number of books owned?
Oh COME ON!!! Now I know you've never been to my house but honestly HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW THAT ONE?!?!?
Anyone who has been to my place will know my problem with this question. I own a small library and the beast just keeps growing regardless of the amount I take down to charity shops or sell on ebay. At a guess? Ok, I'll guess..... 2000ish (and that's not including all the RPG books I own)

2)Last book I bought?
Death's Messenger - the first in the new series of novels based around the Warhammer Fantasy RPG.

3) Last book I read?
Currently reading 'Year of The Bastard' (Transmetropolitan Book 3) by Warren Ellis, and yes I do count Graphic Novels as books.

4) 5 Books that mean a lot to me?

His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman
Dune by Frank Herbert
Perdidio Street Station by China Mieville
