I got kidnapped today.
I was fully intending on going into work but got bombarded with offers from friends to do various things. Many thanks to Mr and mrsdominic
for inviting me out to see the new Narnia film. I hope it was as fab as
many people have said it is and I'm sorry I couldn't make it. At the
time I was still on track to work and in any case I'm hoping to see the
film next week with someone whom I'd previously spoken about it to.
Also thanks to Mr Dominic for the very long late night phonecall last
night. It certainly did me some good :)
ended up appearing in my living room and kidnapped me away to The
Dignity for lunch and an afternoon of drinking/chatting with his
It was a really nice afternoon, thanks to all involved. I really
enjoyed and appreciated the company and conversations ranging from ....
well I think we pretty much covered everything (apart from sport which
I mercifully didn't inflict upon thsoe present :p).
Best threads from the afternoon were our plans for a new Barcoding
system for singletons, complete with dedicated website so people can
leave feedback and general comments. Basically everyone gets a unique
barcode tatoo which you can zap from a distance to get vital stats and
feedback from. Also the Zombie Ninja Flesh-Eating Black Squirrels of
Finchley was a fun endeavour.
Btw, the link to the the squirrel story is Russian Squirrel Pack "Kills Dog"

Also picked up my now newly re-chipped multi-religional DVD player on
the way home so can finally watch some of the non-Region 2 films I
brought just before it mysteriously decided to revert from a
multiregional to a Region 2-only player. Still have no idea why it did
that but hopefully it'll be fine from now on.
Thanks to everyone whose either commented, texted or phoned btw. You
shouldn't need to ride the storms of the good ship Angus. If you did
I'd just make you seasick in the end. Appreciated, even though I have
no real rhyme or reason to be like this atm. Thanks.
