Holidays are coming

Wahoo! It’s the easter break at last - four whole days off work. smiley icon: happy
I’m looking forward to getting up mid morning, after a proper 8hrs sleep and having nothing to do but go shopping. I might even treat myself to a new CD. Would you believe I’ve not bought a single album yet this year?! At least I don’t think I have anyway. I may have to take a look at ninjatune.com and see if there’s been any promising releases this year. smiley icon: smile I’m still hoping dad will end up buying The Incredibles soon, because I really want to watch it and you can guarantee that if I buy it dad will have bought it only an hour or two before.
Two other films due out soon are looking promising. One is Star Wars: Episode III - which surprises me, because I’m not a big star wars fan, and I’m certainly not a fan of the last two movies. I think Pinochio himself was less wooden than some of the acting in Episode I and II. The other movie is The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy. I never read the books, but the trailer has me thinking there’s potential for some excellent ‘brain out of gear’ entertainment.

It’s Matt’s birthday this weekend, and we’re all out for a Curry and night up Ashbourne, which should be great. I’m looking forward to it. If I remember to charge my camera’s batteries I might even have a photo or two to put up - they’re getting pretty rare on the blog, mostly because I’ve taken a dislike to lugging the camera around. By the way, if you ever want a quick way to get to the photo’s in the blog you can always go straight to http://mattwilcox.net/photoblog/ which will display the most recent blog photo. It’s a short-cut that isn’t in the website menu, but it saves you clicking ‘back’ on the main blog until you get to an old entry with some photo’s in it. If you want to read the entry the photo’s belong in just click the entry title and it’ll load up the main blog text.

Right, I’ve had enough of sitting in front of a computer. I’m going to read some more of my book and phone Mike. See you later!

    We’ve had a copy of The Incredibles in Bangor for a while now but it’s a bit of a dodgy copy and I don’t know how you play it. Some wierd thing were you have to burn a CD, stick it in the drive to play it from your hard drive while standing on your head wearing pink ear muffs or something.

    Dad did in fact end up buying The Incredibles, so I was kind of right. Turns out it’s a really good film! The story is good, the characters are great and the animation is flawless. Mostly. smiley icon: wink

    I think I know the sort you mean Mr Chris - though I tend to refer to them as ‘coasters’.

    Oh - and we have a new contender for Lois of Family Guy fame. If you catch my drift. smiley icon: laugh
