Life in summary


Hah! That's funny.


Would you believe I'm having to present a poster at an international conference in Melbourne in about 2 weeks? So, yeah, I've been making a poster. Many hours using a crashy, buggy program. Bah.

Pirates of the Caribean


Saw it with Liz last night. We had a fantastic time! It's a great film, and you should all see it. See it! See it now!

Orlando Bloom is one of those pretty boys who is much prettier when he doesn't open his mouth. Sigh.

I have also joined the horde of salivating fan-folk who now want to either run or play in a pirate game. I'd run one at a con, but I think that every body would be doing that now...

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

I bring this up because Liz and I are very keen to go see it when it comes out - and other folks (like you) an come see it with us! More details to follow.

Real Estate Agents

Bah to them, I say. I have a house instection today, and I hope we don't get in trouble. Especially considering that in the spave of about 5 weeks the garden has mysteriously died...

Please run a pirate freeform at Arcanacon - it would be lots of fun - and your so good at it!

On another note I have offered to help organise next years arcanacon.

In real life Im a a project manager with marketing expereince so I might have something useful to offer.

Orlando Bloom?

Oh I want him right here right now - with dreadlocks and as a pirate!

three things
(1) You're right, Orlando Bloom is so pretty when he doesn't speak.

(2) Johnny Depp is just yummy, whether he speaks or not... mmmm...

(3) League of Extraordinary Gentlemen looks like it will be fun.

If you haven't read the LOEG comic books already then you should do so. Vol2 #6 is out now.

I have not a single bad thing to say about Pirates of The Carribbean. (Except, perhaps, that Orlando Bloom is less hot when he's not Legolas. Am beginning to suspect that I may simply be a sucker for anything with pointy ears and a bow.).
It really, really rocked. Can't wait to dash off and see it again. Johnny Depp. Not usually given to raving about Johnny Depp, but give him dreads, cover him with jewellery, stick him in period costume and make him reference the Fast Show, and apparently, all my buttons are pushed.
*Such* a good, well-written, old-fashioned swashbuckling adventure story. great fight scenes, too. Oh, and the zombies rocked, an' all.

I'm boycotting League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, on the grounds that a)Alan Moore wrote the comic (and I hated it), and
b) They got Dorian Grey so profoundly wrong that I'd be likely to start slashing at the screen with a hunting knife to kill him.
