Post-Getaway Blues

I came back from Nod’s this morning – got back at around 12:30 after leaving at 10:00 so made pretty good time. I wasn’t at all in a work frame of mind, but I had to get on with it. On the plus-side, I had leftover Starbursts.

Nod had coursework to be getting on with so I spent much of yesterday watching TV show pilots and catching up with missed Smallvilles. A couple of the pilots weren’t really my thing, but Line of Fire looked like it could be good. I’m into cop shows! Speaking of which, there’s a second CSI spin-off series on the way – this time set in New York. Anyway, we went to a Wetherspoons for tea then watched 15 Minutes, followed by Changing Lanes, both of which I enjoyed. I took my most recent rental DVDs with me; one was The Emperor’s New Groove, the other was Solaris. Thing is, I thought it was Solaris. Turned out it was Solaris. So we didn’t watch that. I might do at some point this week, though. I’ve never watched a Russian language film that I can recall, so it should be interesting.

Many thanks to Nod for putting up with me and providing food etc. especially after I gave him less than 24hrs notice I’d be going! Go post in his forum and give his new server a stress-test šŸ™‚

I’m not fishing for compliments or anything, but two people have recently asked me when I’ll post another story. Neither had spotted one I slipped in on Christmas Eve, so I thought I’d mention it just in case anyone else was interested. It’s just something else that came out too long. I’m not as happy with it as I was with the previous one, though. It’s called “With the Wind” and can be found here.
