It’s been about 2 weeks since I last posted on here. I guess a quick run-down of what’s been happening is in order.
Jess and I didn’t manage to sync our diaries to the point where we could go and see a film.
Out of the blue I got a phone call from Lindsey asking if I’d like to pop up to Liverpool to spend her parents money on a broadband router so as to set up her parents machines to share her cable modem, oh and to see her as well. So I toddled up on the Friday night, spent most of Saturday setting up wireless stuff and doing Windows Update on her Dad’s machine as well as trying for hours to recover from the installation of one of the security updates (KB891711) which nuked the machine before you could get to the point of removing the b’stard. (This update also caused massive problems for me on the librarian’s computer at work, but different symptoms.)
Saturday evening Lindsey and I saw Constantine.. not a bad film but reminded me of a meld of Dogma and Buffy with all the humour removed. Sunday started reasonably late before driving to Steve ???’s place for a roast dinner before driving home.
It was only then three days before I drove down to Cornwall to spend Easter with my parents. I also took the opportunity to mostly clear thier loft of my old computer equipment (which is now in my spare room until I can shunt it into the loft). I drove back on Tuesday through awful weather and awful traffic. Instead of the normal 4.5 hour journey it took 7 hours, amongst the very worst I’ve experienced on that route.
And so, I’m now back to work. Still, I have got Friday night to look forward to. Jess and I have managed to arrange to see Hostage at the Ozone Multiplex at last. It seems I’ve missed “A Life Aquatic” at the cinemas, oh well. Anyway, I’m not sure if you could class tomorrow night as a “date” as such but who knows what will happen, eh? I’m classing it as a night out with a woman friend, myself.
