I’m off to the Peak District

Yep, I leave in about half an hour and I won’t be back until Tuesday. I might well be unable to walk by then though; it depends how tough this route is. Hopefully it shouldn’t be too bad since everyone decided they wanted an ‘exploration’ instead of an ‘expedition’, which basically means less walking and […]

In a hole

Just finished watching ‘The Hole’ that my sister taped. It’s a surprisingly good horror film actually – every twist in it caught me out, so it wasn’t at all predictable for me. There was psychological eeriness – which I always find is much more scary than flat out gore – and an interesting approach to […]

I’ve got a golden ticket!

I’ve just found out reading on the new official Oingo Boingo website that Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is set to be re-made by non other than legend Tim Burton!

Room 101

Last night was good fun. I met Simon at Rainham station and we joined up with Jenni, Dave, Lianne and Chris on the train, and later Rob and Wai-sun in London. We had dinner at Zipangu first – all crowded into the small cavern area on the lower floor – which was great food and […]

GAP interview

I had my GAP interview in Reading today. They phoned me up at short notice to say they had a vacancy and since I’d spoken to them about not being able to attend one over the next few weeks, I got offered the chance, so it was kinda lucky in that respect. I found the […]
