Tired Saturday List

20th Mar 2010 · · Link ·

On the way home the other day I needed petrol, and having the kids in the car they asked if they could watch me putting the petrol in.
Why not I thought, nobody actually taught me how to 'pump gas' so they would have a head start.

Only to find the tannoy system of the petrol station spring into life with a warning to me to remove my children from the forecourt.
I looked around for the sign I had missed not allowing children, couldn't find one and so had to stop pumping gas, put the kids in the car, then return to pumping gas, then stop, then get kids out the car and walk across the forbidden forecourt into the Shop. Where upon myself and my children re-arranged all the sweets on the display, the kids not on purpose (well Corban a bit on purpose maybe), me with a vengeance to 'get back at the man'.
Flakes were mashed, Maltesers were no longer round, Yorkies were pre-broken. Starbursts squished you get the idea.

That'll teach the fu&*er to do something he probably had to do anyway.

Excuse the lateness of this weeks post but Thursday I was visited by the Migraine fairy, and those that know me will understand that I can't really do much when I have one.
Problem this time is my eye sight is still blurred 2 days later and my head is still banging like you wouldn't believe (not to mention pins and needles in my arms for 24 hours). Hope it goes soon, even typing this hurts my head.

I really can't wait and will adorn painful 3D specs to watch this.
TRON Legacy

Finally we can put the mediocre movies behind us:

(Sorry about quality, best I could get as US versions won't play worldwide).

All I can think is what it has in it's mouth, a chip?

Frozen In Time

The Tin Woodman
Much more gruesome than the Wizard of Oz Movie depicts. To quote Wikipedia "In the books, the origins of the character are rather gruesome. Originally an ordinary man by the name of Nick Chopper (the name first appearing in The Marvelous Land of Oz), the Tin Woodman used to make his living chopping down trees in the forests of Oz, as his father had before him. The Wicked Witch of the East enchanted his axe to prevent him from marrying the girl that he loved. The enchanted axe chopped off his limbs, one by one. Each time he lost a limb, Nick Chopper replaced it with a prosthetic limb made of tin. Finally, nothing was left of him but tin. However, Ku-Klip, the tinsmith who helped him, neglected to replace his heart. Once Nick Chopper was made entirely of tin, he was no longer able to love the girl he had fallen for."

I love mazes, for some reason I've always had a fascination with them, and yet I've never actually walked around a proper big maze.

Hot Chip - I Feel Better

That'll devoid the audience, and yes it's weird, and quite a large amount of the US audience don't get it apparently.
