    Ok, much mucking about with VirtualBox, Vagrant, and VMWare Fusion being dicks; but I'm now on the last leg of testing the forum updates.

    All of which means I haven't done the shopping yet

    So off to the shops I go

    Shopping done, including collecting my Mum's birthday present from M&S.

    And after that, I treated myself to cod & chips from the chippy for tea, which was very nice indeed

    It was a fresh batch of chips too

    This evening's repast was M&S battered haddock. It was very nice.

    This evening's epic was "Genevieve(1953)" with John Gregson, Dinah Sheridan, Kenneth Moore, and Kay Kendall.

    It didn't seem as funny as I remember but brightened up a lot in the 2nd half.

    Those cars must be worth a fortune now.

    Pity about the dent in the XK120 Allard K1 Roadster (whatever that is).

    IMCDb.org: 1948 Allard K1 Roadster in "Genevieve, 1953"

    The dent:

    Oh good.

    It's Occupational Health test time again.

    This time, for maximum inconvenience, it's in Carmarthen.

    The last time this came up the Director of Human Remains was in danger of getting himself Dexterated.

    It's been many years since I've seen that; I'll have to track it down

    This evening's double feature started with The Intent (2016), concerning a London gang (the modern kind made up of young black men, not the Krays kind) getting into armed robbery in a big way. It wasn't too bad, but the preposterous representation of the police's activities ruined it for me. Without giving too much away, I believe that if the police recover from somebody's home a vital piece of evidence that could carry fingerprints, DNA, and gunshot residue, they carefully seal it in an evidence bag for forensic analysis. They definitely don't walk into an interview room holding it in their bare hands, then hand it to the suspect so he can get his fingerprints all over it in the presence of his solicitor, before finally grabbing it again as they walk out, thereby mucking up even those prints; though as they've already destroyed any evidentiary value it might have, why not, eh?

    To follow, 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003), which is pretty silly with a number of plot holes. Lots of cars though, if that's your thing.

    Goodnight all

    You got 1 hour 30 minutes farther into that than I did then.

    I think it'll be "The Admirable Creighton" some time this evening.

    Morning.

    Grey.

    Warmer.

    Daylight.

    15.6 in the living room, 11 deg in the laundry room with a min of 4.6 (which I suspect wasn't overnight).

    Dry, though it looks a bit damp out there.

    An extra 2.5 hours in bed though I'm not sure it did me a lot of good.

    It's Saturday so naturally enough I woke at 05:25 in time to listen to some of the shipping forecast as is only right & proper.

    This week's lurgie appears to be starting with a sore throat of some sort.

    Fecking endless.

    That's buses for you.

    Afternoon denizens

    Very gloomy grey day out

    A little rain earlier, but it's gone now and it's fairly mild at around 8C according to whatever online service the phone consults to tell me what it's like outside.

    unfortunately they have done similar.

    "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

    Feeling a bit better now I've done sommat constructive.

    Since The Cat wasn't intelligent enough to use the hole I left in the shed, but some other miscreant was, and was taking the opportunity to piss over everything, said hole is now no more.

    So wherever said Cat is now sleeping, it ain't in my shed.

    Half heartedly cleaned up the 1930s/40s type cupboards in said shed, in the vain hope they might be saleable.

    It looks unlikely to me but who can tell these days.

    'Tis getting dark now, so it's almost time for tea.

    Tea/dinner was some more of that rather peculiar casserole thing I made during the Xmas break.

    It was ok in a mediocre sort of way.

    Tonight's first feature was "Sink the Bismarck(1960)" with Kenneth More and Dana Wynter et al.

    There were a lot of als in this one.

    Esmond Knight for one.

    Sink the Bismarck! (1960) - IMDb

    B&W & Cinemascope. A curious combination.

    It was rather gripping in its way and one couldn't help but feel sorry for all those poor bloody sailormen on both sides.

    The obviously Septic trailer for the above features some oiks singing about sinking said ship.

    Feck me, you really couldn't make it up.

    2nd feature is "Northwest Frontier(1959)" with Kenneth More illustrating exactly why it's a fecking bad idea to rile the natives.

    North West Frontier (1959) - IMDb

    Well that was good honest value.

    With a shedload of extras getting their 72 raisins.

    Which proves something or other but I'm not quite sure what.

    Set in 1905.

    During the Golden Age.

    Before the waste of blood & spoil that killed the Empire.

    Anyone else spot that the warehouse used in the shoot-out in Luther was the same warehouse where the girl was being held captive in Silent Witness?
