    Evening all :

    CBS gone.

    Cloudy.

    Grey.

    Sunless.

    Hour and a half of potching about in the garden done.

    Tea this evening was spag bol.

    The bol came out of the freezer and from the look of it, some of the mince had stuck when I fried it, which was rather unpleasant.

    Managed to eat one of the pears off my tree which had finally ripened.

    Like the curate's egg,it was "good in parts", the good parts being very nice.

    All rounded off with 1.05 pints of Good Glengettie Tea.

    Now to decide what amusements can be enjoyed on the television this evening.

    Which is "Bad Ass 2: Bad Asses (2014)" with Danny Trejo and Danny Glover.

    Bad Ass 2: Bad Asses (Video 2014) - IMDb

    Which was suitably amusing.

    The 2nd feature is "LA Confidential (1997)" with Kevin Spacey, Russel Crowe and Guy Pearce.

    It's H. G. Wells's 153rd birthday

    Just read a couple of his early short stories in honour of the occasion

    The usual Chinese for dinner and, as usual, very nice

    Reason for not being busy: "People aren't doing anything at the moment, {Indian takeaway a few doors up} isn't busy at the moment either" - which then turned into a lengthy disquisition about the state of the nation, with particular reference to the mood of the people and how they never seem to be happy now, the way they used to be when she had a restaurant in town, and other such matters, which continued without break until my food was ready

    Made a change, and I'm not saying she's wrong

    and so it was.

    a very ferocious example of the genre, i must say.

    made my eyelids sweat.

    and my eyes leak.
    <nothing to do with the earlier remembrance of absent friends, of course>

    rewatching black mirror now.

    Tonight's first big feature was The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013), being part two of the tetralogy, and just as good as the first

    And after that, another rewatch from a bit longer ago (as in, I last watched it longer ago, though it was also made longer ago): The Siege (1998) about a series of terrorist attacks on New York. Slightly ironic that they envisage these unprecedentedly awful attacks as involving suicide bombers and van bombs and so on on the ground, while the establishing shots of the city prominently include the Twin Towers of the WTC

    Goodnight all
