    It must be said that the Pink Panther epic is rather closer to reality than the version of Stalingrad depicted in Enemy at the Gates.

    Oddly enough, those who know a little about such things rate the film as poor to very poor, the ignorant seem to rate it at 10.

    And WTF the sex scene was doing in there is beyond me, FF got used to skip over it.

    Lunch was poached tomato and scrambled egg (leathery version) on Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed toast. rounded off with 1.05 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Nice enough.

    For no discernible reason a baked potato was produced as well, which was a bit surplus to requirements all in all.

    Now listening to the wind howling in the chimney while the jackdaws are tap dancing on the top of the flue again.

    I do find their conversations very inneresting & would love to know what they're on about.

    It's blowing a gale & pissing with rain & I've been watching the plastic roof of the lean-to bending in the gusts.

    You never finish anything off you stop gilding it long enough to get paid!

    Lunch has been zingy chicken and lentil soup with wholemeal bread; just right for a cold, wet, windy day

    Turns out the twat who directed "Enemy at the Gates" is the same twat who directed my other "favourite" film "The Name of the Rose".

    Tea was M&S chunky battered haddock.

    It was very nice.

    The orange segments and custard weren't up to previous standards since the orange was pretty manky.

    All followed by the standard 1.05 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    The evening's entertainment, post shower & dish washing (not necessarily in that order), is posited as "Trail of the Pink Panther", this being the one made of out-takes following the death of Peter Sellers.

    I don't hold out much hope for it.

    At 21:00 on Film4 there's a noir starring Glen Ford, Gloria Grahame and Lee Marvin (this last in Very Nasty mode IIRC*).


    *Yes IIRC.

    Tea is a portion of HWMBO's turkey curry that I remembered to get out of the freezer last night.

    Currently looking for ways to get rid of two old monitors and a DVD player/home cinema set up with minumum fuss or interaction with great unwashed. Yes, I probably should freecycle them.
