    I have no idea why.

    Then again, I'm currently watching some Septic lady called Megan Fox investigating the supernatural powers of Stonehenge, Silbury Hill, and Avebury.

    Or not as the case may be.
    I like the Tremors films. Much silliness.

    I think I've only seen the first one, but I like it; I was thinking of rewatching it the other night

    But tonight's first rewatch here was The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015), which is all well and good for what it is, but it's something of a triumph of style over substance. Maybe the original 1960s TV series was the same; I know I liked it, but I was only about six or seven at the time and still liked Andy Pandy, so my critical faculties were clearly limited. Anyway, it's obviously set up for a sequel at the end and AFAIK the sequel never happened, so maybe the Hollywood moguls agree that it wasn't worth taking the concept any further

    My guess was only 142 below the MPAA number though, so that's something and nothing.

    And after that, Zero Dark Thirty (2012), one of those "based on" things where you suspect it's largely made up of whole cloth and just happens to map onto the same timescale as IRL. Then again, a lot of criticism directed against its veracity seemed to be along the lines of "the US Government wouldn't do such terrible things", which tends to imply that it's all very true and the US Government just doesn't like people knowing that. I assume they did, but not exactly as depicted, which gives them the space into which to squeeze their denials

    And finally S5E4 of The Sopranos, All Happy Families (TV Episode 2004).

    Goodnight all

    Dreadful night's "sleep", dozing since 05:25 and the Shipping Forecast.

    Vastly amused by continuity getting it wrong at 06:30ish by expecting the weather forecast rather than Farming Today.

    Mmm. The bottle of Louis Latour that we drank to celebrate my birthday has had a greater effect than anticipated... strange how sometimes that less is more, when it comes to the that?

    Don't mention the bluefin, which was the main meal comestible.

    Morning all

    It's dry but overcast, reasonably bright out. Weather app says it's 9 degrees and hazy with forecast high of 11. The sun may poke its nose out around lunch time. Low chance of rain. Barometer has dropped to 1017 mBar. The tado is reporting the following humidities: office - 52%, living room - 52%, bedroom - 48%.

    Congee for breakfast, as it was delivered along with last night's dim sum especially so I could have it today. Not sure it goes all that well with coffee.

    Smalls and shirts in the WM.
