busy saturday lazy sunday
Jan. 23rd, 2005 @ 07:58 pm
First time I've managed to have a productive saturday for weeks, I managed to wake up at a reasonable time and tidied up my room so it no longer looks like a complete tip.
This was then followed by going down to south kensington to have lunch and show a friend (Kat) around the natural history museum/science museum which was rather enjoyablle but had to be cut short, as I had to meet my brother at 6 to go and see House of Flying Daggers at the UGC haymarket which was followed by dinner at Mr. Jerk (the original plan was Busabi but the queue was massssssive).
House of the Flying Daggers turned out to be an ok movie with some nice choreography but in my opinion it wasn't as good as some of the reviews had made out. It was the first time I've been to a cinema which has screen underground, which seemed rather unusual especially as the staircase made it look like we were entering into the bowels of the earth. I suppose it has the advantage that no-one can get a mobile signal, and thus no mobile related annoyances during the movie.
Mr Jerk was a reasonably good resturaunt although the staff seemed slightly incompetent, in that they bought us extra food we didn't order, but on the other hand they didn't charge us for it either, so I'm not going to complain :P
And at least unlike lunch (which was had at the Blue Reef @ Science museum) we didn't find ourselves suddenly surrounded by a horde of children that appeared from seemingly nowhere :-)
On the way back from Mr Jerk we got kinda lost in soho and ended up in one of the many indy coffee shops in the area and spent some time people-watching which was surprisingly entertaining. While trying to find our way back to a tube station we somewhow found ourselves in Borders on Charing Cross road, which turned out to have suprisingly good collection of current affair magazines, and also had a signed copy of Simon Singh's Big Bang on sale which I purchased. We did eventually find ourselves a tube station (TCR) even though it wasn't the one we were aiming for.
And that about sums up Saturday. Sunday was a do very little day, but I did go and find the local library , signup and borrow a load of pratchett books I haven't read, so at least I've got some reading material to keep me busy over the next few weeks.
Back to work tommorow though, the weekend just seems too short these days :P
Okay, my stupid msn messenger isnt working :-l so i cant annoy you.
Get the book 'Wild Swans' its about China, Chairman Mao, Communism. I loved it, it's so beautifully written.
Get yahoo so i can annoy you on there, :o)

Not just Wandering... its a small world
I was working on updating my boss' database of numbers and came across an interesting one for a guy named Richard Stallman. Not being a computer person, I was fairly fascinated with the internet tales of him that I pulled up (part of my job is research) and came across your 5/22/04 entry picture. (Okay, so I liked the tales enough to want to know what this guy looked like... shudder.) Anway, I too have an LJ, have wanted to see House of Flying Daggers but will have to wait for DVD, and love Terry Pratchett. So I was compelled to write you here. It's such a small world.
you seem like a pretty kool person, where u from?
this is unrelated.
It says to drop you a note in your livejournal if there is a bug in your 'popular interests meme'. It's not really much of a bug more as a cached copy won't erase. It said my most popular friend was myself. so i erased myself from my friends page, it still says that it is myself.
Hi there. Sorry to interrupt your journal with an unrelated message, but like it says in the post above, you said to drop you a note in your journal...
Will you be updating the Interests Rank meme any time soon? It's been several weeks now.
I thank you for it, and hope you've gone missing only because your life is way too exciting, cool, and incredibly busy to come by LJ. ;)
My interests Mem is not updating it has the same interests from 1-25-05 I have changed it a lot since then. Just curious if you know what the problem might be. Thanks for any ideas you might have. Tess
I was wondering if you could help me. It appears I broke my username (flagpolesitta) in your popular interests program. If you could look into this I would greatly appreciate it. A whole bunch.

¿Donde fuiste este mes pasado?
Where have you been this last week?
jusyt like 2 say i typed this:
livejournal user info tools
into google and you are the first entry that came up im tryin to think of other random things to put on my user info page u see
I was looking at your memes and so I found the link to your Lj and checked and I thought I'll go and friend you, since you have pretty interesting interests. ;)
I'm Krissi, 18 from Austria... And oh well, hope you'll add me back. :)
your friends intrests meme
hmm. I think it ought to say "my most interested friend is: ..." instead of "interesting." it makes more sense, in a logical way. it might be true that people with more interests are more interesting, but having more interests literally makes a person more interested. just a thought.
anyway of refreshing the meme's cashed copy for those who've been weeking a week or more now? please?
Off topic, I'm trying to reach memeland and it seems to be down. :'( Any suggestions for me? :-)
