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
