Watched a film i'd never heard of tonight and loved it. Seven Psychopaths. From the guy who brought us another genius film, In Brugges. Just wonderful.

MM - glad you've got standards lass.

simon, well done on a good time for a tough course. A day of rest tmrw then?

Ian, hamstrings are ok, it's just the tendon on to the fibular head that is torn and it's super painful. Might get to do some super easy mountain biking on the flat tmrw, if it feels ok. Ok, sleep well everyone, or if you live in the Orkneys, good morning Kaz!

We saw 7 Psychopaths at the cinema, in a really quiet screen - it was great! Colin Farell is pretty underrated.

Iain - full disclosure on Gatsby:  I'm a hoplessly devoted 1920's wanna-be, and I think everything Bas Lerhman does is wonderful.  So my review of Gatsby is not without bias.

I really want to see this, glad you liked it. I love Baz, his films are always beautiful. I'm not allowed to watch Romeo + Juliet with anyone else, I recite too much of the dialogue and it's annoying 

I also want to see The Place Beyond The Pines and the new Star Trek. I feel a cinema trip coming on... The trouble is, Mr KS used to be the projection manager in our local multiplex so he has an aversion to the general public. Although he does have some cool stuff, like an In Bruges promotional t-shirt which says something like 'Someone went to Bruges and got me this f- - - ing shirt', where the censors are bullet holes.

Maybe this fundraising calendar idea has legs after all....we've got Simon in his wetsuit as Mr January followed by Emmy in nothing but a flag as Miss May. Topless TD for Mr July and Simon again for Mr August. That's 4 months down. 

The big questions is: Who gets to be Christmas?

Can I be June? it's my birthday month Not sure about my props though. Any ideas? 

I just watched one of my favourite all time films - The Last Unicorn. Has anyone else seen it? It's an animation from the early eighties, with Christopher Lee, Mia Farrow and Jef Bridges as voices. It's brilliant. 

Did 11 miles this morning in prep for my half marathon next weekend. A bird pooed on me! A big, warm, orange offering. It could have been worse. It could have landed on my face and not on my arm. Still, I had to stop and wipe my arm on a tree - if anyone saw me they'd have thought I was daft. Anyone else had that experience?

 A pair of cream cakes....!       Go on..  do it..!

Talking of films...  we're off to see the new Star Trek film tonight...  really enjoyed the first one, so hoping this one is equally good.

Teehee, DV, have you been watching Greggs: it's more than meats the pie? The best advert for Gregges ever... 

I've heard it's equally as good, hope you enjoy it!

12/05/2013 at 17:24

Mmmmmmmm Benedict Cumberbatch.....

Star trek was Great!

Go RR!!! 

Well done Dave and Susie, and ATM.

RS/ MM - Hope your feeling better soon!

TD - great news on the bike ride.

Loving the photos! 

I have had a very busy day in the garden, again. All pruning, weeding, dogs kennel moved(and that took some doing even without him in it!), paving all cleaned with powerwasher.....then I visited my mother.....glutten for punishment or what!!!

Bad news - BF phoned on his way home from Fort William, some silly phucker pulled out in front o him, he swerved and the whole side of the vehicle is smashed in(no doors open ofor nothing. This would be bad enough if it was my car, but its his sons especially adapted disability car. I have a feeliing moods will not be good tonight.

Kaz;  I'll leave my thoughts to Clay Davis:


12/05/2013 at 19:16

Oh Kaz honey. That sucks! It'll be cold comfort at the moment because it will be a nuisance no matter what, but is it fully insured?

12/05/2013 at 19:24

Ya MM, fully insured through disability company thing?  Its just going to make life very hard for BF transporting his son. Hes 19 and quadraplegic, with an active social life as well as lots of other appointments for his health. My car doesnt even transport his folding wheelchair. 

12/05/2013 at 20:58

That's a real bummer Kaz, but at least he is OK. And thank-fully he wasn't on a motor bike.

My sea swim has been postponed due to lack of sea. Got my tides wrong. But I have a date with 'high tide' on Thursday evening.

12/05/2013 at 21:19

Just watch out for the turtles. Frightened or otherwise. 

12/05/2013 at 21:22

Yip Simon it could of been a lot worse indeed. Thankfully its only a car, if somewhat inconvenient in the circumstances!

12/05/2013 at 21:34

MM - I'll be wearing anti-turtle cream.

12/05/2013 at 21:38

Kaz - Damn!!  good to hear everyone is okay.  How long will it take to get fixed?

12/05/2013 at 21:40

Itll be an insurance job, involving the mobility lot so who knows??  I expect a while. The work itself will take a while but the paperwork before will probably take longer!

12/05/2013 at 21:42

Kaz - good luck!!  Will the  insurance pay for a rental vehicle in the meantime?  I think it should, especially if it's a mobility special one.

12/05/2013 at 21:44

They should, I think, can't really do without one.

Kaz, bummer about the car..

Star Trek was excellent.  And the storyline is open for more films to follow...

13/05/2013 at 07:35

DV - of course it is! Looking forward to seeing it. 

Kaz - hope you and BF get that sorted quickly. 

A good Monday to all.
