Synaptic Impulse – my memory is soooo bad. Have I linked to this site before? It appeared in my referrers, as a link search from Google. Anyways, if I haven’t linked to it before, consider the balance redressed.

Monsters Inc.

Monsters Inc. was excellent. We caught a ‘making of’ documentary this morning, and Louise remembered that our local cinema was showing previews this weekend.

Last night I must’ve fallen asleep between 11:30 p.m. and midnight, yet when my alarm went off at 6:00 a.m. I was up like a shot. Strange… Does anyone else hear things in the middle of the night? Then spend about 15 minutes convincing yourself that, no, no-one is sneaking …
