Quick review

Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.Fantastic fight scenes, some funny moments, some touching moments and about 20 minutes too long (you’ll know which 20 minutes when you see it). Today: Man coming to tell me that I’ll need to spend a lot of money to get our central heating system fixed.Tonight: Work Christmas ‘do’. Ohh and congratulations to Sal, Freya (what a lovely name) looks fit and well from the pictures (and as I’m a bloke I can’t really comment on whether or not she looks like you or not.. sorry… dried prunes the lot of them…)

Return of the King

Return of the King It is a testament to both the Director, script writer and the special effects department that this film closed out the trilogy in such epic fashion. The fight scenes were immense in scale, detail and action, and the dual storylines were well edited to maintain the pace of the movie. I don’t really know what else to say… ohh apart from the last 30 mins. Ohhh the last 30 minutes. Well written and produced but ohhh so very long.

Meant to say

Apologies for it being a little slow around here, I may also be missing from your comments boxes for the next few days, because: (Side) Project X is finishing up – cue last minute rush (no link as it’s a secret.. sshhhhh) Heating is slowly giving up the ghost again, radiators getting colder in proportion to the weather, will need to phone an engineer soon (once I’ve been paid for the above work) Site hosts screwing my account (still to be properly sorted – see below) My full-time job (I really must get rid of it, it keeps getting in the way) Return of the King tomorrow night. Work Christmas ‘do’ on Thursday night (here again, was good last year) …

Up and down

Seems like the site is back (or you wouldn’t be reading this). Might disappear again but will be back once I sort out the ‘billing’ issue I’m having with my host – they sent a reminder I never received, and despite having two telephone numbers that I am contactable by didn’t think to phone either, instead they just yanked my site. Nice. Ohh and it turns out that they “don’t call customers” as a policy. Why do they have my phone number then?
