My weekend. Some good, some stupid and some expensive.
Saturday, clearly under the influence of 3 points, I bought a kitchen. Well laid down a big deposit anyhow. This has been months in the researching but we finally did the deed on Saturday. It's being made in Italy because despite there being a bazillion kitchen shops in America, they are all poop.
Saturday, still clearly under the influence, and not helped by a large bloody mary, I drop my mobile phone down the toilet, just after I'd sent a text (who said men can't multi-task?) and just as I flushed. The phone didn't flush, but will not be the same again and is now dead. If you know my mobile phone number and try to ring or text me, you won't hear me answer it, just bubbling noises.
Later Saturday. I saw the film The Departed
. It's an intoxicating movie and the parallel story of two Massachusetts State cops (Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon) was excellent, and may I suggest an Oscar contender. It's worth seeing for Jack Nicholson alone and Vera Farmiga
is very sexy.
Sunday lunchtime we played football and we didn't lose! It was a draw, which was better than the Bears, who choked at home to the Miami Dolphins
Oh and Sunday, there were no fireworks because Guy Fawkes
is about as British as you get, although blowing up parliament, with the dull, dull, dull midterm elections
coming Tuesday, is an idea that I am sure would catch on.
