I’m sitting here enjoying the perfect Saturday…
I’m listening to Jonathan Ross on Radio 2, with a beautiful cup of steaming hot black coffee (decaff from the Monmouth Coffee House) and watching my beautiful daughter sitting in her chair, smiling and laughing
I worked from home yesterday, so it almost feels like a long weekend, even though I did actually work.
The sun is out and it’s such a great temperature – OK, not so great at night, but I’ll always prefer to be warm than cold.
So what have I been up to this past week? Not a great deal of note, really. We watched a superb movie on DVD the other night – Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. It stars Robert Downey Jr and Val Kilmer and was extremely enjoyable. It plays with the whole fourth wall concept and doesn’t take itself too seriously. It also credits the audience with a bit of intelligence, which is sadly lacking in movies.
So what’s it about? Well, the basic plot is Robert Downey Jr is a thief, who becomes an actor, who then turns into a pseudo-private detective, teaming up with proper PI Val Kilmer. There’s also a woman involved (Michelle Monaghan) and a ridiculously convoluted plot, but it made me howl with laughter and is definitely worth renting…
I’ve also just heard the new track from The Dears – great stuff. I’m a big fan, although Ceri always complains , because it’s too depressing.
Anyway, I’d better get on with my great weekend!
