Went to see WALL·E last week. It's brilliant. The best thing I can say about is: that about 3 hours after seeing it, I suddenly remembered that it's supposed to be a kids film (I've been watching a lot of Ghost in the Shell recently, so animation does not equate with kids film in my head)
Went to a treetop adventure place over the weekend. Part of a chain called Go Ape. Seriously good fun. A couple of hours of Rope ladders, treetop bridges, zip lines, and Tarzan swings into cargo netting. It really deserves a better write up, but I don't have time right now.

Icon love! Seen here, based on these T-shirts.
I hate the cost of transatlantic shipping.
Science is like a good friend: sometimes it tells you things you don't want to hear.

Phrases that have caught my eye in the last 24 hours:

Describing an automatic carwash as a "Get Eaten by Cthulhu" attraction.

it’s funny because it’s offensive. Much like Chris Rock, or Michael Jackson’s face.

reminded of
a remark I saw on usenet a few years back. Someone had said something gormless and/or wrong, and had been called on it. They'd replied, defensively, "Well I'm entitled to my opinion" to which another poster had replied "No you're not - you're entitled to your *informed* opinion".

iBon sent me the following:
4 Moffat facts )

Anyway, that's enough Moff facts. None of them will probably lead to anything anyway. And none are as entertaining as the Vin Diesel Facts either.

If RTD is to go, it's as good an appointment as they could possibly have made.

Moffat, that is, not Vin Diesel.

"since aged fourteen everyone my age typed like they'd fallen face first onto a keyboard."

My old blog had a set of posts titled "Nice Turn of Phrase". I think I'll try and resurrect that. This one goes out to anyone who has to deal with children's writing.
