BBC Quiz

Of course being the BBC this must be a cut above Quizilla...

You are an Interpersonal ThinkerCollapse )

This morning got off to a very early start - meeting ones boss for breakfast at 7:30 is great - unless you start in Birmingham and are coming by train...

And then I had to educate him into the appropriateness of greasy spoons to vegetarians who don't eat beans, mushrooms or egg.

Still, it saved going out of Oxford again to the office - I'm squatting in someone else's - which is fine, and will give me a wider choice for lunch later - as long as I don't stray near HMV or Waterstones and encourage myself to further destitution.

Films

Currently watching the end of Hawk the Slayer on the laptop - Jack Palance is threatening to hang some nuns. Having reached the end it wasn't quite as I expected - I seem to recall the Elf surviving and the others biting the bullet - then riding off with his arm in a sling. Any ideas on where I might have picked that up from?

Went to see Underwired this evening with uberredfraggle - I was supposed to go into the office but didn't get further than one of our other offices in the centre of town thus saving £3.00 in bus fare.

Understated was an OK film - far too many goths with machine-guns really to let me concentrate on the finest features of the movie, but I chuckled enough. Silliness and sequel potential.

All in all I think the Oscar potential of Underwhelmed is in "Best Buttocks" or "Best Supporting Rubberwear" rather than "Best Actress" or any of those other mainstream awards.

Next up on the DVD, though probably tomorrow, will be "The One Game" which I discovered on Ian's shelf.
