Yesterday, I slept in til well past noon and then just relaxed, catching up with TV and getting nothing else done because I was feeling kind of meh but I still headed down to London for [livejournal.com profile] ginasketch's bday drinks at the Bree Louise in Euston. There were no fast trains (which I found out about too late) so I only got there a bit after 7. [livejournal.com profile] nadriel and [livejournal.com profile] colonel_maxim were there, too, as well as a few other of G's friends who I hadn't met before. It was a good evening with lots of chats about silly and excellent films (what was the spy film DT recommended?), gaming, martial arts and other things as well as lots of cider (@omlongden and [livejournal.com profile] vyvyan would have been in heaven) as I wasn't in the mood for warm beer (great and well kept as they looked but I like my beer slightly under room temperature). I also had a steak and kidney


I had to leave just after 10 to be able to get home not too late. Unsurprisingly, the train was packed but I managed to get a seat and read more of Perdido Street Station. Stupidly, I decided to stay up for Dr. Terror's House of Horrors on BBC2 which was even delayed by half an hour so I was again in bed far too late. Bah, there's simply not enough weekend. :/
I also started watching Avatar which was quite boring and just an excercise in CGI and felt like a huge video game cutscene. ETA: Still the same impression after having seen the rest of it.

Your summary of Avatar is absolutely perfect!

I just watched the rest and am glad I didn't go and see it at the cinema.

I'm glad I went to see it at the cinema, as it was phenomenally pretty. Although it was a bit like watching a rave in Center Parcs.

It was not worthy of all the hype it generated in the slightest!

It was not a spy film, it was a British gangster film called Sexy Beast with Ray Winstone and Ben Kingsley.
