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 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. nadriel and 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 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.
