Saturday Went to craft show at Felbrigg Hall, where Becca bought some expensive hand-made paper and drooled over some pretty jewellery made from knitted copper wire. Bought some asparagus and fudge before setting off to Sherringham. In Sherringham, we wondered along the front, around the town a bit and then ate some Ronaldo’s ice cream. Amusing anecdote from the Ice cream shop: Woman walks in, asks if they have blueberry flavour, they say they have run out, so she walks out again. This is only amusing given the number of other flavours they do actually have…maybe you had to be there. We scoffed our ice cream, wondered back to the car and made our way back to Norwich.
Sunday Lazy morning followed by a fun couple of hours in Lloyds whether some of Becca’s colleagues from work. Lloyds was packed and about 5 deep at the bar, so we decided to make our way home, UP (yes, UP) the hideous hill from Kings St to Queens Road, calling in at Choices to pick up a couple of films.
Team America: World Police One of those films I’ve been wanting to see for quite some time that then turns out to be quite poo. I was expecting the film to be funny, which it was in places, but not roll on the floor funny. From watching the extras on the DVDs, I think they were trying to make a serious Bruckheimer style movie, but only with puppets. The comedy is supposed to come from the puppets, which it does, just not enough to make me want to watch it
Napoleon Dynamite Another film I’ve been wanting to see for a while. It's quite an amusing little tail of: 'A listless and alienated teenager decides to help his new friend win the class presidency in their small Midwestern town high school, while he must deal with his bizarre family life back home.' Very amusing. I am even more impressed having read the film was shot in 22 days and then edited using a Macintosh with Final Cut Pro. Crazy.
…Back to journal
Monday Got up to find a SMS from Phones4u offering me a free phone upgrade and £10 cashback. Needless to say, I was intruiged and we wondered into town through the pouring rain to find out what they had to offer. 9 signatures, 1 credit check and 30 minutes or so later, I walked out of Phones4u with a new phone, phone number and bluetooth headset. I am now the proud owner of a Sony Ericsson K750i mobile phone - Yay! However, it doesn't bloody work with iSync, which was one of the reasons I wanted a new phone, there's fixes to make it work with the version of iSync in Tiger, but not Panther :( so I may have to upgrade to Tiger sometime in the future. Went to visit parents and then sister in the afternoon (to drop off Avon stuff) and then <lj user="beccus"> made a fantastic dinner of Teryaki Pork with Sweet Potato chips and asparagus.
Tuesday Back to work…the morning seems to have gone stupidly quickly and the afternoon is hopefully heading the same way
