Thoughts on Death

My family already know this but just so everyone is clear: this is what I want played at my funeral.
The Man with the Child in his Eyes - Kate Bush.
(hes here! hes here!
Hes here! hes here!)

I hear him, before I go to sleep
And focus on the day thats been.
I realise hes there,
When I turn the light off and turn over.

Nobody knows about my man.
They think hes lost on some horizon.
And suddenly I find myself
Listening to a man Ive never known before,

Telling me about the sea,
All his love, til eternity.

Ooh, hes here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.
Ooh, hes here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.

Hes very understanding,
And hes so aware of all my situations.
And when I stay up late,
Hes always waiting, but I feel him hesitate.

Oh, Im so worried about my love.
They say, no, no, it wont last forever.
And here I am again, my girl,
Wondering what on earth Im doing here.
Maybe he doesnt love me.
I just took a trip on my love for him.

Ooh, hes here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.
Ooh, hes here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.

Mind you, I have no plans to die just yet. Just want everyone to know.

Man of Steel

Went to see Superman Returns the other night. Nice opportunity to really cool down, thanks to the wonders of air-con.

The effects were as you might expect fab and breath taking. Story wise, it was good and fairly original but managing not to contradict the Reeve-era films too much. This really did feel like a continuation of a story rather than re-boot, which seems all too popular of late. All the leads were strong and had their moments to shine.

I have to say however I thought it a little too long and played heavily on the sentimental to the point of nearly being bull in a china shop.

Road Trip

Big interview Wednesday. Will be travelling later today and staying over. It's not that it's a million miles, just that the M25 can be more like a car park than a motorway at times.

I get the impression the company want to move quite fast now. So fingers crossed: I could have a job in a few days.

Entry for July 15, 2006

Have just downloaded the new Yahoo Messenger (Beta version). Interesting....

Appearently I can now chat with MSN Messenger folk from the comfort of Yahoo. We'll see.

If it does something horrible while I'm chatting, I'm sorry; it wasn't me.

Better late than never.

Farewell Billie. You will be missed.

My Italian friend P is over the moon for some reason: she text me last night from home in the mountains of Italy. No idea why...
Perhaps because French football captain Zidane has just been honoured at the World Cup. Probably for services to Italian football.
Well done Italy.

Entry for July 02, 2006

Well I think I have just about recovered from Saturday night; what a night! Is it fair to say the entire nation was gripped and on the edge of it's collective seat? Maybe.

I guess the vast majority had watched live but some like myself had other pressing commitments and so had to rely on the VCR in order to view later on. And it was absolute hell trying to avoid over-hearing the outcome, I can tell you.

Matters went right down to the last thrilling moment. All the old fears and woes resurfacing like a bad dream. False starts and casualties, just to ensure my finger nails didn't survive the night. As the final few moments played out, I just couldn't believe my eyes, I could hardly look: where on Earth had the Daleks come from?

Not enough that the Cybermen where back, bigger and meaner than ever but the old pepperpots as well? Thought they were gone for good. Russell T Davies and all the folks at BBC Wales had kept that little surprise pretty much under wraps. Nice one. I can't wait to see part 2 next Saturday.

I believe there was a football match on as well. How did we do?
