London, Cloverfield and Mars

Well, we arrived back from London a couple of days ago. The weather over there was great, back here, not so great.

Anyway, we all had a great time. Roz finally managed to see Mika in concert which she enjoyed and Elliot was exceptionally well behaved and enjoyed the sights of London such as the London Eye, The Tower of London, London Zoo etc.

Funnily enough we were London when the minor earthquake hit at 1:00 am on 27/02/08 (5.2 on the Richter Scale for 15 seconds). We were based in Hammersmith, which did feel the effects of the quake:

This is taken from the Evening Standard
'In Hammersmith, Kiran Sekhon, 29, said: "I woke up absolutely terrified. I was in a deep sleep and all of a sudden woke to find my bed shaking. It went on for a few seconds and then stopped."'

Thankfully we all slept through it, none of us disturbed by it at all, which is strange because I’m normally a very light sleeper.

It seems like something always has to happen in London whenever I visit!

Film watched:

Blair Witch meets Godzilla. Enjoyable, slightly daft, fun.


Veronica Mars

It’s official, I’m hooked.

I have now watched all of the first series and have just moved onto the second series. It is the type of program which is hard to watch in small bits, there is always the temptation to watch just one more.

It’s a shame that it is now cancelled, but at least the star of the show, Kristen Bell is now in series 2 of Heroes, and in truth she is the main draw of Veronica Mars, that and the tightly written mysteries.
