Cool patch! Where did you find that?

I have a friend who is crazy mad about vampires. I bought her a copy of From Dusk Til Dawn for her birthday however many years ago. Neither of us knew anything more about it than vampires and George Clooney. We were not prepared for the ridiculously awesome and funny movie that ensued.

The Fall - The movie is sublime. I love how the little girl's imagination is so vividly expressed through the locations chosen. It is one of the most visually pleasing movies I've ever watched.

Midnight In Paris - I think I've mentioned this one before. And I think I was scolded for knowing so little of Woodey Allen's work. I regret to inform everyone I'm still working on that. I love the characters. They're all so... Bizarre.

The Grand Budapest Hotel - I love Wes Anderson. This is my favourite of his work. Everything is framed spectacularly, everything is very symmetrical, and I enjoy the way the aspect ratios change throughout the different periods portrayed.

It's definitely a step up from the CB125s we were using for the MSF equivalent here.

I haven't ridden for longer than about 45mins in one go yet. The riding position is quite aggressive, so I'm not sure how I'll go with longer rides. Hoping to get out for a bit tomorrow if the weather is ok.

Being able to park right outside where I work is definitely one of the bigger benefits to riding!

About six months ago I was thinking about getting my motorcycle permit. After kleinbl00 and goobster gave me some excellent advice (and I saved a shit-load of money) I now have the permit and a bike! A gorgeous Suzuki SV650S. So thanks a bunch, guys!

Not having to catch public transport to work and being able to park right at the front door of the cafe is making me so happy. I can't believe I didn't do this sooner. I was hoping to go for a few nice rides this weekend, but the weather doesn't want me to go. Stupid Victorian spring...

Dude's got a killer voice. Thanks for posting this. I've got some listening for the weekend!

Carcassone is a really fun game. My friend owns a copy and we play all the time. I'm not very good at it...

I like The Great Museum Caper too. It's always fun pulling off a successful art heist.

I have a friend who has just recently gotten very into Backgammon. My grandfather tried to get me interested years and years ago to no avail. Actually a really fun game!

So does this stuff ever collide with itself? Cause any damage to satellites? That's a lot of debris out there. Having said that, I'm probably underestimating how much space there actually is for this stuff to fly around in.

Absolutely not going to smack you for it. It's a great album. And I agree that it's great the whole way through. I think it was actually the first album that I listened to from start to finish without stopping to do anything else except listen.

But then there was Hail to the Thief. For some reason, it just resonated with me. Whenever I put it on I get shivers. Every song stirs some emotion inside me. There There is also my favourite Radiohead song, so that gives the album bonus points.

But hey, that's just what I like.

How are you finding 1Q84? I really loved it. Particularly the first and second books. If you liked the first book, I think you're going to enjoy what's to come.

Thank you for such a comprehensive response. I really appreciate it!

Particularly points 4 and 5. Duly noted.

The money isn't an issue, really. I just wasn't expecting the cost to have risen so much so quickly. Right before I go on holiday. But I knew it wasn't going to be a cheap affair!

Good luck with the new job!
