I went for a short walk with [personal profile] thelovelystick yesterday, where we both tried out our new walking poles. (They're the same poles, after [personal profile] thelovelystick showed the downside to one click ordering on the iPad when I was showing her the new poles I'd bought, and the cancel order button refused to work)

They certainly seem effective for distributing the work more evenly through your body, and hopefully they'll be helpful in the event of another descent down the Hay Bluff, when I had my feet slip out from under me twice, and ended up having to walk through Hay covered in mud.

I'm heading off to work shortly, as my boss phoned me at about 9 o clock last night, asking if I can come in today. Three days paid work instead of two? Of course I can. ;-) (Plus we're currently using the Bazillian Blend coffee instead of the Formula Six, and I've found I like it even more than the Formula Six which I didn't think was possible. So free coffee!)

I'm trying to get back into the habit of posting at least one iPhone photo a day to again, which then auto posts out to Tumblr, Flickr, Facebook etc, but I can't work out a way of automating the posting to DW. (If I was still on LJ, not a problem, but I'm not so I can't) And it's really frustrating because I feel like there should be a way to do it, I just don't have the technical know how to do it.

In other things that are frustrating, Posterous and Tumblr not having decent iPad apps. Particularly Tumblr. I've just fallen back into Tumblr after a long time away, and after a day of being back on it, my queue is already back up to Wednesday next week. Only I can't find an app on the iPad that lets me queue posts, and since my Mac Book Pro finally died, my iPad is my primary internet tool, and it's been nice not having to fight Doug for the iMac.

(And I would sell my soul for a decent Dreamwidth iPad app)

I'm not going to be abe to watch it until Doug gets home at around 9pm, so no spoilers as to whether the wicked witch from Norwich manages to curse the villagers with her incompetence, or whether they win free to prosperity and fortune.

I have finally seen Inception.

I have to say I enjoyed it. I was a bit worried as my fannish circles seem to have been pretty divided on it, but I did like it. I have issues with a few things, and there were a couple of moments when I wasn't paying attention because I was looking at the film making, (fandom, I blame this newly acquired habit on you) but I did really enjoy it. spoilery, although it won't make any sense unless you've seen the film )

I can see why Arthur/Eames is so popular as well. Before I'd seen it, I'd read a few complaints from non-shippers that they barely had any interaction, so I'd gone in with low expectations, but what interaction they did have was the type parts of fandom would eat up with a spoon. I have a feeling that that might sound disparaging, it's not meant to. I can actually see the attraction of the pairing, I just have more interest in moar spoilery stuff ) Fortunately, I have been led to believe, that Inception might have, just might have exploded as a fandom in terms of output, so with any luck, these stories have been written several times over.

I watch Inception at Flix in the Stix, which is a monthly film shown on a portable screen in the town hall. (I watched Made in Dagenham there, because it's only chance I get at the moment to watch films on the big screen)

I'm coming to be very fond of Flix in the Stix, the Town hall is set up with rows of chairs in the back half of the hall, and tables and chairs in the front half, wine is sold, along with tea, coffee, toffee popcorn and other sweets. And it's all rather cosy, only there's a much bigger screen than you get at home.

Flix in the Stix


Quite often, I've stayed on a bit to give Wendy and the others a hand putting away tables and chairs*, but tonight I stayed on a bit longer and helped take down the screen, which having had a very generous glass of red wine, I started musing on the nature of the film we'd just watched (creating and destroying realities) and the fact we were taking a apart the reality created on the screen for a couple of hours. I think what reinforced it was the action of folding the frame of the screen, very much echoed the fold Paris scene. Very headbendy.

*I don't know why helping to take down the cinema I've just watched a film at makes me enjoy it more, but it does.

Ask me to take pictures of any aspect of my life (within reason) that you're interested in/curious about -- it can be anything from my favorite shirt to my cell phone. Leave your requests as a comment to this entry, I'll snap the pictures and post them.

Multiple requests are fine. (And feel free to ask for outside locations as well)
