(no subject)

No Country For Old Men, which we saw Friday, didn't really do much for me. There were several elements I found odd - for a film about Tommy Lee Jones's character, he didn't seem to have much screentime, and some bits in the Moss/Chigurgh plot I found confusing and frankly the police seemed curiously passive about the entire thing - especially given the identity of the victim of the first on-screen killing. Glad I saw it, though. 6/10. Others in office rated it from 5/10 to 9/10.

busy weekend. I have decided to do more random things, and consequently went with shermarama to see Wigan play Quins RL at Twickenham on Saturday. The game was a little dull at first, but got more interesting in the second half as Wigan improved. Naturally, all this action was at the other end of the stadium from us, but eh. First League match I've ever been to see, first sporting event in maybe 5 years. aquarionical's party followed in the evening. Guitar Hero III was present, which I failed at.

on Sunday, having decided that my flat doesn't burn down nearly enough, i bought an immersion fryer and some potatoes and a potato peeler. resulting chips were not very good. need to play with timings and heat level and potato type to determine optimum chip-making conditions.
