Went to see 300 yesterday.

Not really into the blood and guts and gore but having just finished reading the Persians, felt it would be good to see.
Visually, I found it interesting. The battles and the storys behind them were one sided and therefore did not do the Persian Empire or the Spartans justice. But then what should one expect from a source of entertainment?
Since Hollywood's treatment of a small part of Scottish history in the infamous Braveheart, I have come to take historical fact in films as fiction inspired by history. I hope other do, too and use this film as an impetus to find out more about the Persians (Achaemenid Empire) and the Spartans.

Saturdays!!!! A good Saturday when we actually get up and go out. Perhaps off to Capitol (awarded the best mall in Europe - not sure by whom, good but not that good!) where we can have a Schlotzsky's breakfast - keeps us going all day!!!! Hit the shops, the cinema and do the messages - home to cook a nice meal and then curl up on the sofa for Digiturk's best offerings. (tonight is The Barber of Siberia, Standing Still, or Scoop) or football depending on who gets the zapper first!

Sunny Mornings

What with the antibiotic and pain killer induced sleepathons of last week and the sunny mornings (and the kind individual downstairs who thinks it is a good idea to rev the car for a good 5 minutes before setting off) I have been getting up bright eyed and bushy tailed at 5.30 every morning!
Not complaining mind! I feel great!!!

Catch up

No reason for the picture other than I like it...
It has been a while since I wrote last and things have gone somewhat like this:
Came back from holiday determined to maintain a chilled out disposition - failed drastically at that one.
Got hair dyed - looks OK now but for a while I looked like a wonky tiger!
Had toothache and now have bone ache where they took a bit of bone out so they could zap a nerve with a laser - can feel it but don't really care thanks to funky painkillers.
Bored out of my brain!!! - Need a challenge!

Aren't I a happy camper!? On a lighter note, I got some good news and hopefully will be able to move away from the bloody motorway to a much better place where I can be me!!! I can feel cartwheels coming on!!! Life might actually be heading in the right direction. More later when more is certain :)
