Well, been a fairly quiet few days since my last entry. We all went off to see "The Two Towers" last Wednesday, which is a great film. Then on Saturday evening I met up with Lloyd (and others from ICSF) in a pub, since he's making a brief return visit to the UK.

Aside from that, I've just finished re-reading "A Civil Campaign" - great book. I've also started playing Civ3 again (after a couple of false starts before). However, after 3 hours last night, my empire was completely obliterated, and it said "History will remember you as John the Worthless". So that was time well spent! Think I need to read more of the manual...

This morning, the universe apparently decided that I shouldn't be allowed to have a lie-in. I went to bed at about 2am last night, then I got woken up at 8:30 when the doorbell went (Amazon delivery). So, I took care of that, then went back to bed. I was just getting comfy when I heard my door creaking - looked over, and saw the cat wandering in. A minute later, felt a thump on the bed, as she landed :) I could have turfed her out, but that would have involved moving, so I just lay there for a while. Then at 10:00, the main post arrived, at which point I admitted defeat, and got up!
