Pages 2, 3 and 4 are started up.

We decided to go and see a movie this evening and oddly enough it was Alex Rider: Stormbreaker. It's a kiddie spy movie, not the kind of fare we usually see but it had two actors in it that made it tempting, Ewan McGregor and Bill Nighy. Ewan is barely in it, maybe five minutes in the beginning (but oh what a cute five minutes it is), Nighy on the other hand is the main reason to see this film. Every scene he's in is damn entertaining making the swiss cheesy plot, choppy editing and so-so acting going on everywhere else less noticeable. I guffawed whenever his pale, twitchy visage graced the screen ("You can- meet him- at the airport- tomorrow. Take- him- out- for some- ice- creeeeam.").

A scene involving a dead pigeon probably made me laugh the most however. And that's all I'll say about that.

Back at the office we did some more laughing to a couple of new comedy cds, one a series of sketches by Norm MacDonald (with guest Will Ferell on some hilarious tracks) the other a live stand up of Russel Peters. Good stuff.

In keeping with this week's comedy theme we're planning to see a show at UBC tonight. Riel is performing and I've been wanting to see her stand up for ages. I have to remember to call Vic about it(starts at 8pm if she's reading this today *g*).
