Slow work day…...

Less than a one in three chance of going to hell can't be THAT bad?

Your Deadly Sins

Wrath: 60%

Envy: 40%

Lust: 40%

Sloth: 40%

Greed: 20%

Gluttony: 0%

Pride: 0%

Chance You'll Go to Hell: 29%

You will die in prison, in a puddle of your own blood.

That'll do me!

Anything under 30 has to be good! :)

You Are 28 Years Old


Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view – and you look at the world with awe.

13–19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20–29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come… love, work, and new experiences.

30–39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

Only in…...

Can't remember where these came from, but there was a whole list of 'Only in such and such a country' and I saved these as the highlights.

Only in Australia:

Only in America:

Writing about an entry you don't have permission to view

That pension I'm paying into is looking like a waste of time…... or I should buy a dog?

You Will Die at Age 58


Not bad, considering your super wild lifestyle

This looks like a good waste of time…...

Writing about The film quiz! from From tractors to reactors

OK.. getting bored with marking assessments (you students think doing exams is bad!) so thought I'd do one of these "slightly more interesting than watching paint dry" things…....

Last film I saw at the cinema

'Turetski Gambit'.. in a cinema in Russia… unfortunately all in Russian, but if you get a chance to see the English version (Turkish Gambit) it's a good action film with some nice special effects. Don't know if it would be subtitled or dubbed.

Last film I watched on DVD/on computer/TV etc

'Friday 13th Part Zillion' they had two of the later ones back to back on late night TV… was supposedly marking but at that stage I was flagging a little. Only watched them cos there was nothing else on really… aren't they supposed to be scary?

Films I'm looking forward to seeing

Seem to be repeating others but the last Star Wars would have to be the only one really… nothing else vaguely exciting otherwise, although there is that new one with Nicole Kidman in.. no idea what it's about but who cares! :)

Total number of films I own

No idea… more than I have time to watch.. and certainly a lot of shelf space. As well as new ones have been replacing all my favourite videos with DVDs… same thing happened when CDs came out, all the vinyls got replaced at great expense for no real reason!

Five films that mean something to me

1. 'Star Wars Episode IV' the first 'real' film I saw at the cinema, when it first came out (up until then it had been Bambi, Snow White and Oliver Twist). It's still got it after all these years….

2. 'Psycho', the original Hitchcock version of course not that awful remake (why do people keep remaking classics?). This was the film that set the standard for horror and still makes me jump. Whoda thought that a homocidal transvestite could be so scary?

3. 'Highlander', the first one of course. Just such a cool film made even cooler by the Queen soundtrack.

4. 'Cry Freedom'. Film about Steve Bico and South African apartheid.. very emotional and moving film. The only film I've seen at the cinema that where I've wanted to stand up and shout at the screen. If you haven't seen it then you should….

5. 'Dead Calm'. Nicole Kidman… nuff said.

Other mentionable films: Toy Story, Italian Job (the original version!), Event Horizon (most disturbing film EVER), A Fish Called Wanda, Pulp Fiction.

Passing the baton...

Can't be bothered! :)
