I Guess I Should Confess…

that I am starting to get old.

I say that because time seems to be flying past me at the moment. As Kas said at work today, the days drag by but any unit of time longer than that flies by.

Anyway, last weekend I went back to my marshalling ways to help out at the Kielder 100, the first time a 100 mile single lap mountain bike race has been organised in the UK. It really was a great event though I can really only comment about two small points in the course. From an organisational standpoint though, everything went off without a hitch and there weren’t any injuries. Us marshals were exceedingly well looked after with free drinks and plenty of food. I also came home with a rather nice Montane Featherlite Smock.

That was Saturday and then on Sunday I drove home in time to watch District 9 before discussing it with Dave and Iain over at Sonic’s Ring. It was a lot of fun and I’d like to do it again, next time actually bringing some coherent opinions with me.

In summary; District 9 was a very good film and a hell of a lot of fun. I wasn’t too keen on the flipping between documentary and drama and I also thought there were more interesting stories that could have been told with the premise, but overall it’s well worth a trip to the cinema.

Listened to the podcast all the way through – I thought you did well. Hard to listen to as the levels were all over the shop and you in particular got a bit artifact-y towards the end, but very enjoyable nonetheless.

And I just watched the trailer for Defendor. Man, that looks baaaaaaaad.
