A trek for Trek…

Written by m0rg0th. 1 comment Posted in: Film, General, Humour, Tech

I had to chase 3 shops before I found a copy of Star Trek. JB Hi Fi incredibly were shut for Stocktake! I can’t believe that a Blue-Ray disc that I’m likely to pay top dollar for, couldn’t be obtained from JB Hi Fi on the day! Next was Big W, being close, and still […]

A new Trek…

After being awakened brutally by the Furbag at 05:30 and unable to return to sleep I was up bright and early. Looking forward to picking up the Star Trek Movie today sometime. Hopefully it’s in, and hopefully they don’t run out.

Any other Monday…

What started out as a fairly relaxed and unproductive day turned into one far more satisfying in the end. Not that it’s very exciting for others, but I finally got my last gutter (roof) cleaned and hopefully sealed that voodoo leak. I’ll have to wait until it rains before I know it’s fixed though. Other than […]

I never, never fail to be amazed at the strange twists of the Cosmos. As usual, just when I think I have a firm grip on reality, the Cosmos demonstrates immediately to me that it’s all precarious and can flip on the draw of a rune so to speak… I thought I had a comfortable […]

It seems in the next few days I pass two anniversaries. A year ago today I broke up with my last partner. In four more days I have been working for my current employer for one year. I’m not really sure what either of these anniversaries really mean, but it’s interesting that I noticed them […]

Resistance is futile…

As if I don’t have enough Boardgames to catch up on: Fantasy Flight Games have released yet another addition to the Descent series, as well as another expansion! Soon I fear Quest Compendium and Sea of Blood will be joining my collection. *sigh* Fortunately (for my wallet) nothing else seems to be looming in the […]

Well for a fortnight where I was going to financially behave myself, I certainly fell in a heap this weekend. First there were some additions to the “toy drawer” for Friday night’s little escape, then today there was another little crumble when I came home with two external drives (USB), one terabyte drive for a […]

There is no doubt I’m doomed and going to hell now if I wasn’t before: I’ve fucked a Project Manager with full knowledge of her occupation…

Finally managed to pick up a set of stools for the Kitchen. I’ve been chasing some for a while, and had decided to just “give up” and let the Cosmos provide. As usual the Cosmos did so, and at an exceptional price (4 for $100). Don’t think I could have got much better if I’d […]

It’s been a good week since I got back to BAU ata work, Transition now behind me! It could be quite intersting politically at work soon, but that might get documented in a later post. So a good week has been had, and to top it off, I managed to pickup Star Trek the Original […]

Memory loss or Blindness…

I just found a $20 note I left beside the iMac at least 7 weeks ago. I’m sure the Furbag must have pushed it out of sight on me!

I just discovered Sim Earth on the Virtual Console for the Wii. Memories…

Slipped out to catch Surrogates on Thursday, and was pleasantly surprised. I’d not call it a “Blockbuster” by anyone’s standards, but it was a thoughtful experience. Elements of I Robot (the film not book), the Matrix Trilogy, as well as The Island and Gattaca. A range of others also: the ideas portrayed are not exactly […]
