Things I Did Yesterday 18/05/09

Waitin' for the washing machine man. But yesterday I:

- Got up and faffed about online while waiting for Alex to wake up.

- Decided our day-trip would be a walk out to the Leyton ASDA. Exciting! Quite a nice walk on the whole, taking just over an hour. A good mix of inner-city London, through rough estates and nice parks.

- Shopped at ASDA, which was something of an endurance test. Honestly, Sunday afternoon shopping is some kind of awful lesson in dog-eat-dog ruthlessness. People are just so ridiculously blinkered to the needs of anyone else for fear they might be disadvantaged in some way. Anyway, went to buy dinner stuff but grabbed some clothes and other assorted household goods. Well, it was a nice walk, anyway.

- Came home and chilled. Played Crackdown for a while, had some dinner, then I went to the bedroom and played around a bit with Spotify, as well as a new (to me) music player called Media Monkey.

- Watched Liam Neeson action flick Taken. It was a lot of fun, although the American xenophobia was a bit heavy handed: the French are spineless; Europe is murky and dangerous; don't trust Arabs or Eastern Europeans. Neeson is great though, really selling the role.

- Read for a bit then hit the sack.

    Cannot understand why you would ruin a good walk with a trip to ASDA, worst own brand food available in any of the Supermarkets, so says I. The bit about you taking yourself off to the bedroom to enjoy a bit of Spotify is the strangest euphemism I've heard yet, but then your marriage is still quite young. I thought Taken was a Hoot and Neeson is terrific in the role, shame the studio tried to bury it.
