Excellent afternoon.
Email from the producers of Troll Bridge with a link to the streaming web site for the film. Watched and enjoyed. Not sure if it was worth the 15 years wait. but, Hey! I appear in the 1st and 2nd wave sponsor roles. :D
My Good Omens DVD arrived and I am watching it as I type this.

Hi folks, long time no type. So Tim my son, and Caroline his wife, have now been married for over a year, and celebrated by going to the Theatre in Southampton, and then to Harry Potter in London yesterday.
Tim had the good idea of having a dozen red roses delivered to Carolines school last wednesday, he is winning on the good Hubby stakes. :D
Martyn and I are as daft as ever, and went to see Malificent on Tuesday, glad to see the usual crew are still manning the good ship Emporium Forum, hugs to you all. :D

So we had possibly 1,000 trick or treaters last night. I had 6 bags of 150-200 pieces each, one to a customer, and ran out at 8:07pm. I'm just glad we made it to 8pm because if you don't that's just lame; after that, most kids go home so luckily we only had to turn away a few people (turned off lights but they came anyway :roll: ). I had more candy than usual and still ran out!

I watched it and enjoyed it, agree about not sure if it was worth the wait though.
Hopefully the physical package will help in that respect.

I also got my good Omens DVD and have briefly flicked through the extras, hopefully have time to peruse properly over the weekend

And as I forgot to tell you last time, looks like there may be a very late trick or treater in about 4 weeks time, as it looks highly likely that I'm coming back to Arizona for a return visit. Most probably for Thanksgiving week and the week afterwards, staying in Chandler again if it does go ahead.

I peeps, not been around for ages. Just thought I would pop along and say Hi etc.

HI :)

Am I glad its not just me....

I've watched it twice this morning and I'm still not sure. Did quite like the song at the end, but would have preferred maybe a few segments of filmed action to accompany it.

Finally got to watch it , short but sweet could have done with it being a bit longer.
Maybe the next one.

Hey all, looks like I'm another one coming out of the woodwork. *waves*

Stamps have been on the backburner as this year's been busy (I even missed out on the 15th birthday minisheet and don't know if I have an LBE from my season ticket- I only sat down to open the backlog of 3 LBE orders today. :cry: )

But I did plan and take 28 students to the US and back with only minor drama*, survive 3/4 of another school year (although I start exam marking this week including marking the big official one this year in my 'free time', a sick cat (three weeks with a large wound on his leg and cone of shame although he's fine now) and sorting out my Mum's craft stuff since she passed away last year.

How's everyone doing!

*One lost passport (again), two sick staff including myself who caught the bug of staff member 1, some sick kids, hotel/restaurants that don't know what vegan means and just the usual drama when you deal with teenagers, although not too much, they were pretty good. I would tell them to meet back at a location at time X AND THEY DID! Anyone who has travelled in a large group of any age knows that this is amazing and NEVER happens.
