  1. Slightly knackered. My arms ache from scraping old wallpaper off the wall, why is it so hard to remove? Never mind, it's lunchtime so I'll go make myself some lunch and watch some anime.
  2. That's how a of people are. It certainly applies to me, I've often been asked what university I went to, if fact I left school at 17 and went out to work.
  3. I first saw Neon Genesis Evangelion when it was released on VHS tape and I thought it was the most amazing, original and ground breaking series that I'd seen. I was really impressed with the high quality of the artwork and animation, so when I got the final tape of the series with episodes 25 & 26 on it I was expecting a really high quality finale, what I got was a couple of what looked like animated storyboards. For a series that had had such high quality production values for the previous 24 episodes this was a terrific let down. When the series was re-released on DVD I bought that as well, but on re-watching the series my opinion of those last two episodes didn't change. For me NGE remains a great and impressive series that was ruined by a bodged ending. Over the years since NGE's release I've seen many theories proposed as to why those last two episodes were like they were. My own theory is that the story had become so complicated with so many conspiracies within conspiracies that the production team didn't know how to tie it all together and bring the story to a successful conclusion and they were up against a tight deadline to deliver the final episodes, I also suspect that they were running out of money and had no choice but to go with a quick and cheap final two episodes.
  4. Thank you. I get a lot of enjoyment and fun taking pictures so when people say they like my efforts it makes me very happy.
  5. Squirrel on the look out in my back garden.
  6. Very wise, you can get some nasty infections from wild animal bites. That's the best way to do it.
  7. Foxes are certainly cute. Until they dump all sorts of rubbish in my garden and I have to go round and pick up all the stuff.
  8. I've now finished watching After The Rain. My initial thoughts after the first few episodes was that this was a rather lack lustre high school Slice of Life series about a 17 year old 2nd year student with a crush on the 45 year old manager of the restaurant where she works. At first the story goes where you would expect it to go, but as the series goes on it becomes apparent that the, rather one sided, relationship is just a vehicle to progress the real story. Overall, this was a good series and I'm glad I stayed with it to the final episode.
  9. 95F, hmmm, that's 35C a bit too hot for my liking. Today it's 19C here, but also dull, overcast and wet . A good day to do indoor jobs.
  10. I think I may have posted this one before, I saw this fox on my lawn one afternoon.
  11. I often get squirrels in my garden and sometimes I see them bury things in my lawn. I also get foxes, I think it's them that leave all sorts of rubbish on my lawn overnight. Oh, yes, there's also a whole squadron of sparrows who swoop down and empty the bird seed feeders faster than I can refill them, it's quite good fun watching them fight for access to the feeders. I can almost hear them saying "you've been there long enough, get off it's my turn now". One day I'm going to buy one of those trail cameras to see who visits my garden at night.
  12. It's been a nice day today. Warm, dry and sunny. Rain is forecast for tomorrow though.
  13. Here's a bit more of my Photoshop fun.
  14. I have quite short hair, and to be honest, there's not much of it left on top. I comb my hair every morning, even when I'm not going out anywhere because I don't like the feel of bed hair.
  15. Attorney: Doctor, how many of your autopsies have you performed on dead people? Witness: All of them. The live ones put up too much of a fight.
  16. While I didn't have a lot of the stuff kids today have I still had lots of fun with my friends. Also the world was a bit safer back then, can you imagine parents today letting 5 year olds roam the local streets on their bikes and go to the park on their own?
