This weekend, Philippa was away from Friday night until Saturday evening. So, on Friday evening I watched “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”, which I’ve been meaning to watch for ages but haven’t got around to it. It was a great film – I can see why it got about five oscars in one year! It was very sad at the end, but worth it. It also made me think how clever “Spaced” was – they managed to reference the original film quite accurately, while still managing to keep it part of the story! Oh, and I spotted a couple of references from Spaced which aren’t in the ‘restaurant’ episode. (Well, one reference at least).
Anyway. On Saturday I spent most of the day working on Gift List Central – it’s coming along quite well. Unfortunately I also managed to find a couple of other sites which do the same kind of thing – why couldn’t they have come up when I was searching BEFORE starting work on it? Doh! Still, one of them looks like it was started in 2008 so perhaps it’s not all bad. On the internet, competition is good – and they’ve given me a few ideas as well 😉
I also watched the latest episode of “The IT Crowd”. It was great – this series is shaping up to be as good as the first, after a rather disappointing second series.
On Sunday we went to church in the morning. In the afternoon we went to dinner with one of Phil’s work colleagues and her fiance – they are getting married in December and I am DJing at the wedding, so we discussed the music. It was good fun, and I think I’ve got a much better idea now of the kind of thing that they want.
