Getting Ready To Go!

7 11 2008

We’re in the V-Room, the airport lounge for Virgin, as I type this. There’s a big window, binoculars to see through, unlimited (and free) food and drink, and the best part? We get to stay here until the gate opens for our flight! The filght is due to leave at 11:15, and the departure board says that it is On Time! I’m all set with my camera to take some photos of the plane and related stuffage.

Not much else to say now, other than “See you for another blog post tonight after a 9-hour flight to Orlando, FL and a short drive from the airport to the villa! Next time you read Mr Cheese’s, it will have come from Across The Pond!”

La Premièr Cadeau

17 10 2008

What’s this, you say? The first present? But it’s my birthday tomorrow! It’s true; I received my received by first birthday present early today, along with £65 early birthday money as well! What was the present? It was Spore Creatures for Nintendo DS. I haven’t had a chance to play it yet, but it looks good!

So, what will I get tomorrow, on my actual birthday? Who knows (except the people who bought the presents and then proceeded to wrap them up)?





Clunk, Clunk

The mini 8.9″ laptop is back! I built a toy train track today, out of Brio, the wooden track. I made it fill the living room, getting in everybody’s way. I made it just to show Harry how it supposed to be done, but he didn’t come round, so I had rto put it away before he even saw it. Some statement that was.

Lego Star Wars: The Compete Saga has been on the PS3 for most of the weekend, not me playing, but sometimes I helped with some parts of it. One of the few times it wasn’t on was this afternoon, when we watched the Italian Grand Prix.





More iTunes Ranting

11 09 2008

Well, after waiting for three hours for the music to download onto the memory stick (including having to start again because I accidentally press Undo), I plugged it into Harry’s computer, opened it and got the message “The file could not be opened. It may be damaged or corrupted.” Hah! Three hours! For nothing! So I got down to business and transferred the songs over the internet connection straight into his Shared Documents, which I didn’t want to do because I knew it would be slower. After waiting for that, I showed him how to use iTunes 8 and now he’s in bed listening to Smoke On The Water by Deep Purple.
