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, FLĀ 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!”

The YouTube Time Warp

30 08 2008

After being sent a link to a video on YouTube by my Chromatically Challenged Father, which was the song “Toast” by Streetband from the 1970s, and then being guided through other songs by him, I essentially went through the YouTube Time Warp of songs. Starting with “Toast” in the early 70s, we progressed to the late 1970s with Jilted John, then went on to Plastic Bertrand with “Ca Plane Pour Moi” in 1978. Afterwards we jumped ahead to 2008 with the Ting Tings and “Shut Up and Let Me Go”. Finally, we got a taste of the 1980s with “Mickey” by Toni Basil. What a day!

In the evening, we watched Batman Forever (the one with Harvey Two-Face and the Riddler). That was good, especially as I hadn’t seen it before.
