The people in the house across the road have had, of late, a lot of builders in, and an awful lot of wood delivered. No one seems to know quite what they're up to.
My theory is that the house is a nest of evil pagans and that they're building a wicker man in order to celebrate their winter festival by burning a hapless Christian.
Merry Christmas all!

I read a review of Peter Jackson's King Kong that said it was "surprisingly heartbreaking". Now, the "heartbreaking" bit I get, but really, how "surprising" can it be? It's King Bloody Kong! It's not exactly an obscure film...

Wondering who that blue fellow was in my Avengers line up? It was (the) Beast, Dr Henry McCoy (also called "Hank", because everyone named Henry in a Marvel comic is called Hank 98% of the time, which was somewhat confusing for the young 'Splurge), and everyone will know him next year because of this:
Finally! An X-Men film where I have some interest in one of the characters!

Because Dave sort-of-demanded it (time to full-screen your browser for full-on AvengerScope!):
I did this once about a year ago too. As you can see, the roster has expanded, and Quasar's been retired for being naffer than I thought he was last year.

My wisdom teeth extraction was very easy, so much so that they didn't even need to stitch up the wounds afterwards. And I've suffered none of the usual after-effects, so I consider myself very lucky.
Except that about a week and a half after I had the surgery, a big yellow and red bruise appeared on my arm where they put the anaesthetic in, it hasn't gone away yet, and it hurts like a bugger, especially after I've been carrying all these boxes and bits and pieces around.
It's certainly not the after-effect I was imagining...
