X-rated


Went to see X-Men 3 earlier this week, which was suitably entertaining, if you ignored the random plot holes. Having been tipped off that there was a final scene after the credits, we endured the long and vaguely embarrassing wait as the rest of the audience filed out (all of about 10 of 'em, this was Redruth after all) only for the curtains to draw across as it was playing and for an abrupt application of the off switch. I'm assuming we got it all, but you never know. I mean, this is the second week it was playing, they must have noticed the existence of this scene, wouldn't kill them to hang onto the curtains for another 30 seconds, would it?

Other random stuff from work this week:
  • Discovered someone has labelled the filing cabinet - beautifully printed labels, unfortunately saying: Draw 1, Draw 2...
  • We have a photocopier that has recently had user codes installed on it. The people that come up to use it from the department downstairs have stuck a sticky label on the front with their pass code, because they can't remember it...(seems only reasonable to put everything through on their code, in that case...)

Did you notice the time dilation while they crossed the bridge? They started crossing in broad daylight, yet it was pitch dark by the time the got to the other side. Just how long IS that bridge???

yeah, and how people were abandoning their cars and running away in daylight, but in the last shot of the bridge at night all the cars have their headlights on LOL

I just found your blog, it was a great read! A while back i actually found a british labels company who printed me some sticky labels for a really low price. If you are at all interested then it may be worth taking a look at their website as they do all different types of label printing.
