    Weird old people on my train. Must be their monthly day out.

    Also why must some women put make up on?

    She has got a tonne of make up on already. I think it is to hide acne. Unfortunately she looks worse...

    I'm quite sure that none of you are in the least innerested but it enlivened an otherwise tedious couple of hours.
    Sounds good to me, though I'd have to spend a while on Wikipedia to work out what it's all about

    More assorted crap, consisting mainly of crap, sorted out. Not a lot of shredding this time, but it's starting to look like I'm actually making a little progress

    Not being particularly hungry after the big fry-up this afternoon, I had a simple tea of a fish finger bap

    And in a vague nod to the notion of healthy eating, it was a brown multiseed bap, a packet of which I bought the other day. It was a good job I tried one, as I've found that they shed poppy seeds all over the place, so they're not really suitable for ClientCo as I'd probably jam up my keyboard or something

    This evening's epic was "Arabesque" (1966), Gregory Peck, Sophia Loren, Alan Badel.

    Arabesque (1966) - IMDb

    It was ok, trying to be "North by Northwest" and failing.

    <Gricer mode> It was nice to see the Crumlin Viaduct again in all its glory, shortly before it was demolished.</Gricer mode>

    Odd to see Crumlin so close to Berkshire that one might ride one's horse from one to the other in mere moments.

    <Even more for Gricer mode>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crumlin_Viaduct</Even more for Gricer mode>

    After a bit of the Ambulance thing on iPlayer while I ate my humble fish finger bap, the evening's entertainment proper was the recent(ish) remake of The Manchurian Candidate. It seemed a bit of a slow starter, but once it finally got moving it was pretty good, I thought

    I would compare it to the original, but I think it's nearly two years ago that I watched that, so the memory is a bit hazy

    And after that, a couple more episodes of The Americans. Though I should really get back to various other series that I've yet to finish, such as Generation Kill of which I have one episode left to watch, and Borgen where I'm (IIRC) one episode into the final series.

    Goodnight all
