looking smart, Mrs R+1 !!!!!

this is us on Richard and Erika's wedding day.

see, I can dress properly when I want to, or at least when I have to!

ahem, as ever, Michele looks wonderful. if I am not mistaken, this is the first time her image has appeared on this page of mine!

time for an update

hello everyone

well, once again, sorry for the delays. it's been busy days for us, as my last post or two hinted at!

first off, most important - baby talk. Michele has been for some tests, owing to her existing medical conditions, and everything seems 100% fine with the pregnancy. nice one! we have a due date of 15th December 2005, but I understand and accept that delivery dates for babies are not quite an exact science. ho hum, when he or she decides to turn up, we will try to be ready for it!

Michele next goes for a scan on 20th June. I will be with her of course, but I doubt they will want to scan my tummy! that should be 14 weeks into pregnancy, and I believe it is possible that we will be able to find out if it is a boy or a girl. I doubt that I will pass up on the chance to find out!!

Michele's cravings are getting more and more interesting - she absolutely needed fillet steak and tons of vegetables for lunch today, which was nice!

OK, our other major event - Richard and Erika's wedding. it went really well, and everyone had a fun time. the Elvis impersonator doing the singing was ace!!

some of our family came out for it - Colin, Angela, Christopher and Andrew to be precise. it was wonderful to see them all, and sadly we waved bye-bye last night. it sounds like they got home OK!

what other news do I have for you? well, I have been back at verk for three days, and it seems in my absence I was made employee of the month. nice one!

it's is Matt's birthday today - sounded like he was having fun when I called him, I trust he still is!!

oh, well, that's just about it all from here for now.

be excellent to each other!

not taken the pirates long....

the rather bad looking pirate copy of Episode III. you can clearly see that this is a time-encoded copy, with someone fading out the time stamp.

really, this is not worth the effort. the original DVD will be out by the end of the year. for such a special film, do not waste your time or spoil the experience with such a poor version of it.

seen it!

Episode III = ace film. go and see it as soon as possible!!!

Revenge Of The Sith and other news

well, I am a mere 14 hours away from seeing Revenge Of The Sith.

that does not seem to exciting anymore, considering Michele is pregnant!

totally out of the blue, and certainly unplanned, but there you go!

will endeavour to send more news and so on when the shock goes and it's all 100% joy!

No Way, Sis

well, thanks to a nightmare in the traffic this morning, I was able to hear the new Oasis album twice today.

it's not bad, but it is not great either. it's the quality of the b-sides for the singles off the first two albums - very good, but not quite good enough. ho hum, well worth a listen, and please go and buy it. I will as soon as they release it here - that could be a year or so, knowing now useless our CD stores are!

14 days today and Revenge Of The Sith hits the cinemas. nice one!

be excellent to each other!

a mere 17 days to go...... Star Wars Episode III : Revenge Of The Sith. nice one, hard to believe that this event is barely two weeks away! wahoo!

anyway, I have been having a look at some other, lesser films in the mean time.

Sin City, picked up mainly because Matt was after a copy, is not a bad film at all. I have no idea at all about the graphic novel it is based on, but it may well be worth a look on the basis of this flick. Mickey Rourke yet again proves he is one of the most underused sources of talent in the galaxy, and Bruce Willis stands around a bit doing Bruce Willis things.

Constantine I have not watched, but Mrs Ricketts has. she seemed to enjoy it. well, she was impressed with the special effects, hence me hearing "holy s@#$" every few minutes as she saw it. me? watch Keanu? I don't think so, my dear.

Hide And Seek is yet another entry into the world of Robert De Niro's "look, give me the cheque and I will mumbe a few things and then shout a bit" works. oh dear, what a shame to see the great one constantly slumming it. which leads nicely into.....

GodSend, featuring more of the De Niro as painted above.

what the hell else did I watch? oh, Ring 2. well, the first one was OK, this one is kind of more of the same and yet not more of the same. see it and figure it out.

back to verk tomorrow after the long weekend. no doubt a chaotic morning ahead, no surprises there.

anyway, be excellent to each other!!
