On Saturday, rwrylsin and I went to see The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. I liked it ! But I was expecting it to be weirder than it was - it was neat, but not quite waaaay out there (or maybe I've just been exposed to too much strange stuff on the Internets).

Anyway, that was the first time we've been to a cinema since we got back to Australia (so, over a year), and I can't remember when the last time was before that or what we saw. It was probably in Glasgow, probably the Cineworld or whatever it's called these days, and it was probably a cold night (because that's the most common kind in Glasgow :-) ).

Meanwhile, I've had my bike for just over a year now, and today's commute took it just over 5000km. That means I've accomplished my goal at the start of the year of doing 4200km this year - obviously I'll have to be more ambitious in 2010 !

In other news, our office is being moved in to the CBD, and in a couple of weeks, our nearest train station is closing so they can demolish it and finish the new shinier version[1], so I may be riding to work 4 or 5 days a week for a while, getting a good start on whatever my goal is for the year. And I think I'm going to have a go at the 210km Around the Bay in a Day next October.

[1] Yes, the irony is not lost on us, after living next to the Partick redevelopment for three years and not seeing it finished, they're going to get Nunawading done in about six months.
