The second incarnation of my blog
Watching… another Zac Efron film. This time it was The Paperboy, a complete mess of a film. It lost it’s way very quickly and tried too hard to be quirky. We also watched a really good French film called Dans La Maison in which a 16 year old boy writes essays for his teacher about a friends family that lead to problems for all parties. I was surprised that the excellent lead actor, Ernst Umhauer, had only acted in 2 films before and even more surprised to read that he is 23!
Also watching… a documentary on The Eagles. Glenn Frey came across as not the nicest of people with an enlarged ego and and Don Henley only a little less so.
Eating… a hanger steak for the first time. Pete and I went for a meal at a local restaurant that we had been meaning to go to for ages. The hanger steak, so I am informed, is the cut of beef that is so good, the butcher keeps it for himself. And yes, it was a fantastic steak.
Working… around the home counties as usual, but also at The Gherkin. One of our local clients took their team to our London offices for a group meeting and along with a colleague that really knows how to present, I also presented to them! We then all had lots of beer, which was the best part!
And… this week I am in Edinburgh for a few days. Not bad timing considering it’s fringe time!
