To boldly go

Stayed up late (or was it the regular time on the old clock?) watching Stargate Atlantis and then old episodes of Star Trek. The difference between the two shows is phenomenal - sets are primitive and hokey beyond laughter on the old sci-fi show. Even the music is laughable - except the main theme of course, that's just a classic ;-)

Before the science fiction overdose we watched the first half of 'Side Effects', a thriller about mental illness drugs. Note to self (and anyone else planning to watch the movie): don't watch the second half first. It is a really good movie if you watch it the right way around! Suspenseful, and a good reminder that the pharmaceutical companies (of which I have had a recent run-in) don't always have savoury practices. 

The sun is shining and the snow is melting!!! Yay! After weeks on end of minus 20C and colder, the warmer air is as welcome as a new bride into her husbands arms.
