• Saw 'The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor' **, which was exactly how I expected it to be. Stupid but mildly amusing. *yawn* The main thing it had going for it, and infact the only reason I paid to see it, was that Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh were in it.

   It was great because apart from having quite a lot of Picasso's art it also had a lot from his own collection which had many other famous artists works.

• Updated sitemap.

• Saw 'Taken'***1/2, starring Liam Neeson. I almost didn't go to see this one at the cinemas because I expected it to be a boring ,generic, hollywood revenge story. Boy was I wrong! I loved it!
• Reminiscing, with Raz, on the old arcade games we used to play we both remembered one of our all-time favourites: 'Xevious'
Also remembered 'Centipede' and 'Dig Dug'. There's a really comprehensive site if you're into that sort of thing: www.klov.com

The rest are videos compiled as gags with his video.
My Tribute to the freaky Angry German Kid:
Angry German Kid
Angry German Kid vs John Howard
Angry German Kid vs Age of Conan
          If you haven't seen the original "Numa Numa Guy" watch this first!
Angry German Kid vs Numa Numa Call me sick, but this is freakin hilaaaarious!
          If you haven't seen the original Dramatic Chipmunk, watch this first!
Angry German Kid vs Dramatic Chipmunk
          If you're not aware of Tom Cruise's scientology-related interview - see this first.

• Feeling the post holiday blues - back to work tomorrow : (
• Learned that even serious diving watches which are water proof (to some serious depths) should never be worn in the shower! Seems logical when pointed out (steam can get into places where water under pressure can't) but it never occured to me that I shouldn't wear my water-proof watch in the shower!
• Learned that if you want to upgrade your mobile phone software you shuld remove the memory card first! The Nokia Software Upgrader I used didn't mention you should remove the memory card and now my mobile can't access the mem-card anymore. (It just keps prompting for a password which was never set in the first place. "3" (my mobile service provider) have credited me with $15 towards my next bill.
