Booo 01Nov08

Well, it’s almost 5AM in London and I’m still up after winding down from “watching” the UT game. Texas shoulda ran the clock down more, but I guess hindsight’s 20/20. I wasn’t able to find any streams of the game, so Andrew kindly rigged up a microphone and we Skyped it up so I could get audio of the game. It actually worked out pretty well, I think.

I went to the Borough Market “today” with some BVers which was pretty cool. I wish my appetite was a bit more alive but it never really is in the “morning.” It was around 1PM, but that’s 8AM in Texas and I don’t think my body’s quite adjusted yet especially since I woke up at 11. =) Regardless, had some tasty bits of food and the atmosphere there was pretty nifty.

I then went to see Quantum of Solace but was sorely disappointed. The action was mediocre at best, there were quite a few slow points in the movie where I found myself just day dreaming about other stuff, the acting was not so hot (particularly from the new comers), and there weren’t even any amusing one-liners (at least none that I found memorable enough). By this point, I hope I’ve talked it down enough for you people who are going to see it just because it’s a Bond movie to get at least some enjoyment out of it, but to me it seemed like a waste of time. I’m honestly very surprised it has a 76% on Rotten Tomatoes UK (not sure if that’s any different than US, but it won’t not redirect me).
