    Aw, Saturday's almost over [face_tired]. Watched the China F1 GP qualifying this morning, picked up our new laundry dryer and hauled it upstairs with help from our neighbour. The weather's great, as was the case with the last couple of weekends.

    Other than that I've been kinda lazy, playing a few rounds on my PSP and having fun with Linet. Of course, some minor chores on our attic as well.

    Coming week Battlefront: Renegade Squadron is due to come out for PSP only o_O

    I also saw some ads for a new PS3, which is priced 200 euros cheaper than the first edition. So far, the only difference I could find was the smaller HD (40GB instead of 60).

    France have beaten New Zealand by 20-18 to turf the AllBlacks out of the Rugby World Cup! Today has been a day of upsets, for sure. Both of the beaten teams were favorites to win. So England play France next weekend in one of the semi-finals.

    Hello everyone and nice to see Jedi_ Liz posting in here :) We had a nice time visiting my folks. We even bought some.....Christmas decorations. Yes I know what you are all saying, I am nuts 8-} the decorations were very unique and those of you out there that know me also know that I am a Christmas elf :) It is very hard to focus on Halloween when Christmas decorations start appearing in the stores.

    I have server work starting in 6 hours and running right into the morning. I am also going to start cooking for Thanksgiving lunch ( Canadian Thanksgiving is on Monday )
    It is going to be a busy night :)

    My boyfriend bought a Nintendo DS today. Now we can play against each other. I think I'm more excited about it than he is! :p I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass -- ordered my copy online and should see it by Tuesday. I forgot that Monday was a holiday or I probably would have picked it up locally. :oops:

    I'm just starting to think about Christmas, Mike. Need to start on my shopping. Last year I waited till the last minute (I'm usually done by Thanksgiving at the latest) and I'm never doing that again!

    I grabbed one of the Boba Fett Character Keys that's being offered over at SWS. Looks sweet!

    Cars is one of my favorite movies. "He did WHAT in his cup?!" [face_laugh]

    My boyfriend isn't sure how long he's going to be here yet, Mike. He's aiming for a week, but might be able to stay for 10 days depending on his work schedule.

    I hope that you both have a great time together Ruth. I know all about having a long distance relationship.

    My server work has begun. I am hoping to be done in 5 hours.

    Morning all! Cloudy here but not cold. More rugby today - South Africa vs Fiji this afternoon and Scotland vs Argentina tonight. If Scotland make it through they could end up playing England for the final - assuming both teams won their semi-finals.

    Boy, Lewis Hamilton sure knows how to please F1 fans [face_laugh]. He was well on his way to secure the World Title, when all of a sudden his right rear tyre showed considerable wear and he practically limped to the pit area. But right before entering the pit lane he went off into the gravel and didn't get out! Raikonnen won, with Alonso second, so now we have one race left and still three contenders for the World Title!

    Well, Monday's almost over. On my way to work I drove straight into a 8 mile traffic jam. A year or two ago, I was hardly bothered by traffic jams, but more and more those become more of an everyday occurance. Tomorrow I will attend a congres for work. I've got a first class train ticket, so that should be relaxing. I'm a bit under the weather though. Hopefully a hot shower and a good night's sleep will remedy that.

    Morning all! It's a rainy day here. I think every woman with a screaming brat was in Sainsburys this morning. And still no Wave 4 there - just Chewies, Biggs and Vaders..
