Well Homebase have decided to give all their staff a free NeedleLast Christmas Tree (apparently worth Â£20), so that means we are going to end up with two, since both my sister and I work there.
On the Christmas front, itâ€™s only a fortnight on Saturday to my works night out over in East Kilbride. And its now week 8 (or maybe week 9) of University already!
The Christmas TV this year looks relatively crap, unless you happen to be blessed with Sky, lets see, we have a film at 8.30 on BBC1 on Christmas eve, they just havenâ€™t decided what one it will be yet :), although Steptoe and Son the film is on at 12.20, channel 4 comes in with the 100 greatest musicals and Five is as predictable as always with National Lampoons Christmas Vacation.
Christmas Day fares a little better with Shrek on BBC1, and Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, is also on some time over the Christmas period on BBC1, but I cant find it on the schedules 🙂
I also went to see White Chicks with Kathryn, Lorna ∓ Steven from work, it was hilarious, if you havenâ€™t seen it yet, and its been out a while I suggest you go and see it.
On the games front, I have become addictive to Halo (Not Halo 2) for the PC, the single player campaigns are utter crap, I started playing it, got to end of first part, to where you escape from the ship before it crashes within 5 minutes, simply shooting anything that shot at me. Luckily I was saved from going any further by my graphics card driver crashing â€“ a problem I have now fixed (hopefully). But although the single player version is utter crap, the online multiplayer game is brilliant, especially when you add a program called TeamSpeak that allows you to talk using a mic to other opponents, or other people within the â€˜chat roomâ€™ on TeamSpeak, far easier that typing, you can also use it in the background while you are typing essays!
And my exchange goes live with Broadband sometime early December, so hopefully I will soon be saying bye bye to AOL and its random disconnects when youâ€™re doing something important.
