Went to see Daredevil last night. Good film. Not up to Spiderman but it sure as hell beats the other stuff right now. I love marvel and that world, so i'll always be going to see films like that. Also bought Akira and The Killer on dvd as they were a tenner in a mvc sale. Well worth it. Claire can finally watch Akira and I can enjoy the fab music, superb animation and the amazing plot....wait...did I say plot? I'm not gonna be able to watch it without thinking of Trapper Keeper. "What are you doing..Kyle?"

Won at pool yesterday lunch and again today. Currently looking good and another win will really lift my chances. The last 2 games I have to play are pretty much the easiest on paper. We'll see how it goes. Really hopeful about my prospects this month. Last 2 games are next week, Tuesday and Wednesday. The pressure builds.

Finally I want to bitch about O2, the mobile network. I'm with them, til this summer on a 12 month contract. Karl (a friend at work) found yesterday that he wasn't allowed to have gprs _and_ mms. GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) is like broadband for mobiles. It's always on data transfer at modem speeds. Pretty sweet (i've been using it for months and love it). MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) is the whole photo-messaging thing you keep seeing advertised. I know lots about both, for various reasons. I know that GPRS is the bearer service for MMS and you can't have MMS without it (properly). The fact that O2 won't let you have both is so really really shit that I won't stay with them once my contract expires regardless of my need for MMS. I tried to call them 3 times today so far to change my tariff too...and I keep getting stuck in queues and it's pissing me off. Cock. Suckers.

Anyway, thursday night pool tonight and i'm gonna have a lot of fun. God damn i'm loving pool at the moment.
