Last night I went to my friend's annual Halloween party, and much fun was had.

Costumes were compulsory, and this year I went as...

Well, I have to call the property management company as last night...in the middle of dinner the power went from both the oven and microwave. It's not the circuit breaker, and I can't reach behind the oven...so they can deal with it. It's what we pay rent for, right?

Also youngest goes back to school on Wednesday *pauses a moment for cheering* so I have to go into town with him and try and find him some new shoes. Also going to take him to a movie (probably District 9) as a pre-back to school treat. Must decide whether will also treat eldest and his girlfriend. Hmmmm.

I watched the Russian (Kazahk, I believe) movie "Mongol". Seeing as I have a Genghis pup, I thought it might be interesting, and while I'm not fully versed yet on his history (pup is solely based on a novel characterization), this was so inaccurate to make movies like "Troy" and "King Arthur" etc. seem like documentaries! I was WTFing through most of it...and this film was Oscar nominated!

Finally, a photo a friend took of our 'nearby' wildfire )

Just a quick note, I won't be around at all tomorrow, either as I have to fly down to the LA area to pick up...

My Mini!!! )

...and it's a 7 or so hour drive back up here...so whatever time I get back, I'm going to be knackered. And, so far that's pretty much all I've seen of my car before it left Germany.

Also, for those with any interest at all...

My new house )

It was my birthday this weekend (and thanks to all of you who sent me birthday wishes as I wasn't around to thank you all on time *g*), and my hubby got me an amazing birthday present...having a day's lesson learning to drive a rally car.

It was AWESOME!!! And the fact that in the morning it absolutely poured with rain (plus thunderstorm) didn't dampen it at all...in fact it made it even more fun...except for the fact that no one could see more than about a six-inch square area out of the car because it was so steamed up. It did clear up in the afternoon, but the track was still wet, so lots of opportunity for skids, powerslides, and handbrake turns (and [livejournal.com profile] phantomas it gave me a real Bodie and Doyle buzz *ahem*)

Picspam, plus video )

The next day we went to the Milton Keynes shopping mall for Collectormania 10. Always fun to wander around and see the people and stalls. I did get one autograph from David Wenham (Faramir), although he wasn't doing any posed photos I did get to tell him how much I was looking forward to seeing "300" which he's in alongside Gerry Butler (though I didn't mention that GB was the reason I so looking forward to it :D).
