I've just had a leaflet put through my door...

Oooh, I've been personally selected! Obviously I'm not actually a homeowner - more of a poverty stricken renter - but they weren't to know that. So what do the people who personally selected me, want me to do? Well, they'd like me to...

An interesting concept, seeing as I'm in a first floor flat. One wonders just how rigorous the selection process was. You also have to wonder what was going through the mind of the person who delivered the leaflet, as he climbed a flight of stairs in order to tell me I'd been selected to have my own conservatory.

But never mind. I'm actually quite excited today, Overnightbecause Lisa's agreed to go to the pictures with me next weekend. We're going to see 'Overnight', a film I've been desperate to see for... oooh, days now. It's a documentary about a guy who was offered a multi-million dollar deal for his first film script, only for it all to go horribly wrong. What could be more entertaining than that? I always enjoy the failure of others, it makes me feel so much better about myself. And to quote my favourite line from Kevin Smith's 'Clerks', "There's nothing more exhilarating than pointing out the shortcomings of others".

Anyhoo, I've watched the trailer here, I've read the reviews here, and now I wanna go see the film. There's a special screening in Cambridge this Sunday, attended by both the director and the producer, who've flown over from America and will be holding a Q & A session afterwards, where mere mortals such as myself can ask them about the film. Tickets are still available, and only cost £6.20 each. And what's more, I'm free all day Sunday.

But I want Lisa to come with me, so I'll be paying £6.50 to see it in Brighton next weekend instead.

And besides, last time I went to Cambridge I got a speeding ticket.
