I've not blogged for a few days, not entirely sure why - thinking about it I guess I've been somewhat tired on an evening. I remember reading somewhere that your creative juices flow best in a morning - and I tend to blog on an evening - so perhaps that's why I've not been that creative.
Anyway, I've been playing a lot of Call of Duty Modern Warfare lately, numbers 2 and 3. I particularly like the Survival mode in MW3 - for the uninitiated, you face progressively harder waves of enemies, but you also gain money for the kills you make, allowing you to buy aids such as a Delta team task force or an air strike to back you up (or more mundane items like ammunition). I feel vaguely guilty that I've not been playing Pandaria, but for whatever reason some mindless violence appears to be satiating my gaming needs at the minute.
I finally saw the first episode of Red Dwarf X last night, and it's a return for form for the Red Dwarf crew. Personally after season 6 I went off Red Dwarf - the episodes seemed to be more about the crew doing missions and actually being quite heroic, when really they're a bunch of misfits that somehow have survived through the extinction of the human race and should really be spending their time mucking about and generally being a bit silly. I actually laughed out loud at one point so I'm looking forward to getting half an hour to watch the next episode.
The only thing that does distract me from the show is the fact that the guys (with the exception of Kryten obviously) have got wrinkles! Don't get me wrong, I love the Red Dwarf crew, they are seriously ace, but the actors are now around the age of 50. The series started 24 years ago! This sort of thing makes me feel old (and I know I will now receive many comments from people older than me). I don't know what it is, but I seem to have trouble spotting the passage of time. Perhaps it's not just me. I heard today that Girls Aloud are getting back together and releasing a greatest hits album of the last ten years. Again, I had no idea that it had been ten years since they got together.
I suppose I should take from this that time passes too quickly and we need to make the most of it.
Right - I'm off to bed, I have a day's gardening ahead of me tomorrow!
