Watching 'Independence Day' on the box. A silly formulaic and very cliche film but harmless bit of dross for a Saturday night at home. I'm starting to cheer for the aliens. The put-upon Americans are getting on my nerves already. Just zap them now, please dear aliens. I've had quite enough. A man can only take so much, after all.

Reading. Now I'm living the life of a single man again I have started to do more reading and I have to say I am really enjoying it. There's nothing quite like settling down to read for a few hours on end in a book you just know you are going to enjoy. What a pleasure for the senses. It engages the whole spectrum of human emotions and triggers thoughts that you would not have had otherwise. I've just put up a few book shelves and there is extra capacity, enabling me to buy some more volumes. Hooray!
