I need a weekend to recover from the weekend

Seriously, people. I am a zombie today. My weekend revolved around the Makro human chain protest we did on Saturday (see here for details). We painted placards, organised volunteers, demonstrated and then spent the entire afternoon hand delivering press releases and video footage to various media. We finished at 6pm, just in time to get ready for STOMP, which was truly awesome once again.

Sunday's early F1 race was also fabulous. It rained, which always makes for an eventful Grand Prix. It was gripping from the first lap to the last - the total opposite of the Bahrain GP two weeks ago.

Then yesterday I worked like a fiend to finish off some web copy for a client and we were on ushering duty at church.

What have I forgotten? I seemt o remember doing something less frenetic somewhere along the line... Oh ja... Saw Shutter Island on Friday night, in between painting protest posters.




It was good. I guessed the main supposed twist in the tale, but there was another twist to make up for it. The acting was impressive and it's certainly suspense-filled, but it felt very long, I must admit. That said, it was probably the most enjoyable Martin Scorsese film I've ever seen. I've disliked most of the others, including all the so-called "classics". Bite me.

Hope everyone else had a good weekend and that the four-day week ahead is awesome.

It must be something in the water. Everyone I've spoken to today is feeling very flat.

I saw 'state of play' the weekend - very good. Terrible sinusitis - feels as if head is stuffed with cotton wool.

The protest looks like it went well! I'm very impressed with how people are actually taking action.
I'm really going to try and organise a race-day get together this year for F1 fans.

Weekend sounds still fun. How cool your protest made the web-news- so cool and how shady of Makro all at once. Hmmm.
