Earlier this week I stumbled across Aaron Draplin’s Tall Tales From a Big Man talk on YouTube. I was lucky enough to see him give this talk in Manchester several years ago, and it’s still a great talk. This slide made me chuckle.
Not so many films this week, the first was Hobbs and Shaw which was a complete hoot. I’m an unashamed fan of Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham so this was perfect for an evening of brain relaxing entertainment.
One thing that does annoy me about the Fast & Furious films is the use of CGI cars and actors for many stunts.
There’s no evidence of that in the first trailer for the new Bond film No Time to Die, which had me feeling like a kid again. Cannot. Wait.
At work we spent two days running a series of Discovery workshops for a major project in H2 next year. It felt a little odd covering in two days what took months in my last role. That was a much bigger project with a much bigger budget and one that is still ‘on hold’ to the best of my knowledge.
On Thursday evening my friend Richard and I ran our 31st MK Geek Night, for me it was one of the best Geek Nights I can remember. For this event we changed from our normal schedule and had three ‘headline’ talks from James White, Naomi White and Brendan Dawes. All three talks were brilliant, funny, moving and inspiring.
I’ve written most of this update standing in the queue at the Post Office waiting to post my driving licence after being caught on camera for the third time in 18 months. I’d never been caught before this run, so if you average them out over the time I’ve been on the road it works out as one offence every ten years. Which sounds much better.
On Saturday we bought our Christmas tree and have spent the weekend decorating the house. My wife always does an amazing job and the house looks fabulous. It really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
