Dinners and movies.
On Wednesday Emma, James and Caterina, Shy and I went to dinner at Narayan’s and met his new flatmate Samara. Narayan cook lovely curry food which everybody enjoyed. Catarina fell asleep and Samara fared commendably in a conversation with four strangers talking about their hobby. On Friday after visiting the pub Alex, Emma, Gavin, Mark, Shy and I walked around Civic looking for a reasonably priced restaurant with room for six diners. After several aborted endeavours we resorted to the Pancake Parlour and crammed into a booth. Shy introduced people to her Special Theory of Jerks and her General Theory of Human Relationships. Unfortunately it mostly went over my head as I missed a salient point in the introduction. On Saturday Emma, Shy and I brought the makings of luncheon to Alex, Kate and Mark’s house, and we watched DVDs. Later Emma and Shy brought Chinese food and Gavin, and we watched more DVDs. On DVD we watched The Chaser’s War on Everything
, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
, Kill Bill Volume 1
, and 28 Days Later
. Yesterday Emma, Gavin, Narayan, Shy, Simon, Steve and I went to Wagamama for delicious Japanese food and Gus’ Cafe for normal coffee. We had lots of funny conversations about people’s contrary opinions of various science fiction and fantasy icons, which was nice.
