Politically aware mice and zombies

Mouse update... activity could be clearly heard in house when I got home around 6.15pm. Tracked the sound down and have discovered their food source. A bag with some mini bars of Green and Black's chocolate in, that Sarah gave me as a pressie some time ago (and I have to be in the right mood to eat straight chocolate...weird I know). Anyway... at least I can now say this about my unwelcome tenants, at least they are on the organic and Fairtrade tip...

Much as I hate to discourage such right on scavenging, I remove the chocolate, save for small piece that I place on a trap at the previous location of bag. Let's see how the like it now...

Having set this up I head out for dinner and DVD's.

Shaun of the Dead - fantastic. If you haven't already seen this film then I highly recommend it. If you liked Spaced, you'll love this.

Probably the best British film for a long while and it's a testament to the strength of the whole cast , that for once Bill Nighy, even in what is a fairly minor role, doesn't steal the show.

The DVD has some good extras on it as well. I particularly like the section entitled "Plot Holes". Wondering how Ed survives the sacking of the pub and ends up in the garden shed? Well now you can find out - all explained by pictureboards accompanied by a voiceover from the relevant actor.

Maybe the Hell Boy DVD will explain that spotlight. Somehow I don't think I'll be buying it to find out.
