Almost got the chance to work from home today. Big Boss dude sent out an email telling everyone to stay at home cos of freezing rain...in our head office in Canada. It just happened to be raining over here too. Probably not freezing as such, but it was pretty cold.

In other news I have switched utility providers. Southern Electric came around to convince me to switch to them under the guise that they'd heard that some customers had been billed incorrectly. By pure chance they happened to find the one person that this was the case. Although you have to wonder since it's them that read the meters if they didn't organise the bill screw up in the first place. Anyhow. Being uber lazy it took him hardly any effort to convince me to switch.

And he even read my gas meter too which is the first time in over a year it's been looked at. Scottish Power believe my gas meter to read ~3500 when in actual fact it's ~2000. At best guess based on the last bill they owe me about £1000. w00t! That'll help fund my DVD addiction a lot.

Speaking of DVDs, I've finally gotten around to watching The Pacifier. Which was a lot better than people might have expected. Vin Diesel was very good at shouting at small kids and kicking evil ninja butt! No sign of him playing D&D though. I wonder what the kids reactions to him playing were. I wonder if he forced them to play like Dame Judi

Also Tescos are selling DVDs for under a quid. Looks like utter cheese mostly though - only had a brief chance to look on the way to work. I shall have to have better look tomorrow or something.

w00t! My 4 DVD cases have arrived. Seperately. Amazon seem to have an aversion to shipping things in one container these days. Now all I need is some free time to put all the discs in the cases.

Oh and they've shipped the new Mage: The Shiny books too! Uberw00t!
