How was your weekend?





I had a grand day out on Saturday, when I took part in the first ever Authors on the Greene book fair, in Historic Smithville, New Jersey.

Organized by the wonderful Wendy Birkbeck, and her intrepid team of workers from the local, Through the Looking Glass Bookstore, we couldn't have asked for better weather, I made some new friends, met some new readers, like Priscilla and Britney pictured below, and generally had a great time.

To round off an already excellent day, I had a look around Wendy's store, and discovered she also sells British food, including the British version of McVities Plain Chocolate Digestive Biscuits (otherwise known as the most delicious cookies you'll ever taste in this or any other lifetime).

Friday I went to see Resident Evil with a friend. Milla Jovovich does her usual butt-kicking and looking good despite beating up a bunch of living-dead brain-suckers. My only criticism of this was there were not enough surprises and funny zombie moments and the snow didn't look real. Also the plot holes were big enough to drive a... Okay so it's just a video game movie. Still, if Umbrella corporation could build a facility under the ocean I'm sure they could find cures and solutions for every problem on the planet.

I've not seen the Resident Evil movies, but they do look fun :)

They're very silly but also very funny and vicarious. I had an issue when she started killing living people though in the third or fourth movie. I don't know if I can watch another incarnation unless they do something different. I got a little annoyed with the clones being bad one minute and good the next. It waters things down too much and the writers get away with things we'd never be allowed to get away with.
