⬆️Warner Village Islington

Well worth going to see, and Warner Village Islington was a great place to see it. Apart from the bloke sat next to me, who stank. Seats were big, plenty of space, very comfortable.

Johnny Depp is great as Captain Jack Sparrow, he apparently based his character on Keith Richards and he plays the part with a spectacular swagger. Keira Knightly is a bit annoying as the kidnapped English rose type, and I'm not so keen on the zombie aspect to the film, but it's a really enjoyable film. Good to see a nod in there to my favourite film The Crimson Pirate too.

Nephew J had his own pirate fun for his 3rd birthday today, a visit to Pirate Pete's, some sort of kids play centre, I'm going there next time I'm down in Hampshire.

It's rained today, cooled things down a bit, we got home nice and quick on the 476 though. Now homemade spicy lentil soup with sausages, the first step on a week of "soup only diet". Is it really only soup if it's got a pound of sausages in it? Nevermind, we will eat it and watch Jonathon Creek, who could ask for a better evening?

Tomorrow: remember the Suede tickets and try to choose between Reading Festival and Canterbury Fayre...
