One of our friends, Duncan Rintoul, who we hadn’t seen for quite some time emailed us out of the blue over the weekend to say he was coming to Canberra and arranging to catch up. Actually, it’s not quite true that he emailed – because he didn’t have our contact details, he found our site (this one) on Google and left a comment, which is automatically emailed to me. Anyway, we’ve had quite a fun night catching up, hanging out, sucking down a few brews and eating some great Indian food.
I should also comment on the movies that Duncan has subjected me to. Since Duncan is staying with us, we hired out a couple of DVD s to watch this evening; we got “Napoleon Dynamite” and “Anchorman“. They’re both strange, and yet funny as well. Napoleon Dynamite was such a random film – things just happened and it was odd, but it was funny at the same time; it’s one of those films that I think would improve with several watchings. Anchorman was probably not quite as funny, but there were some cool bits – particularly the cameos by Jack Black and Ben Stiller.
Anyway, all that aside – it’s cool having people stay, and we look forward to having Duncan and Kate down again sometime in the future, or visting them maybe (rather than driving by and figuring out where there apartment was without stopping in due to time constraints, as we did the last time we were in Thirroul).
