sam gene 1

At first I was afraid, I was petrified...

I am rapidly becoming hacked off that everyone else on the effing planet gets to see Casino Royale before we do. Bloody unfair. Coalition of the willing my arse. Not if it doesn't even get us Bond films. Mind you, if you're desperate, you can get in a day earlier here.

Had another oO LOM moment while reading Dalziel and Pascoe:
"So suppose when you die, time shifts? Well, why not? It certainly stops, doesn't it? Briefly for a moment as she dies, she goes back. You know they say your life flashes before you as you drown? So, it's a cliche, but it's what people who've been saved from drowning have said. Suppose it's not just your life but the whole of life. And once you're beyond yours, you're beyond the point of being saved."
- Reginald Hill 1980, "A Killing Kindness".
