Today’s “impossible mission” was a lot more feasible than I had imagined. I left work at 4.30pm and walked to the cinema with Sam. We arrived in good time and the pre-booked tickets caused no problems. We even had time to visit Weatherspoons pub, which I am now calling Chav Central.

There were no queues for popcorn or to get into the cinema screen – although Sam and I did mistake a random gathering of people for a queue and ended up standing aimlessly in the lobby for five minutes waiting for the queue-that-never-was to diminish.

As for the film, I was impressed – well, I’m a massive Simpsons fan, so unless Matt Groening was to drop a massive clanger, it was always going to please me. It was great seeing my favourite characters on the big screen, “Spiderpig” was excellent and there were some very funny moments, along with a particularly strange/disturbing one involving Bart Simpson’s genitalia… put it this way, Gary Glitter would probably like it.

My only criticism of the movie is that it did come across a bit like an extended episode, kind of like the Family Guy movie. It would have been nice to see a brand new concept, a bit like the South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut – still the best TV-movie transition ever.

The film finished in good time, allowing me to make a leisurely stroll to Twerton Park. I arrived on time, did not have to spend money on a taxi, or run and cause myself unwanted respiratory problems and heart attack.

The game was OK – as well as can be expected for an unplanned pre-season friendly. Simon turned up at half time and blagged himself entry for a mere £3 – I suppose he missed both of Craig Davidge’s first half goals though. It was good meeting him and we had to restrain ourselves my mocking Gloucester fans and players with the chant of

IT’S GOT SOME ALGAE AT THE BOTTOM

Seriously, my sympathies go out to the residents of Gloucester. It must be hell having no water, flooded houses and wading around in sewage – a bit like a typical day in Huddersfield. I hope tonight’s game at Bath City Football Club raised GCFC some much needed cash.

Well that’s it for tonight. No doubt I’ll be blogging more over the weekend.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
