In one of my rare ventures into the outside world, I went over to New Brunswick (the city, not the province of Canadia) to watch X-Men: 3: the last stand: more colons: last night. It was pretty tolerable entertainment (although: shock! horror! Dumbledore dies at the end. No, not really). Probably the highlight was recognising one of the locations (supposedly in San Francisco) as the Sheraton Wall Centre in Vancouver. Also known as the venue for SODA 2005 (which I attended, eventually).
