Wednesday 3rd November – The Social Network

Morning

St. John’s CathedralFeeling not the best, and with some concerns and a broken front door after last night, I called in sick at work, and caught up on some of the sleep I’d missed out on last night.

Afternoon

The glass man came and fixed the front door. It cost $140. I picked Bronwen up from her work just before two,St. John’s Cathedral and drove her to the doctor to have her knee looked at. After that, we had a look at the Canon 60D at Photo Continental, which unfortunately still can’t do autofocus in movie mode, and had a late lunch at a nearby vegetarian place.

Night

I felt like cheesecake for dinner, so went to Woolworths and bought cheesecake. St. John’s CathedralIt was a terrible idea, and isn’t making me feel well. After my disastrous dinner, Bronwen and I drove to South Bank and watched “The Social Network”—they’ve done an impressive job making a boring subject quite engrossing, but I suspect it’s an entire fabrication, and I wasn’t very impressed.
