A chilled out weekend that began with a few hours of playing Resident Evil 4 on the PS2, acquired by trading in some of my older games that I don’t play anymore.
RE4 is slightly less horror and slightly more FPS than previous incarnations, but I think it does so well. The interface seems slicker, there’s less really annoying, pointless puzzles and more story. I’m actually interested in what happens next. So I can see myself keeping myself amused with this in the odd moments of spare time.
On Sunday penny and I went to see the Rodin exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, which we enjoyed immensely. My favourite piece was the Burghers of Calais, rather than the more well-known piece, The Thinker.
Monday, yesterday, Penny had a busy day. She had her first introductory driving lesson, a preliminary to her intensive course starting soon, and then went in to London in the evening. The purpose of her visit was to go to see Neil Gaiman announce, talk about, read from and sign his new book, Fragile Things. Apparently she enjoyed it immensely.
