Dad went back home on Friday.

Today we met up with Dave & Marina and watched Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull. Finchley road cinemas are nice but a bit of a hassle to get to.

Watched CSI 315 last time, good episode, they got rid of the British girl.

I also received another paper spam from Euro Millones Loteria. Scams from Europe look quite interesting.

We ate at Fine Burger Co. The simplest burger is ?5.45 - it is ok. Pickles ?1. The onion rings are nice but very oily. Postmix coke ?1.75, OJ .. not sure where it came from, but that costs ?2.60.
