I wuz robbed....


Well we all traipsed down to the local licensed bandits masquerading as a picture house the other day to watch 'Narnia - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'

The film was okay I guess. A bit slow starting, but I was a long time recovering from the ultimate shock of forking out a Kings ransom for a few nibbles to chew on whilst watching said movie.

I mean. Come on. Over £7 for a drink, some popcorn and a handful of dubious sweets. It's daylight robbery. I now realise why Mrs K and I rent DVD's to watch in the comfort of our own home.

The experience was also spoiled by a little angel sitting adjacent to moi constantly checking her mobile phone to see if her friend has changed her hair colour or something just as meaningless.

Despite the friendly request before the films start to switch off all mobiles, all the little darlings were constantly flipping their phones just to check their own existence.

At one time, so many phones were being flipped it was like the 'Northern Lights ' in there. You could probably power the National Grid off the glow from these things.

How did we survive before the invention of the cell phone?
