A Splendid Day
We have a secret event coming up in a week's time, (I'd tell you about it but I know you'd all gatecrash and spoil it) so we had to do some research into posh eateries in the vicinity of Madinat Jumeirah. But first we had to eat, and we went to The Meat Company. It was sensational - these guys certainly know how to cook a steak. We sat outside, beside the fake canal and with the Burj Al Arab in the background. After all the depressing crap happening this week - carnage on the roads, riots at the Burj Dubai site, the Afghan apostasy case, etc, it was somewhat fab to just chill in such a pleasant location.
On the way home we hit the video shop and got a couple of DVDs. I chose a comedy at random, and BetterArf was a bit more careful. She picked 'Elizabethtown'. We watched it and loved it. And then we put my selection into the magic box. Turned out it was 'Galaxy Quest'. We'd actually caught the back end of this on TV once and liked it. So now we had the whole thing, and it is brilliant - very funny.
