It was a nostalgic day all round… It started with a viewing of the new Thundercats cartoon (which I’ll mention next time) and continued with a trip to the movie theatre to see Captain America (in 2D).

The extremely uncomfortable office chair. James Bond DVD’s on the top shelf – Star Trek: The Next Generation on the middle […]
