Having watched Bristol Rovers cause an upset by beating Southampton 1-0 in the FA Cup 5th Round, it was time to get some much needed supplies for the big game later on; Manchester United v Arsenal.
Having stepped outside my house ready to walk to the local supermarket the bus came by, running late as usual and I changed my plans and caught a ride into town. There I decided to do some quick shopping then pick up my mountain bike from work, back to supermarket then home for the game.
To that end I got 3 for 2 on these books:
Barack Obama: The Audacity of Hope (an attempt to find out what he stands for)
Martin Goodman: Rome and Jerusalem – The Clash of Ancient Civilisations (the book I chose for free)
John Gribbin: The Universe A Biography (14 billion years in just over 200 pages)
I also purchased The West Wing Season 2. I am very behind on TV, and have been catching up on shows (House and The Sopranos). Anyway I was impressed especially with the writing and characterization. Martin Sheen’s performance especially and for reasons that you may guess this scene caught my eye and I managed to track it down on YouTube (Bible quotes at a homophobic radio call in presenter).
Incidentally Man Utd thrashed Arsenal 4 – 0.
