Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith was absolutely phenomenal, thanks for asking! I can't wait to see it again. When I got home last night and dived online to check mail, I found that Rev Gareth Saunders had just got back from seeing it too, and we started discussing it on internet messenger. He told me that right at the beginning when the screen went black and the words A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away … appeared on the screen, he said out loud, in a really disappointed voice, "Aww … I've seen this one!"I'll not give any spoilers about the film, but there is one bit with Yoda that had the whole audience in stiches and applause. If you've seen it, you'll know which bit it was. I spent all of today at work walking down corridors trying (and failing) to open doors and lift coffee cups using only my supposed Jedi powers.

So that's the circle of films complete, and it is all poised for the next installment. Wonder if they'll make a fourth episode.

After a very busy week I am really quite knackered, but looking forward to tomorrow. Partly due to the impending lie in, and partly due to the fact that I have various things for Australia to sort out which will make it all seem more real and exciting. But most of all I am looking forward to tomorrow night, because I am going out with some mates, the girlfriend of one of whom is dragging out her colleagues – a bunch of dieticians.

I've never seen dieticians en masse before. Part of me has a mental image of a collection of finely-honed, Scandinavian-looking beauties with perfect skin and flawless teeth, who drink only Pimm's or light white wines.

Another part of me imagines a gang of fat, ugly chain-smokers knocking back the pints of Tennent's like there's no tomorrow.
