Well, I passed the exam and now have my motorcycle learner's permit,
which means I'm going for a ride this weekend with a couple of
workmates. Sweet

Went looking for some second-hand gear today at lunch; I'm not really
looking to buy stuff yet, but I'd like to at least get an idea of how
much I'm going to have to spend to get some decent stuff. It's much
harder to grow back skin than it is to buy another set of leathers...

Syndia and I went to see The Importance of Being Earnest (the
movie, not a play) last night. No surprise - they took some artistic
licence with a few points - but it was still quite well done. Judy Dench
was excellent, as usual... Reese Witherspoon was a bit melodramatic at
times (more so than required by the script) and Frances O'Connor reminds
me so much of Mariah Carey that she annoys me on sight. Sorry 'bout
that. Anyway, it's worth seeing IMHO.
