[Playing |The Railway Children (1970s version)]

So I'm sitting in York House, watching The Railway Children (worth watching), and it's now the adverts because it's on ITV and they don't believe in letting us watch something without interruptions. All hail the BBC, who do!

Anyway, it's the adverts, and one caught my eye. Picture, if you will, your typical silver car, sitting in a car park on a sunny day. Suddenly it transforms (transformer-style), into a carbot which then starts dancing. Who's car, you might ask? Citroen.

And we also have MasterCard, with their usual "There are somethings money can't buy. For everything else, there's MasterCard". Except this time, they say "There are some things money can't buy. For all your Christmas needs, there's MasterCard". Does this include the things that money can't buy? </mode=evil grammer nazi>

Haven't seen the Railway Children, read the book when I was about eight though. This is Emma (blonde haired girl that sits next to you and Rick at uni) since I know how rubbish you are with names :P

The film's worth watching. I just happened to be there when someone turned the TV on, and ended up watching it. Also saw half of Heavyweights, and an episode of Smallville. Yesterday (well, the day before yesterday by now) I saw a fair chunk of The Dish, and a couple other random things (horseracing for example).

BTW, congratulations on your inagural rant!
