Went to Belfast with Keith for the afternoon/evening.
Headed into Shaftsbury square and went shopping.
I was intrested in looking around for a copy of
Micro Mart ( a trade rag for computer components)
as I couldn't find it in eason's back in Newry.
Oddly, I did find it in Eason's in Belfast but
I need to tackle some of the staff back in Newry
and see if it's a case of them not carrying it or
simply being sold out.
Keith wanted to go get some presents for his brother
so we walked on around to look into WH Smiths, HMV
and Virgin Megastore. One thing I noticed was that
DVD does not appear to have taken off much in the
provance. I can see that I'll be doing lots of
online ordering in the future 8/
Having had a look through a few HiFi/Electrical
stores it seems to be some unwritten commandment
that all DVD players will be silver. Can't find any
that are black. Again this looks like someting I'm
going to ahev to order up. *sigh*
Towards the evening we headed over to get pizza
from a slightly upmarket restraunt. Nice place a
little slow though. Unfortunately having been
somewhat spoilt with refills being free in North
Carolina, it's somewhat of an annoyance to suddenly
be charged for the refills. (1.30 UKP ~2.00USD
Went on from Shaftsbury square across the westlink
to the Odessey village which houses 12 cinema
screens, an ice rink and a number of restraunts.
Got a coffee from the Hard Rock cafe and mused
over various happenings during the week. Headed
on upstairs to sort out tickets for 'The Bourne
Identity' which was playing about 50 minutes later,
so we just strolled around the complex. Eventually
stoppedand looked over a railing to the floors
below where we could see some woman and her friend
being refused admitance to a nightclub below making
a huge scene about it for about for ages. She'd
still not given up trying to get into the nightclub
by the time we went to see the film. Silly woman.
Film was fairly good, though possibly they had
cranked the sound up a little too high.
Left the complex at 23:55 and drove on home.
A good day out.
