    The failures that led to the Infected blood scandal, on the runup to the Inquiry making it's final report on the 20th. There will be 3 families who lost haemophiliac family members to infections on it, and me as the token surviving haemo.

    Well, I'm two for two on NuNuWHO, and I have come to expect Maximum RTD Indulgence with a something of a Batman '66-ness but I enjoyed most of the episode until the massively self-indulgent epilogue sequence which got me like...

    I feel I was pretty game throughout but I'm glad next week's is a Moff episode!
    It's definitely aiming for...

    Had a message from my mum yesterday informing me that Home Bargains have Pop! vinyl figures for £2.99 each.

    She managed to get a couple of MOTU for me:

    Superman was on his final reboot and couldn't be having any purple-topped, hive-mind members.

    Finally booked to see the 40th Anniversary of Transformers at our local cinema on Saturday.

    Decided to go alone as I thought it may be a bit long and uninteresting for my lads.

    Neat. These ones were also in Poundland last year for a fiver each, so I guess they didn't sell well even then and filtered further down the discount store line to Home Bargains.

    Couple of nice B&M buys for me. The ring light was on discount for £3 so seemed too good a bargain to miss. Bought one for my sister too. Works really well. As does the speaker. Surprisingly loud for the small size. I bought it because I just wanted something small for playing music easily without headphones from my old MP3 and portable cd players via aux. Although I did have fun hiding the speaker in the lounge where my mother sits and then speaking through the microphone from the kitchen saying 'Help me. Help me' in a forlorn childlike voice. Unfortunately she too quickly sussed it was me messing about. :(

    Welp, it's the day before Payday and both Discounted Alpha Commando Snakes & Timber, and Nunchuk are still in-stock so I have been compelled to snag them so I can use Snakes' gun, suppressor and holster and the doubling of Nunchuk's nunchuks to sort out the Brroklyn ninja's loadout, snag a third wolf because that figure is peak (and there's a whole pack of Snakes-friendly wolves in the area around his cabin), and have an Alpha Commando Snakes that's mostly unadulterated (I'm thinking I'll give him TF Duke's gun and holster to replace the one he's donating to Ralph).
    Also twigged what to do with my decapitated Kamakura body, gonna make that into an "Arashikage Trainee" Snakes, I tried a neck swap with TF Duke yesterday as his generic blonde looks would fit pre-scarred unmasked Snakes but once again the V1 Classified Duke neck proved rubbish and gappy in the swap! looks like I'll be using a spare Nunchuk noggin with the flappy bit cut off instead!

    Watched the following on Netflix over the past couple of days,

    "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood" ( Using a flamethrower on Nazis and the followers of Charles Manson is a wholesome theme I can buy into and the fictional Western series "Bounty Law" was pulled off pretty well :D  )

    "Crank" ( Loved it, LOVED IT! :D  )

    It's soggy bum time at the Old Trafford water park,

    If there's a positive spin to be put on this it's that getting drenched would distract supporters from what's happening on the pitch :D
