Home again

Well, obviously not a great deal has happened since I got on the train. I spent the time from Euston to just north of Crewe watching the Star Trek parody movie Star Wreck: In The Pirkinning, reckoned to be one of the finest or at least most successful of Finnish films. I downloaded it ages ago but have never found the time to watch it till today. It's very fine, with some moments of brilliance, and I recommend it to anyone with half a gigabyte and two hours to spare. The site for it is http://www.starwreck.com - be amazed by Captain Pirk, the Plingons and Baabel 13.
The movie had almost finished when we reached Crewe, where three BTPs who looked like they meant business joined the train, No idea what happened: not my carriage. But that's all as it leaves me at present, and probably won't be posted till I get home.
