Dude, Where's My Car?

Though I said I wouldn't be back on the computer until Sunday, due to travel back on Saturday, my father and I actually returned a day earlier, as we decided that it might be a good idea to have a full weekend of relaxation before I went to back to the office.

The week was very eventful. We went to Salperton Castle, where we hoped to see some jousting last Sunday. Unfortunately, it rained badly, and we just had the tour of the castle. The rest of the week, ironically, was very sunny, so my arms and face look quite red.

We went to Plymouth on the Tuesday, which is a lovely place; there was a beautiful statue of Drake on the hoe, and an excellent shopping centre. It was only when we returned to the car did our problems start; we couldn't find where we had parked it. The two of us got very desperate, walking the streets trying to find where it was. Eventually, we went in a hotel and called the police, as we thought it had been stolen. A police car picked us up. What onlookers must have thought as they put us in the back seat, I don't know!

We went around the streets, unable to find the car, until finally the driver went into one small road we hadn't been, and there it was! We had completely forgotten it was there.

On Saturday night, we went to a summer show version of 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire', in which prizes are awarded instead of money. For only the second time in the summer season, the contestant get the top prize of a Jaguar car.

We also went to the theatre on Thursday night to see an Agatha Christie play, which was very good.

On two other nights, we went to the cinema and saw 'War of the Worlds' (dreadful) and 'Bewitched' (quite good).

Remind me never to see anything with Tom Cruise in!

Welcome back, Cap'n.

Don't see anything with Tom Cruise in it.

Ciera said...

your trip sounds like fun. I've changed blogsites, btw.

dddragon said...

What a trip! And I'm boycotting Tom Cruise because ... nevermind. Glad that you're back.

Leia said...

You should join a game show, Cap'n.

LOL on the missing car... you must've been channeling Janeway instead of Picard.;)

as for War of the Worlds... haven't seen it and won't dream of seeing it... we ought to send Tom to the Borg... that might annihilate them.... like a bad virus.

nobody said...

Ahh I hated War of the Worlds, not only was it unrealistic - but... it was very very unrealistic. I mean, they were like the only ones driving a car. And everytime they drove their car, there was a path cut out of the debris for them.

Tom Cruise is annoying. Can't stand him anymore. He was quite good in "Far and Away" though.

MommaK said...

Welcome Back Captian! So glad you had a lovely vacation. I am very anti-Tom as well. He's a royal ass. Sorry you had to endure his drivel.

Enjoy your weekend:)

Hey, which Agatha Christie play did you see? The Mousetrap? Black Coffee?

I found your blog through Mrs. Mogul. I'm the world's biggest Jean Luc Picard fan. So sexy with the shaved head and all...

Dave said...

Hello, Michele sent me. Tom Cruise, isn't he that actor that went totally batsh*t insane?

Karen said...

Hello! Michele sent

Karen said...

....me. (Sorry about that.)

Beanhead said...

Tom Cruise is a loser...sorry you wasted money on his movie.

Now the car thing is a sory to tell for years to come and have a good laugh over, glad you found it and it was not stolen.

Here via Michele's

panthergirl said...

Hey, glad you found your car!! And Bewitched was good??? You're the only person I've heard say that!

Here via michele!

J Anderson said...

More Trek please Cap'n. Michele sent me.

Carol said...

Hi Jean-Luc,
We could use someone playing the Ressikan flute in the Friends of the Friendless marching band.
It is great that your Father and you had a good time together.

kenju said...

Glad you found the car; maybe you should have taken crumbs to drop behind you so you could find your way back....LOL.

Michele sent me.

Nic said...

Welcome back dear Captain! Your posts from the Enterprise were greatly missed. Though you might want to be careful what you say about Tom Cruise. His race of Thetans might overhear and try to attack the Enterprise and turn everyone into mindless drones to do their bidding. Tom Cruise is the puppet master of evil!

Minerva said...

Welcome back Captain, you were missed..
Thank you for the message of support.. I am going to need all the help I can get..
Minerva

Stationery Queen said...

Hi JLP. Sorry you sat through that Cruise flick. I gave up on him decades ago and won't go to see anything he's in. :-)

Glad you're back!

Shelley said...

YAY!!!! You're back!!!! Hated War of the Worlds as well!!!

Jo Jo The Monkeyboy's Ghost said...

Dude, where's my car?

Dude, where's my banana!it?

Ha ha, get it?

puremood said...

Welcome back!!

Sounds like a nice time! I'm not a fan of ole Tom, either... don't see anything else with him in it! ;)

Jean-Luc Picard said...

You're all right about Tom Cruise. I should have known better.

Panthergirl, Will Ferrel is the only person that spoils 'Bewitched'. He is awful.

Nic, the Thetans may well be a danger.

Minerva, when you need help, I'm here.

Xtessa, it would be a bad thing sending Tom to the Borg. We don't want them turning into an army of Scientologists.

Princess Leia, I've always wanted to be in a gameshow.

Susan said...

I just told my husband about you loosing your car in Plymouth. He said you should not have left the cloaking device on!
Seriously one reason why I don't/can't drive is my seriously bad sense of direction - I mean I get lost in shops, and as for trying to find the car in a carpark - thank goodness for hubby!
love Susan
