|Urgent times call for desperate measures

Why are you regular lj-ers not updating?!! It's been a weekend (which I will give you, is slow) but two days now and no lj activity to entertain the worker. Bad lj-ers! Bad! |
Look what you've made me do, update my own lj!
So what have I've been up to since the gazillion of years since I've last updated?
Well, lots. Holidays, Christmas, NY all that. Though NY was a complete wash-out this year, in fact when hasn't it been a majoy come-down? Mock exams in college in January, and today handing in an essay! They are very strict with word limits so it's only 2000 and you MUST not go over the limit or you'll be penalised, so it's been quite tricky fitting everything in. Can't wait to get it off my hands really and then is just classes and lectures until the June exams, which at the moment I'm quite looking forward to.
Apart from law and work, I haven't been up to anything extraordinarly exciting. I've been getting more sleep and more weekends to myself and watching the occasional movie, though the ones I was planning to watch: 4 weeks, Charlie Wilson, Brick Lane I haven't made it to yet and others are coming on my list, including the Coen Brothers obviously (which incidentally I've had a long dream about, wonder if the dream will coincide with the movie!). I'm quite pleased about actually having movies on a list to see at the cinema as last year has been an incredibly bad year for cinematic expectation and delivery.
Yesterday, I've watched The Prestige in the Magdalen Auditorium, pretty entertaining if quite wacky and a bit over-the-top and cinematography quite bad. It had David Bowie looking quite bloated playing a mad scientist. And the woman with pouty lips, the more movies I see her in, the more I agree with a comment my dad made about her only ability being to pout in a disapproving/dispapointed (sexual?) manner. Scarlett Johansson. Hah, her name is Scarlett. Yes.
Anyway, enough from me for now. Don't want to spoil you too much. Arivederci. x
