I hate it when this happens.
I've been on the lookout for the BBC adaptation of Anthony Trollope's 'He Knew He Was Right' on dvd for a while now. I saw the first two episodes, but missed the rest because of my trip overseas, and I liked what I saw enough to consider buying the dvd if it was out here.

The good news is, it's been released. The bad news is, it's only available as part of a box set of Trollope adaptations, one of which I've already got (Barchester Chronicles, which is fantastic and faithful to the books). Dammit! I suppose I could hang out and see if it gets an individual release, or I could fiddle around with the dvd recorder to change the region and order it from overseas. Hmm. Need to think on this. 'The Way We Live Now' is also in the set and I'm quite curious about it too, since it's one of the lovely Cillian Murphy's earlier roles.

My proposal draft is more or less finished. I sent it to Rick and when I got the feedback earlier today, I fixed up some bits and pieces. It's sitting at 2700 words, which annoys me a little, because I hoped to get to 3000; but I've run out of scholarship and methodology issues to discuss, and I'm within the 10% minimum word limit. Hopefully feedback from my peers will yield something I've missed and need to elaborate on before the final version is handed in on the 14th of next month.

Now I have to worry about talking for half an hour on situating the thesis. I'm still grateful that Roxanne's only allocated 10% for the actual oral presentation, because again and again, I can see myself petering out at ten minutes and asking if anyone has questions. Hopefully I can put together a pretty presentation on Powerpoint that might slow my rapid speaking there a bit.

Current Mood: annoyed annoyed
Current Music: Bach- Concerto for Oboe, Strings and Orchestra in C Minor- Allegro

Hello :D

I tried to comment earlier to ask if it was okay to add you, but lj was with the suckingness and it wasn't showing up any entries - just an error message so I couldn't :( I followed an entry on the hotel_babylon comm, hope you don't mind :D

My journal is also set to non-friend posting, which mightn't have helped either. :/ I've added you back though, so it's fine now. hotel_babylon's a quiet comm, but thanks for creating it anyway. :)
