This is obviously the icon I should've found before I made the trivia night post. I want to add 'Scumbag College' to my list of schools (like how some people have Hogwarts in theirs). Maybe later. XD

LJ, for some reason, is acting up terribly. The update page didn't load the first time, and now it's just the bare essentials with no formatting. Guess the effects of Strikeout '07 are still in force. ;p

Not a lot to report presently. It's very strange to be in study week and not have any exams to study for. I'm mainly modifying my thesis proposal at the moment, figuring out what feedback from my peers is worth utilizing. Rick seems to think I'll finish the semester with a 6 (and certainly, my methodology essay and annotated bibliography had excellent results), though I'm not going to take his word as gospel. My proposal is worth 50% and I'm not going to bank on it being a masterpiece with no errors whatsoever.

I went to Tom's talk the other day with Libby, Daniel and Michael. He talked about the father/son relationship in the late republic/early empire, and it was all very interesting. I'm still rather disappointed that I missed out on an earlier postgrad talk about Revelation, but in light of the past few weeks, I just wasn't able to get there.

REG was on the First Tuesday Book Club last night (I am still steadfastly lamenting that I couldn't go down to Sydney and see him at the Writer's Festival- I was giving my thesis proposal presentation at the time. ;p), where he discussed his favourite book: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Who would've thought of that as his favourite book? It was a brilliant discussion. If/when he directs another movie, he needs to come down here again. REG in Australia = Good Thing.

And now, back to work.

Current Mood: working working
Current Music: The Cure- All Cats Are Grey

The post before this totally reminded me to
a) watch the last two episodes of Hotel Babylon
b) link to this

good luck with the proposal!

I might be the only one, but I honestly think that the older Dexter gets, the better he looks. That said, I see that picture and raise you a Kylie Minogue video where he plays her boyfriend. Man, he is hot there. It reminds me a bit of Alan Rickman in the Texas video.

I sigh like a high school girl at DF taking his sunglasses off like five billion times, and reluctantly fold.

Coincidence: Alan Rickman was, in fact, Dexter Fletcher's best man at his wedding. I only know this because of this fansite, I swear.


I might be the only one, but I honestly think that the older Dexter gets, the better he looks.

I actually agree with you-- I don't find him at all fanciable in, say, Press Gang. I think it's because he looks so much younger than he is that it just kind of evens out. For instance, I thought he was 18 in Press Gang but turns out he was, like, 23 or something. And Tom Hanks thought he was 27ish when he was in fact 33ish.

That link you gave was broken but I still managed to find it.

Yeah, I noticed Dex has a bit of thing for hugging his mates. Or dancing with them, as he is with Jason there. And with this lovely lady. Somehow, that he can dance just makes him even more awesome. And look at the hair. Guh.

Aw, really? Weird, it works whenever I click on it. Huh.
