Agh!
Feeling slightly better re: uni course choices.

Stuff I neglected to mention about my day:

I went and saw Cold Mountain. It was unexpectedly depressing. Granted, I was expecting bloody civil war battles and much confederatesoldierJude Law and Nicole Kidman angst, but the ending....damn. :(

Renee Zellwegger was damn funny though and stole every scene she was in. She deserves an Oscar......the Academy has to be kind and give her one this year. She's waited long enough. :p

Also loved that Jack White was in the film. Go him.

Aaaand, I got Russian Ark on dvd today! :D Watched some of the extras earlier that more or less have ruined my novel. The aristocrat (the heroine in my novel) is actually the Russian poet Pushkin's wife. Ah, well. Going to write story anyway!

Current Mood: thoughtful thoughtful
Current Music: Kylie Minogue- What Do I Have To Do?

Cold Mountain &c.

Granted, not enough battles, but the one battle they DID have was amazing... Shootin' Yankees in a barrel! yA!y And completely agreed about What's-Her-Name... The line that she had right before the big lovey-dovey scene (Number one, close that door, it's freezing, Number TWO, close THAT door, it's freezing, and number THREE, I've been trying to sleep with my fingers shoved in my ears trying not to hear all that sap about who's got a bag of diamonds and who's carrying a TRAY... &c &c &c *GHEE*) kept running through my mind, and I had to recite Latin conjugations to myself for the duration to stop myself from laughing aloud in the theater.

I'm off to keep packing, now, but if you want my rant on why your title for this page is, according to my reasoning, wrong, let me know and I'll try to get something writen up for it after I settle down in Rome.

Re: Cold Mountain &c.

My page title? Ah, I took it from a Latin phrase book...think it's a quote from a classical text (can't remember the author right now). But your rant sounds interesting, so when you have the time, do post it. :)

But they never give Oscars to funny people or funny films, which is a shame, as it's not easy to do good comedy.
