This may be of interest to a couple of people on the flist.
Spielberg, Jackson to make Tintin film trilogy.

My whole family are Tintin fans. When my dad was growing up in Holland, he read the Tintin comics, and Maryke and I read them when we were growing up. My Opa even wrote to the writer/artist Herge, mentioned that his youngest son (my uncle) Peter was a fan, and in return got this beautiful drawing of the characters that now hangs in Peter's house.

My sister was buried in her Tintin t-shirt. My God, she would have loved to see these movies. Me, I hope that it matches the comics and the great animated series that I remember watching as a child.

I came to uni for only a few hours today. I put together the critique for the student giving his presentation, spoke to Rick and Roxanne, had lunch with Libby and went home. I could've stayed for class, but I'm glad I didn't. I wouldn't have felt like contributing to discussion.

The visit to the boarding house tonight went well. Ashley and I talked to Ms. Drake for a while, and I think I'll probably get in touch with her at a later time to discuss things further.

In the hazy recesses of my mind earlier today, I remembered that Pirates of the Caribbean 3 is out in a week. I'm not sure if I'll see it on the weekend it opens, but I want to. A little Jack Davenport did no one any harm, after all. :)

Current Mood: chipper chipper

No harm at all! And we'll definitley have to see the Tintin whenever it comes out-- just to see what it is like. In other flippant television news, there are unsubstantiated rumours about June for DW. Keep in touch, yeah?

Huzzah, you did it!

I remembered later this afternoon that At World's End isn't coming out for another week. So that gives us enough time to arrange to see it on the opening weekend. :D

This is very cool news. I like Tintin. I haven't read all of the Tintin comics, but I've read many of them and I really like them.

Tintin! Pirates! I think I'm going to explode!

P.S. Are you ok? Really? You sound much more composed than I could ever be, but I still worry about you... I feel so helpless to offer comfort from so far away, but I suppose there has been no shortage of friends and family on hand.

I am surprisingly calm and composed at the moment. I'm quite disturbed by it, because I'm generally an emotional person and if you'd told me that this was going to happen a month ago, I would have been devestated.

However, I think the reason for my composure is that in retrospect, I kind of expected this. Maryke and I were very different people, and I think if we were closer and more similar in personality/behaviour, I would've taken it much worse because then I couldn't have understood quite as well why she had done it.

Those are my thoughts on the subject, anyway. Don't be too worried about me. I got your text message and that was very much appreciated. :)
