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. :)
