Um! So... - Vox Audita Perrit, Literra Scripta Manet....
The heard word is lost, the written letter remains...
Um! So...
My NYE: Not a big party animal on NYE (I never am, haha). Watched Graham Norton with a glass of schnapps and then went up Mt Coot-tha later to watch the fireworks. I don't particularly like to set myself goals, but I am resolved to lay a solid groundwork for my PhD this year, and to try and get out of retail work.

I saw The King's Speech and loved it. I wasn't really expecting to like it, but Colin Firth was quite good and carried the film much better than I predicted. I don't think it was a better film than A Single Man, but he probably has a better chance of an Oscar this year (chiefly because he didn't win last year, and because he's playing a historical character). Tremendous supporting cast too, it was fun to pick out all the familiar faces in supporting parts (including Jennifer Ehle- Lizzy and Darcy onscreen together again!).

I went back to work this week and it was ridiculously quiet, except for some large deliveries of stock. Having Tuesday off to do a little bit of research.

Reading Michael Palin's second volume of diaries at the moment, and it is fantastic. MP will always be my favourite Python. I read the first Amelia Peabody book a few months back (Crocodile on the Sandbank), and I think the second book (Curse of the Pharaohs) will be next on my reading list. Would really love to read this too, after reading the review in TIME magazine.
