the latest episode

I haven't been spending much time around computers with internet access, being either at home or at work. Which is probably not true. But near enough.
Well I'm sure you're all on the edge of your seats as to whether I did actually get around to enjoying my day last Monday, and the answer is yes, yes I did. Andrew and I went and saw Children of Men, with one free movie ticket. What an awesome movie! Really, I recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it yet. If it's still out. If not, get it on DVD. Anyway, that kept me on the edge of my seat with the suspense and all. It was very real, but a good fictional story. Well made too, with the camerawork and the characters you cared about and all. It was absorbing, and I couldn't look away, and I was freaked out alot and they created this really believable world (which was kinda scary). This is not the best review, but the point I wanted to make was it that it's a good movie. And I think I've done that.
The rest of the week I mostly read alot. I bought two new books with my two book vouchers- Ghostwritten by David Mitchell and One Good Turn by Kate Atkinson. And read them (they were good). Which reminds me, I should probably borrow a new book since I'm in the library now. Alot of bludging last week. Oh, and I made it to Glebe Markets, always fun. This week I have been doing alot of working. Was at the museum today. Sadly I am losing my voice, I have this sore throat which has been going around (when I say 'going around', the only people I know who've had it are my flatmates, so I blame them). Fun when you're trying to teach people. Luckily year 5 kids are much better behaved than year sevens.
So I guess this installment of my life has been less than enthralling for y'all, I will try to have wacky adventures for your entertainment, but in the meantime I'm trying to make money. A foolish aim really, but there it is. in any case I am totally up for fun and excitement, so if anyone has any suggestions (or even book recommendations) they would be very welcome.
Tata for now :)


  1. Ah yes, making money, an aim I have been unsuccessful in pursuing for my whole life...if indeed it was ever an aim I was trying to pursue...

    I like to bludge =)

  2. *sighs* money is good when wanting/needing to buy stuff. I've got a very difficult Secret Santa this time... infamous for her outspokenness that "Everything is stupid"

    I heard that 'Children of Men' isn't that good. Meanwhile, it'll probably be a hire-the-dvd movie for me. Meanwhile, that was one vs. two.
    I wanna see 'The Prestige' anyone? Anyone?

  3. Everyone I've heard from has liked it, so I thjink all up it wins.

    yeah, the whole money vs. bludgin thing is always difficult. I figure work now for bludging later should work.

  4. I dunno about the Prestige. I saw it, and it was interesting, but it had a body count of 7, which was higher than I thought it was going to be, and a mild-through serious maining count of at least 4.

  5. I'm confused by that you mean Angi.
    "a mild-through serious maining count of at least 4"

  6. saw the prestige today.
    you're right ang, somewhat serious but not too violent i think.

  7. I think she meant "maiming" Pun =P...if that's what you're confused about...

  8. but there wasn't really much maiming... okay, I can recall... 2? I'm trying to think of more... nup I can only think of 2, someone will have to refresh me though.
