2. Completed Pillars of the Earth at last. Was a good read, but heavy. Historical fiction generally always is. Because the author is trying so hard to cram in and show off ALL of the research they've done heh, least that's the impression I get. The book has strong (but not perfect, thank God) female characters and that might explain why it made it to Oprah's Book club. One of the younger characters, Jonathan, is supposed to be notable for his extraordinary height. No points for guessing who I visualized for that role heh.
3. I hate the news. 16-yr olds getting knifed, 17-yr olds tied to trees and burnt alive, eight month old babies getting shaken to their deaths, 84-yr old war veterans driven to attempting suicide. *winces* My life is a walk in the clouds in comparison so.. I've decided to stop whining and start living whatever years I've got left on this planet to the fullest, before someone takes my sorry arse out of this world as well.
4. Feel a bit like Cousin Kyle saying this (and tell me if you get this reference ;-P) - has anyone seen Tom Felton in the new Harry Potter movie preview yet? The bangs are gone, bugger, but he's still cute. And this is a big movie for Malfoy. Awesome. Looking forward to it.
5. To my dearest friend VP... you know I love you sweetheart. No matter what happens, I'm still going to be right here, continuing to represent our little no-wank no-hate clique on LJ. And you know I'll wait patiently for you to come back. So please hurry okay? *hugs*
