Bumper Blog Post!

Nearly two weeks without a blog, which is very possibly a record for me.

With Pictures, Videos and Questionnaires! That's right!
First off, here's some music to listen to, as you enjoy the rest of this gorgeous blogpost

Let's move on to my desktop background. As promised, when I change it, I show you, so here it is

That right there is some biscuit dough. This was the good batch, as opposed to the failure that was my attempt to make Popping Candy Biscuits. Heston Blumenthal can do it, why can't I? Answers in a postcard, please, PO Box 12BP

In Other news, my room is Clean! Yes, I know, it's stunning.
From this:

And my ever growing Can Army has reached Dazzling new heights;

Fantastic Mr Fox?

Hey all
Just watched Fantastic Mr Fox on dvd
Was looking forward to it, cos I love the book, and on the whole it was really funny and there were definately some bits that made me laugh out loud for a long time, but I don't think I'd buy it/make an effort to watch it again
because it really wasn't very true to the book AT ALL. Bar a few characters, they were all pretty much changed or sidelined, and the reason for this was that it had been Americanised to the MAX. Although clearly meant to be set in England due to the 'typical english village' that got burnt by pinecone granades (don't ask), all the main characters, except for Boggis, Bunce and Bean were American. Ok, George Cluney and Meryl Streep might be good actors, but Mr Fox is BRITISH. No, I'm not just being anti-american, yes I know that Roald Dahl lived in America for a long time but still! He's clearly an upperclass british guy. The story was pretty much ENTIRELY changed, and they essentially inserted a war in which loadsa stuff got entirely recked. Also a Wolf. Don't ask why, there is NO REASON FOR IT. They just shoved a loada storylines in to make it last longer and to get about 4 different Morals across to an audience that they obviously thought the average age of would be about 7.
Yes, I liked it. But I think it should have, and could have, been truer to the book, and I don't really understand why the Dahl Estate let it be as massive as it did.

Wednesday, 10 March 2010


Yeah, Yeah, I just did one, but I'm starting a new thing
Everytime I change my desktop background, I'm gonna post you my desktop.
Here it is
5 days
Apologies for the long time without Blog nor Vlog
Worked all weekend, first day at the Library was good, lots of paperwork and shelving books. hopefully once they understand that I've visted the library before and therefore know where the books go, it'll be better :p
Sunday was a nightmare, but only one day left.
Monday, Tuesday and Today I have been ill
You'd think what with that meaning that I have access to the internet all day with nothing else to do, I'd have done lots of blogs, but intead I watched House cos it takes less effort and I don't have to have the laptop actually on my lap.
For those that didn't get that, its so I can get up quickly n not worry bout breaking anything
I love House. It's great
Read all of 'Notes from an Exhibition' again. Great book. It's by Patrick Gale, I recommend it massively.
Blackadder is also getting me through this.
Dunno if I'll be back tomorrow, kinda hope I will cos I'm a little bored of being in Bed. Was feeling better, then... well you don't need to know the details, and although I'm feeling a little better still, not so much.
Ah, who knows

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

The Rocky Horror Picture Show. A fantastic film, musical, soundtrack
If you haven't seen it, I recommend it massively. If you just googled and got a load of people in corsets, you're meant to. Don't let that put you off. It's funny, singalongable, dancetoable and in no way complicated to follow
I've got 2 different soundtracks (Film and 1990 revival cast) and they're very different but equally awesome
I implore you
Go watch Rocky Horror
Wait till mine arrives from Amazon (my old copy broke) and come over and watch it, we'll have a party

Will you watch it? Have you seen it? Did you like it? Tell me!
S'been a while, sorry people
Almost a week in fact
Catch up time
Friday: Went Out, was awesome
Saturday: Went Out: was awesome, had too much to drink spent all of
Sunday: Hungover, quit work, working until the 14th, start new work on Saturday, so two full weekends working
Monday: School
Tuesday: School
Today: School.

Hope you all feel better about me :p
