OH SHITTING HELL. My massive review post just deleted itself. *WOE*

ANYWAY, *pointed look at LiveJournal* yesterday was HARRYTIME, AKA Another Theatre Pigrimage Of Doom... Harry Lloyd in The Sea, people. Good times.

I am leaving you all. It is sad.

Kate Rusby. She is lovely.


EDIT: Hah! How could I forget? Series 2 is also the series with Marissa's Hilarious Lesbian Dabblings.

Feeling slightly ambivalent about heading back to Yorkland on Sunday, really. On one hand, everyone has abandoned The Port so there's no one to go out with, plus it's, y'know, Southport. On the other, I've got so much reading to do this term, plus the Italian exam which I have to pass or I get kicked out. And considering how close I was to exhaustion (melodramatic, moi?) at the end of last term, I just hope I can keep up the energy and try to do my assignments at a time which is not the night before they're due.

There's been some crazy nights with some of my favourite people this holiday, so I think I've danced and sweated whatever the hell my problem's been these past few months out of the system, touch wood. Unfortunately, I have ZERO funds, so the dancing in public shall have to be put on hold. Pity the population of York that they shall be denied this fine spectacle.

Also, because I shall soon be deprived of Jo's laptop, and thus PSP7, protect your retinas as I present...

Yet more dodgy icons! )

A few reasons why I might have ZERO funds...

1x Friday Night Lights, DVD
1x Monty Python And The Holy Grail, DVD
1x Little Miss Sunshine, DVD
1x High Society, DVD
1x United 93, DVD

Today, I spent over an hour scouring The Port for a 2-Disc DVD of Master & Commander. It was not to be found.

However, I did purchase:
1x "Master & Commander" by Patrick O'Brian, novel
1x "Our Earthly Pleasures" by Maximo Park, CD
1x "Because Of The Times" by Kings Of Leon, CD
1x Brick, DVD

I'm still pissed off, though.

Yesterday I saw a play called Mad Forest, and it completely blew me away. It was about the Romanian Revolution of 1989, its aftermath, and the effects on two families.

Cut for gushing )

Anyway, I came out feeling amazingly ignorant about.. everything, so I did some very reliable 'research' on Wikipedia. If anyone's interested, here's the link:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romanian_revolution

Then we went to Ask, num num. One of these days I'll get some pictures up, because the place has to be seen to be believed. This was followed by another evening trip to Borders. I love that shop more than words. Anyway, my loan took another hit as I purchased:
1x Tristan & Isolde, DVD
1x Maragarita And The Master, Mikhail Bulgakov, Novel
1x The Map Of Love, Ahdaf Soueif, Novel

I really do have issues. Anyway, I started the Bulgakov, did the first chapter. It's completely amazing, but I started feeling really really guilty about not having finished Portrait of A Lady, so I manfully set it aside.

So, having returned home, we got stuck into Tristan & Isolde. I wasn't realy expecting great things, but I ended up enjoying it. Mainly because of Rufus Sewell. James Franco isn't the best actor, and his accent wasn't great, and the posters I'd seen had led me to belive that his hair would be better than it was. Anyway, Sophia Myles was fine, and the scenery was fucking breathtaking. *is wistful for Connemara*

Anyway, we paused the film at about 11.40, and pranced outside to see the lunar eclipse. I've never seen anything like that before. The moon was red. Anyway, we were all wrapped in blankets/ cloaks/ coats tied like Batman, and we were all feeling pretty pagan, so we basically danced around on the grass until it ws too cold to stay outside anymore.

Cut for paganism )

Apparently it was the best lunar eclipse for ten years.

Sophie is a retard because she persists on spending money she hasn't got on frivolous things like seeing West End shows.

Okay, so the prospect of seeing Les Mis was exciting enough on its own, until Emma ran squawking into my room yesterday and told me that Philip Quast was currently playing Juan Peron in Evita. That would be the same Philip Quast who was the sexiest Javert of all time. The man with the hands.

Cut for evidence )

Yes, I know he's old enough to be my father. No, I don't care. The hands, dammit!

Anyway, we decided that since we were seeing the matinee of Les Mis, it made perfect sense to see the 7.30 showing of Evita on the same day. I am now very very poor indeed.

Another reason for me to be very excited indeed:
“Philip Quast’s full-voiced, mightily powerful Peron”
Variety.com
Oh my.

I really do love Borders. At home, the bookshops don't stay open until 10 selling coffee. Anyway, last night, in a moment of weakness, I decided to succumb to the 3 for 2 offer. It wasn't my fault. It was flaunting itself like a cheap hussy, with stickers and everything.

I really haven't been reading as much as I usually do, which makes me feel guilty and unintelligent, so I'm going the whole hog. Thus, a reading list to alleviate said guilt.

A List Of Guilty Books )

And yes, I totally ripped off half of these from Gilmore Girls.

Today's date is a palindrome. This makes me happy. Balance, symmetry, harmony, whatever...
Eurgh, although it does also make me think of Juan Wilson, Race Moose, AKA No-Neck, AKA The Worst Maths Teacher Evah. His birthday/ hatching was a palindrome, as he told us often. A dark sun must have risen that day.

In other news, I totally bought the 300 graphic novel. It set me back 20 of my English pounds, but it was completely worth it. It is kick-arse, to say the least. And might I add how very much I am looking forward to seeing Gerard Butler, Daisy Wenham and Rodrigo Santoro (Sexy Carl from Love Actually) in various states of undress with sweaty, gleaming bodies. March, baby! That's next month!
