The weekend was full, but nice, except that H. (the BF) was ill. I had to write a few application letters, and have been decluttering, mostly papers. Saturday night I watched From hell, which proved that a film with Johnny Depp and a host of great British actors can still be shite. On Sunday night I went to see a comic play with my mum and we had a great time. We told each other we should really do this more often. We'll see.

Monday night the BBC showed The conversation and of course I had to watch it.

This was the third or fourth time for me, and while I still find it a great film, I think I'm done with it now. A bit odd, because usually when I love a film I can watch it over and over again, but in this case the element of suspense is too important, I guess. When you've seen it and know what's going to happen, it loses a lot of its interest. But perhaps that's just the way I feel because it lasted until 3 a.m. and by 2:30 I had already become very sleepy and wanted the film to end.

This morning I woke up to a white world. Ugh! Snow is nice for the Christmas holidays and that's about it, IMO. Fortunately in the afternoon most of it had gone, but more is expected. Hrm. Some good news: I received the reintegration plan today, so tomorrow I'll phone up my case manager (if he is in...) to make an appointment, or maybe I can just drop it off.

I also made a culinary discovery. Last year I had bought a pack of instant miso soup from the organic shop, as I had heard that it is a healthy snack and very suitable for hypoglycaemics, due to its protein content. After trying 3 times I decided that I Did Not Care for miso soup. I still had 9 one-cup-packets left, and this afternoon when I felt peckish I tried it again, but this time I added some dried bruschetta which I had acquired recently. And it tasted really good! I might even buy the miso soup again. :D

And over the past few days I have tried to catch up with lj, but people have been posting like mad, so I'm not quite up to date yet... well, what else is new.

Current Mood: okayokay
Current Music: Plain gold ring - Nina Simone

Strangely, I liked From Hell. But I'm capable to put up with mediocre films as long as they are set in the Victorian era, so...

I was very disappointed by it. But maybe I just wasn't in the right mood, that sometimes happens.

No, in fact your assessment is accurate, the script was very poor, to my view.

I have not been diagnosed, but I think I do. I certainly have to be careful with sugar. When I eat an apple, 20 minutes later I feel so hungry I think I'm going to faint. I love love love milk chocolate though, and I refuse to quit eating that, but I try to be moderate. Hence the miso soup. :) My packet says it contains sea salt, but the soup tastes very bland without the bruschetta.

Johnny Depp doesn't need to act, Being is enough. ;D

Yes, keeping up with lj is hard work. How people with jobs do it is beyond me. I saw you had posted a reply to my interests question, thanks! I'll read it tomorrow, I'm off to bed now.

Hear, hear! He should use line that for his portfolio.
It seldom occurs I don't know a specific film, but to my humble regret this is one of those moments. Hrm. Gene Hackman + suspense... should be fun!

But in that case I would demand royalties. ;)

It is a film that far too few people have seen. It is one of Gene Hackman's best, maybe THE best.

Agree, that was awful, I never made it through the first 20-30 minutes.

Hope you're doing well. *waves*

The TV guide called it "fascinating" and when I saw all those well-known British actors I thought it had to be good, but it just wasn't.

I'm fine. *waves back*
And how are you? David's birthday was on the 23rd, you were going to quit smoking then, I believe? And, did you? Can I beam proudly? :)
heartofdavidheartofdavid on March 1st, 2005 02:55 pm (UTC)
You can beam, put not that proudly. I've had my backslide moments. One day without, then I have a couple. But I'm not giving up. Today is no-smokes so far, I'm keeping at it.

Naked Squirrel will prevail!

Naked Squirrel will prevail!

I am sure of it! And I am proud of you!

When I stopped smoking, the first thing I noticed was that I slept much better. Before, falling asleep would take me forever. Maybe you will start sleeping better, too! :)
