First line of the day: He squatted at the side of the stream, dipping his hands into the water.
Today's theme: musings on dreams, and the introduction of a key character (Cadog).
Diversions: 10 minutes spent scouring my academic shelves for WATU (Welsh Administrative and Territorial Units), one of those reference books you need maybe once a decade, but then *really* need. But which no-one every reads (it's a list. With some maps).

Skirt of the day: black flouncey

Question of the day: Why do I like Raja Hindustani so much (other than the music. The music is splendid and obviously likable)? But the film: I mean, I really shouldn't. The level of violence towards women is worrying and the hero's uncontrolled temper is scary. And yet I love it dearly.

And yay, our boiler is fixed and no longer leaking and the house is less freezing that it has been. (The two may well, I feel, be connected.)

It's a star-crossed romance -- rich girl meets poor boy, family object. The music is wonderful, and the melodrama goes up to 11. It's somewhat like those 1940s epics with Bette Davies and Mary Astor competing for The Man. Huge fun, but the resolution depends heavily on bullying the women and the hero is rather too easily violent. (Though the heroine stands up to him a fair bit and in the end convinces him of some things, it isn't clear that he ever works out that being aggressive isn't the best solution.)
