Can you think of a film line you could re-word to include an explanation/mention of livejournal? Here's my sorry attempt:

"Livejournal: What a waste of good suffering...
You opened the link, we came. We have such sights to show you..."

As they say in school - pass it on!! *wink*


Oh, well this update thing is an interesting looking window. I'll expect it to be buggered when I try to put in images and things, but, hey ho. Mustn't be a luddite, must I?

Yesterday was hectic as hell. Four hours sleep, got to college, Psycho wouldn't run in the library on DVD on PowerDVD due to parental controls (EEE!!!), then it wouldn't allow sound on Media Player... Tutor wasn't there, so I was left with a load of 17-21 year olds who are also doing my course stood around looking lost. I asked one of them to go and get the film out on video instead, and asked a staff member if we could book a room with a TV/VCR in it. This we did.

The rest of the class had never seen the Hitchcock original before - only one of them had seen the Gus Van Sant 1998 remake. *cringe* So guess who had to answer sodding questions, explain stuff about cam angles, deliberate ways of increasing tension, bird symbolism, the 'is his mother REALLY dead?' questions before we even reached the denouement in the office at the end... And the lad who didn't even seem to know why he's taking film studies, missed half an hour of the film because he wanted a fag, and only watched it because he wanted to see the 'fit bird get in the shower'. Oh dear.

Either way, I felt like 'teacher', but don't want to impart too much information in case they get lazy on their research lol!!

Walked up to my sister's house, had tea and had to babysit her two kids in the kitchen whilst she had a flute pupil in the living room and her husband had gone off with his drumkit for band practice...

('Joey The Lips' have a gig in The Crown next Thursday I think...)

Walked to work at 9pm, listened to Nick Cave and the new Cure album all night (thankyou vashe!!!), wrote some lyrics to a new song... Had too many ideas and too little time as usual...

The usual.

Today I have slept until 3:30pm - clearly was a bit tired. I am going to attempt a 'tidyathon' on my room for an hour or so before rushing out to work again.

I'm not sure what day it is today, but I have to be in college 9am - 11am on Friday after work, so I ought to stay up tommorrow then sleep in the evening to change my pattern about.

As for the Psycho shinanigans - sounds like someone whose name rhymes with 'dizzy' is going to get an easy qualification ;)

Sounds like you're doing well at college babe, hope the others don't start holding you back though. Don't worry about ending up as the teacher, it's in your breeding!

In my breeding? Don't I sodding know it!!

*peers down nose whilst wearing glasses on the tip*

I won't let them hold me back - but I might have to educate a few of them a little...just enough so that I still get better grades than them anyway;)

I could also add the Troma tagline from 'A Nymphoid Barbarian in Dinosaur Hell' to that... But I wouldn't have to change a thing!!!!!
