Ben and I spent part of our afternoon doing this:

Harry Potter 7 ticket

My (brief) thoughts below. Spoilers will (probably) abound, so if you don't want to risk it then don't read on...

Spoilers! )

Finally, Ben is a great husband because he noticed when I started crying and gave me a tissue :) It was even clean! ;)

Just to let you all know, that the funeral directors sent Phil a total of how much money was donated in mum's name to Macmillan nurses. The final total was £385. There was also £70 given to Phil and I in cash that we will be forwarding to Macmillan in mum's name shortly. That means that £455 of good for Macmillan Nurses, and the people who use them, has come from this, and that is something that offers some comfort for me. Thank you to everyone who donated.

ION I saw Toy Story 3 over the weekend and it was awesome and lovely and beautiful and I would see it again even if I did spend a good deal of time in tears. Go see it!

On Friday there was some interesting post and for a change it was all for me! Usually all the postie brings me is bills and bank statements, but today I got a much better haul, which inserted some excitement my usually predictable days.





First up was the TV Licence (excellent value for money IMO). Ok, so it's not very exciting, but it was part of my haul, so I included it for completeness' sake. What that TV Licence does mean is that it is coming up for four years since we moved in to our flat and had a "putting Ikea furniture together and watching Eurovision" party (pics of that here, here and here). It really doesn't seem like that long. It's also worth saying that there is nowhere near that much space in our flat any more!



Next up was my Graze Box, which was supposed to arrive on Thursday, but got stuck in the post somewhere and actually turned up on Friday instead. It was yummy - especially the fresh apple, which appeared not to have suffered from being in the post an extra day :) If you want a free first box and half price second box (you can easily cancel after the free one has turned up), then go to graze.com and enter the following code: QV67PBDC.



Last in the stack of post, a set of 15 War films given away in editions of the Daily Mail a month or so ago. Huge thanks to [livejournal.com profile] no1typo, who sullied her bank account and house by buying the paper and sending off for the films. They arrived on Friday, with the rest of my exciting post and I don't own most of them. I'm looking forward to settling down and watching them over the next few weeks :)



Finally for this post, I took the above today of my favourite bear Max posing with [livejournal.com profile] benc's eee 900A. I've made an icon out of it :) All of the pictures are here. Sometimes I think I have too much time on my hands ;)

EDIT: On the theme of geekiness, my new laptop should hopefully be showing up on Tuesday. If you've not voted in my name poll, I'd appreciate it if you would :)

I've recently been reading my brand new copy of When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit (my old one, that I had had since I was 8 or so, fell apart from being read rather a lot). I got my new copy through the [livejournal.com profile] lj_uk Christmas Wishlist exchange - it's this edition (2008). According to Barnes and Noble (and various other sites) this book is recommended for 8-12 year olds. I'd agree with that, seems like a good age to read it for the first time.

My edition has a foreword called "Why You'll Love This Book" by Michael Morpurgo, Children's Laureate from 2003-2005. Bear in mind, when reading what comes next that this book is recommended for ages 8-12. His style in writing the foreword suggests that he is talking to these young readers.

The fifth paragraph starts:
"When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, published forty years ago, speaks to us of a time most of us know only through books of history and fiction, through archive film, as well as through movies. It is from The Diary of Anne Frank to I am David and Schindler's List and The Pianist that most of us have our haunting but distant insights into the lives of those who had experienced the terrors and horrors of Nazi persecution and extermination..."

I understand that 8-12 year olds may well have read the former two (The Diary of Anne Frank and I am David) - I know I had read at least one of those at that age (Anne Frank), having both a taste for the historical and something of a fascination with all things WWII (and Holocaust - I think I was a rather odd child). However, I highly doubt they have seen the latter (Schindler's List and The Pianist), not least because they're both rated 15. Don't get me wrong, they're both right up there as favourite films, I think they're amazing. But they're definitely not for children of the age the book is primarily aimed at.

I dunno. That part of the foreword just felt rather odd. Surely, given the writer's status as a former Children's Laureate, he would be aware of what a child of that age has been exposed to, and what they haven't?

I finally got round to photographing and uploading more pictures from "From Vision to Reality", as well as rephotographing those that were already there so they are better quality. They are here for those who want to look :) I've also made a new LJ icon.

ION: I went to see The Dark Knight this evening at Ashford. Twas good. Won't say any more though in case of spoilers.

Look what the BBC did! They've made a trailer for their showing of "War of the Worlds", starring Tom Cruise with the irritating Dakota Fanning screaming her way through. My problem with it is that they have taken the awesome music of Jeff Wayne's "The War of the Worlds" and used it to advertise this travesty.

I dispair :(

I saw a film on one of the terristrial channels some years ago, and I can only remember the barest facts about it. Ben looks at me like I'm completely insane when I try and describe what I can remember of the film. I'm hoping that someone who reads this can help. Or maybe confirm Ben's suggestion that I'm insane ;)

The film was about a guy who had died and was in ?purgatory (possibly not the right word). He had a review of his life, which happened in a sort of private cinema (his life events were shown as on film) and his life was shown to be generally wasted. While he was there he met (or re-met) a woman he was attracted to. Her life was shown to be generally good. At the end, they're put on busses to go on to the next stage - his is destined to go back to earth so he can try again and she to go on to heaven. He breaks off his bus and jumps on hers. The authorities decide to let him go on with her. Possibly because they were so touched by the love story ;)

Anyway, please help. Either I'm insane, I have a great imagination or it is a real film I really saw. In which case, please tell me it's real and if possible what it is called?

Thanks :)

I've just been watching The Day After Tomorrow on 4, and realised how much easier life would be if it had an obvious soundtrack. Romantic movements when you meet someone you should fall in love with, big dramatic surges when something exciting happens, ominous music when you're in a bad situation, or meet a dodgy character - because of the music you would know what to do in every possible life situation! Also, it'd be really cool :D

In other news, I've been very busy this week, doing something every day (including seeing [livejournal.com profile] bethanthepurple twice! hello bethan!). It makes me aware that while I am doing much better, I'm still not there yet - being out for two hours or over makes me so tired I just have to come home and crash. At least I'm handling getting out every day, and that is definite progress.

I've also been watching a lot of dvds, as mum got me a dvd service subscription for Christmas. It's quite cool. I've seen films I've wanted to see but haven't got around to (Hairspray, Letters from Iwo Jima) and ones that I haven't seen for ages (Regeneration, Carry on Teacher), and series that I was curious about but couldn't afford the box sets of (House). The House is being staggered - one part of a series to every two films in my list on average, because otherwise its formula House formula ) annoys the hell out of me. In small doses it's fun though. Do any of you have any film/tv series recommendations to add to my list? :)

I'm looking forward to this weekend. Liz and Si's housewarming. Get to see lots of people I haven't for a while. Should be fun :)

Sweeney Todd was excellent. When it comes out on DVD I shall have to get it again. Interestingly, the death that made me cringe the most and hide behind my hands for was the one I didn't see coming until right before it happened. I would say go see it - so long as you're not bothered by blood (fake or otherwise) or would be uncomfortable with the fact it was mostly sung. I really enjoyed it.

Had dinner in Frankie and Bennies after, which almost didn't happen as the cash machines building at the complex had been the scene of a bulldozer cashpoint robbery - the building it was in was virtually demolished on the side where the machines used to be and surrounded by police tape. A word of warning to anyone going to the cinema at Ashford anytime soon - take plenty of money, for you won't be able to withdraw any while you are there! (Wish I'd known that! :})

Finally, a quick reminder: I'm going to the Tuesday 1:50pm showing of St Trinians and I'm willing to take other people - let me know if you want to go :)

Thanks to those who expressed their opinion earlier :) I'm beginning to feel a bit better about it, not quite so mortified.

I've decided to go see St Trinian's at Ashford on Tuesday, the 13:50 showing. As it's a tuesday, tickets are £4.40 each. As I'm going, I'm happy to take any Canterbunnies who are free then and want to go to a value of 3 or 4 if you want to squish together ;) Just comment below. I'll probably be leaving at 13:15.

Tonight I'm off to see Sweeney Todd. Hurrah. I declare this Cinema Week!

As I'm going, I'm happy to take any Canterbunnies who are free then and want to go to a value of 3 or 4 if you want to squish together ;) Just comment below. I'll probably be leaving at 13:15.

Tonight I'm off to see Sweeney Todd. Hurrah. I declare this Cinema Week!

I must be feeling better because today I was feeling well enough to mess with people's heads.

Yesterday we got a letter from NPower saying that if we took our Gas supply as well as our Electricity from them then we could have an £80 discount per year from them. This was actually something of a problem, given that we do not have a Gas feed - we are purely Electricity only. It struck me as unfair that because our flat is rather backward we don't get an £80 discount on our fuel bill.

So today, because I was feeling rather troublesome I called NPower and spoke to one of their Customer Representatives (who even appeared to be in a call centre in this country).

I explained to him the problem and promised him that if we were to have a gas supply then we would get our supply from them. His response was something along the lines of "you what?!"

I argued my case to the best of my ability but in the end had to settle for NPower taking us off their dual fuel mailing list and sending us out details of some boiler guarentee thing which gets us £20 off per year. Ah well. It was worth it just to mess with someone's head ;) Bwhahahaa.

ION: Sky appear to have sorted their Heath Ledger tribute with 10 Things I Hate About You appearing magically on Sky Anytime today with a description saying practically that.

Via Respectful Insolence, "The downfall of HD-DVD". Very funny, even if you haven't actually seen Downfall (and if you haven't, you should :P)



In other news, Book 2/52, The Nazis, A Warning from History )

One of my Christmas presents is a Blockbuster movie rental account thingy. I'm looking for stuff to add to my rent list, so I am calling upon you, my friends list, for your collective knowledge and opinions :)

If you could share with me your recommendations for stuff to add - I'm open to trying most genres and stuff :) Let me know what your favourites are (and maybe why?) or any you have seen recently that you really enjoyed and would recommend, or a film that is to you like a comfort blanket to go back to again and again or whatever :)

Tomorrow I am off to town to finish my Christmas shopping and meet [livejournal.com profile] greenfurrymoose. Should be nice :)

A successful day today I think, despite a lack of sleep caused by late night and early morning. Or rather, early morning and early morning ;)

Ben and I went to town as I had a need for some new slippers and it seemed like a most excellent time to spend our Christmas vouchers. I would say "and our Christmas money", but we spent that on a new TV (19" w/s Samsung LCD of joy and happiness) - no more flicker for us! :D

Ben came back with several CDs he's been joyfully ripping all afternoon and I got a book (The Children's War: The Second World War Through the Eyes of the Children of Britain) and a DVD (The Pianist), which I sat and watched this afternoon while ben ripped his CDs.

It was seriously intense. More intense, uncomfortable and in some ways visceral and graphic than Schindler's List which is a film in a similar vein (and one of my all time favourite films). It was an amazing film of an amazing story - that of Władysław Szpilman, a Jewish concert Pianist who lived in Warsaw, eventually escaped the Ghetto after a very narrow shave and lost his whole family to Treblinka.

I highly recommend seeing this film, it's a definate must see. Just don't expect it to be pleasant viewing.

This Poll has been brought on by watching the remastered Episode IV on Sky Movies last night. They're showing all six at the rate of one a week starting with the "Old" Trilogy and moving on to the "New".

Anyway, I just wanted the opinions of my flist on a few minor matters of Star Wars...

If you have stuff to say, stick it in a comment at the bottom :)

To those of you on my flist who were comparing POTC2/3 and ESB/ROTJ and their characters (I'm looking at you, [livejournal.com profile] lisaofdoom, right now), my favourite movie mag, Empire has produced just such a feature in this months issue.

Here is is, reproduced by my own fair hands.

If Pirates 2 was the Empire Strikes Back of the trilogy (love triangle, father issues, erm, sword fights), that would make part three At World's End, Return of the Jedi. Based on plot points Empire has learned about the film, this - shoehorned into a familiar series - is how Pirates 3 should all pan out. Warning: Here be (possible) spoilers (and Ewoks) )
