Guess how clueless I can be!A lot? That's right!

Anyway. The third series of Skins has ended as of last week, which I didn't realise until I tried searching for episode 11. Now, I can take that as an indicator of my general cluelessness or as an indicator for my general thoughts about the show.Read more... )

So all in all, doesn't compare to 'Being Human', but was fun all the same. And yes, [livejournal.com profile] jeebus_uc I am capable of having good taste in TV shows, why?

The Grande Day Out was indeed grand. Had chips and the most amazing cappucino ever at the Haagen Dazs place in Leceister square. Mike was very cool and we even bumped into another Nigerian guy (doing charity stuff for NSPCC) and chatted in the worst Igblish this side of the Atlantic. Took him to the National Gallery (he has never been! A horrific thought, no? He just laughed when I told him this, clearly not understanding how devastating that was for a neek like myself) and around Covent Garden area. He seemed intrigued by steampunk, but I thought it would be stupid to ruin a great friendship so soon. Still, I think he'd be awesome as a 'Steam-Eze' - the Igbo science-pirate with a steampunk twist...

For those of you around Central London, you have to check out the free exhibition on Feliks Topolski, just after the Southbank centre square. 'Tis quite amazing.

*On occasion, I stress. I have noticed I tend to be quite mean to Plato - my Classics teacher was an Epicurean fanboy, alright: there was nothing I could do...!

**OK, lol, I'm just being a meanie-head.

This is why I hate going on the tube, lol: Too many distractions!

Went to see 'There Will Be Blood' this afternoon avec Dill. The first two thirds were excellent, and the acting was equally satisfying throughout... the last third was a little, 'mm', with little in the way of clearcut motivation (for me, at least). Still, the climax was worth it, and the music for the last scene was suitably jarring.

I find it amsuing how expenive th 'new writers' courses are (£15-£85). Not interested in the slightest in them, but I took a peek just to see how up and coming local writers find themselves getting supported. Quite impressively, clearly...
