So let's see.Thursday
roomie, friend, and I went to see Changeling
, which I think I'll just call right now as at least
nominated for Best Picture, with an Oscar for Angelina Jolie for Best Actress and a nod to John Malkovich for Best Supporting Actor (not really deserved -- not because he was bad, just because it wasn't a challenging performance). In a perfect world, Jeffrey Donovan and Jason Butler Harner will get nominations. (In a truly perfect world, so would Eddie Alderson
, who's starting his career off right
. Holy hell.)
Thursday I also came down with a cold over the course of the day.
Then on Friday
I finished a ten-page paper on The Blair Witch Project
and the way its cinematography interacts with Laura Mulvey's theory of the narrative cinematic male gaze, three hours before deadline and with enough material that I could have written another five pages at least. It is a kickass
Friday my cold got better, mostly; I don't know how that happened but I sure as hell am not complaining.
Friday, roomie and I also started marathoning the last two-thirds of SPN season 3. We made it almost
to the end -- but when we hit 4 AM and we still had two episodes to go, we called it quits.
Instead, we finished those two episodes today (tangent: I just don't like the last few episodes of s3 as much as the rest of the season. I mean, s3 has some fantastic
eps, and the last few just don't measure up, I feel) and watched the first few minutes of 4.01. (We made plans to get in touch with each other on IM and watch the rest of s4 that we currently have handy, which I think is up to 4.05.) Then we went out for crepes, and now roomie is winging -- well, rolling -- her way back home with her mom, leaving me the room to myself until I leave on the 17th. As ever, I feel vaguely like I ought to be tracking down some attractive boy or other and taking advantage of the empty room, but instead I'm probably just going to spend the next few days watching movies, writing, vidding, and possibly doing some thrift-storing with a friend.
And roomie's mom is one of those generous moms who will not only buy you lunch, but give you a freaking ginormous basket of organic cheese, crackers, fruit, and chocolate, with a few bottles of HonesTea to help it all go down, so I'll be well fed, too.
Mmmm. *stretches* Life is pretty decent.
Unrelated to anything question: A friend has recently started a blog
on Blogspot, and I've been thinking about following her example. There's a way to publish entries simultaneously on LJ and Blogger, right? Or am I nuts?
