and, what i was going to do before villagephotos screwed me over...

courtesy of naomi, thanks to an utterly hysterical mental image had at some point last night - in fact, here's the snippet of conversaton:

me:
*gets mental image of lorne singing "if you're good to mama". aw-face*
me:
and, yes, in gold lame...
her:
aww! awwwwwwwwwww!
me:
told ya...
her:
*bounces. quite literally*
her:
awwwww!
me:
right. your latest photoshop challenge, should you choose to accept it...
her:
*giggles a lot*
her:
good as done, milady. although how i'm supposed to get something lorne-shaped into a mama-shaped dress...

and, for your viewing pleasure, i present... the finished product... giggle at will :)



*giggles*

well, spring semester has beguneth. and as usual, the bus-to-get-everyone-to-uni-for-9.00am was completely stuffed to the gills twice before it got to my stop. luckily, seeing as i got there at 9.15, the lecture didn't actually start til 9.30.

critical theory 2 is no way to start a week, but at least the lecturer is interesting.

and i'm running out again in 1 hour and 45 minutes to go to my picturing books lecture (basically, it's book into film...) which is taking place in a Real Lecture Theatre, as opposed to a room with lots of tables... (to be more specific, it's taking place in the Real Lecture Theatre,,,)

that's about it. not very interesting, and for that, i apologise...

right. now i'm back off to uni, but i have lots of things scanned, and later there shall be:

1) a link to the photos from new year's eve. (PS: derek - where're the sodding hallowe'en photos??)

2) a new layour :) if only because, by march 15th, this one'll be depressing...

well, all the rumours about david brottman being an ogre turned out to be slightly overstated... although as it's only the first session and nobody's pissed him off yet, it's hardly the best time to judge. david brottman - the American Lecturer. there's something so incredibly bizarre about american people using the word 'trousers'. it just sounds wrong. or maybe i watch too much US television.

anyway, the module is very interesting, even if i am going to need a bionic hand by the end of it. soooo many nooootes...

nevertheless, we get to learn about film jargon and stuff, so it should be good. and, hurrah, because i've seen at least one of the movies already (francis ford copolla's "bram stoker's dracula", with gary oldman and winona ryder and keanu reeves). mind you, everyone else seems to have seen "blade runner" except me. however, i feel much less arghish about not seeing LOTR, because the lecturer hasn't either ;) this is going to be fun, i can tell...

that's about it. oh, and hurrah for my being able to decipher american spellings. we had a "labor" and many copious zeds where there should have been esses. next challenge is to watch the person next to me and see if they copy blindly, thus proving my point about half the group being illiterate..
