the friday night that was.
a stomach filled with good (and copious amounts of) chinese from the excellent
restaurant 2 mins down the road, 2 sofas, a bottle of rose' and a bottle of
white, m&m's and the telly (with tv license paid)- my working class flat
mates' social style is influencing my friday night activities !
sex and the city-penultimate
i thrive on anticipation. that's why i haven't joined the rest of the world in
downloading the series finale and getting over with it. the day before a
farewell is always the sweetest and today's episode was really ... shit how do i
say this without sounding like a sap... fabulous. i loved the scene where she
sees the eiffel tower from her hotel room and squeeks as well as when she
sees the 4 women in the Parisian cafe and misses her friends, i love Big's
tactic at getting Carrie's friends to help him out, i so relate to omens
like the carrie necklace etc. even though i think the Russian guy's not a bad
dude, i'd still prefer to root for the underdog- the bastard with charm, he
really could be Carrie's soulmate. as of today, i still do not know how
the season ends, so please- no spoilers till next friday, when channel 4 runs a
farewell special AND the season finale.
an ideal husband
got my sister to dig up an old tape of the multi stellar period drama starring
Dermott Mulroney, Cate Blanchett, Minnie Driver and Julliane Moore. if i'm
correct it was based on a play written by oscar wilde. cool british-romance-drama-comedy
movie- which again beats reading the book. came away with catch lines like
'once you start loving yourself,
you discover the greatest love of your life
and 'i'm only serious on
the first tuesday of the month between 1 and 3 in the afternoon'.
i think malaysians are special
in sense we're equally inclined to both British and American comedy senses.
pretty standard episode tonight. no appearences by timmy the retard but guest
"starred" chef's parents again- "i'll give you threefitty"
Will & Grace
not too big a fan, but its good filler for good stuff like SATC and southpark.
Some late Sex show-
can't remember the name...
Wasn't a ham tai but one of those documentary type thingies bout
sex-related stuff. pretty interesting- this segment showed footage from the
aussie Sexpo with two guys who made funny stuff using their (real) penises.
incredible. they made an eiffel tower, a hamburger and did a 360. if you really
want to know what i mean... urm.- either catch the show one day or i'll draw
what it looked like...
News at Midnight
Some 70 year old woman in Devon murdered her husband and lied to the police
saying burgalars did it, later confessed to her son. she was sentenced to 2
years in prison for manslaughter- looked like any other sweet old grandmother...
The Madrid bombings. was not too disturbed by it the first time i read about it
on yahoo news- thinking it was a train accident. but after reading more about
the death toll and the fact that it happened during rush hour etc... it's pretty
shocking. i watched a peaceful protest of 6 million (or so) mourners in Madrid
tonight, making up a fifth of Spain's population, walk the streets and it was
really poignant. two extremes- humanity coming together and humanity destroyed
by hate. how many songs does U2 and Bono have to write for things to change ?
i wonder if air fares are gonna be cheaper for my parents to fly down now...
either way. one moment of silence for the people who died on the trains- on
their way to work, on their way home to loved ones, on their way to the friday
they never had.
