So, literature oral this morning: I got a Shakespeare extract! Yay! Don't really know how it went, you can never really know. I don't think I made an arse of myself, which is always good. Teacher was too much of a monolith to let me know whether I'd done good or bad. That guy is impressive - and a well of knowledge, too, which doesn't help with the feeling at ease. Would cracking a smile kill him? But oh well. He sure was a good teacher anyway.
Now I have to prepare my prensentations for tomorrow's oral.
On an unrelated note, greenie_breizh
has completely hooked me up on Showtime's latest gay program, The L word
. I again find myself having the hots for the character who sleeps around a lot, how desperate is my case? She's called Shane, and she's... she's got that voice, really. I work a lot on voices, and that voice of hers... Katherine Moennig is the actress's name. Tim also is a cutie, I've added him to my list of guys I wanna snuggle. To go back to Katherine Moennig, I knew I'd seen her somewhere, in that rather bad American mini-series or whatever it was, Young Americans. In which Charlie Hunnam has a role, too (and Ian Somer-thingie, too, I think? Yes, I *will* remember his name some day... some day). It only ever showed in bloody French, so it's really crappy 'cause now, because of Katherine (and her voice), I wanna see it again in English - of course, hearing Charlie's actual voice and accent won't be too horrible either.
That being said, what they're doing with Tina and Bette is quite good as well. They're really cute, and I already liked Laurel Holloman in AtS anyway. (And I hate Jenny.) But yeah, even though they got incredibly lucky with the getting pregnant so quickly, let's just overlook that. Artistic licence. It's really great to see the every-day trouble of this couple, as we would see that of a straight couple. (And I hate Jenny.) Marina gives me a rather Inara feeling, I think she's really interesting. She's the kind of character I'd come up with, I think - her own set of moralities, and she won't let anybody give her any shit. I just can't wait to see her being more developed, 'cause so far she's more the shadow of a possibly fascinating character than anything else. (And I hate Jenny.) And she's got a nice voice, too, but nothing to rival Shane's. (And I hate Jenny.) And Kit is great, too - played by Pam Grier - love the accent. 'Sides, it's always good to see a straight gal in such a gay-oriented show.
Oh, and had anybody ever heard about a lesbian-identified man? Kudos to Lisa! Seriously, a lesbian-identified man? I'm really confused about that. But I love the guy - mainly because he's played by Devon Gummersall, aka Brian Krakow in My So-Called Life (and incidentally Sean DeLuca in Roswell). Got me thinking back to My So-Called Life, this was truly a work of art as far as teenage shows go. I need to look up DVD editions. Besides, look at the cast on that show - Claire Danes, Jared Leto, Devon, and also A.J. what's-her-name (yeah, I get bad with names sometimes). Not to mention one of the first main gay characters on TV. Ha, I still semi-remember the song Jordan Catalano (I love his name) had written for... well, his car. And that piece Angela had written about people being made of paper - the episode with the English teacher that finally ran out on them - Jordan admitting he can't read - the ever so realistic portrayal of Angela's parents' couple difficulties - the pirate and the fairy tale princess - Rayanne and her mum - "you're so beautiful that it hurts" - Angela obsessing on a button of Jordan's shirt - so many things. I really need to see that show again.
To go back to The L word
, I've gotta say: I hate Jenny. It might come as a shock (if you, you know, haven't seen the show and don't know Jenny), but yeah. Joey had told me she didn't like her, so I'd quite prepared myself to like her (we tend to very much not like the same characters), or at least to give her a shot, but there is no. Way. At. All. She could have been interesting, but she just comes off as a bitca and a nympho, though she had this interesting arc going for her - falling for Marina while being engaged to Tim, being this artistic type - but no. A nymphomaniac bitca is all that comes through with me. I have trouble seeing what is the point of this arc by now - maybe it'll get better, but so far I think they quite screwed it up. Though, okay, Tim sweetness.
Anyway. On a sidenote, managed to write my WlAS episode in time. Yay! It was tough, and it didn't turn out *at all* like what we'd planned, but oh well. I was getting hopeless.
You are going to Marry Josh Hartnett. He is really
shy, but don't let that fool you. He is really
outgoing and sweet with those he loves and will
be loyal to them for the rest of his life.
Congrats!! Which male celebrity are you going to marry? (14 choices now!!) brought to you by Quizilla
Gakked from twixou
, good, I fared better than her (poor her got Justin Timberlake). Josh is rather cute, and he can do quite a good Yorkshire accent (check out Blow Dry with Alan Rickman and Bill Nighy!).
Alrighty. Here's chapter four of FoF (which was again much much improved thanks to cgwriting
), and I'm off to work on those presentations.( Chapter Four of a Flight of Fancy )
