You've only just seen The Unicorn and the Wasp? Oh dear; you've got a lot to come . . .
I really don't want to spoil it for you (yes, I know you said you can handle spoilers), but I suppose I could say this:
The next two episodes are probably the greatest episodes of Doctor Who I've ever seen. Honestly. Steven Moffat is a spectacular writer, and I'm so glad he's taking over the role of head writer. Midnight only aired yesterday over here, and it's also tremendous, and includes some of the greatest acting from David Tennant I've seen yet.
The last three episodes are being hushed up, obviously. But . . . *looks over his shoulder* . . . they do include Rose (obviously), Martha, the Daleks, and Davros (the creator of the Daleks). Not really that much is known about them (which is excellent, I think).
I'm guessing they actually air the episodes over there, then, seeing as you get them so late? You could always watch them online. They're up on YouTube if you can't wait. :)
I'll definitely check out Tom's youtube page. The weather in L.A. has been wonderful, but I haven't had a chance to enjoy the beach :( I graduated on June 4 (OMG!!!!!!!) and it was beautiful. I'm really excited about life after high school. I totally understand the anti-studying reflex. And I'm sorry about the crazy weather. Hopefully it will change to your advantage.
HELLO! First of all, your quote at the top is awesome. who created that?! Secondly, i hope you're doing well. i haven't talked to you in awhile and i hope your summer has been wonderful. the weather in California is beautiful and clear.
Well, I've always been a Dumbledore/Madam Pince shipper, but seeing as he was homosexual it would never have happened. Apart from that, I suppose Ron/Hermione, which was by far the most obvious, and likely.
The epilogue ... Hmm ... Well, one has to remember that J. K. Rowling was under an immense amount of pressure to get everything right, and she really wanted to make everyone happy, as well as herself. I sometimes think that she might have been better off writing the books out of the public gaze, and then publishing them. Of course, this wouldn't have been very good for us, but it must be horrific to write under those conditions. Nevertheless, I do feel that the epilogue seemed a bit ... rushed. The names are slightly odd, and the plot was a bit cheesy. But it's how she chose to end it, and I'm happy with that.
Pride and Prejudice is a wonderful book, it truly is. It is fantastically structured: everything has its place and its consequences, and the language is sublime. I am neither an English teacher nor a heterosexual female, but I can certainly appreciate the book's beauty. The plot is, of course, wonderful, and so well-developed. I don't really want to sound too much like I'm writing an English Literature essay, so I'll simply say that it is magnificent, and will undoubtedly remain one of the greatest books ever written for a very long time. The delicacy of style and subtlety of the romance, and yet at the same time the fervour of it, is something which is unparalleled.
Anyway, you can tell that I love it.
Thank you for the birthday wishes, by the way. I had a wonderful time.
I really want to read A Clockwork Orange, but I always get distracted by other books. It's a shame, but I should suppose I will read it at some point.
I do like the Beatles a lot. When it comes to 'song' music, I'm rather picky: I'm more of an 'instrumental' music person, really, i.e. classical music (but not the awful classical music which so many people think of when they hear those words). Chopin was a master, and his music drives me. Debussy's music, also, is spectacular, and the modern composer Dario Marianelli is glorious; he composed the soundtracks to Atonement and Pride & Prejudice.
Oddly enough, however, wizard rock comes into my taste in music, with honourable mentions including the Parselmouths, the Moaning Myrtles, and Oliver Boyd and the Remembralls. Bob Dylan, Paul Weller, Sammy Davis Junior, Jamie Cullum, and (don't laugh) James Blunt, are amongst my favourites in the general world of song.
Yes, there certainly is a basis for a friendship there! It's not very often I meet someone my age who likes classical music and literature, so I am very excited to meet you. And it's wonderful that you're taking a music theory course next year!
By the way, I love the Pirates! series; the new one, Pirates! in and Adventure With Napoleon just came out, so I need to get that. They are truly hilarious, as you said.
Hey there! sorry that i didn't get back for a while (um more like a long while!), I haven't been on for awhile.
anyway, i totally agree with you! the Office is completely made of awesome!
i'm not sure but i think that my name in my pants (teehee) is PennyLane (once again i tell you I haven't been on in a while :))
or perhaps i simply put my name which would be Justine. lol sorry bout that :)
see you around! :-)
Music is like my anti-drug! omg, i'm having so many panic attackd XO...well, there's music all around, so if my parents or siblings put it on, nothing i can do; if i'm watching something or w/e and it has music...yea. but it's STILL so hard cuz i have different tastes in music...T-T never have i looked foward to Easter as much as I do now...next year i'll just give up meat...T-T
maybe the helicopter did crash, i mean, they survived one crash already....
oh! and the whole lying about who survived the crash thing! eight people survived and swam to shore?? and why was the plane found in the ocean?? wasn't it all on the beach or in the jungle when they crashed??
i'm totally not helpful, i have twenty questions as every answer. XD
I think sawyer was going for a little bit of both, but mostly he was trying to keep her at the settlement(what is it called??). part of me wants to think that he wanted to watch over her and actually keep her safe, but that might just be that i'm a girl. :/
i'm never very good at calling what's going to happen. not that i don't try every time. the only big one i ever got was the entire concept of the flash forward on the last season finale, remember how you didn't really know until the end?
