Though your feathers are tattered and furled, i'll love you all your days
We saw The Dark Knight the other day. I'd been waiting for so long a. because i'm a fan of Batman and b. because oh my goodness the previews made it look like Heath did an outrageously good job. And it didn't disappoint. I was kept captivated for the whole film, which doesn't often happen for me, eg- Get Smart was great and i LOVE Steve Carell, but i found my brain wandering off at times. Anyway, for me it was the best Batman film of them all AND just the best film i've seen in a looong time. So two enthusiastic thumbs up from me and i definitely recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it. It's a great film despite whether you're into Batman or not. I'm wondering if Christopher Nolan will do another one, cause i'm not sure he can top what he's done with The Dark Knight. Anyway, go go! See for yourself.
Seeing that movie was mine and Jeremy's last treat until honeymoon. We just made a pact so that we could really get on with building the savings account and it basically means we'll have no fun in our lives until we land in Melbourne. We're not allowed to spend any money on food (apart from groceries. No coffees, take outs, lift plus etc etc), i'm not allowed any more clothes (waaaaaa!) and Jeremy is only allowed three items, which is insane considering he works in retail, and the list goes on like that. But when we're in Melbourne with a ridiculous amount of money to waste on restaurants, shoppping, whatever the hell we want, it will all be worth it.
Right now i'm back in class. Semester two is underway.. The last semester of this degree and the last semester before marriage- it's all kinda surreal. I'm doing 5 papers this semester and working heaps, involved at church and putting the finishing touches on this wedding, so it's all kinda crazy and i don't really have many spare moments. Right now i'm supposed to be writing a feature article critique on a piece about the legacy of Yves Saint Laurent but i've hit a block so here i am. It's good to write about something i actually find interesting though, he was an amazing designer and i thank thank thank him for the Le Smoking suit and his making the androgynous look part of the vernacular (enough with this 'boho' crap already!).
Ok. Back to work. But i have a feeling this blog might actually be the one. I have a habit of making them then never using them but i think this time might just be it.
