As usual, stayed up all night trying to meet another deadline. I still dislike TRADOS (mostly because I have to learn as I go, in the process of using it), but sometimes it helps enormously.

So, I went to bed at about 2 p.m., slept for several hours, and then crocheted for a while, watching Agatha Christie's Poirot. This TV show never ceases to amaze me: I was quite astonished to see Adam Carter (Spooks), Mrs Hughes (Downton Abbey), and 2nd Lt Bush (Hornblower) all in one episode! It was S09E02, Sad Cypress, and it was amazing. Funnily enough, the next episode I watched (The Hollow) featured Megan Dodds, another actress from Spooks - she played Christine Dale, CIA representative-turned-Mrs Matthew Archer.

You do know that popular joke about "starting a new life on Monday", don't you? OK, I'm going to start a new life on Sunday :) This Tuesday I went to a friend for a cup of tea. I knew she'd been attending training sessions in saberfighting (it's Star Wars-style artistic fencing) since autumn, and I've been thinking about asking her the details. So I asked. And, as a result, on Sunday I'm going to my first training session. Hope I'll like it :)

And now it's time for a little meme :)

Comment to this entry and I'll give you a letter. List ten things that you love that begin with that letter and then post that list on your journal.

[personal profile] brisus gave me the letter W :)

Wind - it's usually associated with freshness and coolness, and I love the sensation of wind on my face.
Winter - my favourite season. Provided it's a real winter, that is, cold and snowy.
White - one of my favourite colours.
William Shakespeare - my diploma thesis was dedicated to his English history plays, and I was thinking about writing a PhD thesis on the same subject. I no longer wish to engage in literary studies, but Shakespeare will always mean a lot to me.
White Collar - the first TV show I started watching on a regular basis :) I'm enjoying every episode like I enjoy no other show. One of the reasons for my love for White Collar is Peter and Neal's friendship. They're really good friends, and it shows.
Waking the Dead - a British police procedural drama about a cold case squad. It's quite dark, but much more realistic than most similar shows, and it's very British in its attention to details and the characters' working and personal relationships.
Wikipedia - no comments needed, I think ;)
Williams, John - my absolutely favourite film composer. I've already mentioned that I only went to see The Phantom Menace 3D in order to listen to the Duel of the Fates in Dolby Surround. Can't wait to hear The Imperial March in Dolby, too.
Williams, Billy Dee - Lando's one of my favourite characters on Star Wars Original Trilogy, and I also liked Billy Dee's performance in two episodes of White Collar. Hope he'll appear in more episodes.
Winslet, Kate - one of the most beautiful and talented actresses, in my opinion. Looking forward to watching Titanic 3D - the trailer was amazing!

Friendship! for obvious reasons.

Family again for the obvious reasons!

Fall (the season) because it's of the colors of the trees and the weather is usually the perfect temperature - not too hot not too cold.

FLASHPOINT! - one of my favorite shows!

Fudge one of my favorite desserts

Friendly's a restaurant / ice cream shop chain and a big part of my childhood - if we were going to get ice cream it was at Friendly's.

Fantasy my second favorite genre after Science Fiction.

Fiction There's always something to love!

Fajitas One of my favorite foods!

Favorites! All the things I love! [okay that might be cheating but I don't care!]

I was given the same letter. Sadly I forgot to add William Shakespeare. How could I be so remiss? :/

Ah, someone else who prefers winter! I'd much rather have cold than heat.

Athena
Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't comin' back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me
There's no place I can be
Since I found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me...

Firefly Theme Song
