kawehilani: My absolutely favourite SW icon (Default)
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 :)

Katya came to my place in the evening, and we made mulled wine (first time I was using white wine for it, and it was actually very good, although I'm still a red wine fan :)) and watched A New Hope in the classic Soviet dubbed version of 1990. A New Hope still remains the only Star Wars episode to be dubbed on a really professional level - the art of dubbing seems to be lost forever with the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Accidentally, A New Hope is the only episode of Star Wars I watched on the big screen - it was a special event hosted by the Cinema Museum in Moscow, back in the times when I was studying German Philology at Moscow University. April 2007, to be exact.

Meanwhile, found a great article on Death Star PR: Star Wars Characters React to the News of George Lucas’ Retirement. No idea if he's actually retiring, but I nearly laughed my head off reading the article and definitely recommend it to every fan :)

For those who remember my question about the pronunciation of Temperance Brennan's middle name: I asked Kathy Reichs on Twitter, and she replied that it's pronounced as day-see :) Yay for Twitter!

And speaking of Bones - just read in the omniscient Wikipedia that new episodes of season 7 will only be released in spring. The reasons are understandable, but I'm going to miss the show - I do like the books more, but the series is so lively and enjoyable.

Spent almost the whole day sleeping, fighting a headache, and catching up on TV shows.

And I'm still listening to John Williams' score for Star Wars. Since I disliked the prequel trilogy completely and watched it for the second and last time in April 2007 (isn't Livejournal great? Of course, I know the exact month and year only because I recorded it there!), I only listened to the music from the movies once or twice, and it was quite some time ago, too, so I've completely forgotten just how awesome Duel of the Fates was. It's easily the best composition from the prequels - I almost wanted to re-watch them. But instead, I'm looking forward to watching A New Hope with a friend tomorrow evening :)

Hooray! Now I have the complete John Williams discography on my laptop!

Adding it all to my iTunes library and anticipating several hours of superb music - and some translation work :)

By the way, if anyone has a Last.Fm account, you can find me here ;)

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...
