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 :)

Spent the night on an overnight train from St Petersburg to Moscow. No sleep, of course, but I finally caught up on Pan Am, watched pilot episode of Touch, another episode of Poirot, and new episodes of Law and Order: UK and Alcatraz. I also finished first season of Star Wars The Clone Wars - despite my strong dislike for the prequels, I enjoy the cartoon series immensely. And after all, of the three major reasons I don't like the prequels, one reason is completely absent from the cartoon, the second hasn't showed yet (and there's a good chance it won't show at all), and the third can be treated as a genre feature :)

I was quite surprised to discover that it was colder in Moscow than in St Petersburg - it's normally the other way round, as St Petersburg is located farther to the north.

Smiley, my Yorkshire terrier, was, as usual, besides himself with joy when I arrived :) I slept for several hours with him on guard, woke up around 8.30 p.m., helped my sister with her English exercise (she's obviously progressing!), ate grilled fish, and now I'm going to watch yesterday's episodes of my shows (including Ringer - oh, do I miss Ringer!), with Smiley sitting in my lap :)

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...
