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 :)

Winter has come! Snow and frost (-15 to -20 Celsius), at last. Lucky me, working from home and not having to go out in the cold twice a day :)

Watched new episodes of White Collar, Southland, and Royal Pains. White Collar was the best, as usual - I really enjoyed Read more... ) And as for Royal Pains, I really miss Boris - he was my favourite character during the previous seasons. I hope Campbell Scott didn't just quit the show!

Found a new good TV show: Bomb Girls, a six-part Canadian mini-series about girls working at a munitions factory during World War II. It's not unlike the British Land Girls, but it's far better and more gripping. I definitely recommend it to anyone interested in WWII.

I also decided that my life has become a little boring, so tomorrow evening I'm going to register as a observer for the upcoming presidential elections. What's even more exciting, there's chance I'll be not merely an observer, but a member of a district election commission. Wish me luck :)

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 :)

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...
