hmm.. I meant to post this over the weekend, but I spent the weekend catching up with my friends and my sleep in Manchester. Sorry I didn't comment on many peoples review posts, I just didn't have time.
So would it be fair to say that the reaction to the new episode was mixed? XD
I did read everyone's posts so it may sound like I'm answering some of the things other people brought up.

To start with I'll say that I spent most of the episode grinning like a loon, I really love the whole good against evil, angel against demon thing, I think that is because I'm a fantasy genre lover at heart and it's a classic fantasy premise.
Spoilers for 5.01 behind the cut. :)

Try to see it my way, Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong. While you see it your way There's a chance that we might fall apart before too long. )

I have been ill today, I have a cold and feel a bit crappy and so didn't go into classes today. It's actually kind of liberating as I feel completely justified in just sitting around in my pyjamas all day for once. My flatmate was very sweet though and brought me back a subway and chocolate to eat for lunch.

As part of my remedy plans I watched 'Its a Terrible Life' I must say it made me laugh a lot, which I always count as a very good sign for an episode!

First off I'm going to jump on the bandwagon t say:


And here is some hotness to celebrate <3


[ profile] chash has been doing drabble requests and her first re-cap post is here so if anyone hasn't read these they definitely should, because they are all amazing! And absolutely have to read the one she wrote for my request, because it is the cutest, awesomest, most adorkable little J2 drabble ever :D *is completely unbiased*

Yesterday I went to see Milk with a couple of friends. It was a really great film and I can definitely see why Sean Penn won the Oscar he portrayed Harvey Milk brilliantly. spoilery bits )
On a more shallow note is James Franco not hot? I totally thought he was, he has such a lovely smile!

Ok, so I finally went to see My Bloody Valentine last Saturday, and am only now getting around to posting some of my thoughts about it. Hopefully this has given them some time to ferment in my brain! I will put all the spoilers under the cut even though I think most of you have seen it by now :D
Here be spoilers )

In other matters, my friend and I found something really interesting yesterday so I thought I'd share it. We had dinner with her parents at the Midland Hotel in Manchester, where they were staying and on the walls in the corridors there were displayed old letters that were sent to guests and not collected or sent to staff etc. There were a whole lot of letters that were written by two people to each other, they both seemed to travel loads and so sent their letters to the hotel. At first the letters seemed like they were just friends, but after a couple we definitely thought they sounded more like lovers, they also sent each other pressed flowers and sketches and newspaper clippings, it was so sweet. However she was definitely married to someone else and they spoke of having secret meetings, the labels the hotel put up said that the letters had started in the 1920's and continued on and off for 80 years. They were discovered in a trunk a couple of years ago when the Midland was refurbished, the letters had all been read at the hotel but not been removed, I guess in case they were found by the wrong person. It just seems amazing that they could have an affair for so long and communicating mainly through a hotel. They seemed like they were both really nice people and it was interesting seeing this little snapshot into their lives, I so wanted to see the rest to find out the whole story, apparently there were hundreds! Anyway bits of real history like this make me squeee. It should so totally be made into a film I think, with some kind of happy ending :D
