Something was decidedly hinky with the heating last night, my bedroom was a raging inferno and I ended up waking up twice; once at 2.30am and once at 5.30am. It was getting to the point where I was sleeping without a quilt. Both times I was required to gulp down a glass of freezing cold water before my throat would engage. That, of course, completely changed this morning; I was beginning to wish that we had a subway station where the platforms were underground and not on an open-air embankment.
I planned to do some work last night (or at least, some not-work), but ended up watching all of The Two Towers instead. Really, despite the fact that half the dialogue ends up being spoofed, they're pretty damn good movies (although I could quite easily live without Legolas skateboarding through Helm's Deep).
I wish good movies were released in January. I haven't actually seen anything since Quantum of Solace
, mostly because we got into the Oscar season and there's rarely anything truly worthwhile even in that. At the moment, we seem to have a eight hour movie about Australia
; The Spirit
(which I vaguely want to see in a 300
sort of way, although it's been reviewed as a bit iffy); a dreamy vampire movie for twelve year old girls; and Inkheart
, a Stardustian fantasy which apparently isn't as good as it should have been.
Oh, have you seen the new Doctor? He's twelve!
