On teh proudness subject, I came runner-up in that writing competition thing! 33,000 people entered it and there were only 500 runners-up and 7 main winners that got their work published, but I get a fluffy/light-up pen for my efforts! *is still proud* My mother worked it out that 1.5% of people that entered got a prize.
I've finished Bleak House (the book) now... and I really want to go shriek about it on here, but I'm going to make Meredithy watch it (the tv adaptation) in January when she gets it on her American channels so I can't. But OMG!!
And Gilly will do such a wonderful job as Lady Dedlock...the promos for it are on the BBC channels now and I die of lust/love/admiration/everything else possible for her and she looks like she'll be perfection acting wise. Again. In the little promo thing, she faints and I shriek "Why teh hell is no-one catching her?!?!" Every single magazine I've read that has an article on it (ok, so the same magazine mentioned this point in several different ways. Eeeee!!) has talked about her being the stand-out performance and excellent etc, so I'm hoping for a BAFTA for her for it. If that made sense ::)
Anyway, must go, need to make fan-girly bookmark ;)
Ha. Ha. Hahahaha! *cracking up* I just did this lurvely genius vampire name generator found a-here: http://www.emmadavies.net/vampire and these were my results:
The Great Archives determine you to have gone by the identity:
Goddess of Scandanavia
Known in some parts of the world as:
Leto of Wraiths
The Great Archives Record:
A needy and violent spirit.
Hee. Strangely accurate!
Anyway. I did this thing in English where we had to pick an ordinary event and write it as something extraordinary; Meredithy, do you want to read it? I'll post it on here if you do.
Everything going ok, and I had Biology homework that OMG I understood! How rare!
English is wonderful and I'm actually even enjoying the poetry analysis side of it, something I'm not usually too keen on. Although the last poem we did was teh shite. The rest have been genius though. We took inspiration for this thing (see above) from a poem called Blessing, by Imtiaz Dharker: http://www.erzsebel.com/clock/
Anyway, I'm teh leaving now, to eat.
(Meredithy, I'm still alive! I was just feeling really grotty when I saw the schexy people on your lovejournal so I didn't reply...as to replying, I should make a start on new!email today...unless I get distracted by Viggo fangirling! *kisses for you*)
