Just a girl attempting to see beyond the scope of the ridiculous gelatinous orbs in my skull, to hear more than vibrations in the air, and to recognise the complex ideas behind the limits of spoken language.
Worst bit about day: cinema plans abandoned once again.
Best bit about day: Spooks!! On television! In English!!! Yes, for us people in Germany that’s a reason to rejoyce…
And while I can’t stand “North & South” for longer than 5min without gagging, while “Robin Hood” makes me want to bash my head in, while I can’t seem to get into “Strike Back” - Gods, the suits, the haircut, the blue filters, and the role sure do suit him. And that bloodspatter shot is just bloody amazing (pun not intended).
Worst bit about day: crook of left arm, throat and lip looking like war zones post-gastroscopy - at least they don’t hurt much.
Best bit about day: prepping another one of my all-time-favourite books for my pupil tomorrow. If anyone could physically give my brain goosebumps, Auster would… *bows in utter and rather speechless admiration*
Worst bit about (yester)day: getting unrationallly worried about upcoming gastroscopy after all.
Best bit about (yester)day: protocoling M.A. oral exams for my PhD supervisor for 6h straight and discussing the marks the students should receive. No, no sarcasm whatsoever - examining/testing people is so much fun!!
*while humming “Still Alive” wishing there was a job such as ‘professional examiner’ or something where a person doesn’t have to teach or anything but just relieves poor overworked professors of this one particular duty*
Worst bit about (yester)day: still tiring out too quickly for proper crafting progress, blargh.
Best bit about (yester)day: accidentally zapping into BSG - even though not nearly one my favourite eps, it still managed to make me laugh, get furious and get all teary eyed within 10mins. Sensing a full rewatch ahead :)
Worst bit about day: being too tired to get up on time - hence forgetting to pack a book before going to work - hence having to try really hard for 8 hours not to claw my skin off out of utter boredom.
Best bit about day: hopefully still to come when I crawl up in bed with a Terry Pratchett audiobook. I think, I feel like “Equal Rites” tonight… even though that unfortunately means Imrie and not Planer… might still change my mind, though. However, if it has to be best bit till now then that’s definitely digging up the artwork for this post. There will always be only one Discworld illustrator for me.
