short pointless entry. - reality is a matter of choice
short pointless entry.
*has much work to do*

I just wanted to clarify something. That entry the other day, about people who aren't talking to me, it wasn't a ruse to get more comments to my posts or anything like that. I've been getting comments fine. Anyway, I decided a while back that I wouldn't let that get to me. No, it was about the fact that there are specific people who I've heard little or nothing from for quite some time. Four, actually. Three of them have since come forward and said 'hiii', but one still hasn't, but, hey. They probably don't even realise I mean them.

Just so you know it wasn't a 'comment now!' thing.

Went to see Kill Bill Vol. 2 on Saturday. 'Twas good, as I would rightly have expected and it was interesting that while it wasn't The Bride herself who killed Budd, he was killed by the snake that was her viper squad codename. I just thought that was a lovely little idea. And the ending? Spot on, killing him with that particular blow.

Eyeballs being squashed on the floor tend to make me wince, however, even if it was so very obviously made of plastic.

The dialogue, as you'd expect from a Tarantino screenplay, was sharp, witty and second to none. Apparantley he wants to do an animated prequel now. This reminds me of something, but I'm sure I don't know what. (Still. The Matrix was a far inferior film series to Kill Bill, and it is easy to compare them since they were borne out of the same kind of idea - basically a kung fu movie for 'our' generation).

But now, work. Essay. *sigh*. .

I feel: okay okay

*squeezes eyes shut against spoilers and scrolls down*

I swear lj used to scroll the page down as soon as you clicked 'Leave a comment'. Huh. Anyway, I'm not sure if I am the mysteeerious fourth person, but I am aware I haven't been commenting on your entries of late. But also, haven't really been commenting on anyone's entries unless they're specifically directed at me, or contain a question to which I know the answer, or something like that. But that's to do with how tremendously busy I am. In a few weeks, though, I won't be. And that will be good.

I have to go write my dissertation now.

You are indeed Mysterious Fourth Person, but I know that there are reasons you're not commenting much, so it's okay, as they're the same reasons I'm not commenting on yours much, or many other people. We are both tremendously busy and I just failed music business. Again.

Anyway, I miss you. And the three others. But you have since said stuff to me, so the missage is less.

I will finish my essay soon. yes.

Oh! But! I did interview questions for you the other day and you didn't answer them.

I know, and I will, as soon as this is done and I have something resembling a life again.

Although interestingly my idea of having a life is sitting at my computer. You'd think I'd want to get away from it... hmmm. I'm such a geek.

hey... we're both geeks.

Which reminds me now that Mike and I toasted our geekness during meetage in Liverpool the other week.

I'm back in the land of no-geeks. Like, we saw a trailer for Freaky Friday, and I said the original had a very young Jodie Foster in.

"Who's Jodie Foster?"
"Incredibly famous actress who won an Oscar?"
"What's she been in?"

Sorry? Jodie who?


Being a geek isn't about knowing Jodie Foster. It's about seeing, for example, Danny Strong in a film or something and saying 'That's Jonathan!'
