What I'm Doing 4:

What I'm reading:
(Very, very funny satire on academic life).

What I watched last:
(At the request of Hodmandods Minor and Major. Pretty funny though somehow I fell asleep half way through for a few minutes. This despite the theatre being pretty disgusting - smelt strongly of sweaty bodies and burnt sugar and we had to wade through a large amount of other people's detritus to get to seats. It reminded me why I haven't been out to see a film for a long, long time).

What I'm writing:
Nothing very much.

What I'm hoping to accomplish tomorrow:
The shopping.
(Ambitions at an all time low at the moment).

What I'm wearing:
Terracotta linen trousers and sleeveless brown shirt.

What I'm listening to:
Talkin' Bout A Revolution by Tracy Chapman
(An old favourite - having heard it on a bus in Nimes felt the urge to dig it out and listen again).

What I'm dreaming about:
Going down to London to swan around looking at art exhibitions and have a drink with one of my editors next week.

Have you ever seen Faris Buller's Day off. I love the scene where they are in the museum. I love the part where the dorky friend is staring at a famous painting so intently.

I love it.

No, I've not seen that. Thanks for the recommendation Susangalique. I've not much clue about films and welcome guidance!

You've only said these words "Very, very funny satire on academic life", but I really must look that book up. Reminds me of David Lodge's early work, which I loved.

It's very good, CFR - I think you'd enjoy it - as the Times said 'Lucky Jim for the twenty-first century' and it really is laugh-out loud funny.
