Uneventful update

Manasse loves the smell of new leather. Whereas his sister Clio is adept at opening doors, Manasse has perfected the art of whipping the tops off shoeboxes, then rolling around inside until he smells just like a new shoe himself. I've just found him asleep, his paws wrapped proprietorily around the latest addition to my shoe collection, a pair of sturdy bronze-coloured boots. They went for a song in this last day of the sales, and although they're not exactly 'OMG droolworthy!', they were so comfortable when I tried them on that I just had to have them. I could walk for miles and miles in these babies, I have no doubt.

It's been a slow week, with nothing much happening except for Thursday when I went out with some friends and ended up seeing Dreamgirls at the cinema. Though hardly a masterpiece, it's quite an enjoyable film, and Eddy Murphy steals the show. Jennifer Hudson is amazing -- I had never heard her sing before (actually, I'd never heard of her before), but what a voice!

Less than three weeks now till my holiday...and I can hardly wait. Three more of my immediate colleagues have handed in their notice this last week, and won't be there when I come back from the States. That's five we've lost in the first three months of the year...and still Jobsworth believes it's nothing to do with him.

It's a match made in heaven! ;-)

I suspect Manasse has a lot of practice.

He certainly doesn't want for shoeboxes...

Oh kitties! We used to have one that could unlock and open the front door. Lucky for us the storm door was beyond her expertise. ^^

I was wondering about Dreamgirls. I saw an ad for it and thought it looked spiffy.

It is a good film, in that it exposes the attitude people had towards black music in the US during the 50s and 60s, before soul became acceptable to a white audience. Did you know for instance, that it was perfectly acceptable to steal a black artist's songs without crediting the original writer or paying them any kind of royalties?

LOL! The picture you painted of Manasse is just too cute. I can just see that.

I haven't seen Dreamgirls yet, although I do want to. I imagine I'll wait to rent it.

Hee! I sometimes think my Manasse is just too cute for his own good.

Saving Dreamgirls to rent on a rainy afternoon is a good idea. It's one of those non-taxing, enjoyable films that you don't have to think about at all.
