Carefully optimistic

While we wait for 'the world leader in gas analysis technologies' to make up their minds whether to invite me in for a second interview (which I hope they will since I enjoyed my chat with them this morning), and wait for another call from an agency that said they might have a job for me just as I was saying goodbye to the 3 gentlemen I'd been talking to (and I didn't feel comfortable discussing this opportunity then and there), let me just list the film I plan to watch (old or new):

My friend and I were going to watch it together on a girls' night out a couple of months ago, but couldn't synchronise our diaries before it disappeared from The Hague's art house movie theatre; and it never played in any of the bigger cinemas.

Day 26 - Freakishly weird movie ending
Day 27 - Best villain
Day 28 - Most overhyped movie
Day 29 - Movie you have watched more than ten times
Day 30 - Saddest death scene
Day 31 - Scene that made you stand up and cheer

I'd also like to say that of the latest batch of American shows to hit our TV screens here in The Netherlands, Modern Family is made of win.

Hooray! I'm glad to here that things are picking up. Fingers crossed!

Things definitely do seem to be picking up; the agency that contacted me earlier today have now called back and I've given them permission to forward my details to their client; and I've just come off the phone with another recruitment service that had found my cv online...perhaps it was just the summer holidays that made the job hunt so dishearteningly difficult all this time.

Oooh! Fingers crossed!

I went to see Bright Star on my own - the first time I ever saw a movie alone - and loved it. It reminded me how powerful first love is - something I've not quite forgotten, but have never experienced since. The feeling like you'll die if you don't see them, the melting joy of a single touch, the singing happiness when they are with you. Nothing has ever matched it for me, though I recognise that's not a measure of love's worth. It's simply that I'm no longer a slave to my teenage lusts, romantic fantasies and hormones.

I presume you studied Keats in school and know how it ends. If not, try to remain ignorant before you go. :)

We had to study his 'Ode To A Nightingale' in 6th form; it put me off ever reading any of his other stuff. All I know is, he died young, as did Shelley and Byron...but they, at least, had adventures and tragic mishaps. Keats just had his tedious ode and consumption.
