movies... (etc.)

Emma and i were gonna see The Village tonight (yeah, Rec Council free movies) but they couldn't get the projector to work. While we were waiting we talked about movies with Sara and i said that i had been really annoyed with part of Love Actually because i hadn't realized that two plotlines were separate plotlines (and was thus confused/annoyed) because i couldn't tell the male leads in each plotline apart (describing them to Emma she told me the two men in question were Liam Neeson and Colin Firth). We had also been chatting about movies after dinner including how i tend to have difficulty differentiating between all the blond chicks (talking about actresses in general). I have far more difficulty with men, though.

I actually like watching movies and feeling like i'm just watching characters rather than "Yes, i'm watching Actor X playing a role" but the fact that i have difficulty differentiating between the males within a movie is a problem.

Also from the dinner conversation:

Audrey Hepburn annoys me, though i suspect i would like Katharine Hepburn.

I told Emma that The Dark Crystal is Star Wars with muppets and it occurred to me that Ghost World (i read the comic and saw the movie) is Catcher in the Rye for girls.

It occurred to Emma that The Good Girl is much like Anna Karenina.

Speaking of comparisons: I watched Velvet Goldmine with part of the slash contingent last week and while glam rock image is pretty, but the music is not particularly pleasing to my ears. The movie was shades of This Is Spinal Tap, Hedwig, and Gia (all of which i think i liked better than VG).

When the people trying to work the projector finally gave up, Emma and i went to the 7-11 because i decided i wanted chocolate and then we wandered around town for a while (joined for a while by Liz) until it started raining and we headed home and stayed in the dining room talking about religion (among other things). At one point Kate came in and invited us to watch Saved! with them and we were tempted but decided to stay talking and ended up heading back to our rooms after not too long (ostensibly to go to bed).

I feel like i should work on my paper more (i.e. skim and take notes on more books so that i have a prayer of getting the whole thing actually written on Sunday) but then i wonder if perhaps sleep wouldn't be a better idea (particularly because it would be nice to not sleep through church yet again, though recently i feel uncomfortable being at church). Decisions decisions.

    Waiting to board the train this morning, I thought white flecks were falling (and I knew rain/snow was predicted) but I wasn't sure. Walking to HBS,…

    I'd been hearing snow was predicted for Friday, so I was surprised to see on the flist this morning Laura saying it was snowing outside. Apparently…
