I hope you all had a nice Christmas!
I had a jolly nice time myself. There was eating (of course) and watching Christmas TV (with varying levels of interest), plus presents and visiting relatives :D We played Trivial pursuit at my grandparent's house, and there was just the right amount of people (and just the right amount of not taking it too seriously) to make it fun. I haven't seen either of my grandparents that happy since my granddad had to move into a home, so it was really nice.
In my opinion, Inception lives up to the hype that's around. It's a movie about dreams and sharing dreams (no wonder that I like it), and all the fun that that entails. It has a very retro 50s/60s feel to it too, with tailored clothing and slicked-back hair, which I found rather charming.
Moon is a sci-fi that, on the surface of it, has a lot in common with 2001: A Space Odyssey. It differs in some key respects though, which I won't go into, otherwise I'd be telling you the whole plot.
Present-wise, I got a lot of things that I really wanted, but had neglected to tell anyone about, so I think I was very lucky there. This includes, a laundry bag, new pyjamas, and a handbag:
(That's my 'Argh! The timer's going! Get into position!' face.) I've wanted a handbag like this for ages ♥
Oh, and the laundry bag came with an apron!
Look how much I love dusting!
In other present news, I got a boxset of The Thick of It :D I've already watched the first series in the past few days, and now I'm going to try to marathon the rest of it if I can. (Apologies in advance if I suddenly get more sweary.)

@Emma: I felt a little nauseous while watching Moon, actually! There’s a surprising amount of vomiting in that film. I enjoyed it though (the film that is, not the nausea).
@Nick: I’ll leave that to James. He’s the master at that game.

You should become a catalogue model!!!
Aww, how cute are you? That is a very awesome apron! I wish I enjoyed dusting that much. My house looks like an abandoned warehouse, sometimes; I don’t think I’ve dusted since the Clinton administration.
I went to sleep while I was watching Moon, but I had eaten McDonald’s food immediately beforehand so it probably wasn’t the movie’s fault. (Nor was the nausea, I bet.)
Happy Late New Year!

Ooh, I’ve not heard of Black Swan. I’ll have to check it out :D
We had a massive 11 course meal for New Year’s Eve. It was lots of fun, if quite filling. I’ll post pictures next time I blog!
I hope you had a nice holiday! I’m going back to work tomorrow, but not before I’ve completed another job application today. Perseverance!

Hi!! Happy New Year! I saw Inception when I was at Ox and liked it a lot too, especially the cinematography but if you want a movie that really messes with you, watch Black Swan. I just saw it yesterday and wow! it is creepy and powerful and very different - you must go an see it! What else is new with you?
