Strikeouts are boring - besides that, they're fascist.  Throw some ground balls.  More democratic.

I learned that I'm better at this interrogation thing than I thought...

I take it you really liked Atonement the book then, excellent!

Yesterday, I learned that Richard Wagner actually wrote fantastic music, and that I have been SO wrong in not liking him.

Considering I had a three hour pre-production class... surprisingly little. How can we have a three hour class where the teacher does no teaching?

Nor did I learn anything in Multimedia Design, which should really be called DVD design, or rather DVD-copy-the-teacher's-design... Another three hour class where all there was to do was link the menus to the movies... ten minutes worth of work...

I hate Mondays... Thursdays and Fridays are far better.

Oh, and Basil... I loved the film... Not quite as much as the book, but very much indeed...

Joe Wright really screwed up.

I actually thought the film was an extremely close adaptation.

Wow I really liked the film.  Although I'm generally more story oriented, and I generally don't remember the aesthetics of a movie over the plot/characters, my overall memory of the movie was of beautiful shots.  And I would LOVE to have a dress as gorgeous as that green one Keira Knightly wore in the movie.  And be able to fit in it...

Let me rephrase that: I hated the ending...

Well, you wouldn't like the book any better then.
