OK then, that was weird.
Some of those actually make sense!
Well, as many of you will know, during the Sabb auction in term 1, I purchased Carly Braddock for £85. This cost paid for her to spend a day with me.
Since then, I received a phone call saying it is up to me to email her to sort out, and I haven't!
I really have no idea what to do about it. And now it is a bit close to my exams, and I have no idea what to do with her.
I am just thinking about levin it and hoping Children In Need enjoyed my money.
What do I do?
(PS: When do the Sabbs hand over?)
OH MY GOD! THIS IS SO GOOD!
As you can see, I absolutely loved this film. The books were amazing, it has to be said, and lots of people were worried about the film, but it was so good.
After fans of the books/radio/TV series have argued about the casting of Mos Def (A black american rapper) as Ford Prefect, he came across really well.
It was nice to see Douglas Adam's book on the big screen, and it was still very like the book. Lots of the "classic" gags from his written work were still there (eg: Petunias and a Sperm Whale), but not all. This was a shame, but as we all know, to put the whole book into 2-ish hours is no mean feat.
The one thing that slightly irritated me was the love story. It doesnt appear in the books/radio/TV series, but is made a very big thing in the film. It gets my back up. But even Douglas himself admitted it would have to be included if a film was ever made, so here it is.
So, in summary, GO AND SEE THIS FILM.
Weather you are a first time hitchhiker or a dedicated fan, you will definately enjoy this.
And just remember 2 things:
- Always Remember Where Your Towel Is.
- DON'T PANIC!
