Blood. They are going to take my BLOOD.  

And put it in a little plastic bag and send it away to some little office where it will be, oh, eaten, I imagine. But enough of that.

I heard on the radio: Pride and Prejudice, the new Kiera Knightley film.

AASKJFHSJKHSF! AS;KASLF'SLFKJS! AHHHHH!!!!

*brain melts*

Why's her hair greasy in every shot? I'm just asking.

*

I wouldn't define myself as "tidy." In fact I would define myself as "preternaturally messy." But I'm not dirty. What's dirty? Congealed grease in the microwave. Yellow crusty grease on the hobs and frickin' extractor fan. Fly droppings along the top of the fridge door. Unwashed crockery on the drying board. Enough cutlery, in a six-person flat, for two and a half people and a goat. Food impounded into the carpet. Ring stains on every available surface, up to and including windowsills and the interior of cupboards and walls. Black marks all over said walls. Dead flys on the desk. Suspicious white powder on the mattress.

In case you're wondering, that stunning description belongs to my soon-to-be college accomodation. Still, it has a double bed and ensuite, and once it has been fumigated and whatnot it may be habitable. Also, Ed Byrne is coming to the Boole in October. Not for free, it's only a Student Union gig so it'll be everything you have plus your wife and a few camels, but hey. Ed Byrne! At my uni!

I really like my white coat.

Why's her hair greasy in every shot?
And why is she dressed in a sack? And WHY Kiera Knightley?

Yay, the joy of dorms. But living away from home usually makes up for abysmal rooms.

The most you hear her say in the clips I've seen is "Darcy." It's enough. Want to kill her. Now. Have scalpel, will travel.

True, true. I can now starve to death. xD Of course, I did decide to pick the acom that's in an area notorious for being dangerous at night. Welcome to the new me, the recluse!

Every time I hear about the upcoming P&P film I want to cry. It's not really about Keira, although I want to slap her. It's just... how can they replace Colin Firth? How? How can they even try? It's, I dunno, sacrilege.

And I just know that in the end I'm still going to watch the damned thing.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on September 6th, 2005 12:34 pm (UTC)
NO! It is not called Pride and Kiera. Or the Story of Eliza Bennett. And more than Firth -- I mean, Darcy is okayish, ugly but has a Snape thing with the cloak, although there's plenty better looking men in the UK why not one of those? *breathes* But Mrs Bennett? How? Just how? What an act to follow!

Yeah, me too. :(

Who is she, Lady Catherine? You're right, that may redeem it. Or not.

Fie, I spit upon the face of authenticity if it means greasy sacks!

Ze children of ze night are v. grateful for your contribution.
Frozen, and then eaten with a spoon. Like ice cream. *nods*

Still need to read that blasted book. Like so many others. *broods* I did get around to reading The Picture of Dorian Gray recently, though. I knew there was a reason why I liked that snarky old bastard. :D

I hear that fire is a good purifier... although that would leave you kind of homeless so, hmm. Perhaps you could just bleach the whole place? I'm sure the fumes would dissipate eventually. *ponders*

Re: Ze children of ze night are v. grateful for your contribution.
But hopefully hepatitis free? xD

I like Dorian Gray. Kind of disturbing, but the multiple slashy overtones made up for that. As for P&P, you must read it and watch the BBC version so you can laugh Keira's one to scorn. Like us.

Eh, my mother did a good job with the old Jif. I, er, vacumned.

Double bed, fly droppings and Ed Byrne? Does life get any better? You'll hate the white coat soon, don't you worry.

You should see my new flat, it's class, ahh.

*loves you*

kxx

Mine prolly would be too, if not for, eg, the DIRT. EVERYWHERE. Humph. Since when do English people say "class?" *suspicous*

I don't know why they have to remake Pride and Prejudace. The BBC series was excellent. True to the book and appealing to people who would never actually read a book by Jane Austen.

Plus, it had almostn3kkid!Colin Firth. No one can beat that.

It's called money and Hollywood. A fatal combination.

Nevair!

And yet another LJ set-up!
So, wait - what's the story? Is this a university owned-apartment? Or a dorm suite? Or what? It has stuff in it already? Disgusting stuff? EW.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on September 7th, 2005 12:34 pm (UTC)
Heehee.

It's college accomodation -- offsite and rented from the owners by the college. It's a "suite," I guess, six rooms to an apartment. It just hadn't been cleaned. In like ever. And it's only been rented for three lettings. Fer cryin' out loud.

I forgot to mention the stale breadrolls in a cupboard.

*snickers, but also gags a little bit* That new Pride and Prejudice movie isn't going to be as good as the first, which I can feel in my bones.

And I haven't even seen the original. WHY YES I AM BIASED WHY WHY DO YOU ASK?

. . . your room sends chills up and down my neat-not-exactly-freak-but-pretty-fastidious spine. *shriek*

Even on principle it won't, because as a two hour film it'll have to cut SO MUCH. For, it seems, to make room for boar's testicles. (Why, god, why?!)

My new pink bedclothes rather make up for it, though. And my mother did clean it. It was getting her to stop that proved difficult.

I saw the preview and came to the undeniable conclusion that it was going to be atrocious. ..And yet I have this urge to see it anyway, it's like driving by the scene of an accident - you don't want to look but you can't stop your eyes from moving toward it anyway. *shivers*

Oh, the dorms. Oi vey. I have horror stories about things people have found in the dorms. Funny, mind you, (if only because they never happened to me) but disgusting. Uck.

Exactly my feelings! I mean, if I wasn't thinking of the other it'd prolly be okay. But I will be thinking of the other, so it won't.

Thanks. You're a charming gel. I only have to live there.

I reckon it belonged to boys before.
Insufferable, man.: lasthopecynicalpirate on September 7th, 2005 10:43 am (UTC)
Did I ever tell you? That icon? BEAUTIFUL.

Her hair's greasy because this version is more 'real'. Fact. For example, they show a boar's testicles in one of the scenes, which the Beeb apparently did not do.

You should put that suspicious white powder in a plastic bag and send it to me, and then I'll sell it at exorbitant prices. You send it, I sell it. It would be a bit like drug trafficking.

Is it really a coat? Is it, in fact, more of a jacket? Do you put it on backwards? And does it have unusual sleeves? *is skeptical*
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on September 7th, 2005 12:39 pm (UTC)
Which one? If it's the kitty, I quite agree. I'd get more, only I'd spend all my time going "Gaa" at them and doing not much else.

Eh, I kind of vacumned it up. As well as my desk, my bathroom, my floor, my chair and the kitchen.

It is a DOCTOR'S COAT. Ha. Pwn. We need them our very first lesson, which will be a dissection. No, I tell a lie, it'll be the second, the first will be learning how to wash of the hands.

Not a Knightley fan, eh? They filmed some of that stuff at Chatsworth, which is really close to Sheffield. I hate Chatsworth. My parents made me go to a country fair there and it stank of horse shite everywhere. *shudder* Hate Keira Knightley too. Or at least, hate her acting skills.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on September 7th, 2005 12:28 pm (UTC)
To be fair, it's not so much Knightley I hate as Knightley-as-Liza-Bennett. It just doesn't work. She's a Lydia, for crying out loud.

Ahh! Blood Tests! Woe and bad tidings!
Ok, they're not that bad, but I'm scared of them since they tried to stab my arm off last time.

P&P = even more woe. Just stick to Colin Firth and... whatever-her-name-is, I say.

Dude, you just described my bedroom. Yes, cutlery included.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on September 9th, 2005 11:17 am (UTC)
My mother made me laugh when I was getting it. This was Not Good. I got loads of tips from the doctor, who assumed I was going to do nursing initially.

Shite, what is her name? Her curly things were fake, that I do know. The Wonderbra parade, my dad calls that film.

But by choice, y'see.
