A/N: I WRITE TOO MANY OF THESE. I don’t even know why because lately I have legitimate assignments and reading to do so! Maybe I will take a break once I post the second part of this. Also everyforever  should write more, she really should. All mistakes are my own, none of this is true

Queen of attention to detail

Look! This is me posting more and at a regular rate! Isn't it exciting?! Except my friend's list always seems so dead and lifeless and meh. COME BACK TO MEEEE, PEOPLE WHO ARE NO LONGER HERE FOR WHATEVER REASON. Anyway! This weekend I went to the Cheltenham Literary Festival which, I know, sounds lame since most of the people I know have wristbands from Reading and Glastonbury as opposed to 'Literature Festival 2010' book bags but that's just the kind of person I am, DEAL WITH IT. I saw a couple of young, up and coming authors speak as well as PHILIP PULLMAN (who you should know is one of my favourite authors ever. EVER) and Germaine Greer (she spoke more about biodiversity than she did feminism which was disappointing but she was still so interesting and tremendously likeable even though large parts of the media probably still paint her as this abbrasive man-hater). Also saw Martin Amis who was a complete dick and made this random generalisation about Islam which he then linked to female circumcision... something I know is considered by the religion to be deplorable. I hate when people in positions of such great influence - especially writers - are so insistently ignorant. Well, apart from that it was fun timez - Cheltenham is legit a ghost town though - DO NOT RECOMMEND.

If you could read only one book for the rest of all eternity - what would it be?



I want to be a lot more responsible about my TV-watching because I have a list of sooo many things I want to see and usually I'll watch like, 2 episodes and then give up OR I'll end up completely spoiling myself for a show without having watched a minute of it. BUT NO MORE, MY FRIENDS. I am sticking to a strict regiment from now on!!! With that: I've almost finished season 1 of The Good Wife. Collapse )
