Due South

(no subject)

So Sweeney Todd was great, as everyone told me it would be. But after watching it, I thought that the makers of the Harry Potter movies would benefit from seeing the movie.

Firstly, Toby's hair? That is what you would call messy and unable to lie flat on his head.

Secondly, as I was watching the movie, it struck me that Helena Bonham Carter would make a wonderful Bellatrix. So why, exactly, did I hate Bellatrix in HP5?

I hope everyone had a nice New Year's. For the first time in memory (and I do mean that, since I always stayed up until midnight, even when I was a kid), I spent my asleep. Apparently, I'm not quite over whatever sickness that downed me over Christmas. I'd feel worse about it, but... I liked my eleven hours of sleep.

Anyway, resolutions. Which I'm sharing with you so that I might have someone to answer to.

1) Keep my place neater and/or more organized.
2) Replying to e-mails and other correspondence in a more timely fashion.
3) Write. Not "write more" since just about any amount of writing would be "more" than what I did in 2007. But in concrete terms, 1 drabble (or drabble-like thing) and 1 fic of a more substantive nature every friggin' month. Plus work on your longer, unpublished stuff, like last year's nano.
