While I should have been writing one of the two papers that are due in the coming week, I took a break and watched a movie… along with my knitting, of course! Seriously- how do people watch television without something to do with their hands? I’m still working on the lace scarf for JA. I was watching The Oxford Murders… it was good- better than I expected, actually. An interesting film about, well, murders happening at Oxford (no kidding). The premise is a grad student and a professor trying to figure out who the murderer is based on math and logic. The ending was a little depressing- it tied up all of the loose ends, but it definitely wasn’t a “they lived happily ever after” kind of ending. For those of you who watch Downton Abbey, Mr. Carson is the police officer- it’s very funny to watch him as his personality in this film is very different from in DA! Mr. Ollivander from Harry Potter also plays one of the main roles. The entire movie, in fact, I was trying to figure out where I knew actors from… some pretty big names in there!
I forgot to mention in yesterday’s post that I volunteered at my university’s book sale last weekend. Payment? My choice of any books at wanted from the sale. Pretty awesome payment if you ask me. I picked up a few really interesting books and I can’t wait to read them. Now if only all of the schoolwork would go away so I’d actually have the time and energy!
As a personal blogging challenge, I’m writing a blog post every day for the month of November as a part of NaBloPoMo (NAtional BLOg POsting MOnth). This is day 2!
