Omigawd, I haven't updated since MARCH! But I'm always on here, reading up on my Friends list... Please forgive me!

So uuuuuuurm, what's been happening? Well, I graduate on Friday, which means we've all gotta sit around for a few hours in silly clothes and hats (I shall be wearing a kilt underneath it, just as a small form of rebellion). Mind you, those gowns are so big, I wonder if I'd have space to sneak in a magazine... Also, cos we'll all be sitting alphabetically, other than Asti, I'll be sitting next to someone who I really can't stand. But this'll be the last time I see this person, so yay!

Have seen 'War of the Worlds' twice now, still can't decide whether I like it or not. Maybe having reas the book influences me too much, I dunno. But still, I remember reading this interview with director Steven Spielberg, and he said soe of the stupidest things:

"We didnt wanna set it in Victorian England, as no one would be able to relate to that." Huh? Heaven forbid we stretch our minds a little. Am surprised people enjoyed the Lord of the Rings/Star Wars films, what with them being set in funny lands and different times, eh? He was probably worried about the recent remake of 'The Time Machine', which bombed. NOT because it was set in ye olden days - it was just a rubbish film.

"We didn't want the aliens to be Martians like they are in the book, because it's been scientifically proven that life of that kind does not exist on Mars." Tch! Scientific 'facts' change like the weather! Can't believe he'd say that.

Oh, and the aliens looked cute/silly, when they were meant to be tentacled brains, that couldn't really move properly. But anyway, now I'm just getting too nit-picky, but still. If you wanna know the PROPER story, without reading the book, go listen to Jeff Wayne's *THE* War of the Worlds musical version,is all there :)

Here endeth my journal and rant!

Could just see me dropping my PSP as I go up to collect something! No pockets on me kilt either!

You mean we weren't doing Morse Code anyway? ;)

Hmmm, well maybe we should bring in a card game or something!

When I graduated, people were passing around "orange juice" as we sat there on the stage (they were clearly screwdrivers). Nice, that. ;)

Kinda unrelated, sorry!

Hey, sorry for ambushing your LJ like this. I found you through the Middlesex Uni community and saw you've been studying at Cat Hill. I've applied for the VCD-Graphics BA course there and have an interview next week. Travel's likely to be a bit of a pain for me as I'm going to stay at home, so I need to see if other parts of uni life there will make up for the hassle! If you don't mind sparing a few minutes to tell me what you thought of your time there I'd be really really grateful! I'm at jetblack [at] gmail [dot] com. Again, sorry for the random post - hope your grad went well!
