You're my pride and joy et cetera

Here's what's going down lately: I have a problem with my feet so I can't get an actual job until that is sorted out. So instead, I'm trying really hard to get into this life drawing class so I can keep busy, be off my feet and expaaand my creative horizons, or something. Hoping that comes through.

I think I forgot to mention this before, but The Boat That Rocked is an awesome movie, and everyone should see it when it comes out in America. It didn't get the best reviews because it doesn't really have, like, a STORY, per se. It's basically just a couple of hours about the antics of a bunch of people on a boat who play awesome music from the 60's on a pirate radio show, but those people also happen to be made up of Nick Frost, Bill Nighy, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Rhys Ifans, Chris O'Dowd, Rhys Darby AND MANY MORE. I found it really charming and genuinely funny, mostly because of the characters and the overall sentiment. Anyway, awesome movie, go see it.

Aw, bad feet, BAD. Good luck with the drawing class, though, that should be fun and interesting.

I like antics. Especially the antics of British people. Specifically the ones that you listed.

Oh yes. I pretty much went for the cast and was not let down. The idea of having that group of people together is like a dream, and that's pretty much how it plays out.

Well of course I'm seeing that. I'm practically contractually obligated to Nick Frost and Simon Pegg. Just wish there was some Rickman : (

Sucky about your feet. Good thing that it didn't happen overseas. On second thought, you might have been able to get it tended to for free over there.

The part Rickman would be most likely to play was filled by Jack Davenport and Kenneth Branagh. Sorry Alan!

It actually started last year, and then it went away and came back before I left. It definitely made the field trips hard, because shopping and museums are the absolute worst with this condition cause the pain grows the more I stand still. I also felt bad cause I had to stop and sit down a lot, which probably held people up. I could barely walk by the end of spring break! I don't care much now cause I got through it all and got to see some awesome things. My insurance over there didn't cover it (and they'll only give the most basic treatment to non-citizens). This is my first time seeing a specialist. It's a big old icky situation, but I hope it's something that can be fixed.
