Argh!! Just finished watching the last episode of one of my favourite TV series ever – Spooks (a BBC series). It is very sad that it has come to an end after 10 wonderful (and mostly really short) series but it is better to have a planned departure and end the series while it is on a high than to have some TV boss kill it due to dropped ratings and leave the loyal viewers without closure. I am gonna miss it and hope to soon find another good spy drama filled with intrigue.
Last night I went with friends to Full Stop Cafe in Parkhurst and what fun!! We went early, 6pm, so that we could be home early but had such a blast that we only left after 23:30, the last people to leave. So much for an early night. We didn’t even realise that the place had emptied out and it was so busy earlier that we couldn’t even find a spot to sit outside in the garden. Full Stop has such great memories as it used to be in Melville, way back when we were all in Varsity. It was a fabulous evening with great friends and special memories and the food was good but the crème brulée dessert was absolutely exquisite.
Watched the movie, The girl with the dragon tattoo, yesterday after work. It was good but I prefer the Swedish version of 2009. The one thing that annoyed me was the accents, the lack of continuity in it and the fact that it seemed that everyone from the same family had a different accent – for the rest it was good.
What fun! Bought the Adele, live at the Royal Albert hall, blu-ray and really enjoyed the performance. The venue was majestic, the performance great and the emotion at the end was heartfelt so I really enjoyed the concert. Would love to watch a concert in a venue like that so have decided to put it on my wish list for my trip to New York/London next year.
Went to see Sherlock Holmes 2 and what fun!! I loved the script – so very witty – and Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr just have such great chemistry together. Nearly killed myself laughing at all the very comical outfits and disguises of Downey in the film. Was very surprised to see the woman from The girl with the dragon tattoo trilogy, Swedish actress Noomi Rapace, in the film. My favourite scene was the gun shooting slow-motion action scene in the forest which reminded me a lot of The Matrix lobby shooting scene of Neo and Trinity where they make mincemeat of the security guards. The slow motion of bullets flying and trees exploding was just too great. Very entertaining movie!!
