Life:
*2009 has been a better year for me than for a lot of people (and it turned out a lot better than I could imagine a year ago), not least financially. I'm trying not to get my hopes up about 2010, because that's the way I work.

*In the space of three weeks in december, there was a birth and a death in my extended family. I'm feeling happy and sad an tired about this.

Movies:
*I went to see Bright Star on Monday, and now I'm in love with Abbie Cornish's and Jane Campion's Fanny Brawne. I love how much of the first half of the film is about challenging the still-pervasive idea that Things That Men Do (here: writing poetry) automatically is of more value than Things That Women Do (here: sewing). And although I've known for more than twenty years when and how Keats died, I cried at the end, because his death broke Fanny's heart.

Books:
*I'm reading Jane Austen's The Watsons. The heroine is named Emma and I keep imagining her wearing a frilly pink dress and raising her eyebrows a lot.

Sort of related to That Show:
*The god's of "finding the episode with that particular guest-star" smiled at me the other night, when me and random family members decided to watch Lewis for the first time and it turned out to be the episode where Bradley James plays a student.
(I'm terribly amused about how Morse manages to screw things up even after his death.)

*General Arthuriana: Bibliotèque Nationale de France has an exhibition. Nice pictures.
