So after yesterday's desert I have to make three posts today at least.

First I got a mod's choice win at [livejournal.com profile] bones_stills for this icon.



That was a nice way to start the day. There are some really great icon makers in there so that was a real joy.

Next I caught up on Got to Dance which is my current crack viewing. It was the last of the auditions last night, followed by narrowing down the 200 shortlist to 28. That was so difficult they had to have a dance off between 8 acts for 4 places. Everyone was good and it came down to two body poppers who had to go through as a duo because they couldn't pick.  My favourite was a bollywood dance group. Such energy! I know nothing about dance and can't do it so it really is just mindless drivel to me, but I always cry when someone goes through.

Talking of mindless drivel I finally watched Ghost Writer. OMG. Alan Cumming was clearly mentally challenged when he directed this film and David Boreanaz had nothing better to do.Suffering Succotash or The Ghost Writer )
 


It's a lovely sunny day and I am about to have a sandwich before embarking on my Seeley in Season 3 post. Wheeee - the energy she is with me. Or is that the Force? Also out for a meal with friends again this week and I have posted a card to the daughter of even more friends whose birthday is tomorrow. I even remembered to put a stamp on.

I watched The King's Speech this week which I will say things about behind the cut in case people would rather not be spoiled.

Sandy Denny today.





I watched Shadowlands this morning. It was good, understated, British fare and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm not a great fan of Attenborough films, but he reined himself in. Anyway, I thought this song matched the mood. Hopkins and Hardwick seem so effortless on screen. He's a good Watson is Hardwick and Hopkins is good in everything. I also thought Debra Winger made a good fist of Joy. The Oxford Dons were suitably dotty and shut off from the real world. Later, I shall be having a Season 3 of Bones evening.

The parental phone saga continues. I am going down tomorrow to see if I can sort it out. The helpline advice consisted of unplugging the base for half an hour and taking the batteries out. I could have said that!  I can see it going back to the shop in the afternoon!

The second bud on the Amaryllis is out and looking good. The heating is on and the sun is setting. It has been quite a bright day for a change. Coffee now.
