World Book Night | My Experience & Giveaway Winners http://bit.ly/145vbyr (by robotnic)
Third place in the film quiz tonight. Won 2001 on BluRay. Pretty good.
Why does everyone on Game of Thrones speak through gritted teeth?
Today was World Book Night. It was fun. It’s nice to have an excuse to chat to strangers, in a way. That sentence shouldn’t sound so weird.
What did you do with your Tuesday?
April isn’t over yet?!
This seems like a very long month. It’s also going to be a long week. Today I met my friend Graham for lunch and we tore Oblivion apart, then I joined the university library (something I didn’t do as an actual Masters student) to do some book research, went to yoga, and hand dinner with Evan then drinks with Evan and Paul. A day well spent.
Tomorrow I have lots of work to do, a sister to meet for lunch, books to distribute for World Book Night, a meeting to have, and an event to live-tweet. Oh, then a film quiz to attend. Told you.
I’m afraid it’s not looking so good for BEDA this week, you guys. I mean, I can’t even imagine how boring this must be.
But anyway, I hope you’re having a good start to the week – if you’re still reading this.
I’ve spent the past couple of hours updating my website. It now has an updated About Me page, a new Review Policy, and I’ve finally added an up-to-date 52 Books page for my 2013 reading challenge.
Having gone through and added star ratings, I realise I’ve read a whole lot of 3 star books this year. I’m pretty excited about the next few on my to-read list, so I hope they will bump up the average.
I’ve been staring at this for far too long and with far too little to say. Off to yoga, see you later.

I’m hitting the wall later than usual this year, you guys.
Today Evan and I went out for a fry-up (my second at the same place in as many weeks). It was glorious.
The sun has finally come out and it’s totes spring weather. Well, it broke 10 Celsius. That’s pretty exciting after the rotten winter we’ve endured. The population of Glasgow has tripled in the past fortnight. Everyone is either pasty or has tanned up for the occasion. My home.
Other than that, I spent most of the evening cleaning and making chilli. We also watched Little Big League, which was cute and typically cheesy. The 90s, man. Women did not matter.
Scott Paterson aka Luke from Gilmore Girls was a baddie in it. He looked exactly the same 20 years ago as he does today, save for some blonde highlights. What a guy.
What have you been watching this weekend?
A movie night in tweets.
It’s Terminator 2 movie night! Yass.
The kid who played John Connor is /terrible/ at ADR. @stevenraymorris
@StevenRayMorris: @robotnic are you saying he should be terminated?
@StevenRayMorris: @robotnic great Aliens reference.
@StevenRayMorris Hasta la vista, in camera sound.
“Like a black highway at night, we were in unchartered territory.” Worst. Simile. Ever. #T2
The end of T2 is basically the end of Lord of the Rings, no?
I stand by it.

Evan and I finally caught up on Game of Thrones this evening, and I’m getting keen to move on to the next book (A Feast For Crows).
We also watched Batchelorette. Yes, it’s another wedding comedy and yes, it’s been absolutely buried. But man, did they bury the wrong one. I’ve seen two that made me want to give up watching films for a lifetime, and this one was great. It starts Kirsten Dunst, who I can’t stand, and I loved it. High praise right? Lizzy Caplan needs to be in way more movies.
Tomorrow is T2 night. Aww yeah.
Recommend me a film, please.
