It’s back to normal gloom today
After a cheering-upping sunshiny day yesterday, the sky is sulking again.
But I’m cheerful, having managed to back up everything on my laptop to a spare hard disk. This is a load off my mind after the fear of losing everything due to gremlins in the USB ports – a painful disease to which there is no known cure – or so says my tame 18-year-old genius at the local computer repairers.
A very Anglophone afternoon was passed on Thursday in the comfy-cozy little Cinema-on-the-Beach, watching Skyfall in VO (version originale, ie, in English with French subtitles) There was even free tea and digestive biscuits afterwards! The film could hardly have been more violent, or less feasible, yet it was also very funny. Daniel Craig was a different kind of gorgeous as James Bond – though I didn’t like his haircut – and Judi Dench excelled herself. The effects were superb and the opening sequence the best yet – more spectacular than the mini chase in the Italian Job. I wish I knew how to embed a video here.
