The Wasp Factory

I finally won – Captain Suave!

Well it took a few days but eventually I did it – I won Captain Suave. Phew… now you try it!

Fittingly (you’ll see why after you play the game) I also saw King Kong today. Not a bad film, not bad at all. I personally didn’t get all emotional at the end (no, seriously) although many in our party did. The rest just enjoyed the comedic moments – some very funny running-away-from-dinosaur-action to enjoy. And the whole thing is, of course, fantastically well made as you’d expect from Peter Jackson.

I also finally finished reading The Wasp Factory this morning. It’s the next book I have to do a presentation in English about (sometime in February) and it was really was quite enjoyable, though there’s a lot less obvious things to say than about A Clockwork Orange at first glance. Essentially it’s a more fun book – gruesome killings and ‘the big twist’ at the end which I won’t spoil, but it does put everything you’ve just read in a new light. I actually feel a bit bad now because I am going to have to ruin the ending for my class. Oh well.

Got lots and lots of work to do over the holidays sadly. It’s all planned in Outlook and as long as I stick roughly to schedule I’ll be OK… got thrown off course by the long film today though

Oh and finally – a personal pledge to Josie: new nickname each day. And that’s a promise.

    I consider than an achievement enough, yes. Because for days I kept dying just before the end.

  5. Alex Newman says:

    I saw King Kong too. I thought it was pretty good, but you’re right, that scene at the end is too emotional. They had to have that ending though it could have been slightly less corny.

    Oh no, Prof. Lovely was eaten, you have failed.
