Yeah, preparing myself a bit for the coming school year. Start of classes is moved to next week because of the swine flu virus. Last I heard, there are some 26 cases reported here in the Philippines. (Couldn't wait to visit the library HMP!)
It's the second verse of the first chapter in the Book of Ecclesiastes, one of the two faves of mine in the Bible (the other being the Book of Revelations). "Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, vanity of vanities and all is vanity." Goes well with my belief that everything here on earth is nothing but mere trifles.
I did that for a while (when i moved from athens to patras i used to pen some letters but i got bored very quickly i am afraid ).
hehehe are you sure you are writting a letter (and not a novel)?
I think it's he guqin but I'm not really sure...
and you mentioned something I rarely notice, but that makes a biiiig deal of difference: acting. (in the case of BSG, the dramma is intense, because the plot is more toward tragicity than "happy elves in a holodeck" as would Lemony Snickets say ... even so, it is to be remarked that acting in BSG is to be considered. in Star Trek, it's almost comedy ... -- and not always meant to.)
one of the brightest things I think about BSG is the space simulation: there are moments of complete silence in space, and moments with communication noises and internal machinery noises, but it portrays in a very efficient way the silence that there is "up there" ...
yep, this is probably one of the few series I'd actually wish to buy, even with its "sins". (I wouldn't buy happily none of the Star Trek series ... & I used to watch them. Specially Voyager. but not even that one is worth having at home .. as tribute to good moments, as you say, in a quite distictly way of understanding the act of choosing stuff to buy )
I decided not to do anything. I think there will be cake, from friends, and from family, in different occasions of the weekend
I like BSG ... I don't remember to have watched it all at tv, because we ran out of cable, here at home. (Money "crisis" ...) Did you buy the whole series? (I've been watching some fragments at youtube, but there's too little there. I think I watched the final episode, I'm not sure ...)
couldn't help taking a look at your conversation with Manolia, because of Battlestar Galactica ...
oh blast mey! shew!!
