These days wear on...

1. John Simm didn't get nominated for the Best Actor BAFTA this year. I'd hoped he would get the second nomination, and then, of course, win the award - since his performance as Sam is one of the best performances I have ever seen on television - and is likely to remain so in the years to come.


As much as I dislike the concept of certain scenes in the finale, John made them amazing to watch. The graveyard scene? The transfer form finding scene? I have a visceral reaction to them. Sam's pain is so real, so palpable. And that was John - not the writing - John.


I really wish John had been given the recognition of brilliance in what was a gruelling, complex role. All of those lines, all of that emotion - all of it. He succeeded in bringing a Sam to the screen that was likable, despite various unlikable traits, that you followed and believed in. It wasn't easy and yes, an award is essentially trivial, but it's the very least he deserves.

All of that work. Fuck.

2. I'm a little bit in love with House and Wilson's friendship in the second season of House M.D. Wilson's all protective and knowing and House actually listens to him (completely disregards what he's saying, but listens to him), and yeah, I think they're great.

3. Work was especially difficult today. Apparently it was only Tuesday. Tomorrow, we're doing a couple of Easter things and the usual, then on Thursday, it's like Easterpalooza. And there is no school on Friday, or Monday, which suits me fine.

It's not that I don't like my job, because I mostly do. It's just that teaching really takes it out of you and you grab those public holidays whilst you can. I have all kinds of assessment stuff I've been doing this week - individual testing, and the thing is, 5 year olds can't do independent work --- so it's been tough.
