The film was really very faithful to the book, and as I expected, had me in tears. It took me a week to recover from the novel, but thankfully it's taken just 30 minutes to recover from the film... perhaps because I've already shed the week of tears initially (so it's really nothing new, just reinvigorated). I don't quite know why it always makes me so emotionally distraught. I suppose it's because I'm getting near werewolf season. It doesn't help that I knew about the film before reading the novel and always pictured W.P Inman as Jude Law either. I suppose it just touches a chord with me... that sad hopeless romantic part, not to mention the pacifist.
I also sent Sheena a letter and went for a walk with Nick, so that took a while. Now that I've seen both films and read both novels I should be able to write the full 2000 words required as opposed to finishing a paragraph or two and freezing up on the other topics.
I can't believe it's already almost four in the afternoon. I know the film was two and a half hours, but I did actually get up early. I suppose I'll have to write it tomorrow then. Oh dear - I meant to get this all out of the way, but now I haven't. My poor boys are waiting for me on the ABC store shelf, just begging to be bought - and I've spent two and a half weeks dawdling.
On that subject - Ioan Gruffudd was on Rove Live! last night, actually in the studio, and he did that excellent tongue trick of his. It was hilarious. One of the things that amused me most is that he seemed so amused to be doing it. He was so funny and sweet - but he was only on for 10 minutes, if that, and no information as to if any more HHs are coming. His hair was dyed jet black, I wasn't sure I liked it, but hearing him speak with his normal voice was just lovely... I have a thing for Welsh accents. James Marsters (Spike from Buffy and Angel) was on too, and that guy's totally insane. He seems really sweet, but insane.
