Saw the movie ‘Carol’ last night. Top-notch film-making, and Cate Blanchett is sure to get an Oscar for her title role. It’s the story of a married woman (with a child) falling in love with a shop-girl. We then see how they both suffer socially for their relationship. It’s a period piece set in 1950s America (or around then) and done beautifully. Warning: this film is quite distinct from the classic book upon which it’s based. 9 out of 10 from me.
Just heard that the UK wastes more food than any other European country. 15 MILLION tonnes a year. Strikes me as too much. Supermarkets are the main offenders, of course.
Shut up, Dalton. Tell us about your writing! Alright, alright. I’m all but halfway with my new novella. Should be done by end of Jan 2016, I reckon. And off to London to see a publisher this week – they seem interested in taking on Lifer, which would be cool. Finally, I’ll be putting out another short story collection with Kristell Ink next year. So plenty busy… and then I’m doing my PhD too, and getting married. Sold my house. All change!
