Ooooh an English language examiner. Now I feel under pressure to speak(type) properly.
Don't worry - I only do a couple of sessions per month and am "switched off" now. Just don't point out all my mistakes... how embarrassing!
It's 13:20 now and I'm at my regular office job where I work for an import company. It's a gorgeous crisp, cold day and as I look out of the window I can see deep blue sky & snow-topped mountains. I've just translated a bulletin from the German Chamber of Commerce and am now preparing to switch languages for this afternoon's meeting with a French supplier. Feel like Kate in WOTY Yeah, sure - I wish
You sound like WOTY! Sounds like a fun job -- I was going to school to be an interpreter. But with all the millions of things I want to do, that's taken a back burner... I should consider it again though because I do want to learn more languages and well, how else can I put it to good use? Right now it looks chilly outside. The sky is clear, which is GREAT because it's been cloudy the past few days -- snowing and everything. I'm drinking a cup of coffee and eating dry shredded wheat (milk expired). Yummy.

It's cold out here, with a little bit of snow on the ground. I backed out of a parking spot today and bumped a car that was backing out across the way. That scene in BUB where Susan is trying to pull out of that space reminds me of my driving, unfortunately.

Ouch, poor car! I see the scene before my very eyes. I've become a rather good driver over the summer, but with the way Buffalo gets hammered with snow from the damn lake effect (we have about 1.5 ft already), I'm going to have to learn a whole different type of driving. Makes me wish that I'd started driving at 14. Ah well. It's clear now, at least. Yey! I've just about finished my dance. I have to study for four tests (Psych, French, Spanish, Math). I'm running on two hours of sleep and I have to finish 'A Christmas Carol' for stupid College English. I'm just rambling off my schedule now-I think I'll take a nap.
Yes, I wouldn't have gotten any rest knowing this post wasn't edited. ;D
LOL it's become an obsessive-compulsive thing. MUST HAVE EDITING!!
The snow is melting. So awesome. Except I wanted to go sledding. I haven't done it in years. A friend of mine went sledding only she used it as a snowboard -- not sure how well I would function using a sled in that way but... worth a try. I'm sure I'll end up on my ass or my head. I drive a stick shift so it's much easier to get around on ice and snow. I actually think it's kind of fun. I like to slam on my breaks in half-empty parking lots that are covered with ice. But I've been driving for... 9 years. So you little ones, don't try that at home ;D
Wonderful icon Isabelle! Did you make it yourself?
I'm just running a bath and getting ready to go out tonight. Been round my mum's most of the day, and when I came home the post had been, including State of the Union, which I'd pre-ordered from play, though it states it's not out til Monday. So that was a lovely surprise. I shall watch it after my bath while curling my hair and doing my nails! What a lovely afternoon!
Judy: All has changed on the Proboard....Not sure my reply got posted. Anyway, thanks for the notice, Evelien. I'm unable to access it. I can watch the clip of the woman flipping through the Kate books and talking about fashion - one of which is Rebel Chic :-)

CFK: So we all heard about Betty Bacall, I guess? Pretty rotten news, especially following so closely on Robin Williams. What a lousy week. Watched To Have and Have Not as tribute tonight.

Fran: I think the problem with actresses such as Bette Davis and Joan Crawford was that they played SEX SYMBOLS and did woman movies. They were sexy in their day and were the main love interests in the movie. When they got older those woman type movies were dead

Fran: Bette Davis made very different movies from Katherine Hepburn Hepburn. Bette was sexy. So was Crawford. They made woman type movies. Hepburn was the masculine feminist. When their looks went, so did their careers. Hepburn was never that type.

Angela: Personally, I like Bette Davis best she was "a woman for all season" she didn't mince words she did the role without having to apologize for creativity she musters to do the work. Also, she could look different without worrying about her appearance.

Angela: Personally, I felt Bette Davis was the "woman for all seasons" since she used all her creativity to make her artwork. As for Katherine she seems to sound the same - her voice didn't change. Granted she was good in Shakespeare which I give credit.

SJS: Bette had a mostly latent tendency to ham, and she admitted it. She really appreciated a director who could get her to tone it down. She lost respect for a director who would let her get away with it. But she took chances that most actresses wouldn't.
