"I'm open to most genres. I like to play around with genre though...28 Days later was a Zombie Movie with no Zombies in it in my opinion; Slumdog was a Fairy Tale in genre terms but there are moments of real darkness in it; 127 Hours was an Action Movie about a guy who couldn't move... Trance is supposed to be a heist movie or an amnesia movie, or a femme fatale movie. but it's all of those things and none of those things really. the genre hooks are macguffins that give us a route into exploring ideas about perception, reality and madness."
You really should read the whole thing.

...and then found it in my coat pocket.
What is heartening is the absolute lack of surprise either Gra or Aoife expressed upon hearing the news. They know my ways.

Definition of SHOEHORN
1 : to force to be included or admitted
2: to force or compress into an insufficient space or period of time : squeeze
Examples of SHOEHORN1 : A parking garage has been shoehorned between the buildings.
2 : She's trying to shoehorn a year's worth of classes into a single semester.
3 : I don't know how they managed to shoehorn everyone into that little room.
Less frequent useage:
- It is amazing how Lucy manages to shoehorn 42 references into one essay that she wrote on the fly.
- Well what do you know! Two days before a deadline and Lucy is furiously shoehorning incompatible paragraphs into some semblance of an essay.
- How many times can I shoehorn some Negroponte references into this essay to appear smart?! Lucy pondered passionately.

It was my five year anniversary with Waterford Library last week. We're very happy together, thank you very much, and never let the sun go down on our anger. Thanks for all the anniversary presents, you dilatory, forgetful sluts. Whats the traditional gift for five year anniversarys? Why, wood! You know what's wooden? Boxes of wine! Get your cash out, folks.

I would say I spend about an hour-and-a-half to get ready for something that’s important, because, of course, I’m texting, or getting water, or changing the music, or getting a cocktail… It’s a ritual, getting ready.
Realistically, there is very little difference between me and Dita Von Teese. Sure, yeah, her hair is darker than mine, but besides that: SOUL SISTERS.

Did you know, I can't listen to this song without imagining I am watching the penultimate scene in an eighties movie set somewhere urban? Maybe Tom Cruise is in it? It's a montage? There's probably driving and rain involved?
I'm not saying this is a movie I've seen, just that I have a very very shallow imagination here by the way.
