I hath found a good cinema!

My life here is now complete. It plays the major movies, is only a 15-20 minute walk away, and has a constant student price of 5.90 quid, no matter what time, or what movie. That's about $8-9, so it's the same price as home. As long as I remember my student ID. So, saw "Munich" today. I really loved it. Speilberg does amazing things with camera movement and angles, and I think he represented both sides of the issue fairly. Some may disagree, but that's why there's free speech. Should it win Best Pic? I don't know. I haven't seen Good Night, and Good Luck, or Brokeback Mountain. Capote I think was good because of Philip Seymour Hoffman, but the film itself was okay. What I would prefer to win would be Crash, but maybe that's just because I love the screenplay so much. This isn't my official prediction, so don't hold me to it. You know I pick what I think will win, not necessarily I want to win.

The cinema is actually in a nice shopping centre, with a Border's, Sainsbury's (grocery store), and some other things. It even had a woman dressed in Victorian garb playing a piano. Oh, England.

Family is going to call soon, so I better wrap this up. Classes tomorrow, and I have to figure out how to get a ticket to this show I have to see, that's in Baron's Court. Ugh. Why couldn't I have gotten a closer theatre?

I always wanted to go into a little shop on Leather Lane and Clerkenwell. It was called "The Magic Shop," I think. I had a realization that there is a certain period of time where I look back at London with nostalgia. I'm actually really glad to be back. Do you grocer at Budgens? I need to make a Budgens facebook club. Oh, and, do get a tattoo at the "family business" tattoo parlor.
You missed the superbowl. However, the Steelers won.

So, don't you think it's about time for your platform 9.75 picture at King's Cross? Well. I threw away all your Chili b/c it expired last year and ate all your Ramen Noodles.
Did you resort to eating maggoty shrimp sandwiches yet?

I'm so positive.
