FINALLY GOT MY COMPUTER BACK - AND RICHARD ARMITAGE!
Finally, the problem of my psychotic computer has been solved. It turns out that when Brighthouse brought over our new modem they were unaware that it worked as a router also and hooked it up to our old router. So, we had two routers and a schizoid computer. In fact two of them, actually three of them. No one expects the Spanish Inquisition. I am happy now. I can twitter again. I just read a tweet from someone who announced that she had burned her finger. You see how much I missed.
A SINGLE MAN
I couldn't wait to talk about "A Single Man." It was on cable the other night and we watched it - not at all what I expected. They made the film look like it really was from the sixties - not only the furniture and cars but something about the color of the film was completely different. And the sixties styles! It was fascinating to watch. Colin Firth was really quite good in this, but he is a wonderful actor anyway. I don't have the common reaction to him that most women obviously have - I am not attracted to him in "that way" - I know that's a great relief to LucyP.
But, I cried when that film was finished. Oh how my heart went out to that character, remembering how narrow minded people were back then, and they haven't changed a whole lot yet. He was great in this movie, could have easily won the Oscar last year too.
Some very good underwater shots of the guys too. My, my...
This music is Immortal Beloved, beautiful song also used in a Matthew Macfadyne Pride and Prejudice clip so I am partial to it.
THE REAL IMMORTAL BELOVED -
