I have to say, it really did not dissappoint, it was a beautifully made and brilliantly edited movie, with a perfect soundtrack and great direction, I am glad Chris Weitz got it right with this one. It was also pretty faithful to the story by Stephenie Meyer despite a few minor edits. The best part of the film for me was Taylor Lautner's portrayal of Jacob Black, which I thought was really true to how Jacob acts in the book, and made his part of the story more important. It made the wolves look pretty good, even though there were all the cool vampires. It was good to have Lautner to look at rather than just Rob Pattinson, because as much as I love him those amber eyes are pretty creepy.
But less of my I-want-to-review-films attitude, back to the point. Back to a lovely apostrophe I saw the other day. Recipes in a newspaper, font really rather big.

I also managed to pick up some really good value fairy lights for my bedroom from Trago Mills in Falmouth, the best shop in Fal! I'm looking forward to start making some christmas related things - cards, decorations,paper chains. It's gonna be a good one this year, I can feel it!

Life outside of my studio has been just so, nothing too exciting happening but it's life isn't it. Seen a few friends, done a few errands, same old same. Watched the movie Year One with my flatmates the other day, which was mediocre, but Michael Cera who I love had some brilliant one liners, made me happy.
Another thing I haven't mentioned in this blog yet, seeing as it is called thoughts and observations, is something I like to observe all the time - spelling. It's become a little bit of an obsession for me, which is probably bad considering my boyfriend is dyslexic, but I keep wanting to correct bad spelling that I see all over the place. Here's a few examples.
A category label on a shelf in my university library, in the section refering to folklore...
"399 - Customs & Folk Law"
A sign in my university cafe...
"Hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmellows"
My friend from uni writing something on her hand...
Another friend who works in a bar showed me his promo posters...
"A great experiance"
there's just a few examples. You might think it's a bit of an obsession, which it really is, and I do sometimes feel bad for pointing them out. But as trivial as it is, it doesn't half get to me! Although I do enjoy it when these signs become humorous because of their downfalls!
8th Feb 2010 - Just realised since writing this blog I have infact changed the name of the blog to drawings and spelling mistakes, purely because of how much each amuses me :)

can't seem to get the uploader to work for me today so it'll be no pictures for this blog :( I would write about a few little dramas but there isn't really much exciting to say! I will say about my friend though, who recently lost a parent in a very sudden way, and I am so proud of him for coping so well with everything that has been happening, and it really puts it into perspective how amazing humans are at coping with things. It makes you realise how lucky you are to have people in your life.

Whilst in Fal I went into an antique shop at the top of the town and found a lovely (if not slightly mildewed) copy of Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne, adorable.
