General Ramblings (inc. month-old Robin Hood BBC spoilers for ep 3x09)

June 20th, 2009 (09:28 pm)

Anyone who agrees with Sally Sparrow that "sad is happy for deep people" and who doesn't mind being spoilered for a month-old episode of the BBC's 2006 Robin Hood series (3x09, A Deadly Deal) should watch this, because it makes me bawl every time I see it.

You don't need to have ever seen RH to understand it. It's an amalgamation of all the 3x09 scenes between two people.

He is Guy of Gisborne, she is a random prisoner in the castle dungeons for refusing to marry any of the men her father chose for her. Isabella is Gisborne's sister and Sheriff of Nottingham. That should be all you need to know to follow. The main girl has never been in the show before so it's not like there's a long or complicated history you need to understand.

I think this is honestly some of the most beautifully acted and written television I've seen in a long time.


On a less depressing note, I have a job interview next week! It's only delivering catalogues and selling make-up, nothing much, but I really need a job for the summer so I hope it goes well.

It's so difficult trying to get hired as a uni student. I can't get a job in Lampeter as it's tiny so for starters there are very few jobs ever going, but I'm also not there for a huge chunk of the year, and I can't get a job here because I'm only here for three months over the summer.

However, even if I don't get a job it looks set to be a good summer - I'm spending September in Russia, volunteering in orphanages, schools, centres for deaf children etc, plus weekends off to travel around the country. I'm so nervous but so glad I finally got around to doing this.

I hope you're all well!

who: the things you've seen

The fact that you're going to be spending your summer in Russia doing anything even remotely other than being a complete tourist and visiting all the gorgeous landmarks and buildings and basically just wandering around for months looking at pretty, old things is already more than enough to get me to call you a better woman than me.
But to spend your summer in Russia helping orphans and deaf kids puts you on like, Saint level.
That is awesome.

ALSO. Have you checked your lj inbox lately? No pressure to accept or anything, it's just that we're wanting to get a definite yes or no from everyone we invited to the comm before we start up officially tomorrow and I know sometimes people don't get emails when they get comm invites, so, you may not have noticed it.
