a little hyperbole

Just back from the cinema to see Stardust. I loved it... my pragmatic flatmate (of the emerald isle variety) on the other hand wasn't so convinced by the romanticglowingstarloveconqueringall nonsense. "Too much hyperbole" were her exact words. Personally I like a little hyperbole from time to time, though I'm glad real life isn't like that. Those witches were scary!
We did however enter into the spirit of adventure, rushing down the tallest cinema in the world to catch the last underground and then rushing back up again, rooting under chairs to the soundtrack of the cancan in search of pragmatist's gloves, until we realised that she hadn't actually brought them with her in the first place. So we legged it back down again and made it in time (just) to catch the last underground... Ah we do know how to spice up the mundane antics of normal life! And who needs to put the heating on in the flat when a little exercise is all one needs to keep warm!

*repeats andy's question...*

it has to be said, Dish, that you writing small posts like this makes me feel better about my very small blog posts! went to see Ratatouille the other day... it was really good.

No sillies! Monday night! Did no-one notice that I changed the post date and time since that first comment? ;P

You found the witches scary? I just found them gross... was almost a waste of a film given that Ms Pfeiffer was made up to look ugly for SO MUCH of it... *sigh* was hoping she would cut the star's heart out so she could get back to being totally beautiful again :-)

I was indeed scared! They reminded me of the witches from The Witches... I was young enough to be very very scared when that was first released! You though I suppose were not ;D Then again I am a bit of a wuss, I am ashamed to say I nearly fainted whilst watching Edward Scissorhands once!

Cineworld is huge, it's scary actually...
I loved Ratatouille (did you ever taste it? it's delicious), I was hungry during the whole movie!
