Lazy Sunday

Well today has been a lazy day. Not thinking about my course and doing my best to avoid the news since even here in the UK there is talk of the American Republican Primary and well it is embarrassing. So spent the morning lazing about and started with a long list of Bogart movies. First it was of course the Maltese Falcon. Great film and probably the movie that made me first fall for him. Sam Spade has always been a favorite then on to All Through the Night. Then it was a debate but had to watch the African Queen, great paring of Bogie and Katherine Hepburn. Of course the sweet Sabrina with Audrey and now on to High Sierra a great film. Then a break for Sherlock since I am quite addicted to it and well have a bit of a crush on Sherlock. Probably should have spent the day watching the Basil Rathbone movies since the new Sherlock will be on in a few, but was in more of a Bogart mood. So after Sherlock will watch the iconic Casablanca and remember the times grandmother and I would talk about the movie. The most memorable line had to be "If it's December 1941 in Casablanca, what time is it in New York?" It was released after Pearl Harbor but was filmed before it. Maybe that is what prompted a Bogart movie day. Miss grandmother more and more and I suppose it won't get better anytime soon.

Well have class tomorrow and then think tomorrow evening that it will be Errol Flynn. Then can work around into Sherlock with Basil Rathbone. Watch him as a villan then move on to him as the hero :) of course. Feel a Shakespeare weekend this weekend is coming. Have a good collection of King Lear with Lawrence Olivier, Richard III with Ian McKellen, The Merchant of Venice with Pacino as Shylock, Henry V with Kenneth Branagh always great with Derek Jackoby as the Chorus, Othello, Midsummer Nights dream, Much Ado about nothing a personal favorite, and Hamlet with David Tennant. There are a few others but think I can have a very busy weekend and indulge my Shakespeare fetish and best I do it on my own where I can avoid annoying others. Oh well. Still wishing I had seen Kevin Spacey as Richard III oh well. Oh Sherlock is about to start I am off to watch and get some sleep.
