Doing the chores

A slight breather in my workload these couple of days, which gives us the time to spend our evenings on household chores like laundering our bedsheets (we really should do it more often), bathing our cat and, er, taking gratuitous pictures of the cat.

Caught in light

I'm not complaining that I don't have enough work to do, but it's strange to be at so much of a loose end. I even had time on Sunday to see Thank You For Smoking, which not enough people in the audience seemed to laugh along with, but I personally chalk that up to a gross lack of a sense of irony in our national culture.

Speaking of national culture, did you get your tickets to the Singapore Theatre Festival yet? Faster go and buy!

Teehee, t'was a funny movie. Katie Holmes really sucked in it though, the reward was seeing her whacked by a tree at the end of the movie.

I didn't think Thank You For Smoking was that hot. I read a review which described it as ineffective because "committed to equal opportunity attack" and I think that sums up the problem with it quite nicely. With the business lobbyists it does show-not-tell and then with the liberals it does seriously heavy tell without a lot of show, so you get mixed messages about what you're supposed to be gleaning from it. At least that's how I felt. I'll grant quite a lot of it was reasonably funny but it could have been so much funnier.

However I like to think I have upheld the Singaporean cause by being practically the only person in a London cinema to giggle consistently throughout the film adaptation of Michel Houellebecq's Atomised.
