Mama says

My wonderful, amazing daughter is staying with me for a few days which is this week's excuse for not posting daily. Not only is she delightfully distracting me from all my routines and responsibilities, but she's also been hogging the laptop to write a couple of very good essays for university. I've been learning more than I ever knew I wanted to know about film analysis and New Media theory (eg. Heidegger gives me a headache). She's also making sure that we watch two movies that she feels I need to see. Last night it was The Royal Tenenbaums, tonight will be Napoleon Dynamite. I anticipate that by the end of the week I may have overdosed on pomo irony.

"Pomo irony rocks my freaking world" she says (after reading the above)

Also on the must-see (at some stage) list:
Tomorrow I'm off to Hamilton where I will talk to 5 year olds about poetry among other scintillating activities- I'll be back by Friday.

Pomo = post modern.

Who could think you under the table."

I think I would enjoy her take on two movies I saw recently at the Film Festival - Kung Fu Hustle and
Godzilla (where I was one of the very,very few women in the audience and at 38 one of the more aged! Not sure what this says about me?)
