I've seen several movies of late: The Hunger Games - not bad. Went with a bunch of teenagers to a cinema filled with teenagers unable to quietly watch a movie. Lots of people hissing "Be quiet, "Shut up" and humphing at said noisemakers in the back row! Funny. I found the books fascinating with a modern, reworked 1984 theme. Quite scary if you think about where society is heading though, so much violence.
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (for the elderly and beautiful). Loved it. Not quite as funny as I expected - a bit more real I suppose with its themes, but set against the craziness of modern India. I was happy to be watching a film packed with English actors I adore.
And then Moneyball on dvd. A good 'ol American baseball flick. I should have been eating pumpkin pie and drinking budweiser as I watched, but I didn't want to be distracted from Brad Pitt! Good eye candy as the saying goes.
I also read The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman. A great read about the seige of Masada in Israel by the Romans, told from the perspective of 4 Jewish women. Now I've started The Paris Wife by Paula McLain. The story of Ernest Hemingway's first wife.
I feel as though I've journeyed around the world without the jet lag!
