I’ve just returned from the Alps - why is it that lots of interesting things always happen whilst I’m away, yet when I am in the country, it’s as dull as beans.
So, what have I missed? Well, Obama made an appearance on Jay Lenno (in the States), two planes have crashed, Jade Goody has passed away, Apple have announced the iPhone’s 3.0 software and there has been an amazing episode of Dollhouse (which I highly recommend if you haven’t yet seen it). I think Barack’s appearance on US entertainment TV was a brilliant move, cementing him as an extraordinary speaker and once again confirming his commitment to his country. I haven’t tracked all of the changes he’s made so far, but his closure of Guantanamo and reversal of Bush’s ban on stem cell research is the right way forward. Another 3 years of this is a needed step forward.
More importantly, of course, is what happened in the latest episode of Dollhouse. If you haven’t watched it yet, then you should. It’s about a secret company that caters to the rich and well-connected, providing an exclusive service to make ends meet. The latest episode sees the plot diverge with a number of unexpected twists - with another 15 episodes to go in this season alone, it’s going to make for a fantastic way to procrastinate through exams.
I skied over 270km last week (according to the cool lift pass online tracking thing), so I’m pretty shattered. We went to the Dolomiti Superski area, which has over 1200km of skiable terrain. It’s MASSIVE. We spent a couple of days skiing with some of my Dad’s friends, one of which plays harp for Goldfrapp. My exams start on the 21st April, so the rest of the holiday is going to be full of revision. Blehrr.
I’ll try and blog again soon. I’ve missed a lot of things, but I’m still recovering.
