Help wanted - Many positions available

I was getting off the elevator of my apartment building, rushing to get home when I saw this ad, and I laughed. I mean who in their right mind is gonna respond to it when it sounds so very, extremely dubious. Did you notice that the word 'free' was repeated twice? Light house keeping? Relative to what? Slaved labour? Then, there's the part about giving 'personal assistance' to the Professor and immediately this picture came to my mind.

Feeling sea sprays on the sea shore!

You know it was something you will always remember when then mere thought of the phrase "sea sprays" makes you laugh.

Nicht Besonders

Been rather busy lately with lots of things happening that seemed to pull down my mood substantially. This, of course, caused a minor disruption in my blogging activity (which was not very regular to start with), resulting in a drought that dragged on for almost a month.

Anyway nothing much happened in the past few weeks and now it's the new semester again with new classes, new first-year students and new feelings of self-afflicted laziness. As I never had a holiday to begin with, I feel morosely drained and not at all enthusiastic for starting a new semester of lessons. Bah!

Yeah, the two things I wanted to comment on and somehow was put off due to the above mentioned circumstances, are the two highly anticipated movies, Transformers and Harry Potter. What do I think? I thought that Transformers was rather average because I had a high expectation for it and I thought Harry Potter was average because I did not expect anything from it. Which was better then? Do the logic. Lol.

However, there is something I like about the Harry Potter movie and that is that they took on the fantastic Helena Bonham Carter to play the maniacal Bellatrix Lestrange. I think she did a very good job embodying the character, carrying herself as Bellatrix Lestrange down to pat. Pity she had so little show time and lines in the movie as I couldn't get enough of her in it. She's now on my list of favourites villains. :)
