My name is Lorraine, I live in Wellington, New Zealand, and I'm an addict - to a Kindle! Ever since I 'elbowed' my Kindle, I have been in complete bereavement mode. I'm trying like mad to get another one. Dick Smith are sold out completely. I've ended up buying one through www.trademe.co.nz . Hope it comes soon.
After my fall the other day, I still have two very sore ankles, heavily bandaged - though I did go to the chemist and got proper ankle bandages. Trouble is now I have to dress down to match my very obvious bandages and this is totally annoying because I wanted to look cool when I go to Queenstown soon. Now with my stick, and two not-very-fashionable ankle bandages, I look like some little old lady - oh, wait, I am a little old lady! I have the utmost faith in swimming however, that all the kicking in the water will cure my ankle, so I will try to swim today. Providing there's no jellyfish about.
Saw "Django Unchained" yesterday. What a good movie. I did close my eyes during the dog scene, but small price to pay for enjoying the rest of it. I've never really cared for Jamie Fox, but I must say he was rather sexy-looking as Django. I liked all the characterisations in this movie, even Leonard DeCaprio whom I've never liked much either.
Oh, and I finally got around to seeing "Argo" last week. Ben Affleck is a wonderful director.
My friend and writer, A J Ponder - along with Rona Gallery/bookshop in Eastbourne - is running an art competition for Wellington region artists. Details can be got from A.J.'s website: www.anafflictionofpoetry.blogspot.com.
"The Hobbit" is still doing great guns in Wellington at all the theatres. Such pleasant memories of when I was in Matamata.
