I'm sorry about not posting these last few months. I can't say I've been that busy. I did have exams and my jury and applying for jobs, but really most of the time I've been sleeping, eating and watching TV. I guess I'm just getting bored of blogging for a non-existent audience. No one comments! But I have been writing quite a bit for FanFiction.net because the people on there seem to be reading and giving me feedback. Also, it's fun to take a work of fiction and make it your own.
Mostly what's happening with me right now is that I am still looking for a summer job. I do have the art gallery but that is only every Saturday morning. Luckily, today was a great day because not only am I eligible for a big tax refund, but I have an interview for Loblaws in a couple days! I really hope I get the job, even if it means I have be a cashier.
My main topic for this evening is the Princess Bride.
I just revisited one of my preteen movie obsessions for fun and as I was watching it I thought of remake cast members one by one. Almost every character reminded me of a modern actor in some way. If you've seen this movie, you probably remember it as an awesome, low-budget, underrated 80s fairytale adventure movie with a great cast.
Since it was made in 1987 they could do a 25th anniversary remake (2012) or a 30th anniversary remake (2017).
I know some people may disagree with me about this, but this movie could be made funnier than it was (although it was absolutely hilarious). I most definitely think the music could have been improved. No full out musical song-and-dance numbers, but definitely something a little less boring, like John Williams or Danny Elfman.
Be forewarned - this is not a practical cast, it is my dream cast!

Buttercup = Keira Knightley
Humperdinck = Jerry Seinfeld
