I have a long post I want to write on Kabhi Alvida naa Kehna (aka KANK) but my mind is refusing to cooperate. But I am really bored and thought instead I would bring you egomaniacal randomness about me:

1. I have silly dislikes. I have not forgiven anyone involved in A Knight's Tale. Except for Rufus Sewell, but I pretend he isn't in it. Like I pretend he wasn't in Tristan and Isolde (another film I haven't forgiven most of the actors and writers for). This is the reason I cannot watch Brokeback Mountain, because it would involve me forgetting Heath Ledger's awfulness and the general horror of A Knight's Tale.

2. I quite frequently like over the top angst and agony in my entertainment. This is why I like Bollywood, because it gives you this plus dancing and singing. I never understand when people critique this. Yes, subtlety has its place, but so do 100s of people dancing around and singing at pivotal moments in a film.

3. I have only read extracts of Margaret Drabble's Seven Sisters but it sounds like the most tedious middle-class navel gazing piece of rubbish ever in the history of ever.

4. I don't care what historians say, I think the French revolution was all round a good idea, even if it devolved into the Reign of Terror. More countries should have followed their lead. And no, I won't be going to see Marie Antoinette as I think she was a moronic idiot who does not merit an apologia. She wasn't that bleeding young and naive.

Er, I think that's enough egomania.

ETA: D'oh! I forgot the most important point. Please share some random stuff about yourself with me! I don't care if it's that you fear cabbages or spend your evening turning Charles Dickens' prose into rhyming couplets.

ETA 2: I also forgot that I greeted yet another (but totally unexpected) delivery man in my dressing gown. I am really going to have to buy something that is a bit more sophisticated than the one I own if I plan on doing this more.
