Thank you Chownah, you have made Quinn's day!
I haven't seen the King's Speech but I watched a documentary on the George VI's speech impediment and his speech therapist. It was excellent.
I also watched the first part of Pratchett's "Going Postal" - didn't get around to watching Part 2 due to social function on Christmas Eve. I haven't checked but I think Part 2 got recorded and is in the black box under the TV.
The stand out viewing experience was when I watched "District 9" with my son at home. It would have to rate as one of the worst science fiction movies of all time. I persevered until his computer overheated (4/5 of the way through) which I think was probably a self-protection mechanism by the computer because the movie was so baaaad! My 16-year-old son loved it and we had a good time sitting, watching it and talking about it.
Apart from that I have been enjoying some reruns of trashy US programs on late night TV and the second series of "Lie to Me" is good.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
