Hugh Grant Lovingly Refers to Himself as a ‘Laughtart’

If there’s one thing that college students love, it’s films. One of my personal favourites has to be Love Actually, which features a myriad of big-name actors and actresses in an extremely amusing film all about love. I’m not usually a fan of the romance genre, but this is one romantic comedy that I enjoy quite thoroughly. Hugh Grant takes on yet another role as a fellow of no little awkwardness caught up in romantic tangly-ness, and he’s the prime minister this time around, no less! Bill Nighy does an amazing job as a burnt-out rocker trying to sell his cover of a famous song, but, as one can see from his opening scene, it’s a bit of a long shot. (He can hardly remember to substitute ‘Christmas’ for ‘love’ in the song during his recording session.) Allan Rickman also has his time in the light as a boss getting himself in a nasty bit of scandal… Kiera Knightly, Liam Nielson, Colin Firth, and many another big-name star gets twisted into the plots as well, since the film uniquely cuts down numerous stories of love that are all deeply intertwined to make one tale definitely worth more than one viewing. If one can procure the DVD for a long enough amount of time, be sure to watch the commentary and prepare to be highly amused as the cast and director let you in on all sorts of hilarity, including that the two Barbie dolls that Rickman’s wife in the film holds up are actually two Ken dolls that the crew modified to look the parts of ‘transvestite’ and ‘dominatrix’ for their few seconds of cinematic fame.
Today would be a great day for watching a film here in central Ohio, too, since a delightful rain is basting the countryside in its nurturing goodness even as I sit here with my tea and type this. It likes to rain here often enough, which is fine by me since I simply love a good rain, but I’ve heard more than a few grumbles whilst skipping across campus during a nice downpour. The sea of goulashes and umbrellas a rainy day creates is surprisingly artistic, but one must stay aware so as to not lose an eye in such chaos.
Also, a short special announcement for any Ohioans, organ enthusiasts, or folks interested in Ohio Wesleyan: as part of the American Guild of Organists’ pipe-organ promoting tour in the Columbus area, an organ concert is being held in Ohio Wesleyan’s very own Grey Chapel! It’s going to be at 9 A.M. on Tuesday, June 26th, and I highly recommend attending, if only to see OWU’s lovely organ in its glory. I’ll be there and shall report on it afterwards, and hopefully I can grabble a few nice pics of campus during these relatively vacant summer days.

German Word: Liebe means ‘love.’ Lieben is the verb ‘to love.’ So, to tell someone that you fancy him or her, simply sidle on over and mutter Ich liebe dich as you see fit.

Pictures: And to sum up my usually insanity, here are some pictures from Love Actually. The First is actually Hugh Grant stopping off for some tea and biscuits with myself and a friend, but we don’t brag about that much.

Flossing is as vital as brushing, so be sure you're carrying it out two times a day right after scrubbing. Start with retaining the floss snugly up to you, or use a flossing tool alternatively. Scrape down and up the edges in the pearly whites to remove plaque buildup and food and get the mouth nice and clean. [url=http://www.x21w12w21.info]Cort5y656e[/url]
