I love you, Drew Barrymore

I loved everything about Whip It. It's a charming, entertaining and joyous film about girls and women doing something they love, together. There are not enough films of this ilk, and on the strength of this I am delighted to add Drew Barrymore to my list of favourite directors.

I gave in and finally watched the pilot of Breaking Bad. I'd been resisting it for a long time because the show sounded so relentlessly grim, but then I remembered that I like grim when it's well written and acted, and of course I'm very, very impressed. I will be catching up on it over the next month or two.

I need to start revising for my exam soon. I took a week off any kind of school work, but by the weekend I would like to have decided which texts to revise (we need to choose two I'm told). I can't do Foucault, Freud or Descartes as I've already written essays about them and we're not allowed to repeat any work. Out of interest, which two would you choose?

Nerds.
