I've been slowly making my way through this Life of Birds BBC documentary thing on the BBC and yesterday I got to the episode that deals with baby birds and parenthood and I was like "omg yay adorable baby birdies! This will be so much fun to watch!" And then like half of it was other birds stealing baby birds for food or crocodiles attacking or even the parents killing some of their babies because they do not have enough resources to care for them all. It was like March of the Penguins all over again.

I forgot that a new Sookie Stackhouse book comes out today! I kind of have the urge to reread them all (well, not the first one, since the show followed it so closely, and there's not enough Eric. But like, I mix up what happens in the second book and second season a lot, so it would be valuable to reread the book, right?), but... I don't know. Last year it took me like an entire week to get through them all, and that was with me staying at home and reading the books all day long and really not doing anything else. I don't know if I want to waste a week or two like that again, at least not right now. And I don't know that I'm patient enough to get through all the books before getting to the new one. So it's more likely that I'll just read the new one.

I got an A- on my group presentation I did several weeks ago in Mood and Anxiety, and from what I can tell (it's hard to figure out my grade in a class when I'm only given letter grades), this makes it really hard for me to get an A in the class. I think if I get an A on the final paper and get an A in participation (both of which I think are possible, but definitely not guaranteed), then I can get an A in the class, but I'm not sure. I'm going to try to expect an A-, and if I get an A, then I'll be pleasantly surprised.

HOLY CRAP GUY PEARCE IS AUSTRALIAN? ...this is kind of random. But I was watching the BAFTAs red carpet and all of a sudden there was Guy Pearce and he's Australian! I suppose I've only seen him in Memento (l;kjsfd AMAZING MOVIE and he's excellent in it, so if you haven't seen it, you must. One of my all-time favorite films) and the 10 minutes he was in The Hurt Locker, so there's no reason why I would know he's Australian, but still.

Also, oh man, they were so horribly annoying when it came to A Single Man. First one of the women asked Tom Ford (the director) about Colin Firth getting in touch with his feminine side during the film, and... what? No. He's gay, but he's definitely not feminine in the slightest, so I find it really rather offensive to assume just because he's playing a gay man means he's feminine in the film. Tom Ford was excellent in responding, though, and was pretty much like "No, he wasn't feminine in the film, but he was brilliant." Then Colin Firth came up and a different person was talking to him, and he was like "SO HOW WAS IT FOR YOU TO PLAY A GAY GUY FOR THE FIRST TIME HAHA?" and Colin Firth was like "...uh, one of the first roles I played was a gay man, and I played a gay man in Mamma Mia just a year ago" and then I forget what happened exactly after that but I distinctly remembered him saying that Matthew Goode was an excellent kisser, which was awesome. Oh Colin Firth, I am remembering why I fell in love with you so hard and fast when I was 16 (my LJ layout was of him even for a few months!). Please keep choosing awesome roles like A Single Man and stop taking roles like The Accidental Husband and Mamma Mia.

Anyways, I have loads of work to do for the next 3 days (a major assignment Monday that should take me several hours, and 2 major assignments and an exam on Wednesday), which really sucks. I would rather it be more spread out this week, but I suppose it'll be nice once it's Wednesday afternoon and I can relax (at least until the weekend, where I'll have to do a bunch more work, since the next few weeks are terrible). But of course instead of spending time doing my schoolwork, like I should, I've been watching the BAFTAs red carpet (obviously), and I will be watching the BATAs awards when they air, the Olympics (heh I know I said last Sunday I wouldn't watch it at all, but only a few hours after I said that the opportunity to watch it presented itself, so I did, and now I'm all into it. I'm not watching everything though, only really speed skating, figure skating, and snowboarding), and I've been watching this 10-part BBC documentary on Netflix Instant Watch about birds. Which seems random, but I've mentioned before, I love birds (this is what happens when you have had pet birds since you were 6 years old), and it was recommended to me by Netflix, and I find it super interesting. Plus, it discusses evolution fairly frequently, and it spent some time on this bird I'm doing a group project on for my evolution class, so I can watch it and feel less guilty for it than when I'm watching just like a random movie or TV show or whatever because it's kind of like schoolwork.

I should now maybe do some work before the BAFTAs actually start because it'll definitely be harder for me to get stuff done by the time those start.
