Time, foreign film, zombie typing and a note

Lately time has been passing by without even stopping to have tea......its November already and I feel like I should have done so much more this year...but isn't that how it always feels?

This weekend I watched the movie "Let the right one in". Its a foreign film about a young boy who befriends a vampire girl. Its a bit dark and maybe not everyone will love it - but I found it good, strangely beautiful and thought provoking. I think I may have to check out the book that the film is based on.

I need to learn how to type really well in just a week (i have my reasons). To help, The Boyf downloaded this really cool (and rather amusing) game called "the typing of the dead". Basically this game teaches you how to type fast so that you can avoid being killed by zombies (no, I'm not kidding) I'll let you know if it helps or just makes me afraid to go near a keyboard. *hehehe*

A note: Tomorrow I won't be blogging. I just thought I should mention this in case you come over here and feel devastated that there is nothing for you to read *winks*. I will be back on Thursday....until then feel free to answer some of my recent "its for you" posts or leave me awesome comments.

Hope you have a great day!

  8. Along the same vein ;) have you read "Pride, Prejudice & Zombies?" Think the Bennet sisters as zombie killers. Very funny and a little bit frightening.

  16. "Basically this game teaches you how to type fast so that you can avoid being killed by zombies"

    Bwahahahahaha!

    That might be the only typing motivation I've ever heard that will really work. I hate those boring touch-typing programmes.

  17. Everyone laughs when they find out I had typing as a subject at school (up until matric - seriously!) but I type like a demon so who has the last laugh huh? Would still love to check out the game!
