Mid-Autumn Festival + other shite

Lots to mention so here we go:

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋節快樂!) ~ ta to the Vixter, got me copy of “Costello Music” by The Fratellis this morning (and can now wipe them downloaded mp3s from me iPod Shuffle) ~ had a lad in HMV count out me change Peter Kay-style (“there’s 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100 dollars, missy, ok?”) and near wet meself ~ “The Departed” opened here yesterday (cinemas change ont Thursday round here) but as far as I’m concerned it can still fuck a long way off (and I think I’ll even sit and watch “Infernal Affairs” tonight on me special edition DVD) ~ yeah, that’s an FC Utd of Manchester home shirt in the previous entry ~ waiting fer “The Prestige” so I can watch Christian Bale doing his “oi, wotcha mayt” Cockney accent, and of course Hugh Jackman (“I’d huge HIS ackman!”) but it dunt open till October 26th over here ~ also waiting fer “After This, Our Exile” (“父子”) wi the lovely Aaron Kwok giving us a (hopefully) HK Film Award-Winning performance as a cheatin, thievin, lyin toe-rag of a husband ~ still haven’t written all them student reports that were due October 1st ~ have nearly managed to clear the backlog of empties from me kitchen after some pissed buggers staggered into me flat and had a week-long party (can’t imagine who that mighta been, eh) ~ am half-way through the fourth season of “Remington Steele” on DVD and spotted Mr Steele’s use of the word ‘copacetic’ ~ managed to watch the pilot fer the American Fox TV show “Faceless”, wi the always-lovely Paul Michael Glaser (minus the Christmas sweaters) and of course, Sir Sean of Bean being cruel as an A-Level essay and, er… American (hey, I can forgive a lot fer an arse like his – just say the words “Sean Bean” and “Gratuitous Butt Shot” in the same sentence and I’m there) ~ still keep meaning to start reading “Sharpe’s Battle” but just have not found the time yet… or even finished “Deathnote Volume 1” ~ have regained ATV on me TV (don’t know why it fucked off like that, but the signal’s just reappeared as if nowt happened) ~ have thrilled at the surprisingly GOOD “Casino Royale” trailer, and actually can’t wait to see it now ~ and, er… I think that’s it…

Phew. Right then. Off fer a vodka straight from’t fridge, and a nice relaxing episode of “Remington Steele”.

I don't know if you've heard about a new book published in New York in August "The Subway Chronicles." In it, New York writers/bloggers/creative types shared their subway experiences in short stories.

HK Magazine wants to celebrate the underground world of our own MTR. The MTR is ever expanding and currently runs 83.7km through 51 stations and moves 2.4 million people every day.
Let's tell some of the stories of the millions of Hong Konger's who travel on it each day.

We'd love for you to contribute one of your MTR experiences - something that happened to you, something you saw or something you'll never understand about the MTR system.

A short, 250-500 word piece is all that is required. Please send it to me before Friday November 3 - we would love to include it.

Cheers,

Alexandra

Can I just let everyone know that the script for the Wolverine film has been finished. Souxie, if you're looking for an MTA story - do the sick bin!
