The Great Gatsby

The buildings were higher, the parties were bigger; the morals were looser and the liquor was cheaper

Sorry folks for the recent lull in posting - it's been hard to keep up, especially with it being my exam period. So much work, so little time!

I hope you're all keeping well and looking out for the snow - it was lovely and thick last night, but it had all been washed away by the rain this morning. No crunching around in wellington boots for me! (At least, not yet... still crossing my fingers for another bout tonight!)

Tom (Buchanan!) Hardy 
As a small way of apologising for my absence, here is the trailer for what looks to be my film of the year (although, having said that, I do love finding little surprises along the way...). Leonardo Di Caprio and Carey Mulligan, in a film by Baz Luhrmann? What could be better! (Well, I have to admit that if they'd cast Tom Hardy as the raging Tom Buchanan, the film would be a perfect translation of my interpretation of the book, but I'll give Joel Edgerton a chance).

I'm going to say something almost sinful now too, but I don't even mind that Kanye West's No Church in The Wild is becoming The Great Gatsby's signature song... Roll on 17th May 2013!
