Girl on film

I've probably been to the cinema more times in the past two weeks than in the previous two years (which is not to say that I've been living in the Picturehouse like mobbsy and aardvark179, just that I normally don't go to the pictures much at all!), so I suppose I should say a few words about the films I've seen as part of the Film Festival.

I don't have a film icon -- suggestions welcome (yes, I am a shameless comments whore).

Bed alert

Apparently, sharing a bed with a woman "drains men's brains". So, chaps, if you want a good night's sleep, it's time to start making with the boykissing. But what is this so-called 'sleep expert' on about? "Historically, we have never been meant to sleep in the same bed as each other." Historically? Does he mean in the days when people routinely shared a bed with all their siblings, and livestock, assuming they could tell the difference, because there wasn't enough space or central heating to do otherwise? Or before that, when we all curled up in a cave? I mean, okay, I actually skipped most of history at school because I was too busy writing big fat goth poetry, but I'm sure I'd have remembered the bit where the Earl of Bunk-bed invented split-level sleeping-arrangements as a workaround for being kept awake by his wife (or donkey?) "Spinning" Jenny endlessly tossing and turning in his bed next to him.

In other news, though, I say, it's rather hot, isn't it? Has anybody else noticed this? I'm thinking of writing a LiveJournal article about it.
