Start of term = busy = also tired when not actually busy = still haven't finished writing up the Starburst Film Festival I attended in late August. Friday and Saturday are covered at the links; the schedule for Sunday is here, with what I did below.

Interview with Toby Whithouse )

Red Dwarf series XI: exclusive first episode preview and interview with Doug Naylor )

Finally, it was time to depart, sad that it had already all come to an end, but already making plans for future fantastic film-related adventures as we bid one another goodbye. I'll certainly come back for another Starburst festival if they do it again next year.

FINALLY, after several months of poor maintenance and two of total neglect due to Too Much Augustus, my house is once again in a sufficient state of cleanliness that I feel I could allow other people to enter it. Given that this morning it was still on 'Health Hazard - Keep Clear' status, this is a big achievement, and it has made me feel a great deal better about myself as a human being. Sadly, a few spiders were rendered homeless and / or underwent a vacuumy death during the process, but so it goes. It was a battle of wits in which only one of us could triumph.

Now, as my reward, I get to head over to Hebden Bridge for an evening of silly board- and card-games with miss_s_b, [ profile] A_C_McGregor, magister, [ profile] matgb and quite likely some other Calder Valley types. A lovely end to my little post-Augustan holiday, which I'm very much looking forward to.
