Terror And Wonder...

After sleeping in until nearly 7:30, and not exercising (again!) I got myself to the British Library for the TERROR AND WONDER Gothic exhibit.

It was fascinating, but there was just so much to it that I was exhausted after more than two hours to get round it, and that was skipping past most of the very familiar film clips. Whew,  It was also more crowded than I had hoped, and hard to see a lot of the books.
Doctor Dee's Magic Mirror was a guest star. I'm always glad to see that, and I was quite taken with the first film, a cool animation of THE CASTLE OF OTRANTO.
For those with money to spend, there was a lot of rather jolly tat in the bookshp, T-shirts, etc.
It was proper cold again; 'Taters!'  I'm sneezing a lot, and the insides of my ears are itching like crazy, for some reason. Hope I'm not 'coming down with'.
The bloody hoover isn't picking up, which is bad news, as I need to use it every day, to keep the cat hairs and dust under control, 'cos of my allergies. Shit. I still have to get the PC sorted, somehow, and get a new printer/scanner. I now have two dead ones...
Saw  the much-derided JOHN CARTER last night, and found it quite entertaining. There's so much vastly worse stuff around, I don't know why it's considered such a turkey.
