cheer up dear, it might never happen.

there's been a bit of a lack of posting round these parts recently, and i can only apologise, but i have been rather under the weather for the past few days.
curse this wet weather, i knew i shouldn't have walked to the post office in the rain!
to ward off this horrendous cold/flu thing i have going on i have been trying to get into the autumn-y swing of things.
firstly, i have bought these frankly beautiful (and no, i don't think that's an ovestatement) canvas shoes off the topshop website.
in the sale these babies were only £10, and they only had my size left.
fate? yes i believe so.
i need some more robust-ish shoes for this rainy season & i think it's a small way of incorporating some autumn colours into my wardrobe. in my opinion they'll look lovely next to the even lovelier reds & oranges of the fallen leaves.
on another note, i've just joined the i will go slightly out of my way to step on a crunchy-looking leaf on facebook. seriously, who can deny they don't do that?
hallowe'en (hell yeah i put the apostrophe in, the word is not nearly as magical without it) is coming up on friday & before this illness malarkey struck me down in the prime of life, i was starting to organise some sort of hallowe'en picnic in the park with a big group of mis amigos, should be pretty fun i think.
although that does mean i need a hallowe'en costume on short notice.
also, in a bit of an effort to cheer my ill self up, i've been watching marathons of how i met your mother. that show is just so funny, i love it!
oh, and, ted? marry me please!
i've also been watching a few films that i've been dying to see for ages.
nick & norah's infinite playlist: so good. so so sooooo good. in fact, i may just have to commit bigamy cause i want to marry michael cera too.
high fidelity: based on one of my favourite books by nick hornby, it was brought to life really well, although i think it would have come across better if it was still set in london, especially as the whole "exotic american singer" thing didn't really work out. i have to say that the male characters were brilliant, and jack black in particular was playing the role he has been typecast in ever since (think failing musician who is stuck in a rut & you've pretty much got it) & for an amazing reason, he rocks at it. i also LOVED the bruce springsteen cameo.
wow, didn't mean to do a whole review there.
hopefully i'll get better in a few days, organise the hallowe'en picnic & have some nice photos to post.
thanks for reading :)
