Sorry, completely off topic, but Malia, your birthday is October 1st? If so, you share it with my baby brother :). Happy Belated Birthday!

Yes, AE, my birthday is October 1. It seems a lot of us share that day! My sister-in-law Molly's sister is an Oct.1 baby, too, as is my hairdresser! And a friend of mine's little girl is also and Oct.1 baby. I suppose if you count back nine months, it is not surprising why so many people are born on that day ;)

Yes, indeed - a very happy birthday to you Malia - and so glad you got to see the movie around it. I was also pleasantly surprised to hear the grading your family and friends gave the movie. Interesting.

Is your birthday today, Saturn?! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I hope you have a chance to do something fun and get some good pressies!
I may be entirely biased, but I do believe October is the best month of the year--especially for Birthdays :)

Saturn wrote:Aw, that's a shame dks, and it looks like I won't be able to see it here either, unles it's showing in the South of Ireland somewhere, or in England, neither of which I can afford to travel to :-(

Hope it isn't too long to wait for the DVD then.:-)



Happy news!! It is showing here in my town for the next two nights only!! I am off to see it tonight with Edward...!! My oldest son has graciously offered to it with his younger brothers--and my littlest has swine flu right now--it had him extremely ill! He is on the mend, however. Thank goodness for Tamiflu...

Double ugh. Another true testament to my utter and complete lack of awareness these days--I am so sorry, Miss Malia--happy belated birthday to you, as well! :!:

Excuse me, can I ask a question?

I'm a chinese mature student. I enjoy writing chinese ancient poems and reading english poems in my spare time. My english is too awful to write any correct sentences. So I beg your pardon for my bad english here.

However, I'll have some prolblem need your help. I decide my research topic to the study of Keats. So I want to get some documents or texts about him and his works. I bought some books and looked for some informations in a public libary. But it is not enough. Could you tell me where can I get that texts for free? Can I get that on internet? I said "free" because I hadn't VISA card...

Thanks your guys.

Depends what type of documents or texts you are looking for. All of the poetry and I'm sure the letters of Keats are available online if you search for them, indeed some of them are posted on this site, but more critical and analytical works, textbooks, journals etc I don't think so. If anyone else has any ideas, feel free to add to this, I'm not qualified to say what is and isn't available; if you know different please help our friend out here.
