I have been a bit obsessed about Stephen Fry lately. Well, to the extent that my friends have started making fun of me. In december I discovered QI, a quiz show he hosts – I encourage you to check it out if you don’t know it, and watched every single episode of it . I also watched his documentary about manic depression recently and I’ve even listened to some radio programs he has made for the BBC, including Fry’s English delight. Which I enjoyed very much, I mean, Fry + language = I like! Moreover I have recently watched his Stephen Fry in America shows.
AND, last night Stephen Fry even appeared in my dreams!
Crazy I say!
Also, all the QI watching led to the discovery of lots of British comedians (A new obsession in the making?) Consequently, many an hour of the past few weeks has been spent watching all sorts of clips on youtube. Youtube was a devoted friend of mine during the neverending flu. Thanks Youtube!
British comedy. I like it.
The only Christmas decorations in my appartment. Well, apart from the Advent “wreath”.
I love these red lights.
Today is the last day of studying for me! The last final exam is tomorrow. In the past 2-3 weeks I have written 1 essay, taken 5 exams and done one final assignment. And my mental state is surprisingly good! Only one more exam to go.
I get the feeling though that I’ll be watching more QI than studying today.
QI, along with Stephen Fry, is my latest favorite. Funny. Yes.
Thanks to Stephen Fry for keeping me happy through the exams!
I’ve recently discovered audiobooks and I find them very very clever. It’s so great to have someone read for me while I walk/bike to work or do chores or knit. Really cool to be able to “read” while doing something else! Currently Stephen Fry is reading Harry Potter and the Halfblood prince to me. I wanted to re”read” it before I go and see the movie. Stephen is almost finished reading so I guess I’ll be going to see the movie sometime next week. By the way, I love Stephen Fry! I saw him on Top Gear a few weeks ago and he’s so funny. That might have started some Stephen Fry crazyness with me because last week I also watched his documentary about bipolarity. I’ve wanted to see that for some time now and finally got around to it last week. I found it quite interesting and I admire his honesty about his disease.
