The Daily Post asks: Write a review of the last movie you saw.

(I’m not that great at reviewing movies but here goes.)

The last movie I watched was Ruby in the Smoke (2006).

It aired on PBS’s Masterpeice Theater. I like a lot of the movies/TV shows that are aired on Masterpeice Theater and this one included two of my favorite actors, Billie Piper and Matt Smith. Yes, they are both Doctor Who stars but I also really enjoy their acting.

 

The movie is based off of a series of books, I believe. I haven’t read them so I can’t compare the film to book. It’s set in Victorian England and Billie Piper plays Sally Lockhart, a young woman who recently lost her father and is living with her aunt. She recieves a strange letter and the entire film is then about her trying to solve the mystery and avoid being killed by Mrs. Holland, who is trying to solve the same mystery.

Overall, the movie was ok. It did get a little stale towards the middle but soon picked up again. I thought Billie Piper was great as Sally Lockhart, her character kept me interested in the film when it seemed to drag on in some places.

The Daily Post asks: Name a food you used to like – what changed?

I love food. It’s hard to think of some kind of food I don’t like. There are many foods I used to hate but have come to love…

I used to love salmon. I probably still would if it weren’t for the fact that I’m very allergic to it. I think I was about 13 when I had my first and only reaction to it. I broke out in severe hives. I remember eating a bunch of smoked salmon that my uncle had brought over and later that night I started to not feel so well.

My mom noticed red splotches on my arm and we just assumed it was from being in the sun for too long. The next morning, I woke up and I when I tried to get up, my whole body felt like it was on fire. I started crying from both the pain and because I didn’t know what was going on.

After several long hours in the ER, they concluded that it was just an allergic reaction to the fish. I spent the next week on the couch covered in calamine lotion and battling a fever. It was quite the experience.

Needless to say, as much as I once loved salmon, I consider it my enemy now.

Uncomfortable Topics

I’m a fairly open person, it’s hard to embarrass me or offend me. There are very few things that make me uncomfortable. The exception to that, for me, is rape.

I’ve never been raped. I feel I have no right discussing it. I think that’s maybe what makes me so uneasy about writing about it. I don’t know what it’s like, I can’t imagine the terror or the level of personal violation.

Even now, I’m feeling out of line. I think I’ll leave it at that.

This was difficult!

1.  Things I don’t know about, like elephants or the life in the 1800’s. I don’t mind researching for a story but it still makes me nervous when I write about topics I am not extremely familiar.

2. Topics that make me feel uncomfortable, such as rape or abuse.

3. Religions.

4. My personal life

5. Things that may be offensive to others.

I’ve decided I want to blog more. Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now.  I will be posting on this blog once a day for all of 2011.

I know it won’t be easy, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Therefore I’m promising to make use of The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similiar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.

If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.

Signed,

Mallory
