Notes from our reading this weekend and today…
Richard Gere turned 60 today. Something about that just doesn’t sound quite right, but it’s a brilliant excuse to screen An Officer and a Gentleman, or maybe Pretty Woman.
Love, love, love the New York Times T Magazine‘s piece on Kristin Scott Thomas. I’ve had a crush on her since Four Weddings and A Funeral. And I think she’s a great pick for the fall fashion issue too.
While you’re there, check out this article about the imminent death of Facebook (well – hmm). Best quote in the comments: “Facebook: home of American ennui and cute baby pics.” For the record, I don’t agree – after all it’s also home to our fan page.
Here’s also some of the last-minute advice for university students from around the nest, for you to share.
- The Globe and Mail asked 6 of its writers to share their advice.
- Also from the Globe: How to save money on textbooks.
- How to email a professor – straight from the horse’s mou-err, blog.
- Kiplinger.com‘s 10 things students don’t need.
And finally I have to send you over to More contributing editor Karen Von Haun’s column on originality (at the Globe). How are you one of a kind?
[ETA: Can you believe I'd typed "Richard Gere turns 40" in the intro to this piece? Now there's a Freudian typo... 60, however, it is!]
