By the sea, Mr. T...

I hope you all realize that 'Mr. T' is not in reference to the man with the mohawk. It is from Sweeney Todd.

By the sea, Mr Todd, that's the life I covet
You and me, Mr. T,
Oh I know you'd love it.

This song is perhaps the saddest bit of the film for me. Mrs. Lovett is a beautiful creation; you rarely find a character with that much depth in a musical. Stephen Sondheim was a marvellous man, and Tim Burton is spot on with his interpretation of her.
She wanted more out of life. She needs somebody to love. Poor dear.
If this Africa thing doesn't work out for me (which it better), I'm moving to Percé and writing cash fiction and walking in the mountains and sailing and riding my horse until I die. Wouldn't it be loverly?

In other news, Brooks was here. *Sigh*

I want a pet wHale. Crap. Cannot focus on work when wanting wHale this much.
