I got actual sleep last night. Mostly because of the headache that made lying down in the dark necessary. And the actual sleep started well after 0100 and ended at 0630. But, sleep! And then I woke up before my alarm. Er, every twenty minutes before my alarm after about 0500. But that was efficient. And the morning lesson isn't a lesson it's tutorials and mine isn't until 1000. So I'm like half an hour early.

On the minus side I didn't finish the critical commentary first draft to show the teacher, but, I can live with that.

And it is the last day of lessons. After this there's only electronic submission of assignments and maybe getting them back again with a chat. No more turning up at 0900 and staying until 1700. Which I was very bad at. Last day makes it all easier.

Two tutorials and a 90 minute lesson today, with a few hours in between of sitting in the library thinking arrgh arrgh why didn't I do more work already arrgh arrgh. As you do.

No more lessons in this college year :-)

I'm home early because tutorials only, and in one piece, so basically I win.

Terminator Salvation really is as bad as I remember from the cinema.
Marcus gets a character arc, but he also gets to do brain surgery on himself with his bare hands, and in logic world that doesn't tend to go well.
John Connor is an idiot. Like, seriously and repeatedly.
Kyle Reese did okay for a damsel in distress.
... were there other characters? I think there were a bunch of women who exist only to make googly eyes at the macho guys and have no agenda of their own. They didn't talk to each other. Or in one case at all.
Blergh.

Also? The worst bit?
He got in a fist fight with a Terminator.

You know in the first movie where Reese warns the Terminator will pull Sarah's heart out?
Hell, the first thing a Terminator ever does is kill a man with one punch and do something nasty to another's internal organs.

How do you have an actual fist fight with that? It makes no sense. None.

It was a whole plot point in The Sarah Connor Chronicles too. They hit you, you die, no chance to defend yourself.

And it's not just that fight, in every action sequence it ignores laws of physics, strength of humans or lack thereof, and medical basics.

It's just really seriously deeply stupid throughout.

Bad movie.
