Catching up Facebook Style / by Heather Taylor

I forget sometimes about this space. Well forget a lot as it’s now way into 2009 and I’ve last been here in September. I meant to write about lots of things – thoughts about how I’d experienced the film festival, seeing my film for the first time, the travels to Cornwall, the bar fight in Edinburgh. But instead I made them into a series of Facebook status changes. Facebook is the new black. But not as exciting as the old black. ANYWAY…a lot has happened so in order to catch up here they are from September, 2009 until the end of the year.
