North by northwest

During thursday the cable tv box broke, and despite my numerous attempts to get it replaced swiftly, the best they could manage was monday eve. Well ok, there was an option of a technician coming sometime between 8am and 7pm on sat, which I just laughed at. How inconvenient is that! Anyway, despite the broken tv, I had previously recorded north by northwest, which me and v watched after eating. To be fair the movie is pretty poor despite it's acclaim, rather predictable with the laughable donning of sunglasses to go incognito. Still it has shots of mount rushmore, and we tried to remember who the images depicted. Interesting to read the monument's history later, finding out that it was built cos there wasn't a great deal to come to south dakota for.
