Yikes! Thanks to Hedwig for the tip... Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal are apparently going to co-star in a movie in which they play a gay couple. (I think that page changes every few days, so read it before it's gone.) This is probably old news in the States, but I'm just hearing about it here. The Europeans (quite rightly) don't understand what all the hype is about - nor do I, really - but I'm verrrrry curious to see what the American audience will have to say about that.

As for the triple-room situation: it's not so nice. I like Sali (Dia's bf) just fine; I just don't like:

(a) not being able to get dressed in my own room
(b) having six days' worth of a third (strange) person in the room ALL THE TIME (because he obviously doesn't have classes)
(c) constantly feeling like I shouldn't turn around from my computer because who knows what I might see
(d) the fact that the room stinks and that Sali seems to have some aversion to leaving the door open, and
(e) constantly feeling like I should leave and give them some privacy. But then the counter-feelings come roaring up - "But it's MY room too, damn it!" - and then the counter-counter-feelings - "But Jess, you've been on the other end of similar situations before; don't you remember what it was like?"

Sigh. Luckily, Lotte has saved the day by loaning me her (single) room for the weekend - this will go into effect tomorrow. Lotte, if you read this, heel erg bedankt!!!

Off to dinner now...
