Weird evening, after my last post about finding the LP, I got ready for the cinema. Wanted to wash my hair as I was working tomorrow, and the movie started late.
Anyway, when I've finished I get a call from Odd (my boss) saying I don't have to come in tomorrow, and if I could come to his offices on Saturday to help out with some stuff, getting it cleared up a bit. I said yes. It's just a bit of tidying, should be okay. Anyway he said he was getting an office ready for the finance guy, one for himself, and get this; one maybe for me! All I've been expecting was a chair, maybe my own desk, not my own office. Still very cool, and shows that things are going forward with the movie. Yay.
Then comes the not so great, I have an hour left before leaving for the cinema, and my dad gets a call. When he's done he asks us; 'How do you feel about moving to the new flat on the 10th of December?' I'm not very happy about it... We were supposed to move in on January 10th. My mom gets all excited, and basically says 'Yes!' before my brain has even processed the information. I say okay, but also that I'm not happy about it, and because I'm a fucking weakling I start crying. I have no idea why I started crying, really. My dad hugs me and my mom worries a bit. I just say it's silly, and my dad says that it's not silly to have feelings. I mean, I was looking forward to a final christmas here, but that's not reason to start crying, hate it when I get like this. Was kind of suprised about how worried they got at my little outburst to be honest. Not important though.
They know I'm not thrilled about the move in general, and now they know that I'm really not happy about having the actual date moved up as well. I've told them that I'm not to crazy about moving, but that I do understand why they're doing this. I'm not blaming them, but I can't help the way I feel either. I've gotten the impression that my mom feels guilty about it, she's trying to buy me off by promising me one of those expensive video iPod thinges... not an iPod, but one of those things that's like an iPod. Not gonna lie, I really want one, but wouldn't feel right like this.
Bah, hate feeling like this... must focus on the positive. At least this will mean a nice quiet christmas.
Sorry guys, you must be so sick of my ramblings about this by now. So now on to happier things again:
I went to the cinema with isil80. We saw 'Scoop'. Now, normally I would never pay to watch a Woody Allen, especially one he stars in, as the guy annoyes the living shit out of me. And I've never been a big fan of Scarlett Johansson either for some reason. But this was also a film starring Hugh Jackman, so I just had to give it the benefit of the doubt.
It's not a great film, but I enjoyed it very much. I laughed, I was stressed, I was hooked on Hugh's accent. Must say I was jealous of Scarlett on more than one occation, but lets not go there.
I read somewhere that it was a letdown for Woody fans, which probably explains why I enjoyed it. I thought it was funny and chariming, everybody did a good job and my annoyance at Woody's fidgeting was rather low. Hugh seemed so incredibly at ease with his character that I could almost believe that's how he is in everyday life. It was kind of hypnotic to watch. (for lack of a better word). All in all I found it very enjoyable, and it will end up in my DVD collection at some point, that much I can guarantee.
Think die hard "Deadwood" fans would have enjoyed it as well, as Ian McShane had one of the main parts as well. It was also very nice to see Anthony Head again, even though it was only at a very short scene at the end of the film.
Also it looked to have been mainly shot in the area I lived when I was in London. Gotta admit it was distracting at times, but also very fun to see some of my old scenery again. There was actually a scene in the film at the only pub in Holland Park that I could stand; The Mitre, very low on smoke. That bit made me squee. They were mainly in the Holland Park and surrounding areas for the scenes in the city.
That's it for now. Might have to think about getting some sleep soon.
Tomorrow will be good:
Some of my online auctions are closing, and so far a few of them have fetched well over the asking price, which makes me very happy.
I have the day off, and can get some stuff done.
And most importantly: IT's "Supernatural" day! Yay. :D
