As tradition to my tute-free week habits, Moe and I decided we'd catch a movie on Friday! :D
After much deliberation, we decided upon Smart People. Twas an alright movie I must say, however I'm not sure I'm liking the fact that I spent $13 on it.. I reckon I should've saved it for dvd.. the trailers made it seem a whole lot funnier and entertaining. I mean Ellen Page was reason enough to go see it, I loved her character in Juno! But I mean, it was just an alright movie.. I'm thinking not so much worth the $13 Friday night movie cost.
zomg friday 13? lol :P
Yeah, there were some funny bits, but on the whole.. meh
We headed back to Moe's where her sister and friend staying over were just about to watch a movie: 1408.
Now I'd wanted to see this one for awhile, but not so much anticipating it when I'd be sleeping downstairs on the fold out couch. Alone. In very very
dark circumstances. :P
But I watched it anyway. There were some terrifying moments, which simply resulted in anti-climaxes. :P And it was a very odd movie.. Stephen King though, expect that.
Like it was hell weird in the beginning, like FREAKY
weird, with all the mystery and nasty pictures. but then it just started getting, well.. so unreal that it was like. bah whatever
. however there were still some good creepy moments. And VERY unexpected twists. And for some reason whilst I was trying to fall asleep, random scenes kept replaying over and over in my mind. Which yes, to say the least was rather creepy. But I listened to happy songs on my iPod which seemed to take my mind off things a little :P Moe's mum returned (at about 5am I was told but since I was so drowsy when she was asking me questions I had not much recollection of the event, much less what time it was and how bright the sky was :P) and all I remember is her asking me why I was downstairs instead of up where I usually am :P And of course I don't really recall my response :)
awoke at around 7.30am when Moe, her sister and her friend came downstairs and were snickering evilly
at the way I was sleeping (face down, diagonally
). Earliest I'd been up in awhile! :P Moe and I popped over to garbo for a spot of shopping before she had to go to work.. Bought myself new uggies as my old ones (which have actually lasted me since Year 9! or 10? Impressive no? :p
) are falling apart. And I also got a nice thick woolly, albeit slightly sparkly, black scarf from K-mart. Then I made my way home.
After studying, napping, eating, drinking (water) :P, I decided I'd see if moviesister had Step Up 2 showing! And they DID!Verdict
It is ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS
The music, dancing, cinematography and characters are absolutely fantastic
It was alot "cooler" than the first Step Up (although in it's defence, it was also an awesome movie :P) Although I couldn't quite shake the image of "ninja goalie" even though his character was a hell of alot nicer than "Justin" :P
FINALLY after foreverrrr I got to watch it, and yes yes I fell in love with it, as I do with ALL dance movies I watch :P
i mean, everyone who's anyone had watched it apart from me! :P hehe. come on, even my parents (or maybe just mum) and sister had watched it, like AGES ago. And they wanted the soundtrack. Dangflabbit I want the soundtrack.
So yes, Step Up 2 DVD and Soundtrack on my wishlist right now :D
But anyway, a nice end to my nearly ending tute free week. :P Tomorrow is like study overload!! although I admit I've been pretty good with my reading for this test on Tuesday.. Stuff might actually have sunk in this time! :) Haha.. stuff. yes I'm goooood.
And i have got to make it to the Murdoch library asap. gahh. At least I've done most of the work we had this week off to do :)
In other news, job hunt = fruitless.
Kmart = no response. Newsagent = nada.
Going to try the random lotto place. haha :P Cross your fingers
