In case it wasn't clear the first time, it was the ALARM company that called. Apparently their alarm is still on.

Why is my phone always on for these calls? I turn it off at the most inconvenient of times and yet, for this, it's on at full power. Bastards. Some fucktard over at my store decided to sleep in today, so guess who they call? The sad part is, I'm not sure who to be angry at yet. I think figuring that out is worth going in to work and taking a peek at the schedule.

OK, that was weird. I was just expounding on the vitues of American Psycho with a very patient Fiona while waiting for the light at the top of our street to change, and a car with all its windows rolled down pulled up beside us for about twenty seconds. And as it was pulling away we both sort of furrowed our brows and Fiona asked, "Was that Murray??" and it was. In the backseat. He now knows the difference between bone and off-white.

So I went to see About A Boy. I figured that if I was going to go see a movie in the middle of the afternoon on a weekday, I might as well go see a movie about people who can go see movies in the middle of the afternoon on a weekday. Turns out, it was a good choice.

The movie followed the book almost exactly until about 3/4 of the way through, at which point it took the sharpest left turn in movie history. Pretty interesting, actually. At first I was cringing at the movie ending, but they ended up justifying it pretty well. I was disappointed at the diminishing of Ellie, the character who is pretty much central to the book's resolution, but whatever.

From the first minute, I knew that whoever was doing the soundtrack would be an artist that had been recommended to me many many times and whom I had repeatedly ignored for no good reason. It was. It was Badly Drawn Boy, who I "just didn't have time for" last year.

Really, that was my excuse ;)

So now I'm downloading a bunch. New pastime. It's lovely, really.

In the interest of clarity, I'm going to make a list here of the movies I want to and could go see today, and see which one ends up on top:

-The Fast Runner: Atanarjuat
-Y Tu Mama Tambien
-Monsoon Wedding
-About a Boy
-Trembling Before G-d
-The Powerpuff Girls Movie (I love that those are next to each other)
-Eight Legged Freaks

I would pick the longest one (in the interest of value) except that's The Fast Runner, and I'm not sure I want to see The Fast Runner just yet. I'm still so scarred by absolutely hating everything about Agaguk (and putting it off so much that I had to read 60 pages a day at the end) that I can't honestly put myself in the mood for an Inuit movie in a few hours. Sad, isn't it? It's all because of Yves Theriault and his writing style.

Up until a few minutes ago I was thinking I would probably see About a Boy... except I just read a synopsis of it, and it looks like they totally "fixed" the plot to make it more convenient. Hm.


I just realized I haven't eaten yet.

Ugh. I woke up with a headache this morning. Too many diaryland surveys, I think.

I had this weird dream last night where this mean guy died and I went completely hysterical over it. I've never been hysterical before, let alone been hysterical in a dream. It was strange and upsetting. I woke up and it was 1:30 in the afternoon and I was all sweaty and sticky and I had a realllllly bad headache which hasn't gone away yet.

Well, it's a little better. Ani's "Hat Shaped Hat" is playing on the stereo and I can actually stand it.

The rest of the day was spent trying not to move my head and watching the Joy Ride DVD. What a non-productive, pathetic day. The only conclusion I came to was that Leelee Sobieski and Steve Zahn are both fucking retards. Listen to their commentary sometime. Between inventing inner monologues for minor characters and laughing at their character's jokes in the movie, they prove that they are complete morons. In an endearing way, of course. And the fact that both of them make comments about how big their asses look is kind of funny. But still. If I wanted to watch a movie with a loud, obnoxious person, I'm sure I could go find one out here in the real world.

I suddenly and inexplicably want to go out and get a tattoo. I think it has to do with the redesign frenzy.
