Heh, I am actually pretty tired but for some reason, I am unable to sleep, my mind, she does not wish to be silent for long. I doubt I am the only person who has that problem, my mind seems to prefer running several moments in advance, I think faster than I speak at times, which leads me to mumble something unintelligible because I am already thinking about what I am going to say next!
One thing that I have noticed lately that has irked me are pop up blockers that advertise their services...using pop-ups...yes, that will make me want to pay for your services bastard, err, I mean sir.
Tonight I went to the Block with my mother, yes, that is so cool, I got to hang out with my mum! Heh, my mother is great though, while we were waiting for the bus, some ignorant teenagers rode by on their bikes and one decided he would try his hand at something clever and said, "Fuck gothic people." My mother, being the lovely woman she is, called them stupid and told them to fuck off. My mother is one of those people that it is difficult to feel indifferently about, you either love her or you hate her, there are no lukewarm feelings when it comes to her. Everyone I know loves my mother though, especially my friends.
So, we went to the Block, fyi, The Block is an outdoor shopping centre, it is very popular with the youth of SoCal, especially in the evening. However, it is not so appealing to one such as myself who loathes to be exposed to the elements, most specifically, The Sun, so I was not overly comfortable, sticking to the shadows as much as possible. Heh, I can be so silly at times, it was not like I was going to get burned, I was wearing a coat, plus had two layers of make-up on, I doubt even one complete ray got anywhere near my skin! I decided to go and check out the new Hot Topic that just opened there a few days before. Wow, all I have to say is that this store is far superior to the one I work at, the design is much better. I bought another new tee, a black Bauhaus purple babydoll tee, one can never have too many band tees in my opinion, they work for some many different occasions!
Anyways, we went and saw The Village. I shall not give anything away, I shall only say that the movies is more than it appears to be on the surface, there are some fabulous twists, I would defintely recommend seeing it, the critics be damned! I mean, whoever listens to the critics anyways, I have loved films that they completely hated and have loathed films that they adored, it is purely based on the indivdual preferences of the person reviewing the film, it is nothing more than an opinion. I have never went to see a movie because Roger Ebert gave it a thumb's up, and if you have, I'm sorry. Though with this particular movie, I think M. Night Shamylan is trying to be a bit too high minded, but than again, that is not nessecarily a bad thing, it just will not appeal to your average movie goer who when they go to see a horror film, expect to be entertained by a few hundred gallons of fake blood and some large breasted girl being brutalized. But, ahem, that does have it's place as well, what could be better than watching stupid, easily despisable people being brutally murdered? ~_^
