Finishing thoughts.

A few rules and observations for a Monday morning:

Constructive uses of time. 5

Tomorrow, I may make an attempt at drawing something, just to show the limitations of my talents. Today, I’m going to start my list of new-to-me films I’ve seen so far this year. I’m not quite as fastidious as one of the ByTownian staffers, who made a goal of 100 films (writing a bit about ...

Rehashing.

(Gym trip this morning, so this’ll be short/somewhat repetitive.) One of the many irritating things about my glamourous showbiz life is people asking “So, do you get to see all the movies?” In theory, yes. In practice, not so much. I might work in Happy Fun Town Movieland, but do you ever want to stay ...

Tedium. 3

Complaining about the weather is so tedious, but seriously? Fuck you, weather, with your day of rain in the middle of a cold spell. Trying to rush to a bus when the sidewalks have seemingly been zambonied is a nightmare, particularly after a very long day at work. Even though it was long, it wasn’t ...

Writing long paragraphs. 2

Writing long paragraphs.
We’re ridiculously busy at the cinema, which is great. January is usually good, because we get at least a couple of Oscar favourites, but we’re also the kind of place that people resolving to watch more movies in the new year tend to go.

Stepping up to the plate. 2

Slept pitifully last night, entirely because of a certain feline who likes three things better than almost anything: Sleeping in my armpit, snoring, and having noisy baths right next to my ear. Feeling foggy and groggy and would love nothing more than to curl back up and snooze. What a shame that I have to ...

Fallibility.

Fallibility.
So I lied those two times this week when I said I was going to go for a run. And no, I didn’t walk to work either. I also finished my chocolate-stash-for-the-week in two days. And I had pop tarts as a late night snack yesterday. And I feel bloated and ugly and old. This ...

Writing this in the wee hours (apologies if the spelling and grammar are even more appalling than usual) for slightly-less-wee hours posting purposes, as I have a chiropractic appointment (about bloody time too, as my neck has been in knots for a week now – largely because the cat has decided that sleeping in my ...

Rushing.

I am not one of those people who can wake up, hop into the shower, grab toast and coffee on the way out of the house, and have a great day. I have tried this dozens of times in my life and it always results in murder misanthropy.

Delicious brains.

Bit of writer’s block today, and not even in a Brian K. Vaughan ‘There’s no such thing, only new video games’ way. I started the weekend elated to have some time to myself, but then it turned into too much time. Then I started to get that weird lonely, empty homesick feeling while sitting on ...
