There's a storm in my teacup!

Well, in my dollar store mug.

Did you know the main reason that I've not checked livejournal so much or written things is because I don't have the drive to get the words up on here? Well, you probably didn't - I didn't really think about it until right now.

But it is important to remember these things, and my memory is poor. So I should consider writing up some important things, and then less important things.

IMPORTANT THINGS:
Jamie has gotten better. She had pains, she has them less now. This means we can travel and do more, and that is what has been happening. This stops Jamie from being bored and me from worrying that Jamie might be bored.

I saw "A Very Long Engagement" on Monday. It was a very beautiful film, and the storyline was cleverly thought-out, as most of the films I've seen by Jean-Pierre Jeunet are. However, there's an underlying feeling that I missed something - too many characters, perhaps? It'll take another viewing before I can say I enjoyed the film, but then the morose tone of the film and the setting and the deaths may not actually cause enjoyment to be the only emotion I'd pick up from a second viewing of the film.

I went into London with Jamie on Tuesday. We purchased a lot of Mountain Dew. We also informed staff members in the shop that a drink I purchased before was out of date. As an apology, they gave Jamie another can of Mountain Dew.

CJ will arrive in a week's time, on Tuesday. I'm getting some time off work so I can try to grab local friends and introduce them to her. It'll also allow for more fun in terms of multi-player games, if we can get lots of people to meet up together.

"Pancake Day" went excellently. Golden Syrup was bought just for the occasion. I ate four pancakes, and this was something I have not done for years. I did not snack during the day, so that is most likely why.

The secret ingredient is crime.

LESS IMPORTANT THINGS:
The Americans have fire over there, from what I have been told.

Having a poker chip on you will make you perform better whilst bowling. This has proven true between Jamie, Tomoko and myself several times, and was true again on Tuesday. I played awfully, Jamie did not - I did not know why until she mentioned the poker chip she had.

Polystyrene sheets are excellent frisbees. Also great fun to try to catch on a windy day if thrown upwards. The flight pattern of a polystyrene sheet is very unpredictable.
nb:If you don't have a polystyrene sheet, try a balloon with a marble inside.

Jamie cannot throw a bag of things forwards. This has happened three times now, enough to know it is true. Jamie will not argue with me on this.

Our shop also has a smell of sewage and fish-glue you used to use at primary school here in England. In the next few months, when things get warmer again, this may be an entertaining workplace to be around. "A cat may have crawled under the workplace and died." may well be my response to anyone who asks what the smell is in the shop.

The Americans, as a whole, do not celebrate Pancake Day, from what I have heard.

The mother did not realise we're going to have two Pancake Days in this household this year, for officially the real Pancake Day is on the 8th. Still, I'm not going to bring this up until later on in the week. I bought a bottle of golden syrup and intended to use as much of it up as possible.

alien resurrection was kinda neat too.

I think it's really cool how he uses the same characters over and over again.

How odd O_o;; Well I suppose we can celebrate enough pancake day for them XD

Second time you've done that.
It wasn't funny either time.
Sorry.

Re: Let the 12 year old AOL user translate this

Your posts are perfect for it. No one else on Livejournal speaks English as perfectly as you do

You forgot the most important thing. Cheating at table tennis gets you more tickets!

What would happen if we brought a bag full of poker chips for bowling? Maybe then we would have conquered Oscar the Hideous Clown.

I sodding missed A Very Long Engagement! I was looking forward to it, but I wasn't sure when it was getting a screening, so I wasn't paying much attention to cinema listings. I'm quite sure it had a run at the Showcase, but it's over now =(.

So look a bit more nationally - anywhere nearby with it?

I don't know. It's only showing at about 6 Odeons, and none of them seem anywhere close. I guess I could try Star City in Birmingham, but that's a bit far away, and I'd have no idea how to get there from any of the train stations. Plus, I'm working tomorrow. Poo.
