Things I Did Yesterday 19/05/08

Today I am a quiet, peaceful forest, but yesterday I:

- Didn’t write in the morning. Bad Andrew. But I got up a little late, so I was short on time. And obviously couldn’t do it at any other time of the day.

- Met Doug for lunch. Sat in front of the museum, which was rather pleasant.

- Worked mainly on ComTrac and trying to figure how I could wheedle Thursday off.

- Worried about the lack of honeymoon options.

- Left work early due to time owed. Went home and did the dishes.

- While working on the dishes I put on the Green Mile commentary. I like the Green Mile. While it does have its flaws, I think it’s vastly underrated. More importantly, I had never listened to a Frank Darabont commentary before. He is brilliant; like John Carpenter or Ridley Scott, he has the perfect mix of anecdote and instruction (without Scott’s patronising, cigar-chomping tone). He’s quite the motormouth and it really feels like he prepares for the commentary, as there are a lot of “but we’ll talk a bit more about that later on” moments. I only got about halfway through this time (there are only so many dishes), but I highly recommend this for anyone with an interest in film. I’ll definitely track down his other commentaries. I must grab a copy of The Mist on region one. Loved that film.

- Had leftovers for dinner. Planned to cook a roast, but just wasn’t that hungry.

- Had a bath. Read some comics, including the latest Punisher. I can’t wait to see where Ennis is going with this. After such an amazing run on the title, I really do hope he ends on a bang.

- Did more honeymoon research, which wound up taking most of the night.

- Watched another Pushing Daisies with Alex and pretty much decided that I’m gonna give the next season a miss.

- Dreamed I was trapped in a YMCA locker room by a herd of aggressive unicorns. Not sure what it means.

    From the mouth of a shrink: The YMCA locker room = big gay fantasy; the unicorns coming to get ya = a wish for big pointy cocks to poke you
