Tuesday, August 5
Hmm, so yesterday was a very bad day. See my post for the proof. Today was a whole lot better. Sort of.
No results for my blood test yet, which is annoying / worrying me. I had it done on Friday for fuck's sake! Today is now Tuesday, sort it out. Stupid, crappy NHS. Well, at least it's free. I think I'm getting slightly worried about it, I keep thinking about stupid, completely unlikely things such as "What if
I'm HIV positive?" and other crap like that. Hypochondria? Maybe.
Another boring day today, sitting in front of the TV watching random crap. I even managed to fit in an entire film. That Final Fantasy film was on, the entirely computer-generated one. If I remember rightly, it got panned by the critics for being pretty without being a good film. I thoroughly enjoyed it, even though I've never played any of the games on a Playstation. It was definitely very much a piece of eye-candy, but the storyline was good. It had slightly too many film cliches in it for my liking, including: hero(ine) with a dark secret; powerful evil man with a personal vendetta to settle; injured soldier willing to stay behind and sacrifice his own life to save the others (always a black guy too, what's with that?); "you saved my life, now I'm going to save yours"; spirit winning over brute firepower; and to finish with, that all-time classic of foreshadowing the entire second half of the film with dream sequences early on. Hooray. It's still a worthwhile way to spend a couple of hours though.
I lost at snooker tonight too to Eddie, which I'm not happy about. He must have been practising since I played him last. Never mind, I still whip him at pool every time I play him, and seeing as that's a beer-related game, I'll cope.
