Post-Christmas Stress

Howdy Guys!

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree…

Hope everyone had a happy Christmas and if you didn’t…look on the bright side, you’re alive and that’s a lot to be grateful for in itself! 😛 In the meantime, Christmas is over and New years day is getting closer and closer, which is good news for Sherlock fans, such as myself, who are practically counting down the days till the new series starts. Overall, this Christmas I was quite lazy to be honest, I didn’t really bother with cards and gifts, as I used to. Heck, I even missed the boxing day sales.

I haven’t blogged  for a while, although, in my head something’s been nagging me to do so- plus, now it’s the holidays I don’t think I have much of an excuse..so here I am 🙂

I watched a film called ‘Children of Men’ yesterday which was quite interesting. Widespread infertility has occurred on a global scale. Britain has become a military state and the main character (Clive Owen) has become responsible for taking care of a pregnant African women (Clare-Hope Ashitey) and leading her to a sanctuary called ‘The Human Project’. I didn’t watch it from the start but as I was watching it got to a point where I just wanted to change the channel. Not because it was a bad film or anything but because I could not see a happy ending for any of the characters and it was starting to depress me. Apart from that, I enjoyed it; particularly the one part where in the midst of flying bullets and bombs everything came to a standstill and the soldiers created a path for the woman, her baby, Clive Owen’s character to pass through. Some of the soldiers even bowed and made the sign of the cross, which made me think of the Nativity. Other films I’ve watched are: We need to talk about Kevin, Pleasantville, One Day, Jane Eyre,The Magdalene Sisters and The Vow. Programs of the Month: Real Husbands of Hollywood (BET) and Breaking Amish (TLC). Eastenders has been entertaining every now and then.

Went to a buffet earlier today in Kings Cross called ‘KItchin N1’. When we arrived (after some hard searching and a lot of squinting at the google maps display on my phone) the place was…empty. Walking in to the empty restaurant I nearly laughed (in my head,of course) because earlier the other day I was actually considering reserving a table on the website. Thank God I didn’t because there clearly wasn’t any need for that. Buffets in themselves are a true test of strength, I think its safe to say they’re like drinking games…but for the stomach, not the liver. I usually get through an average of 2-3 plates before I surrender. Hey! Don’t judge me, I have to get my money’s worth.
