The 11th & 12th; The total opposite of what I went there for.
The 11th of August.
Good eye day (for now, touch wood).
I feel this morning is going to be literally just one sentence because all I did was watch Sunday Brunch and write up a blog post. The end.
This afternoon was even less productive, because I just sat in the back room with sleepy kittens on my lap and watched terrible films on Netflix. First, I watched Girls With Balls, which is described by imdb as "All girls volley ball team The Falcons end up stranded in the middle of nowhere after their mini-van breaks down. Little do they know they landed in degenerate hunters' territory and the hunt is on. Thus begins a very long night where they must run for their lives and test their team spirit. But the girls are more resourceful than it appears. In the heart of the forest, the tables are about to turn between hunter and hunted..."
I don't know who wrote that, but none of the hunting takes place at night, so that is misleading. Plus, the tables don't really turn until the very end and not as many as that blurb would have you believe survive. The girls are very stupid and make a lot of noise which we all know is the last thing you should do when being hunted, and the gore is just comical - it cannot have been intended to be actually scary. I have just looked up some reviews and it seems to have just been a fun project for the director to indulge his passion for tacky special effects. Well, good for him! I enjoyed it very much.
Secondly, I watched The Babysitter, which is this: "Cole loves his babysitter Bee. She's hot, funny, and popular. One night, in a moment of defiance, Cole secretly stays up past his bedtime to discover she's actually a cold-blooded killer who's in league with the Devil. He now must spend his night evading Bee's band of killers who will stop at nothing to prevent Cole from spilling their dark secret. It's up to Cole to survive the night (and blow up a few people along the way)."
This is mainly ridiculous because Cole has many opportunities to escape these people which he does not take. As soon as he sees a guy get stabbed in the head, he doesn't run back to his bedroom and abseil out of the window, he stays to see what happens until the guy is really very dead and there's blood everywhere. He has another chance when the police have come (but have been killed) and he could run out the front door, but instead he runs PAST the front door and up the stairs? I know it is a trope but it's still enormously annoying.
For almost the whole time I was sat with the kittens, they were very nicely behaved! All good and sleepy, except for when Barnaby tried to play with the curtain and I had to tell him off. He did then come down from the windowsill so I had to give him plus points. I need to put pictures of him and Brooke on the website to advertise them. Blue can't go on there because he is too pretty and we'll get a deluge of people who only want him and nobody will want the other two. Poor lovely kittens.
The 12th of August.
Ugh I feel like shit this evening because I've had a crappy gym session and it makes me want to eat all of the things. When I started going there two weeks ago, I got on the Boditrax machine which analyses various things about your body such as your weight, fat percentage, muscle percentage, etcetera, and it took a set of measurements. I got on it again today and it appears that I've lost muscle and gained fat which is the total opposite of what I went there for, and so then I felt like everything I was doing was pointless and wrong. Plus people kept being on the machines that I wanted, a lady had the 2kg dumbbells that I normally use (I know it's only been a couple of weeks but they're mine now), some crap fell from a vent directly above the TRX equipment that I use and I'd rather not breathe that in, so generally I felt pretty terrible about the whole thing. I have booked in to do a "programme review" with someone on Wednesday to hopefully make my time spent there more efficient and get the results that I want!
This morning was better - I went to the dentist and the hygienist, and they were so delighted with me and my teeth-cleaning-prowess that they gave me a thank you letter that comes with a £5 voucher to use on things like floss picks! I also talked to Liam about if there is a way to whiten my teeth without the gel that I tried before, because I couldn't use that as I found it physically painful due to my sensitivity. He said there isn't another method, but they do have different concentrations now, so it might be worth looking at. He said to look and see if I still have the trays, which I'm pretty sure I don't because it was several years ago. I will have a look in the bathroom and in my bedroom drawer but I think it is unlikely!
