Funny People

September 12, 2009

28th of August, 2009
Day 2 outside the bedroom. Uncool. I went over to our neighbors (all the houses are the same in this estate) who I’d never met before and explained my woeful story, and asked if I could check if any of the keys in their doors would fit my bedroom lock? Maybe the corresponding bedroom in their house? They were really nice about it, but no luck. They couldn’t find half the door keys, sadly. The lady of the house explained that they had taken they keys out of most of the doors in case one of the kids might lock themselves in or what not. I wish my mother had taken my keys off me, then I wouldn’t be in this lil’ pickle. Oh well, it makes for full “Something New” entries, however dull the subject may be.
What I learned today, however, is that Judd Apatow and Adam Sandler used to be room-mates (or is it roomates?). I saw Funny People today. I really liked it. I love all the main characters, and there were some great laughs. I saw a review on Teletext that only gave it 2 stars and a bad review. It may not have been what the reviewer was expecting (probably a more Superbad/Pineapple Express (LOVE THEM) type of film that’s jam-packed with one-liners) but that doesn’t mean it was bad. It wasn’t. I’d see it again. I’ll probably buy it someday, anyway. I want to own the full Apatow collection. I’m not even sure if you can get things like Undeclared on DVD, but I’ll get everything else. I will. You’d think I’d have more exciting plans for any money I make in the future. Well, I do. I want to go to America. I want to live outside of Ireland for a few years. I want to give to charity. I want to treat my Mum. If I ever came into a lot of money, I’d give it to my Mum. She needs it more than I do. I just want enough money to live comfortabley, and I know even that is a lot to hope for. I’m optimistic, though! Don’t begrudge me my optimism, readers. I’m not being cocky or over confident. I’m just taking advantage of the fact that the world hasn’t killed my spirit just yet!

I hope you’re not one of the 15%! (and hairy ladies)

15% of people asked in a Fitness Survey said that if the remote control for the television was lost or broken, they would sooner watch shows that they didn’t like on the channel it was stuck on, rather than get up of their fat arses and change the channel manually. Are they having a laugh? That’s ridiculous! I know it’s only 15%, and I don’t know how many people were surveyed in total, but still! Nobody should think like that! I know I watch a crazy amount of television myself but these people seriously need to get up off their holes and go for a jog. God almighty. I’m actually really annoyed by this.

Another thing I learned today, that also annoys me, is that women these days have more facial hair as a result of hormones in foods such as milk and chicken. Thanks alot, whoever’s responsible for this. I eat chicken nearly every day and milk is one of my favourite drinks. I’d really prefer not to have a beard when I’m 30, though. I’m screwed. I shall be the bearded lady.

The Wolfe Tones are playing in a small town in Ireland called Westport tonight for the Music Festival they have there. According to my accurate sources, Westport is the first town in Ireland to offer them to the public for free. Lovely of them, isn’t it?

The Usual Suspects

I watched The Usual Suspects for the first time tonight and I realised (well, my friend pointed out to me) that that great sketch on Saturday Night Live called “Andy’s Excuse” was from that. I won’t spoil anything, but if you’ve seen both then you know what I’m talking about.
That was a good movie.
