Funny People

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!
