Funny People

September 12, 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!

It’s a lockout and I’m embarassed…

Okay kids, todays lesson is a much more humbling one on my part. First of all, I am an idiot, and I am well aware of this. I may try to write like I know a thing or two, but it’s all an illusion. When it comes down to common sense, I’m useless.
Last night I went out on the town, and I locked my bedroom door and took the key with me. Came home, the key is nowhere to be found. When I asked my friends and family if by any chance they had it they all replied “Why the hell did you take your bedroom key with you in the first place?” so I’m sure that’s what you’re thinking, too. I live at home with my Mum and brother and I like to have that little bit of privacy, thank you very much! I’d rather not have people going in and out of my room willy nilly when I’m not around, y’know? So anyway, now I am locked out of my room. I have no clean clothes, no iPod, no DVDs, no books, no charger, no hair dryer or hair straightener. None of that. What’s worse is that the person who I thought I had given my keys to to mind in her bag doesn’t have them. Where the fuck are they?! We went into the place where we were out last night to see if they had found any keys – no luck. We tried every key in the house to see if it would fit the door – no luck. We took off the handle and tried to screwdrive our way outta this mess, no luck. Why am I saying we and our? Anyway, here I am. I slept on the couch last night and it looks like I will tonight, too. Yay.
So the lesson is, don’t take your keys, or anything you don’t want to risk losing, out with you unless it’s absolutely necessary! Especially if you’re going to be drinking. That’s all I’m saying. Don’t be a fool like your Auntie Nadine. I’m sure none of you need telling but whatevs, it was a lesson learned the hard way for me. Now I’m suffering for 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.
