Tuesday the plan was to press play on a Sky+ recording (a very long Brad Pitt film) and record on my DVD HDD, and while that was doing its thing go to the cinema. Except my Sky+ box had a wobbly and I thought I wouldn’t get it rebooted in time. I was about to give up on going out when it kicked back into life and I went to see a film.
Yes Man is based on an idea Danny Wallace once had (which he wrote a book about) where he decided to start saying yes to things he wouldn’t normally. Of course this being a Jim Carrey film things are more in the unreality camp and some daft faces are pulled. But it’s not a serious biopic so that’s ok. In fact with the help of the lovely Zooey Deschanel it had a nice feeling about it. There weren’t any absolutely hilarious scenes but there were plenty of chucklesome moments, but still with this kind of niceness about it all.
I didn’t leave the cinema with a feeling of wanting to try 100 different new things, but the feelgood factor might just inspire viewers to be a little more positive.
Wednesday and today were spent at work. Nothing big was going off but I did feel like having a nice rest before the weekend’s events.
Doooomed, we’re all dooooomed - Or not, but then you never know. I guess I should look at saving these posts in case the Russians wipe us out. If I win the lotto then I’ll see if I’ve enough dosh spare to become the new Brad Fitz (or Frank) :)
