Whinge. Monday whinge.

I am in danger of becoming repetitive, but here it is anyway. I want my weekend to be longer!
Two days is not enough time. I want twice as much. I’ll take Monday and Tuesday as my extra two days thank you very much.

This weekend I visited my parents with Giffy, had Buffy game with Svend and others and then watched a v cool movie. It was cool. Sunday Zephfi came over and we watched Fruits Basket while other people saw Van Hellsing.
I used to want to see Van Hellsing but the more I found out about it the less I wanted to. For one Hugh Jackman doesn’t do anything for me. Plus he looks silly with long flowing hair. Then Kate Beckinsdale is in it and she was in Underworld. Seriously. Then it got terrible terrible reviews and I came to thinking “Hey, it’s $14 to see a movie now. $14 is actually quite a bit of money to throw away on something I don’t want to see. I will keep my $14.”

So Fruits Basket is great even the third time you watch it. Then after a game of Beanie with certain people who are very good at Beanie, Lee and I watched, uhm. Fruits Basket. But it was from later in the series, you know.
I also got some scrapbooking done and some quilting. Good Jenni.

  1. Saturday was very cool – Buffy RPG goodness followed by kick-ass movie. Much fun.
    Jenni – I must borrow Fruits Basket when you can bear to part with it!
    Morgue – the flash new cinema in Wgtn with the comfy seats is $14 on a weekend ($12 during the week). Sad old Manners Mall is about $9.50, but not too many people go there any more. Around $12 for Embassy and Paramount etc. last time I went there.

  2. I haven’t been in NZ for about 9 months, but I think that the Rialto was still around $9 which is pretty damned reasonable. Then if you buy a Radio Active card you get student rates. And if you date a projectionist you get to go for test screenings (seeing the films before they’re open to the public) for free šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚

  3. i love the Readings seats – i’m sure i only enjoyed The Time Machine cos it was my first time in Readings and i was just so comfy!! and i’ve almost napped in another couple!!
    the CineLounge is quite nice too, altho i didn’t really get the chance to make optimum use of the facilities. ideally, we should have got there really early, ate much free popcorn and drunk free drink, then lounged about for an hour or so after the movie too.

  4. hello! I’m a new random stalker-ish person, who has recently discovered stonesoup… yay for adding more blogs to my every-increasing list to read.
    But erm, anyway… For those who have seen Van Helsing, I’d like to suggest this very fun page, Van Helsing in 15 Minutes:
    Contains spoilers of course. V funny.
