Movie night

Yesterday ran a little longer than it was supposed to. Originally I was rostered for 7hrs11minutes of work, but, with a few extensions, I clocked in over nine hours before I made it back home.

Luckily that didn’t manage to get in the way of our planned evening. The plan was an hour or so at the pool, then watch a movie with my wife and a friend.

We watched The Hangover 3. Not the newest anymore, but I hadn’t watched it yet.

My Wife and I, in the past, went to the movies every week, sometimes more than once. We had a card with Hoyts, so we could get two tickets for the price of one.

Add money for popcorn, ice creams, and drinks; and the theatre weren’t doing to bad from us.

But the card ran out after a year or so, so as well as having to buy two tickets, the prices just kept going up and up.

Now I’d be surprised if we went to two movies a year. Instead I wait until they come out on Blu-Ray and then purchase them there, maybe waiting a little for the price to come down.

The theatre loses out, but with their prices, they kind of brought it on themselves.

Either way, last night we watch Hangover 3, and I enjoyed it. Had to go to bed pretty shortly afterwards for an early start, but still a good evening.

Only problem I had was looking through my movie collection, I own one and three, but couldn’t find Hangover 2. Guess I’ll have to look it up sometime when I’m shopping.

When it rains, it pours

Ok, so that’s a saying, and not really what this post is about. Though just to let you know it is raining out there as I type, which sucks for tourism, as we have a cruise ship visiting the city today.

What this post is about is pain. I’m in pain, any it’s really bugging me. Driving causes stress on certain joints, and right now my wrist (right) is really hurting. The more annoying part of it is that I’ve forgotten to bring any painkillers with me, so,I just have to put up,with it.

This is largely my fault, due to being lazy. I don’t exercise much. I go to the pool twice a week, sometimes more for some aqua-jogging, but not much else. I need to do so e exercise to increase my wrist and arm strength as we’ll.

I had a little thing that you squeeze with your hands, but I used it so infrequently, that I lost it when I moved house, so now I don’t have it, and have to put up with sore wrists.

Will have to get back to it I guess, as pain sucks, but I’m lazy 🙁
