So I got up this morning thinking thinking that I'd do some laundry. Well, I walk back to the laundry room and the floor is all wet. not flooded, just wet. the cold water hose had a drip. I'm a competent person and changed the hose, although it was a headache. the old hoses had to be ancient and it took forever to loosen and remove them. This isn't what made me angry. I actually kind of like doing things like that.
In amongst my "labor" I get text messages this morning from Blair. I don't know as I've ever had a person in my life I've loved and loathed so much at the same time. I never hated Jordan with the avarice that I have for Blair. My morning starts with a 9AM text: I may have to start selling drugs. I need more money. My only reply is "sorry." I even got a pay raise and it's not helping. I am going to start Christmas shopping ASAP. What the fuck are you whining about? That you have to spend a few hundred less on Christmas than you thought? Blair, we've already had this conversation. You are not eating ramen and skipping the electric to make sure the house pmnt gets made. You know who is? ME you stupid selfish bitch. shut your fucking pie hole and be grateful that you aren't worried about turning on the heater or that you aren't worried that you won't eat for a few day so you can buy your baby formula. I'm so angry. I want to shake her and yell at her.ugh
Who's got a a bottle of wine and a new job? THIS GIRL!
As briefly mentioned before, I interviewed for a job on Saturday. It went pretty well, I thought. He told me he would let me know later in the week. Well, it must have gone really well, he called me today. He extended me an offer for the payroll clerk position. It's a kind of significant raise, like 25% raise, not kidding. Health insurance after 90 days, 401k and vacation after a year. Also, after 90 days, I become eligible for I think 25% commission on labor contracts. That makes more sense if I mention I will be working for a staffing company. working in an office, general answering phone for reception purposes. yada yada
Gods, I'm so excited.
Had a job interview today. I hope it went okay. I think it did.
Sept 30 is Lucy's 2 year anniversary of arriving at my house. She's my sweet baby girl. I adore my girl dog and am glad everyday that she's here. I blame a lot of things on her and claim her to be a genius. she refuses to build my teleporter. She's snuggley though, so it's okay.
Happy Birthday, Amigo.
Yes, I use your own card for a happy birthday.
A few thoughts on Resident Evil:Retribution:
Firstly, the main thing that struck me about the movie was it's video game-esque format. That may seem like a strange comment for a video game movie, but hear me out. I have been an ardent fan of the RE series from games to movies. While building on the games the movies have taken a different route and have always had a more cinematic form. they are a story arc start to end. IN this final installment, Paul WS Anderson seems to have made a lazy in the writing of this one compared to the rest. I kind of felt like I should have had a controller through a lot of the movie. Red Queen popping up on the screen to give orders did nothing for me.
Second, I like the music in this film the best out of any of them, and I like the music in the first a lot.
I'm about to laundry list here, I hate the costuming, I wish The Redfields had been in it, the logistics of rescuing a deaf girl from a zombie filled Umbrella compound seem like they should be more complicated, you have no chance to connect with any of the characters besides Alice, there's no real development, the Asian lady's acting was awful, I don't care if she's blonde in the video game, they should have let Jill Valentine stay brunette.
While I felt it more video game-ish I kept being surprised. I kept waiting for scenes to happen and they didn't. A different turn was taken. This happened like 3 times, it was a little refreshing.
On the whole, the acting was awful. However this did not bother me as I was watching a Resident Evil Movie. The set design was pretty impeccable and kind of gorgeous. Staging has never been a problem for this series though.
It was nice to see faces from the earlier movies and I understand the decision to not give them character depth, but it still annoys me.
