A Day in the Life: February 2014

I’m a day late for this again, for some reason I thought it landed on Saturday this time but it was actually meant to be 7/2 – a Friday – maybe I will just always be a day late. This part of Manda’s A Day in the Life link up. My previous entries can be found here.

Either way, this time around the account isn’t very interesting. If I told you all about Friday I would have documented a bad day at work and Saturday I stayed at home hiding from the sun. I also have no photos this time around because there wasn’t much of anything to take photos of.

After a terrible week back at work after taking leave I was looking forward to the weekend, although this really started on Monday – I really didn’t want to go back to work.

My day began with a late sleep in because not having an alarm to wake up to is one of the joys of the weekend. I lay about in bed for a while and thought about all the things I probably wouldn’t do for the day. In the end, we did go outside briefly to get some food and stuff but mostly we hid away inside because it was going to be another hot day.

I washed my hair because we were going out, normally I wouldn’t on a Saturday but it was looking, and feeling, a bit gross.. Ever since getting my haircut a few weeks ago it’s been getting greasy really easily and I’m not sure why.

The drink was quite a highlight, a local cafe nearby does an excellent thick shake so we bought one each plus a piece of Mars Bar Cheesecake and made our way home. The Mars Bar cheesecake was a bit of a disappointment, it looked a lot like this (but this isn’t the actual one, as I said.. didn’t take any photos) and had a chocolate base, cheesecake section and what tasted like mousse on the top. In theory, it sounds awesome but in reality it was pretty plain.

Good thing we had the thickshakes to keep us happy.

The afternoon was spent lounging around on my laptop and also reading some of my current book, Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates. I’ve read it before and really like it but find I’ve been struggling my way through it this time around. So, I decided to get back into it and red about 80 pages because giving up and having a nap.

After the nap and some further reading I came back to the world of the internet and looked up some recipe/how to videos on YouTube and wanted to make them all, but then remembered I’m pretty lazy when it comes to that stuff. So, instead of making some extravagant dinner we just made a meal with chicken and vegetables and sat down to watch Batman Begins.

Originally, it took me 3 attempts to watch this movie because I kept falling asleep and well, now I can see why. Half the movie is just character building and so dull and really.. do we actually believe Bruce Wayne/Christian Bale was turning 30? We estimated that he looked closer to 40 , the funny thing is that at the time it was released Christian Bale was only 30.. oops, sorry Christian. I also realised that Batman Begins was made in 2005 and this means I’ve been complaining about Christian Bale as Batman for 9 years and after the re-watch I still don’t like him. Also, why is he scared of bats? I know, fell down a well and a bunch of bats fluttered all over him.. so terrifying. I’d probably be more scared of falling down holes – you know, the actual thing that hurt him – than a bunch of bats. And don’t even get me started on what they did to the Batmobile..

To me, Michael Keaton is the best Batman.

Anyway, moving along.. there was icecream involved with watching the movie so that was nice.

The night ended with doing some more internet things and going to bed, so yes, a mostly non eventful day.

    Stopping by from the link up.

    I got all excited about the Mars Bar cheesecake, so when you said it wasn’t good I got all disappointed. Awwww. But at least you got icecream later :-D

    Bummer about the Mars Bar cheesecake not living up to expectations! It sounds like it would be really good if pulled off well. Then again, I am never one to turn down a Mars Bar :D

    Batman Begins is my least favorite movie in the Christian Bale Batman trilogy. My favorite, of course, is The Dark Knight Rises, because Health Ledger as the Joker. For obvious reasons!
