Today was a pretty good day. I had a bit of trouble getting to sleep last night (I was awake until after 2:30), so I ended up staying in bed until 9:30. I’m still a bit tired, but I’m functional for now. I got up this morning and got online. I then took my shower and got ready to go to P’s house. She and I watched a couple of movies and ran out for a short shopping trip. Overall, it was a pretty good day.
One of the movies we watched was “The Convent.” I think that movie defies any real classification or description. It was a horror movie of sorts. But it was a bit…well, I guess camp would work. There were a lot of stereotypes involved. You know, you had the sex fiend boy that bragged that he could sleep with any girl they saw (“just give me five minutes”), the frat-boy jock and his ditzy cheerleader girlfriend, and of course, the woman that everyone thinks is crazy who has to be called on to save the day at the end. So there was a lot about the movie that was cheesy and predictable. But on the same hand, it wasn’t a total nacho-fest, either. It had a certain serious quality to it. The only real problem I had with the movie is that the first person to die was the best character in the whole show. I’m sorry, but anyone who can sit up in the middle of the ritual where she’s about to be sacrificed and accuse the leader of being a pretentious goth wannabe is aces in my book.
I got to meet P’s new dog, too. He’s big and lovable, but boy is he going to be a handful. He’s young and excitable. If my sister’s dog, Cody, was still around, the two of them would make great playmates, I think. They’re both nuts. Speaking of which, Precious is going crazy looking for a playmate. Bandit isn’t interested in playing (his skin is still bothering him) and with the kinds and my sister’s dogs gone, my poor little cat has no one who’s willing to play with her at the drop of a hat. So she’s been raring around and trying to get everyone’s attention. It’s actually quite cute.
