Just so y'all know we've wound our clocks forward 1 hour down here so we're a bit out of sync now. Actually, I think it's Queensland that's out of sync really, (I LOVE daylight savings!!) but I'm sure they'll catch up some time!
The sun didn't set til 7:30pm yesterday! Though, when I got up at 7am today, it was "really" 6am which is not cool. Apparently the first couple of weeks are a bit tough, but we'll get used to it I'm sure.
But not only did I lose an hour yesterday due to daylight savings, I also lost another hour and 40 minutes watching the WORST MOVIE EVER!!!!!!!! Hubs and I had a free night so we decided to watch "Forgetting Sarah Marshall". Now I'm going through the process of forgetting Forgetting Sarah Marshall. It should have had a warning on it saying "This is a crap video. Half way through I wanted to make a cup of tea." (Ref: Jimeoin) It was the biggest pile of poo I've ever watched. In fact, watching a pile of poo for an hour and 40 minutes would have been more bearable.
I thought it was going to be one of those gross comedies like Van Wilder or Knocked Up which I quite liked. But no. It was just hideously boring and cringe-worthy. I would have stopped watching after 15 minutes but Hubs thought we should give it a bit longer. After 45 minutes, it had gotten even worse, but now Hubs needed "closure". Closure shmlosure. I was uncomfortable and irritated and bewildered by the whole process. Luckily, my good friend Adele rang me with 10 minutes to go so I got out of watching the final blows.
I know what you're saying: why didn't I just get up and do something else? Well we were watching this drivel in bed on my laptop and I was enjoying snuggling up to Hubs so at least I got SOME enjoyment out of the process.
I rate this movie negative 87 stars; worst.... movie.... ever....
