Friday night saw me watching The Shawshank Redemption based on a very good story by Stephen King, one of the three stories in his book Different Seasons, which all became films. Shawshank was a couple of hours of excellent cinema, and served as a reminder that I'd like to see The Hudsucker Proxy again. Tim Robbins has not done as many films as I'd like to see him in, and I didn't realise that he was also in High Fidelty, which I saw a week ago... I suppose I wasn't looking for him.
Saturday night saw my second watching (it needs watching twice, though remains as incomprehensible the second time... although you're in on it) of Fight Club.
And now, my friends, it's Sunday. It's 4pm and I'm sitting in the office tidying up a few loose ends. Why? There are 4 reasons:
- I needed some coffee beans, and although I'm still without them, I managed to get to Starbucks and, at least, buy a nice frothy coffee as a consolation for their being out of the beans.
- I needed a walk, the coffee was an excuse for a walk - I like purpose if I'm walking
- I needed a change of scene - well, I didn't really, but I thought it might be more interesting to be somewhere other than the home or walking the streets for a few hours
- I wanted to get some work done (albeit for myself, rather than my employer) and needed somewhere with fewer distractions - read guitars... a guitar within arm's reach is a constant source of distraction at home
I rest my case.
