Just realised it has been a week. And I didn’t really miss it because mostly I am just distracted and feeling tired. I’m not sure why but I feel lethargic every single day and I swear that every passing second I am just struggling to stay awake it’s like someone injected sleeping pills into my bloodstream on a constant basis.
Finally taking a break from travelling for work. Enjoyed the short weekend trip to Hong Kong tremendously, I think it was one of the best combinations and formula for a holiday and I only wish I could have such holidays more often, but hopefully with a better spot of weather, lesser rain, lesser heat and humidity please thank you!
After catching Rum Diary on the flight, got another dose of JD in Dark Shadows. Must say that he’s looking good but in Dark Shadows I got reminded of Edward Scissorhands and Sweeney Todd all at once. I didn’t particularly think this was a stellar movie even if it boasted big names in its cast, who were we thought, under-utilised. Then I also decided that I was not going to miss another movie that I would have liked to watch in the cinema with the big-screen experience. The Avengers has been on my to-watch list for a while and with all these super heros thrown in what more can we want? Perhaps I expected too much from it or my fatigue got the better of me but I just thought the lead-up to the action towards the end was a tad slow and draggy. There were some funny moments though, and although I have never watched any of the Iron Man series, Robert Downey Jr. is awesome in this role. I would have preferred Edward Norton as the Incredible Hulk but Mark Ruffalo exuded a different kind of charm as Dr. Banner anyhow. The rest of them were also great to watch so probably it was just the story-telling that got a bit tired.
It was an activity-filled weekend that just passed and it felt like I did so many things even though once again, I had to miss church service. Let’s see what happens next weekend. I desperately want to go and get some shopping done but I’m terrible when it comes to wanting to do things because then it never happens. I tried this weekend and went home empty-ended except for food. Guess that’s where the priorities are now.
