Morning Pages Entry – December 15, 2013

So, here we go with another bunch of ridiculously snowy day in London. I guess winter is truly upon us, and there’s nothing to be done about it. Given that I’ve started babbling about the weather, should be a sure sign that I really don’t have a whole lot to talk about this morning. I was out to play some squash yesterday, or more accurately to hit the ball a few times, just doing drills, as my ankle is not quite up to stuff. It hurt quite a bit actually, but that’s to be expected I suppose, as I haven’t really given the turned ankle a ton of time to heal. But, just doing some solo drills is not a bad idea any. I should really regrip that racquet though. The one peter put on when he restrung it is a bit oversized, and my fingernail ended up cutting into my finger a bit too much. It looks like karen is about to come downstairs and interrupt my writing, because she can’t get out of the driveway. Although, maybe not, as I just heard the door close for a second time. She can be so needy some times. I wouldn’t want to ruin my perfect record of getting all these words down in under 20 minutes at a time, because she needs me to shovel some of the driveway. Jennifer has our car again, which is getting just a bit annoying, given that we finally put snow tires, and she takes it and leaves me stuck driving the crappy van when we have probably our second worst snow day so far this year. Looks like samantha just texted me again from the point claire (near montreal) swim meet, but I’m doing my best to hold off on it until I can get this journaling done. Ah yes, and yesterday we watched a totally forgetable movie called “After Earth” starring will smith and his son jaden. That was pretty disappointing I must agree. I went looking for my lord of the rings dvds this morning to watch with the new sound system, but couldn’t seem to find them. Their sure to wipe that bad taste of will smith nepetismistic movie out of my mouth. There were just so many plot holes in that movie, I’m not sure how it ever got to the screen. I’d say they filmed just enough of the movie to make a decent trailer to get me sucked into buying it. I think, perhaps I should have read the reviews, but it was a bit of an impulsive rental. Ah well. Another little piece of entertainment that I seem to be struggling with these days, is GTA5. I spent a few hours playing it after the movie last night, and I must admit that I don’t seem to be quite getting what all the attraction is about it. Maybe I’m just getting old, or perhaps it’s not really my type of game, but I can’t say I’m overly thrilled with it. Perhaps, I just haven’t given it enough time yet to sink it. Sure, the dialogue writing is pretty snappy, and rude, and misogynistic, and a bunch of other nasty shit, but it is pretty well done. The graphics are well, nothing like the kind of eye candy I’m used to watching in say like the Uncharted series. But, maybe that has more to do with the fact that some fictious downtown california city doesn’t really have the majestic vistas of mountains and tropical rainforests found in UnCharted. Ah well, we’ll give it a bit more time, and see how it pans out. I really would, like to find my dvds though. I can’t even find the case for the lord of the rings dvds. They must be around here somewhere. That whole cupboard/wall unit in the family room needs a major cleaning up and reorganizing. It’s pretty hard to find anything in there. Maybe I’ll pull some of out to go in those footstools that karen bought with the hidden storage compartments. Even if I just pulled all the disney VHS tapes, that would be sure to make a ton more room. Then, maybe I could find the DVD’s I’m looking for. I can even find the cases for the lord of the rings ones. They can’t be that far away. I’m not sure where the cases would be, if their not in the cabinet. Well, this is not one of my most inspiring writing episodes, I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing. Maybe I’m just a bit too relaxed to need my writing therapy this morning 😉
