After leaving work, I met up with a friend to exchange belated Christmas gifts and have a nice lunch. Neither one of us could muster up any enthusiasm to do much after that so I dropped him off home and headed to my mom's. Her gift I purchased on ebay had arrived and I wanted to drop it off. Easier said than done and she decided to unload about some things that lead to serious discussions. Not that I don't want to listen, but she always manages to pick the times when my brain is fried and I'm exhausted to have these talks. I managed to escape around 8pm with a mention of getting home before all the drunk drivers hit the streets. Works. Every. Time. ;)
So, I got home, channeled surfed for a bit, ate dinner, settled on a movie and soon after feel asleep. That was about 9:30. I woke up at around 1am. Yep, the new year came yet again without me noticing.
I ended up sleeping until around 10 this morning when I had to get up, run around frantically trying to neaten up my apartment, shower and get dressed because my Mom and I were to go see Kinsey. I don't have much to say about the film other than it was excellent (more humorous than I expected) and contained another Oscar worthy performance by Laura Linney. I hope this time she actually wins - she's so overdue. I had heard the film referred to as "controversial", but, I have to say, considering the subject matter, it was all handled in a pretty tame manner. Then again, I read vampire porn on a fairly regular basis. :p
Unfortunately, after the movie and more talk with Mom, I developed a major headache (not her fault though ;). I caught up on my Flist quickly and I'm sure I can't recall half of what I read. I only hope what I managed to comment on makes some sense. Then it was vegging on the couch watching 50 First Dates (funnier than I expected, but totally unbelievable), Clerks (believe it or not, I had never seen this before), and The Secret Lives of Dentists (Campbell Scott was good, but I was bored in many spots).
And that's been my weekend. Haven't written up my resolutions list yet. I'm actually doing one this year just because I think it will help me to set and achieve goals. Haven't watched a single one of the numerous DVDs I got. Haven't done my New Orleans recap yet. And my apartment is still a disaster area as far as I'm concerned. The laundry is threatening to break down the closet door. Sigh. There just is never enough time.
