Fly, Birdies, Fly!

Today I went to see 2012 with Katherine.

I met up with her at Glenny station, even though the silly bugger stood behind a wall and couldn’t see her. Went to make an appointment for a haircut tomorrow (yep. Bee, I’m gonna get one) then went to get the tickets. Saw Charlie and Pricilla on the way and I failed to recognize Charlie because he dyed his hair and was wearing sunnies. I don’t think he appreciated it.

We had heaps of time before the movie starts so we walked to the McDonalds in the Glen were we sat and played on our DS. It was epic. Failed at Bomber-man but was an epic win in Mario Kart. Poor Katherine was winning until she got hit by a Bo-omb and blue spiny shell (are those the names?)

Then we walked back to Village only for me to want to get caramel popcorn from Coles. We walked all the way back, got the caramel popcorn – in my haste to be the one who pays I all but threw my coins at the check-out lady – then walked all the way back to Village and it was hot!

Anyway, we arrived at the cinemas way early anyway so we sat around a bit. Gave Katherine a big hug! Awwwwww.

Went into the cinemas and realized our seats suck. Besides there’s a strange teen Asian couple in front of us and it was awkward. So we moved to better seats but got kicked out when their owners came. Got new seats again and this time a bunch of dumb sounding Asians sat in front of us (I say dumb because in the movie the President of the United States is African-American and one of them asked, “isn’t he meant to look like Obama?”).

The movie was pretty good. Very cliche, and don’t get me started on the improbable way the main characters survived. There were also quite a few biblical symbolism in there. One of the funniest and dumbest bits was the main character Jackson having fallen down a huge crack in the ground in a van. By all means he should be dead, but nope he climbs back up and make it on a plane taking off. Also, he, an author, managed to drive through a collapsing city (literally) in a limo missing a door and without breaking it.

There was this guy in the movie called Charlie, who was a bit iffy in the head but he knew everything was happening. There was a scene where he stood before the ground erupting like a volcano and birds were just hauling ass outta there, and he stood there waving his arms and saying “fly, birdies fly!”

Well, won’t give more away. I do recommend seeing it on the big screen. It’s pretty funny at bits. It was a fun day too! Lots of laughs.

Hope to hang out with Katherine again some time.

Also, for many people, they’ve just finished all their exams. Congratulations, guys! To all those with a few more left; kill them good!


/edit Oh crap almost forgot! Today when Katherine and I were walking around the Glen, this really tall guy passed us. I was just making a short joke about her when the guy, instead of stepping aside so his arm won’t bump into Katherine, simply raised his arm above her head and kept walking.

Okay, now I feel better having said that.
