After work on Monday, when I got home, I looked at myself in the mirror and thought "wow, when did I rub my mascara all over my eyes? How long have I been walking around looking like this?" and then I had that moment when I realised "oh wait, that's not makeup, that's just my face..." Clearly I'm pretty tired, so tired that I've got panda-eyes, and I'm attributing it to my crazy lifestyle of late - I have not had a weekend at home for a month, it's been taken up with going out for drinks, engagement parties, hen parties, all kinds of things. Under the category of "all kinds of things" can be found: trying karaoke for the first time, and taking a shot of chilli vodka. One I would recommend, the other I really would not.
So this week Adam and I have taken it easy. Seriously easy. One night I went to bed before 9:30 - it was amazing. Ten hours of sleep is just the best. And last night we decided to have a good old fashioned dinner and a movie date - we finally went to see Moonrise Kingdom which I have been longing to see ever since I first heard it was coming it, I am a big Wes Anderson fan.
We grabbed some burritos, snuck them into the cinema, and I munched away contentedly on mine while Adam didn't as he has a personal rule against eating burritos in cinemas - you learn over time it's best not to ask why when it comes to these sorts of things.
And frankly, I loved it! Both the burrito and the film. I would recommend Moonrise Kingdom to anyone, it's hilarious, peculiar, heartwarming, bleak and ever so sweet - a delightful melting pot of contradicting emotions.
