Tag: <span>IMAX</span>

I’ve almost finished my Christmas shopping. I have one more item (possibly in two parts) to buy and all that will be left will be to badly wrap said presents.

And I guess I should buy a Christmas tree at some point but that can wait.

Part of my longer term plan for the coming year, financially, was to get a credit card that offered 0% on purchases within the first year, and use that for the few remaining things I need to buy for the flat (a chair, some pots, some kitchen knives and maybe a new camera).

Alas I’m STILL waiting for my name to appear on the credit scoring system check against the electoral roll. It is more than a tad annoying. Nothing is hugely urgent though, although I may need new front tyres after yet another heavy snowy/icy night and the odd bit of sudden wheel spin.

As ever, with Christmas approaching, the weeks are starting to fill up with nights out and Christmas events. Mine kick off on Friday, with our team Christmas lunch, and include a viewing of It’s A Wonderful Life at the Glasgow Film Theatre, a possible ‘Moon’ night (weather dependant) run by Glasgow University, a couple of nights out to clubs, the Company Christmas ‘do’ and the Monday before Christmas a viewing of TRON: Legacy at the IMAX (wheeeee!).

After all that lot it’s just the usual eat, drink, sleep pattern from Christmas through to Hogmanay.

I’ve already got some things sketched out for the New Year, including a few gigs, a photography night class, and I’m thinking about a wee trip to London in February.

But enough of all that. One thing I won’t be doing, as I’ve rarely managed them in the past so thought I’d just skip them all together this year, is any “Best of 2010” lists. It’s been one helluva bumpy ride this year, but it’s ending on a high and I’d much rather look forward to 2011.

Life

2 weeks today I’ll be at the Fracture clinic to be ‘assessed’. Regardless I’ll be telling them to get this bloody resin cast off my leg as it is slowly driving me mad.

Of course there is an upside, although as Louise hasn’t yet allowed me to get a little bell so I can summon her when I want something (my toe scratched, the blinds titled 0.5 of a degree…), I’m pretty sure I’m not getting the most out of my enforced immobility.

In other exciting news, I’m finally getting around to reading the latest Harry Potter – The Order of the Phoenix. I’ve read the others and this one is following the same theme (boy goes to school, does magic, gets into trouble and no doubt saves the day at the end although not quite as there are two books left to go). The only problem is that I know who dies already.

I can thank my friend Susan for that. Sitting at a party she tagged into the end of the conversation in which I’d mentioned that I’d STILL to read the latest Harry Potter, but she obviously didn’t hear me say that as her opening remark was “Ohhh I couldn’t believe xxxxxxx died!”.

Cue perfectly timed comic silence before she realised what she’d just done. Bless her though, she felt really bad about it. Just as well I’m not a big fan!

Ohh and while I remember, people of Glasgow pay attention: Matrix Reloaded at IMAX. I’ll see you there!
