On a forum I visit sometimes, there was a thread asking "what have you done this weekend?" This is what I've done -
Yesterday I watched an online screening of the opera "Billy Budd", which I've been looking forward to for quite a while. After watching it through once, I went back and re-watched some of the best bits. Then had a craving for my "special mashed potatoes" so made them. Then washed my hair and watched a LoveFilm disc.
Today I finished a book I've been enjoying "The Orphan Master's Son", whilst drinking coffee and eating bourbons, then I watched the Tom Hardy documentary about poaching on ITV Player. Plans for the rest of the day involving making tea next, having a bath whilst starting on my next library book. Then I may watch a DVD as there doesn't seem to be much decent on TV tonight.
And then I realised I must be getting old.
1: I watched an opera.
2: I liked it so much I went back to watch some bits again.
3: I got excited by mashed potatoes.
4: I read a book.
5: I watched a documentary about rhino poaching.
6: I borrow library books.
What my weekend should have been like.
Wellll... Saturday day time I went up town and spent £60 on clothes and had a McDonalds Happy Meal. Then I went to Tesco and bought a shit-ton of alcohol and got ID'd. Then I went to Adele's house and we got good and drunk and then went up Wetherspoons and then Embryos nightclub.
Today I have a stonking hangover, so went to McDonalds for a mcmuffin. Then I went back to bed.
I'm just not cool any more. Or perhaps just not 18 any more. Those were the good old days. ;)
