I love my writing, but perhaps sometimes I think I do take it all way too seriously. So I've been taking more time than usual away from the computer and it's been great because when I come back I'm focused on what I need to do rather than procrastinating on the Internet.
In my re-discovered real life I try and go to the cinema once a week, and last night I saw 'Bridesmaids'. Although not really my kind of film (chick-flick) I have to say the trailers were hilarious and it was hard to find an excuse to my cinema buddy not to see it when I'd been laughing so hard at just a few clips.
You might think that an all-female film would be a good excuse to bitch at men, but actually there wasn't one anti-man joke in it. There was plenty of true-life observational stuff, but nothing that would antagonise or alienate the male audience.
It was touching, funny, frantic, excruciating to watch in some parts and quite gross in others but it never failed to deliver a laugh. I left the cinema literally crying with laughter and with a remembered appreciation for the group Wilson Phillips. I've never seen so many women in a cinema audience all leaving with such buzz. This film was a tribute to women over 30 everywhere. Must see, must see!!
And the best part... I am in such a good mood today, I quite literally feel like there's nothing I can't do. In fact, since seeing the film I've submitted a story and written a bio for an upcoming publication... so you see, laughter really is the best tonic!
