but I only wish! :/
Work is mostly of the routine/boring kind, and not busy enough to help me overcome my inertia caused by bad sleep and neck/back related problems. Hopefully my new mattress really will arrive this week, because the old one is just plain and simple f-ing with my back/neck, as was very obvious from the first night I spent on it after my holidays. Also have a Wednesday appointment with my sister for a BowTech
treatment, which of course I haven't had since mid July. Oh and PMSing doesn't help with all this, obviously, but it seems we're almost past the "Pre" phase now, at least.
Of course I still haven't done any Aotearoa '09 image sorting, apart from what I did on the trip. I also still need to figure out how I can better fit the clips from my video camera on only one or two DVDs - when I try to do it with the software that came with the camera, I can hardly fit a handful of clips on one DVD-R/+R even though there aren't that many long ones, so that's not practical at all!
The sliver of light on the horizon is my weekend trip to NYC - leaving directly from work on Friday 25th mid morning, and coming back again directly to work on Monday 28th. No big plans except visiting a friend and his daughter, and letting them show me around Queens. *counts the days*
Watched three films made in/about NZ and particularly the Maori over the weekend: River Queen
, Whale Rider
(again), and Once Were Warriors
. All three are good in their own ways, and funny enough, all three feature yummy Maori actor Cliff Curtis
in an important role. :) Of course a not so likeable one in the latter (OWW
) - it's one of those films that is difficult to watch in places, but the performances were fantastic all around. It really deserves its good reputation! As does Whale Rider
, of course, and I also liked River Queen
Oh well. Time to go back to work... until sometime later!
