Anxiety, aliens, sharks and sushi

Weekend report. Saturday was some chores, and then hanging out with Amythest and Nymaz. Took one of Amythest’s kitties to the vet, she’s going fine. Dropped her back off at home, and we went to the movies. Saw the new ‘Independence Day’ flick, which was fun, but not as good as the original. The magic of the original would have been hard to recreate. The effects were good, and the background of the movie was actually pretty positive. Plus aliens with tentacles are always good to me.

Post the movie, we went to a local sushi buffet. Nothing out of this world, but it was pretty tasty. We then ran a couple of errands to kill time before the second movie…’The Shallows’.

‘The Shallows’ was your basic woman vs nature, done rather well. The shark, while it was acting kind of outside the norm for Great Whites, wasn’t completely off the wall like most shark movies. The actress, Blake Lively, was good. The shark effects were really good. It was a really good flick, and nice to show sharks as not utter demons, while still showing them as a creature you should be afraid of. 8 or 9 fins in the water.

Came home after the movie, took forever due to construction on the highway I didn’t notice til it was way too late. Oh well, I had Lovecraftian podcasts to listen to so I just made the best of it. Got home, went to bed with a book. One of the ‘Aliens’ novels that originally came out in the 90’s. Nice bit of xenomorph fluff. Went to bed, slept, dreamed some weird dreams, and woke up full on anxious. Tried to stay in bed, fail. Took my meds, and I’m camping out at the Desk of Doom ™ til things settle down, then I’ll go down and do laundry and stuff at Amythest’s as usual.

So yeah, that’s my weekend. The anxiety is starting to fade a little, that’s good. Hope it decided to bugger off for a while. I can dream at least. At least next weekend is a 3 day weekend. Ok, enough rambling. Catch you all later.
