PHOTO #95b: Ear Piercing!

I finally went and did something I said I was going to do. I got my cartilage pierced. It was pretty painful, but no more painful than I was actually expecting it to be. I had to do this post in two pictures because of the fact that my mousepad is broken, and therefore I cannot crop or cut and paste pictures, unless I steal my moms mouse. Which she is presently using. Plus, I wanted to show a before and after. So, the first photo is before she pierced it, she’s telling me all the cleaning processes and showing me the earring I chose, and that sort of thing. You like my scared/excited/nervous facial expression? And, you know what the second photo is. Clearly. Yes, my hair is messy. I threw it up in a bun because I assumed I should have it up when she pierced my ear, I was right.

Out of all the options that I had for earrings, I thought this was the most “me”. If it had been in gold I would have died and gone to heaven. But alas! They did not. So, I had the choice of this in silver, or a gold small stud, which is apparently more painful to sleep on and slower at the healing process. So I chose this one. I am in love with it.

I am really excited to start experimenting with earrings, but I have to wait a while until it heals. And that’s okay. It was, and is, totally worth it.

I can’t wait to experiment more with things, and finally do stuff that I’ve always wanted to do but been too lazy, or too scared.

PHOTO #93: Weirdo Me

So yea I was freaking out for a few minutes because I thought I may have forgotten to take a picture on this day. Turns out I took one weird picture. I was at work in the office, and I thought there was something wrong with my parting, so instead of going to the bathroom to check in a mirror, the lazy person that I am, I took a photo. Clearly my angling skills are not so great. But anyways, this is the photo that came of it.

I have nothing else to say about that. Other than look at my super long eyelashes! Or don’t…whatever…

Today was the first shift where it hasn’t been ridiculously busy straight through the day. There were quite a few moments where we all could just hang out and talk in the lobby without one guest around to overhear. Those are the moments I love. No stress, no running around, no responsibilities. The moment disappears quickly, but the fact that they even exist right now is all I need.

For the second movie I chose Serendipity (Kate Beckinsale, John Kusak). Although it starts out with both characters searching for a present for their partner, it is even less about christmas that the last film. It literally skips over the rest of the holiday season and goes a couple of years into the future. Either way, it’s mostly set in the winter months, and that’s why it was my choice. And this is a film I have loved for a long time. Did I mention all the films I have chosen to watch are Romantic Comedies. Just ’cause.

Other than watching this film I did nothing all day, besides working. But, these days that’s nothing new to add to my day. That’s a part of the boringness now. Though we did just hire a bunch of people, so I am quite excited to train, and have some new fresh faces around.

PHOTO #91: Holiday Spirit

Surprisingly, I had another day off today! That’s two days off in a row. I haven’t had something like that in over a month and a half. So with all this free time to think, I decided that I needed to try and get into the holiday spirit.

Usually when December finally rolls around, I become like Scrooge, and get all bitter and angry. Especially listening to the Christmas music. Ugh. But, most of the time, I don’t actually have a reason to be that way. I’m usually just mirroring everyone else’s mood. So, in order to get myself into the Holiday spirit, in yet another attempt to try and be more positive, I decided that I am going to try and watch a Holiday themed movie almost every night until Christmas. So fittingly for my first choice I watched The Holiday (Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law). It’s an adorable, semi-cheesy film based around, though not about, Christmas and New Years. I love this film because it covers a lot of interests I have. Travel, movies, music, and writing. If you watch it check out the massive wall of movies Cameron Diaz’s character has in her home. I strive for a collection as vast as that, though I am no where near that number.

No, I didn’t give up on the blog. I did take a little break though, just from posting, not from taking pictures. I have been keeping up with those. I just needed to take some time off and relax. Plus, I’ve had absolutely nothing to write about. So, be prepared for a few seriously short posts. Like seriously. That’s the end of this one…

This is my cats “I hate you, get away from me now!” look. That’s how she always looks at me. I had the day off, and stayed at home and did nothing. Though I did make the decision to start watching holiday-ish movies. Updates on that in the next post.

PHOTO #89: My New Cool Vest

This is the new vest I got today! I’m super excited about it, it’s really awesome. There’s not much else I can say about it. The brand name on it is Vero Moda…

So today we had a big celebrity come into the theatre: Carly Rae Jepsen! I’m not a fan of her recent stuff, yes it is catchy, but also not really my style of music. But I do love her first album, the song Tug of War was my favourite back when it came out. I was pretty excited that she came in, I haven’t seen many big celebrities recently. It was sort of a weird event though. It was held in the VIP and they had about three people that won a contest and then each of them got to bring around ten or so of their friends, and they got to see a movie with her…and the movie they watched was Life of Pi. Now, I’m sure that is a great movie, I have no doubt seeing the crowds that are still piling in to see it. But if I were watching a movie with a celebrity I don’t know if that would be it. Either way, it was a cool gesture. And it would have been a pretty exciting event for those lucky winners…if CRJ had shown up on time. But no, as all celebrities do, as though it’s some rule they have to follow to be in the celebrity crowd, she was half an hour late. And she came in with about four big burly security guards.

┬áNow I’m no expert when it comes to celebrities, but isn’t that a bit excessive? I mean for one she’s Canadian. For two, she’s a singer with two hit songs…is she really in that much danger at a movie theatre? I mean, Steven Tyler wandered in off the street like it was nobody’s business last week (no, I wasn’t working :(…) and didn’t have any sort of protection. And then after the film wandered down Yonge street to-and I’m only guessing here-attend and perform at his own concert that night at the Air Canada Centre…I suppose that’s one of the things with some celebrities. If you really want to be popular you have to make yourself seem more important.

Either way if they are famous I will usually get all excited just so I can tell my friends that I saw them in person. Even though I would like to think that I am all cool and collected around famous people. I’m totally not. But there’s just a certain atmosphere some celebrities bring around with them that changes the way you react around them.

And I guess that my realization for the day is that there’s a big difference between celebrities, some of them just want to hear their music played on the radio, and others just want to play their music.

That’s just my opinion though.

Nothing much happened on the 1st. But, a friend asked me to graffiti something for her during my shift. There wasn’t much I could do with it because she had a lot of specifics, but here it is. It says DR34M. Which is her “tag” apparently.

Seriously I am struggling with anything to say right now. Nothing happened. At all.

I don’t know why but I feel like the woman that is in the movie The Witches of Eastwick came to the theatre. You know the one who starts spitting up cherries at some point? Veronica Cartwright. The raspy voice and her face caught my eye when she asked about the parking. And I couldn’t place it at the time but it just came to me where I recognized her from. It very well may not have been her, but that’s who I was reminded of.
