Holidays... Happy Days

Bookmark and Share
Many exciting things have taken place over the past few days. I saw some great movies, that is one of my favorite things to do so that was enjoyable. "Yes Man" with Jim Carey on Xmas Eve, that was a barrel of laughs. Benjamin Button and The Spirit on Xmas Day.

On Xmas Eve I went to YES MAN by myself, and oddly enough, I was one of many individual movie goers. There were about 12 people in the theater and the majority of them were alone, like me! After learning about my holiday plans, one of my friends said, "that is sad" but when you don't celebrate Christmas and everybody else does, what else are you supposed to do? It is not sad if you don't celebrate Christmas. I don't have any emotional connection to the holiday and I don't have any happy childhood memories of Christmas to refer back to, I didn't celebrate it. I'm sure if you went to the movies alone on Ramadan I wouldn't think it was sad.

On Christmas day, I went to Benjamin Button - which was sad only because I cried from start to finish. I cry at the sight of old people and there is nothing I can do about it, so I cried because he was old, I cried because he was alone, I cried because they were in love, I cried, I cried and cried. But I really liked the movie, Brad Pitt was fantastic and the did a great job of making him look young!

The Spirit on the other hand SUCKS ASS! DO NOT SEE THIS MOVIE.

In other news, I finally finished my first project, I had a hand in a travel website and it is finally FINISHED. Soon, I start the travel blog portion, it is not up yet but you can check out the travel site for now Artun Travel

Here is a photo to whet your appetite.

Now a week at work and time to prepare for my NYE plans. Good times.

I frequent the movies solo all the time. I don't see the point of going with someone if you're sitting there in silence for 2 hours.
