Hmmm, Van Helsing

So, quite a pleasant night out last night with berrega and quondam. Edwards is still a funny old club mind and doesn't seem to actually know what it's playing from hour to hour...

It's also nice to have a visit from berrega, whose characteristic honesty and bluntness is guaranteed to wind me up a little bit. This time it was in a relatively amusing way. So, in order to cover the area we discussed a little note - "Feel free to discuss my love life, or even form judgements based on it, but make sure you have the full facts. Ithankyou.".

This morning, as preparation for a run (self-motivation in the way that "If I don't keep running I might find myself in a life scripted by the same writer") I went to see Van Helsing. There's little to say that hasn't been said before, but while it was by no means a good script, and suffered rubber-cgi like Spiderman, the best bits were the "Carpathian Tourist Board" shots and I'm not even going to mention the cod-accents - it was an ok distraction for a couple of hours.

I was, again, moaned at for laughing "at" the atrociousness of the film rather than at the gags, but I guess it's just the way I am.

Run was good. must do more. Not too much more, but some more.
