Wow. If you hadn't seen it seriously do not click on the LJ Cut. This is a film that really needs to be seen unspoiled, and here be spoilers galore! Seriously, don't even take a peek.

Spoiler alert! )

I got up far too early this morning. I went to bed around three and got up about half eight. Which meant I spent the whole day exhausted and lounging around on the settee watching various episodes of Star Trek on Sky 1. My lounging was interrupted briefly when I took the dog for a walk, but it was a very short walk because it started raining, so we went home and lounged around some more. I don't think Milly minded, she seemed more exhausted than me. I blame the weather actually, being all rainy and depressing. And just after my sister went and jetted off to Greece for her excessively long five week holiday. It just adds insult to injury that she got to enjoy all the good weather here and it disappears as soon as she goes. Ah well, I'm not that jealous, I don't think I'd want to go on holiday on my own. I'm too much of a wimp.

I managed to pull myself out of my lethargy with the help of loads of Pro Plus and drag myself to work. Where I found out I'd won a prize! I got £10 of Odeon vouchers, third prize in the doing what you're supposed to competition (so nicknamed, by me at least, because a reminder about it last week included the words "so don't forget to come to work") It was all about being there, being on time, call control and saying the right things on calls. So yay. Was a bit of an ego boost, anyway.

I'm still exhausted though, and I'm not working until 6pm tomorrow, so I think I'm going to go to bed nice and early (for me) and not bother setting my alarm clock.

Last night, I slept nearly 11 hours. I went to bed at 1 and got up at quarter to 12. Ooops. I so didn't mean to do that. I'd set alarms and everything. Good job I didn't have to be anywhere! Had the weirdest dream too, everyone I knew died...(but I won't go into that)

Then I spent the whole day reading fanfic. Enterprise fanfic. I've never read any before. I was never that into the series, but this new season is good. I mean, it's actually recognisable as Star Trek. I'm watching it because I really like it. I mean I thought the other seasons were okay, but at the same time I just never loved it like I do the other Star Treks. I mean, I never even had a favourite character. And I always have a favourite character. Too bad it got cancelled. Just when it got good. Typical really.

Also (unrelated to Enterprise) 3 weeks after it appeared, my incredibly embarrassing crush doesn't look like it's going to go away!

Treed Murray is a good film! It's really not the kind of film I would normally go for. I usually wouldn't have even rented it, let alone bought it. Then again, I rarely buy things without having seen them first. The only other time I ever did was Nothing, which I'm very glad I did. I'm also seriously considering buying the DVD box set of Traders series 1, but maybe that would be a stupid idea. Obsessions have a bad effect on my bank account, and although I rarely regret buying things, I do get a lot of grief from my family because of it.
Today for example, my sister comes into the room and goes "You *bought* that Get Down film?!"
"Yes," I say.
"Well, why?!"
I sigh and roll my eyes. Because I can't help it. Because when an obsession takes over, I am no longer in control of my actions. Because I am weird. I look her in the eye, something I really don't like doing, but I know it can make a statement more effective, "Because I wanted to."
She left it at that. But she sid make a weird snorting noise, which I know from experience means she's now going to tell everyone about it. And this was only a DVD I bought in a shop. I think they think it's worse when I start ordering stuff from Canada. Hmm, okay, maybe I should take that as a sign that I totally *should* do it. After all, why should I let a bunch of NTs dictate to me what I should do. I don't mock Jennie for buying so many clothes and shoes, or my mum for the same. If I was spending half as much on clothes as they do, my mum would probably be thrilled! Well, I'm not, so the way I see it, I should be able to buy other things. Things that bring me enjoyment. Probably more enjoyment than their wardrobes bring them, anyway.

Anyway, I find myself with a sudden, inexplicable and very urgent need to watch Star Trek TOS. So I'm going to fish out my videos and watch a few eps. I wonder how my mum would react if I bought the Star Trek DVDs? I wonder why I care. I'm 23, for smeg’s sake. I should be able to do what I want...

There are so many DVDs I want though, Star Trek, Forever Knight (okay, already ordered them), Traders, Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis (definitely getting them), Due South, The Invisible Man... I worked out the other night that if I bought all the DVDs I wanted, it'd cost me nearly £500! And that's using the cheapest prices I could find. So, just for the record, I won't be doing *that* any time soon!

31 hours to Hot Zone...
