Do you ever feel like just giving up? Like lying there and letting the world wash over you?

I have no idea where this apathy for life in general has sprung from, I woke up with it today, and I'll no doubt pull myself together and push it to the back of wherever at some stage. That's just what I do.

But right at this very moment, I'm finding it very difficult to fake an interest in this mundane, grey, loveless existance..

Ignore's just a downer, I'll get over it.

New me! earlier's panic is over, thanks be to Google! I fixed it, and now, in my opinion anyway, my blog is much much prettier!

I've also changed the name. When I started this blog, I initially intended for it to be an outlet from work, and to post about all the oh so hilarious things that happened to me there. But nothing funny happened...or at least not enough to fill a blog.

So now it's just girl is gone, long live the daily daydreamer! (apt, no?)

For anyone who has me in their blogroll, please change the name (and the link...) to the new, updated blog! Thanks! :)

I broke my blog!!

Arrgh!! I'm so frustrated right now!!

I was playing around with my blog, trying out new layouts (from other sites...)
and NOW, my 'Layout' tab is gone, and it's a 'Template' tab instead, and I don't know how to get it back to the way it was and I'm stuck with this dotty..yoke of a layout that I don't want!!

This could be my new favourite song..

Loving it!

Fail? I'm not so sure...

Seems like a brilliant idea to

Friday the 13th (the film, not the day...)

So, me and a friend decided to go to the cinema tonight. Being fluffy girly film type girls (see previous film review for proof..), we had our hearts set on Confessions of A Shopaholic. I've read the books, liked them, so was optimistic.

After a brief stop in Tesco, for yummy liquid treats (Yop anyone?) and a mango, we headed off...power walking to Cineworld.

In the queue, giggling and chattering, I saw something. Something awful. Confessions etc etc was sold out!! We decided to try our luck anyway, and it turned out there was seat left. I asked the guy if I could just sit on my friend's knee...and he laughed at me. I don't think he realised that I was serious....

So we decided to see Friday 13th...yeah, we're both big wimps, afraid of our own shadows but a film is a with trepidation we headed in, found our seats (at the back, by the wall, in front of the stairs so we could make a hasty escape should a crazed Jason leap out of the screen at us), Yops to hand, and jackets to cover our eyes with. Yep, we were all set.

In case you haven't noticed yet, I'm rambling to hide the fact that there is actually no review here...

I would love to be able to give you a review for this, I really would. But...I can't. Because even when I wasn't cowering in fear behind my coat, I was too terror stricken by what I was seeing to even focus enough on anything to put in a review. I was screaming at one of the ads before the actual film started...

I left the cinema pale, shaking, and not in the least bit impressed with the prospect of the walk home from town (walking off the Yop y'see..) and I also left with one question burning in my mind: Why won't Jason fuck off and die already?!

Enjoy the film!

I just got poked!

Well...a bit more than poked actually...I got a bit of metal rammed through my tongue! Yes folks...I FINALLY worked up the courage to get my tongue pierced, and I'm all happy now...

I'd take a picture but it's all swollen and icky at the moment...I can't eat for 3 weeks, same goes for alcohol, and tea!! and I can't speak properly, but it's so worth it!!

Having children when you're younger is becoming increasingly popular. So many people in their late teens and early twenties are popping 'em out left right and centre (if the amount of squalling brats running around my job are anything to go by anyway...) I see it everyday in work, people my own age, a few years older, and scarily, a few years younger with one and two children trailing behind them. But it's not shocking anymore, it's the norm.

But where do we draw the line? How young really is too young? Sixteen? Fifteen? How about thirteen?

Because that's the age of one of England's newest fathers, Alfie Patten. His fifteen year old girlfriend gave birth to their daughter Maisie four days ago. Let that sink in.

Now...he was twelve when this child was conceived. She was fourteen. What are children this age doing even thinking about sex, let alone having it, and in the process, spawning a child??? Shouldn't he be too interested in his Playstation, or Xbox or whatever it is twelve year olds are interested in?

He claims to want to be a good father, and I quote: "I didn't know what it would be like to be a dad. I will be good, though, and care for it." but he also doesn't really know how to afford it, saying, and I think this is the most telling of all : "I don't really get pocket money. My dad sometimes gives me £10,"

I think it's safe to say that this child will be raised by the grandparents, who, sadly, are still trying to raise her parents at the same time. Not very successfully if this is anything to go by...

He's just not that into you..

Ok, so here it is:

Warning: MAJOR chick-flick alert! He's just not that into you (based on the book of the same name, by Greg Behrendt of Oprah fame..) is a laugh out loud rom-com, with all the happy ending, feel-good gooeyness that a good chick flick needs.

It follows the stories of the desperate for love GiGi (Ginnifer Goodwin - Walk the Line), happily unmarried Neil (Ben Affleck), and his not so happily unmarried partner Beth (Jennifer Aniston), internet romantic Mary (Drew Barrymore), the would-be cheat Ben (Bradley Cooper - Yes Man) and his neurotic wife Janine (Jennifer Connolly), temptress Anna (Scarlett Johansson), and the man hopelessly in lust with her, Connor (Kevin Connolly)
Still with me? Good...
Throw Alex (Justin Long) in as the straight talking voice of logic, and you got...well, not movie magic, but a lot of big names and a decent film!

It has a lot of what you'd expect, the usual girly film way of making men out to be the spawn of satan, with all their male ways (boo hiss and the like...) but this is kinda equalised by Anna (Johannson), the brazen hussy one, and I found her to be very unlikeable as a character (but whether or not this is just a general dislike of Johansson in general, I don't know..)

Justin Long, as Alex, is the one to watch, playing the role of sarcastic (but caring!) love cynic to perfection, of course, delivering the line we all love to hate: 'he's just NOT that into you!!' (I think I fell a little bit in love with him by the end though...)

Ginnifer Goodwin is also fantastic, playing the hopeless romantic, just looking for love. I think we've all been her at one stage or another, which makes her so likeable. I couldn't help but cringe as she made excuses for her disastrous dates ('maybe he lost my number' or 'he's sick'...sound familiar??) and left the babbling message on the voicemail...she's genuinly endearing, and a great character.

All of the other performances are delivered well, as you would expect from such names (apart from possibly Barrymore's, it seemed a bit underplayed, and IMO there wasn't much need for her character at all..)

And of course, as I said before, you get the Hollywood happy ending that we all so secretly love, So hey...go see it. Even if it is just a chance for director Ken Kwapis to drop some heavy's 2 hours of fluff that'll keep you entertained and put a smile on your face. I give it six and a half out of ten...

So! There it overdue and first ever review. And now you see why I don't write them!

P.S. - Interested to see what any guys think of this movie...if they can be dragged into it, of course!

Thirsty, anyone?

This ad just freaks me out...even more so than the cadbury kids with the eyebrows (why??)
