When I read Cockie‘s post this morning (she left something nice (chocolate frogs and mice) for the builders who are working on her house) I suddenly remembered that I had to post this picture.
It is nice to do something nice and unexpected for people. When I was in New York, I had loads of cents left (because of their weird pricing system), and I liked to leave some money for the cleaners of my hotel room. So in stead of throwing the coins out, I thought it nice to leave the coins for them (and a couple of paper dollars of course) like this. I hope it put a smile on their face.
Yesterday I saw Fred Claus. Now why would a Xmas cynic like me watch a Xmas film like that, you wonder. Well, there is one good reason: Kevin Spacey. He is in it, and it is too long since I have seen him on the big screen. He was kind of delicious in this film, with black rimmed specs (where have I seen those before) and even though he played the villain, it all ended well in the end. It’s not the best of Christmas films, but I admit it – I cried several times during this film. I am so pathetic.
I also went to see it because I find the choice of films in London at the moment not very inspiring. There are very very few movies that could be used as a mood buster, and that is really what I need in a month like December. Luckily better times are on their way with the upcoming The Golden Compass (Daniel Craig is on nearly every bus her in London – mmm – lovely) and also with Disney’s Enchanted. But honestly, where are all those feel-good rom-com’s that used to come out around Christmas time? Nearly all films currently running in the cinema seems to be about murders and killing people. Bad.
I need to write about 5 more scenes for my script before I send it off today. I have tried with music and Yorkshire tea but I know it is not going to work like that today. So I will print my whole script on paper and take it with me and find a place where I can sit and finish it.
You might get tired of this or think I am even more pathetic, but I can’t tell you how much I miss my Cafe. It’s horrible. I am sure that if I just went there those 5 scenes would be done in an hour or so. Now I don’t even know where to go to write them, and I am not sure they will come to me either. I find it so hard to find a place where you can sit in peace and where they don’t mind you sitting there for 2 hours if you have to. I truly miss it.
