Oh no!!

 My goodness it has been almost a week since I last made a post...what has happened?? I've been rather busy interposed with a bit of no posties for me!!
 Thursday past is the first Thursday night in many, many years I have not made my weekly pilgrimage to the flicks. I couldn't believe it, and struggled to remember how long it has been since that last happened. The problem being is both Rio and Paul were released on Thursday and yet I had seen both at their respective advance screenings. So here I sit not knowing if seeing them early was such a good idea or not because I got the shakes onThursday night at about 7.30p.m, which is my usual time of leaving home for my weekly session.
 For some reason Scream 4 isn't playing here in Napier but is over in Hastings. I'm not overly fused on seeing it, and am humming and arring over it. There are some interesting films over in Havelock North but the price of petrol has gone beserk, and it is getting a bit prohibitive to just nip across like a few months ago. With the ticket being about $15.00, and petrol on top, it can upwards of $25.00 plus to go to the flicks out of town.
 So there you have it. Not a very good week for this movie goer at all!! What is even worse is I haven't even read a single word of the three books I'm trying ( unsuccessfully ) to read simultaneously. Even posting in my other blog has gotten to the glacial stage! I can get by with missing a movie or two, but I can't live without books which are bigger passion than cinema, so when not reading, this Kiwi is not happy!
 But never fear, I will be back into it soon. I watched several DVD's several weeks ago and have a few draft copies in progress, so all is not lost yet, and I'll be back in action soon. So stayed tuned!!


  1. It happens to the best of us! I've gone a week without posting before. Life sometimes doesn't leave room for our hobbies.

  2. Hope you feel better soon and get back to the cinema asap!


  3. Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou!!

  4. No worries about the hiatus - it's giving me a chance to catch up on your last batch of reviews.

    I second Karina's comment, btw.

  5. Thanks just about there as far as wrting another review goes!

  6. Don't sweat it. It's great when you have a new post all the time, but no one's got a right to complain about free entertainment. Sometimes life just doesn't cooperate with the best blogging plans. Whenever you've got a new one I'll check it out!

  7. Thanks Brent!! Ditto to above comment! Am almost finished a new post so it will be up soon.
