I have been so tired this week. Not only am I sick, but I've been an idiot and going out afterwork, either shopping or hanging out with friends and not helping my cold one bit. Did I mention I'm tired?

Anyway, I just wanted to hope in and post because I haven't been here in a while and probably won't be back until this weekend.

A co-worker won free tickets to go see Blood Diamond and she invited me along last night. It started at 7:30 and two and a half hours later we were outta there. The movie opens Friday, so I'm pretty giddy we saw it first. Hee.

I liked the movie, though there are mixed reviews already and I can definetly see their points. I think the movie misses some chances to really deliver the message it's trying so hard to send, about political strife and war and murders in Africa over diamond mining. The movie instead focuses a lot on being commercial, with a love subplot that actually went no where, brutal depictions of innocent killings, jarring and sudden shootouts and chase/running scenes and all the cliche's you can pack in a bag.

Muddled along in the movie are a lot of things I liked, but I can see where critics would have issues. Oh well, I saw it for free.

I am on my way to bed now, I need the rest. I got up early today to go to Carson Pierre Scott to shop. After getting home after 11pm last night I left out before 7:30 this morning. You guys don't understand, I love my sleep.

Well, I'll peek at you guys later. Miss you!
