That’s what I call a party!

So yeah, Sunday was Max’s party Extrrrrrrrrravaganza!

The day started with me worrying if I was ever going to get there with my father waking up at 11:45am… I left, it was snowy… I arrived… I talked a bit with Lauren, Max and his sister who were there… it mostly consisted of talking about how Max has managed to embarrass himself… Sooner than later we left.

The trip there…. was a bit weird… not many people were talking so Max’s dad said, “So Chris, do you know why the ______ murderer killed his wife?” To be honest, I was expecting it to be a start of a joke…. it was not… I had no idea…. and for some reason I’m the one in the car that was meant to know about murderers… We sooner or later got to Ipswich… much to the frowny faces of Eliza, Chloé and Ben. Lauren was struggling to keep her balance.

There was a big hoopla about which Film we were going to see. Ben protested about seeing New Moon… I was decidedly silent. Because we were late, the screen was STILL quite full. So we ended up with the 3 boys in a row and the girls behind.

I didn’t really mind the film. The main thing I don’t like about the whole Twilight thing is the whole fangirlerism that goes with it. For example. The line, “Here’s Cullen…” was said quite early on… then it cuts to him walking in slow motion towards them his shirt billowing open… thought that was a bit silly…. The funny thing was at the end when he said that thing, a girl off to one side sort of swooned or girly “aww”‘d at it and everyone laughed.

The evil guy is DELICIOUSLY evil…. the slow motion was too heavy for its own good. Some bits added a nice bit of effect. Like when Cullen was thrown across the room then the guy was under him in slow motion grabbing him and slamming him into the stairs.

After the film the girls, and Ben, did the thing most females do and went to the toilet, leaving their infinite amount of bags with the boys with bladders of steel. Then we left the cinema….

We had 30 minutes to burn so we thought we’d pop into Costa or Starbucks. It being Sunday meant it had the early closing times… So Eliza suggested we walked back to the cinema by going pretty much the LONGEST ROUTE EVER! I basically viewed this as a walking self harm trip and froze enough that it felt like my hand may have to be removed. Basically… left arm had no feeling up to the elbow… both legs up to the knees…. yeah, that was fun.

We then got pizza…. painfully long discussion about that….

Then at Max’s house we painfully set the TV up to the projector (Lauren fixed it, unlike Ben…) and whilst that was happening I got an Xmas card from Chloé. We then watched The Hangover. We managed to cram, Eliza, Lauren, Chloé and I onto one sofa… a bit of a squeeze… Ben and Max on the other. The Hangover is pretty funny. The credits are a bit…. yeah…. it was funny cause there was a quick, “SHIT! Where’s the remote?!” As they were rolling and we saw Max’s family slowly approach and the image that was up was less than acceptable.

We ate cake. Then talked for the rest of the 45 odd minutes (I think). Ben left after just 15 of those minutes and he had given me his xmas gift pour moi. Being the C&H book “I’m giving you the finger” (Mum doesn’t approve of the content in there). Chloé gave me her present for me, which was a bit of a shock. I got “Hot Shots!” 1&2 in a box, which I have only just managed to free from the plastic wrapping.

After more talking I soon left, as I was leaving Chloé basically went, “Don’t forget your jacket, or Ben’s present, or my card, or my present.” and Max walked me out. Then before I left Max dashed up his room and brought down a present for me, which I’ve now fully eaten. I did feel a bit bad cause I went away with more than I arrived with.

I think that is the better group photo… looking at that photo… it looks like I have a really chiselled jaw…. but yeah…. as well as how god awfully skinny I am… that shirt can go in more…. and a GIANT Adam’s Apple…. and that I really need to start standing up straight….

Yesterday (if I can finish this blog in 55 minutes) I went into Town with Simon and Adam. Because my sister had something going on I got dropped off at Wickham Market station at 9:10 for the 9:55 train. The entire station floor was ice…. that sucked…. I listened to the FF7 soundtrack to accompany my feelings and read the C&H book. Eventually the train got here, I bumped into Ned on the train and we went to go find Simon and brought him back to the back of the train. Simon gave me a card that had £5 in… I didn’t have to pay any train fair cause she didn’t come and the gates were broken so they were perm open.

Adam was in 5 mins after we were and we walked a fairly long way into town. We went to Topshop so Simon could get some presents for people then into Boots where Simon bought bath stuff for girls then we played the “Search the shop for Tampons” game… whilst searching Adam and I found the condom and “Duplex Vibrations” section… which was opposite to the tissues…. a bit weird… I was thinking that we would be looking a bit odd to all the old ladies walking past….

We then went to Thorntons because I needed a present for my mum, which I think I’ve lost in my room somewhere… I think we basically ate… well, we went to Waterstones…. but yeah. We ate at Subway then got cheap drinks at Poundland.

We hopped off to the cinema…. and decided to watch Avatar in the poorly heated Screen 6.

Avatar…. I must say… was pretty awesome. We saw it in 3D. The story was pretty decent. It did have those moments where it was, “Why’d they show that earlier if it wouldn’t turn up later?”. The CGI…. HOLY CRAP! The CGI was amazing! too often I’d forget it was CGI. For ages I actually thought the blue people were real people… that the fire was real fire, the forests were real fire…. the plane/chopper/hornet things from Halo were real…. The hair… HOLY SHIT! The entire CGI about it was FUCKING insane!

After the 2.5 hour film and .5 hour adverts… the film ended. Adam had to leave for his train and so I was left to find Simon. He had left after like 30 mins of the actual film because he promised her he’d meet up with her to give her xmas present and stuff…. so yeah, I phoned him and he was in Costa… so I sped walked across the ice darting in between groups of people with my scarf around my face… I burst into Costa and then sat with Lauren waiting for Simon…

Things were a bit awkward but we talked about stuff…. mostly the day before. Simon popped down and Lauren had to leave… she wasn’t sure if she had gotten 7 or 9 bags on that day…. because she only had 8…. so then Simon and I were on a two person table together….

Through the entire Cinema bit of when Simon had left and it was just Adam and I, as well as the Costa bit with just Simon and I… all I could think was this.

So yeah, we went to the station and bumped into Josh Otter. He had gone to Cambridge for something and had been at the station a lot of the day. So we got on (1337) the train and found a spot to sit at… Simon was stuck next to some Asian woman… Josh flicked through the C&H book for a bit. The ticket lady came by, Simon paid for a ticket… Josh showed her his ticket…. JUST as we got to his stop. This meant she had to go and deal with the train… BANG didn’t have to pay! Simon and I moved to some chairs next to each other and then talked.

Got to my stop at Wickham then walked past Ned ‘n’ that lot and got a “Merry Christmas” from all of them. Then the day was done.

Today, I did sweet F A. I signed for a package for the first time in my life and it turns out for the small pad things I’m gonna need a smaller signature… cause I got ChrisSmed and then it sort of smudged into one. But yeah, Ben’s present has finally arrived… meaning I’m gonna have to give it to him WELL late, probs at the physics thing…. if he goes…

A side note, as I was writing this for well over two hours now… I went to get a drink…. I was SO happy to see my mum had thought, “Well, I didn’t get any apple juice last time, which Chris likes, and there was already a half full orange juice in there, which Chris doesn’t like greatly… So I’ll get another two Orange Juices…” Yeah…. That’s great… we now have 2.5 cartons of Orange Juice in the fridge….

I guess the next blog wont be until either xmas or Boxing day. See ya then!

    Oh, one note thingy… about Avatar…. the reason for the humans being there…. being mining for some element… The name could’ve been better, “Unobtainium”…. so yeah, they couldn’t obtain it… so it was unobtainable… they really did some heavy thinking on that one.
    Oh, I also saw Ash whilst we were in Ipswich… although he wont read this… but still…. or remember…
