Being Sick Sucks

Sorry I haven't been around lately.  Unfortunately I've had a really horrible stomach bug, which has taken away my will to move or do anything really.  But I'm finally starting to feel much better, and hopefully tomorrow I'll be back on my feet completely, because if I am I'm going to see X-Men First Class.  Yay!  I can't wait.  I love comic books and I love comic book movies.  Even when they're terrible.  I've been told it's amazing though by some of my fellow comic geeks, so I'm really excited.

Afterwards I'm going to go and get my tattoo coloured in again.  I got my third tattoo on my birthday, I'd been saving up for it.  I had it placed in my elbow crease and it wouldn't heal right so the colours haven't settled properly.  So the guys at Design 4 Life (my favourite place to get tattooed and pierced) told me to pop back in and they'd fill it in again.  For free.  So I'm really looking forward to that too.

This is a picture from the first day, the little red heart needs refilling now sadly.  I got the lily for my mum, and the pink hearts for my sister and the red heart for my dad.  They've all helped me through a rough time the past couple of years and it's my way to remember all they've done for me.

So while I've been stuck in, Danny has been trying his hardest to keep my spirits up.  I'm really lucky to have such a caring boyfriend.  So that meant a lot of film watching, quite a few good films and unfortunately some bad films.  My favourite of the week has been a Korean fantasy film called Woochi, it was amazing.  I recommend it to anyone who loves fantasy films, it felt like what Sorcerer's Apprentice should have been.  Just an amazing piece of cinema and some brilliant comedy performances.  I can't wait to watch it again.

I can't say the same for Suckerpunch.  This was the film I was really looking forward too the most as well.  I just didn't like it.  I haven't read the graphic novel, I still intend to though, maybe the film just didn't do it justice.  The film had so much potential, unfortunately some of the actors just didn't sit right with me and I found it just to damn predictable for a film that was obviously trying so hard to have a twist.  I loved the fantasy fight sequences though.  The fighting was beautifully executed and reminded me of the fight sequences often found in animes.  In fact I think the film might have been better as an anime.

In between the endless hours of film watching I decided to dye my wonderful green hair blue.  I don't like it as much as my green and it was rushed so it's not as blue as I would have liked it to turn out, but I spent a while pretending I was Nightcrawler and bamfed around the room till I could bamf no more.

What do you think is better?  Tongue pulling blue or fringe attacking green?

Then I took a bath with my awesome new floaty duck, Syd.  He's yellow, he's cool and he loves to bop around in the water while listening to music.  He seems to really like Halestorm.  I keep thinking I should make a playlist for when I get a bath.  Has anyone else actually got one for their bath time?  What do you like to listen to?

Well I'm off to paint my nails, neon green and midnight blue.  Speak to you all soon.
