Needless to say, I was not happy and it made me very snappy and impatient with everyone in the house because it was an unforeseen annoyance, and everybody knows that they are the worst kinds of annoyances. On top of that, this was a rather inconvenient unforeseen annoyance as well, and I did not get to enjoy a cool glass of water to calm me down, I instead got a tepid glass of water and an hour on the phone trying desperately to get someone to come to Enfield to investigate my inconvenient annoyance. Well by 4.30pm in the afternoon the best I could muster up was a visit from a guy that said he 'might know what to do' (that doesn't really fill one with a lot of hope now does it?) and he could probs squeeze me in some time tomorrow, but he was not exactly sure when. Hmmmm......
Well, tomorrow is the worst day ever to be vague about times because I am working out at my new job and I cannot afford to not be there for that, so I have had to call in favours and juggle things around; and I tell ya, I am literally having a 'make it work' moment over here people! Anyway, I think that I have strategized the shit out of the situation and now I just have to hope that the service/repair man comes good and does indeed squeeze me in and can indeed fix my refrigerator blues.
These things sure are sent to test us, that's for sure! They always happen just before a big event (like Christmas) when you're funds are all tied up and they always require many maneuvers to remedy. Nevermind, be zen about it, find the calm and keep moving forward. This type of thing will happen and it won't be the last time that something like this does happen, so losing one's cool over it is not really worth it.
So now I am off to throw out a heap of gross, festering and smelly food that is puddling at the base of my fridge that I haven't been willing to face yet. Lucky, lucky me, what a lovely thing to do on a stinking hot afternoon....reckon the Coke in the fridge could still be salvaged, may need to pour myself a stiff one for this job, a lukewarm stiff one, but a stiff one nonetheless!
Release Date: 2017
Running Time: 118 mins
A heist comedy directed by Steven Soderbergh and based on a screenplay by newcomer Rebecca Blunt. Soderbergh came out of retirement to direct this film and it delivers with much of the same charm that the 'Ocean's' trilogy franchise had, only in my opinion, it's better in every way. No gloss, glamour or flashy lights to be found here, just good old roughneck families from the South with big hearts and brains when it matters.
Jimmy Logan (Channing Tatum), his one armed brother Clyde Logan (Adam Driver) and their sister Mellie Logan (Riley Keough) plan to rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina. With some help from demolition expert Joe Bang (Daniel Craig) and his two brothers this could be the heist of a lifetime.
This is really sweet and also very smart storytelling, the characters are funny without being exaggerated or offensive and the entire movie has a realness to it that cannot be denied. The acting here is just so great, Tatum and Driver are terrific together and Daniel Craig is the most enjoyable that he has been since Casino Royale.
FINAL SAY: Is it twenty or is it thirty? We are dealing with science here!
