We went to see "Four Christmases" last Thursday. I was very excited about it because the trailer was funny. However, I thought the movie turned out to be a disappointment. George said that the movie sucked and Sheena said it was an average movie. Some scenes and jokes were funny but most of it was a cliche and a repeat of a lot of ideas from previous movies. All in all it was OK, the sort of movie you would watch at home when you are kinda bored but not the sort you would bother going to a cinema to see.
Also, on Friday Sheena and I went shopping in City Center (i.e. downtown :P). It was very lovely because the streets were decorated for Christmas. Sellers had put up their stands everywhere offering all different types of Christmas goodies and food. There were also some games for children like the merry-go-round. We walked a bit, enjoyed the smell of fresh bread and the sight of chocolate and sweets. Then we went to get shakes at a specialty shop named Shakeaway - simply because they only sell shakes. The shop was impressive, you can put anything you want in your shake ... chocolate muffins, marltesers, kinder, nutella, sneakers, Oreo ... you name it they have it and are willing to put it in your shake. Sheena bought me the shake as a treat. She recommended chocolate muffin with marltesers topping and so I had it and and it was good. I know that I will be going there more and trying all sorts of mixtures.
Then we went to shop in ASDA. It took us more than usual because Sheena was shopping for Christmas Eve Dinner. We finally headed home and I was so tired by the time we got there.
I can't believe it is Monday already. One week down and two more to go and then it's back to uni :( I want and need more days just to finish all the coursework I have to do (OK, I know I haven't been as productive as I wanted to be but give me a break I am bored and tired of studying and I really needed the day off yesterday - so don't make me feel guilty about it :P)
