Wow... I just finished watching The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I started watching this movie about three months ago and watched it in bits and pieces over the last few months. This is totally NOT the way to watch this film! I just had to go back and watch the beginning again. Such a good movie. Really different. Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet both played really different characters to their norm. I normally can't stand Jim Carrey but he was fantastic in this. And I love Kate Winslet. I can't really tell you anything about it without spoiling it, so just go and hire it!
What have I been up to today? Well this morning I spent an hour trying to get onto the Ticketek website to get tickets to the Chili Peppers concert. I was hitting refresh every 10 seconds for over an hour! I finally got on and the tickets were all sold. Sigh... Well at least we've seen them before. This afternoon I took Tassy to the mint to make a coin. It's not as exciting as it sounds... you put $2.50 in a machine, press a button, the machine does a very loud KA-CHUNK and out pops a brand new $1 coin. Anyway, on the way there Tassy fell asleep in the car! She NEVER sleeps during the day. But I was happy for her to have a nap cos she was up really early and has had a cold this week. So I pulled into some village shops and ran into a newsagents and bought a magazine and a yummy chocolate tart from the pattisserie next door. Then I drove to the Mint and sat in the car for 1 1/4 hours till she woke up. btw the chocolate tart was really yummy and I'll be going back to that pattisserie! While I waited in the car I kept expecting a security guard to knock on my window, to ask why I was suspiciously waiting in the carpark for so long! Tassy finally woke up and we raced inside to make a coin and have a really quick look at the places where the circulated coins and proof sets and medals are made. Then we had to pick up Dave from work. Anyway it was a fun afternoon. And the chocolate tart was yummy :)
