This blog may contain some spoilers for Logan Lucky and American made. You have been warned.
It’s been an eventful week since returning from Italy.
I got to see my boys in their new movies, Logan Lucky and American Made.
Logan Lucky had me chuckling all the way through.
Adam Driver delivers one of the funniest lines I’ve heard in a movie for a long while.
As things go a little haywire with a vacuum machine that’s sucking money out of a vault, Daniel Craig’s character, Joe Bang, gets a little over zealous and accidentally points the machine at Adam Driver’s one armed character, Clyde Logan. The inevitable happens and Adam Driver dead pans a look at Craig Daniels and simple says, with a deep Southern accent, “you sucked ma arm off!!”.
Writing it down doesn’t do the scene any justice. It was hilarious.
Adam Driver has a pouty, miserable look on his face for the entire movie. He’s adorable.
American made was just unbelievable!!
That fact it’s based on a true story makes it all the more unbelievable.
Domhnall’s character, Monty Schafer, is a bit of a sleezeball and just in it for himself. The fact he ends up with a juicy promotion astounded me.
On Sunday evening I went to see Murron singing her first official gig at Esquires in town. She was amazing, although she’ll never admit it herself.
After Esquires, I stayed in town with Murron for a while and we went to The Barley Mow as they were having a strip night!
In hindsight, a bit of a mistake as I got thrown in front of a bus by Murron and her mates.
As the stripper started his show, I felt I was safe stood at the front of the crowd as this is a gay bar and the stripper was interacting quite nicely with the men. Unfortuantely he decided to end the show with me! who had been gently pushed in his direction by Murron and her mates. Thanks guys.
Not that I didn’t enjoy the experience, underneath that flag with a very impressive specimen flapping around in my face as I rubbed moisturiser into his abs.
Not ahamed to enjoy myself at any opportunity!!
Anyway, it was back to work for 07:30 on the Monday morning. My first full shift for around 3 weeks. It was a bank holiday Monday so not too stressful.
Tuesday was a late start at Uni for a speaker who came in to talk to us about reflection.
She was hilarious!
It was then an early finish to allow us to continue with home study for our next essay.
This allowed me to take Dharma into the hospital for an official photo of the start of work on the new play area that she’d helped to raise money for.
We honestly didn’t expect to reach our target for another year or two and here we are, just 6 months down the line and we will have a brand new play area by October.
I’ve spent the last couple of days, toying with my reflective essay and doing chores around the house. I’ve also eaten like a pig and drank like a fish!!
My new favourite drink is a LARGE wine glass, half filled with ice, a good shot (or two) of Limoncello and then filled to the brim with Prosecco!! Very refreshing and very moreish! It doesn’t last long.
Unfortuantely, all my Limoncello is now gone. The last memories of Italy are finally gone.
Come tomorrow morning, I seriously need to get back on track with the diet and exercise. I’m feeling bloated and horrible.
I have to think about the holiday me and Ian are planning for 2019!
Our big year.
End of Foundation Degree, 25 years of marriage and my 50th birthday.
We have decided to do a grown up holiday instead of the Orlando theme park experience we had initially talked about.
We know we want to do a tour of Italy but to what extent depends on a few things over the next year.
One of the things we have looked at is a 21 day train tour! Taking in Venice, Florence, Rome, Naples and lots in between.
Once you take out the expence of flights, there’s a lot more you can do!
Watch this space.
So that’s it.!
Back to normal life for the next two years.
Domhnall has two movies due out at the end of September and they couldn’t be any more different.
Crash Pad which takes Domhnall back to his comedic roots with ‘Immaturity for Charity’
Followed by Goodbye Christopher Robin which I’m seriously hoping will pick up an Oscar or two in the new year!
Then of course I get to see both Adam and Domhnall in The Last Jedi in December!
I literally can’t wait. It’s been almost 2 years since The Force Awakens and Kylo Ren and General Hux entered my life and turned it upside down.
I can’t wait to see how things develop for them in The Last Jedi although I’m really scared that General Hux will literally be going down in flames with his ship!
I may just cry.
