Yesterday Tony & I managed a date together to go and see Avatar in 3D. We left it a bit late and had to sit right at the front, but this worked reasonably well.
This was my first "modern" 3D film and I was impressed. The plot is rather generic plot no. 4 but executed well, and very beautifully. The 3D was impressive without being too overused. And it had Sigourney Weaver, who always improves a movie for me. (Utter fail on the Bechdel test, sadly: 4 strong women characters, they hardly even talk to each other, let alone about something other than a man.)
The 3D was so impressive in fact, that I had mild seasickness for at least an hour after taking the glasses off at the end of the movie. Tony didn't, so it's probably Just Me.
Jonny met us with Charles afterward and we headed over to attend atreic
's ceilidh. Charles was a bit anti the loud music but was happy to watch the dancing from another room, and even do a bit of improvised dancing with me and Tony. However we left early because I was falling asleep on my feet, probably due to being up too late after the hustings the night before.
Charles had not napped and was up late, so I had a glorious lie-in until 8 this morning, but this was rapidly spoiled by a migraine. Bah. My to-do list for today had been:
1. Do powerwalking
2. Do weekly accounts catchup
3. Write article for NCT magazine
But instead I have achieved:
1. Use last of migraine medication
2. Go back to bed for several hours blessed quiet in a dimly-lit room
3. Eat Tony's wonderful cooking for late lunch/early dinner
4. Go to shop for fizzy caffeine
And I think I might return to bed again after giving the accounts a stab. I must find my repeat prescription and get it to the doctor tomorrow. Should have done that after I took the penultimate tablet for my last migraine, but that was probably in the depths of the post-viral fatigue before Christmas.
