Caught Fire and Where’s Hugo Update?

Last night I went to the cinema to see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and I loved it! It pretty much plays out the book as follows, but overall I was really impressed. I’ve only just read the book actually cause it seems I but these books and only manage to read them just before the films come out, but that’s a good thing cause I had the story in my head. There were a few if I were being picky bits missing and personally for me, there was not enough of the lovely Finnick Odair (I know he comes across as a bit of a pervert at first, but theres more going on with him than either Gale or Peeta!). As male characters go, he’s a much more stronger character than Gale or Peeta. As Gale is being fronted as a main character, he doesn’t do bugger all for the first 2 books and I always find Peeta a little too wet behind the ears! I think they cut some bits out of the movie because I’ve seen the stills and some bit weren’t in it! I could have done without the dripping water too as I need the toilet halfway through (I went before hand – trust me!) and this DID NOT HELP!!

The most highlighting bit of the night actually didn’t happen in the movie. There were these people who got moved to the front before the movie started, I’m not sure why and thanks to them, I was so busy being annoyed at them talking, I missed the Katniss and Gale kiss!!! But they kept getting up and going out and by halfway through, they left and shouted goodbye to everyone (like we knew them!). One person summed up every ones feelings perfectly by telling them politely to eff off and got a big round of applause.

And now to the second part of this post, Hugo watch!!! He’s been found and is bringing two of my favourite things together by being on the Christmas Celebrity Come Dine With Me!!! They must have known I was talking about him! I watched the first Made In Chelsea special of Come Dine With Me and I can’t remember if he was on it, I don’t think he was, but that was a good one. Please keep me up to date with anymore on the Hugo Watch hotline!!

And finally, need I say more but 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who tonight!!! More post show tomorrow!


Film Of The Day: Catching Fire
Nails Of The Day: I have a Hunger Games based do with a black polish base then flicks of as many orange and red based shades as I could find, to make my nails look on fire!! Wish they were, my hands are freezing!

Ahh Hugo!

Good evening everyone! I have suitably calmed down since my last posting and am in less of a craze (till Thursday – ahh a wee clue for you there).

This week has seen the return of I’m A Celebrity (term used loosely!) and I wasn’t planning on watching it this year, because the line up just didn’t seem as good as last year. Last years was the first one I had watched in a good 4-5 years, because the line up was good, but this years, no one really interested me – so far anyway. Plus, there is literally feck all else on the TV this week (except for Saturday OMG!). But all of this has actually nothing to do with this years IAC, but more to do with last years and the wonder that was…. Hugo!

It’s safe to say, last year, I developed a bit of a… thing for Hugo and the return of IAC this year has made me remember all about it. I haven’t seen him since (on the tv I mean, not physically in real life – they wouldn’t let me in Chelsea, I’m too common – FACT). Where is he? Where did he go? and more importantly, When the hell is he coming back? If anyone knows the answers to any of said question then leave said answers in the old comments!



Video Of The Day: The Sesame Street Hunger Games parody – Finnick’s a right idiot in it! Check my twitter for a link!
Nails Of The Day: None, but I have a Hunger Games themed look rolling around in the old brain!

It’s a special day!

Apparently their is something special about today, not quite sure what lol!

I am now partially cold free and back to work, which is good! I have never been off work this long, and it seems weird to say I only had a cold, but I did but literally I couldn’t breathe so you know, that kind of stumped me. Luckily, I had my New Girl boxset, I watched the entire thing in 3 days, well, you have to check if it works!

I finally got round to watching Hugo (not of the Made In Chelsea, I’m A Celebrity fame!) at the weekend and I really enjoyed it. It took a while to get started, but I found it really magical, I’m glad I bought it. It did throw one thing up for me. Until I watched this film, I thought his name was Hugo Cabaret, like the musical, but it’s pronounced more like cabray. And it just made me think, the amount of times I misread things and not realise for ages, is astonishing. Until someone said it to me, I always thought the book/tv show was called Game Of Thornes, when it’s Thrones! I mean, even I know Thrones sounds more true to the story than Thornes, why would anyone fight over thornes! I do it when I’m reading too, I literally skip a paragraph and not even notice sometimes, than later on I’ll be like, “when did that happen in the story!”.

Anyway, that’s about it for now! Nothing more interesting to comment on.


Thoughts Of The Day: Cold!
Nail Varnish Of The Day: Nothing at the mo, I’m waiting till a works event on Friday.

Let’s Rename This Sofa

Well hello chums!, while this is a Miranda excited start to this post, be warned, it’s a lie, as the rest of this post will be bloody miserable.

I am typing from the sofa, aka the sickbed! as I am full of a Christmas Cold. Even adding the word Christmas before cold couldn’t make it any less of a cold. So today, I am having my first day off work all year!

So, to keep myself from going insane and delirious from cold, I in all my wisdom, decided that the best thing to do would be to finally sit down and watch Made In Chelsea! I have so far watch the first 4 episodes of Season 1 on 4OD on Youtube (BTW, does anyone have loading issues with it, I had to keep refreshing it!). I literally had to stop myself from watching more episodes, I thought 4 was rather enough in my current circumstances. I shall probably watch 4 more tomorrow lol! What’s worse, just thinking about it, I think I could actually name everyone already too! How sad is that! Bet you can guess who my favourite is – just see the posts below.

As for the rest of my weekend, it has been spent pretty much watching films and the last of I’m A Celebrity. If you didn’t guess the Christmas film that I watched this weekend, it was Elf. I think it is one of the best newer Christmas films that has come out. Then I watched Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadow, which I really enjoyed (strange how it follows the same stories as the tv show???) and then today, after I prized myself away from Made In Chelsea, I watched The Vow, which is a film I wanted to see when it with in the cinema, but it was basically only on for a week here, so I missed it.

I did put up the old Christmas tree this weekend. I am slightly concerned though that the damn thing is going to fall over, cause all I have to do is prod it a little and the thing wobbles like Pisa. Here is a rather fetching picture:

So that’s how it’s been going down!


Thought Of The Day: 4 episodes of Made In Chelsea in one go is more than enough for any normal human being!
Nail Varnish Of The Day: None can’t be bothered!

Still depressed

But this has got to be some kind of record blog posting wise! 4 in 4 days (or 4 in 5 if I can’t count, which with a maths degree, I should!).

I am still depressed that Hugo has left the jungle lol! I did get a wee little reprieve yesterday, because he was featured in the show slightly, but I now bound to reading interviews with him in The Sun.

What I am more depressed, strike that concerned about, is the fact that people seem to think that I am someone they should tell all their secrets too! I have had a few good en’s told to me in the past few weeks.

I didn’t realise that I was someone who people felt that they could confide to but hey ho. It wouldn’t be so bad if they told me the secret and that was that. Nope, the fact is I have the secrets and I obviously can’t tell anyone, but you have to walk around knowing that other people don’t know these secrets and you do and you can’t tell them and, God, I wish people wouldn’t tell me secrets. I am pretty much a Sheldon Cooper when it comes to the art of Secret Keeping!

I haven’t told anyone obviously and it’s not as if there all bad secrets, ones quite exciting, but I am going to have to rely on my good old memory to forget them – I have enough of my own!

That got you excited!

So to make room for all these secrets, I’ll offload one of mine:

I have a secret ambition to go and work for the Australian Border Control services, after watching to much Border Control on Pick TV.

Not the juiciest of secrets, were you expecting more, lol! That should allow for a bit more secret space in my brain!

This weekend is very exciting as my decorations are going up for Christmas. Quite frankly, if it weren’t weird, I’d keep the buggers up all year round. They should really invent a holiday for each month. I shall post pics tomorrow!


Song Of The Day: Not had one of these in a while. I can’t get Taylor Swift’s “All To Well” out of my head, such a beautiful storytelling song!
Nail Varnish Of The Day: None at the mo and I am currently with stumps, after cutting off all my nails!
