The continuing yo-yo saga

As some of you are unfortunately all too aware I've been on somewhat of a rollercoaster of emotions so far this year. I've been really up, I've been really down - rarely so far have I managed to attain a happy medium. Nor can I unfortunately predict the way I'm feeling from one day to the next (or even one hour to the next in some cases).

I'm not going into the "Why's" here - or at least not now. To be honest I'm not entirely sure of all of the Why's anyway so it'd be kinda pointless - and very boring for most of you ;-p

Anyway, despite my post of Sunday afternoon I've generally had a pretty good weekend. My spell at the Dev and the Ballroom on Friday was good and I was really glad to catch up with a couple of friends (Rob and Clare) who were incredibly nice and understanding. I was actually completely taken aback by their kind words and insight and genuine feeling. I really hope I see so much more of both of them this year as they have always been great people and are also the kind of friends (and attitudes) I need around me right now. It was just a shame that a sudden dive into depression killed the evening short for me and I headed home about 2am.

Saturday afternoon I went to Camden and saw 'Lost in Translation'. I can not reccommend the film high enough. I loved it and it also solved my age-old problem of not having a movie actress that I fancy. Scarlett Johansson is absolutely gorgeous. The film might not be to everyones tastes (it won't appeal to the action-thriller crowd ;-p) but I sincerely hope it gets an Oscar or two.

I also popped into the Dev and ran into an old school friend I hadn't seen for years who is moving to New Zealand in a month or two and then also bumped into Jess (an old flatmate) who has also just joined the LJ community as of Sunday by the looks of things,

Saturday evening I spent with Bug. A nice Thai meal followed by too much alcohol. It was great to catch up with her again (as always). She does me a world of good and really calms me for which I'm eternally grateful. She is one of the few people currently in my life that I really don't think I'd be able to live without right now. Downside was that I didn't get home until 7am Sunday morning, got to sleep at 8am and was up and about again by 10am. I really should be sorting out some sleep right now.

Highlight of Sunday was seeing Alyson Hannigan (spelling?) who played Willow in Buffy the Vampire Slayer window shopping in Covent Garden (just near Neils Yard). She is ****soooooo**** cute in real life too - even better than on film. She also has the nicest of voices. One of my friends is currently working with her on the theatre production of When Harry Met Sally so (fingers-crossed) some freebie tickets will come my way..... Also met up with Daz and Beckie in Chandos for a few hours of chatting and drinking.
