I don’t know if you have seen the movie Crash (2004/5, Don Cheadle, Sandra Bullock) if you haven’t it is well worth making the effort.

The feeling was not disimilar to what I felt after Hotel Rwanda. Less angry, still total frustration at the human race. It is very much based around racial discriminaton not just black vs. white Americans, and the plot is spectacularly woven together from multiple stories. Quite moving, disturbing in the same way that you feel powerless to do anything to stop the world walking its jaunty twisted way.

I was going to go to the young adults group thing tonight, that didn’t happen. I was at Jess’s, Ana was unsure if she was going, my head was choked after the movie, I am unsure whether to tag along at the end of the year or just wait until next year.

Choices. Funny how we think about things and still decide to do them even if they are fruitless, pointless, time wasting and relatively, well, just not the worlds greatest idea.

We went to Chadstone. Hello materialistic capitol of Melbourne. Some ‘mega’ sale on store (ie: all) wide. It wasn’t that great. Traffic was horrendous getting in, we parked smartly in a side street. (Bought David, Jess’ brother along with us) The place was packed. Said hello to Alice in CottonOn. Tried to shop. Didn’t get much. I found the Les Miserables dvd in Borders cheap, which I’ve been after for ages so I got that and a top.

Jess and I had a really good talk in the car on the way there about church and ideas around that and what to do about various friendship circles. Good to challenge her on some stuff and in turn be a bit challenged.

We discussed materialism on the way home. Jess’s, “I’m starting to really get it”. Which is all very well. But actions and words have to match, we did visit a place where it was pretty much rampant with it and although we didn’t buy into much (quite literally) we still entertained the should be now less welcome stranger.

I am quite simply a bit annoyed at myself for bothering to go shopping this evening. I was at the shops earlier today anyway after dropping the silly dvd back and looking for Christmas presents (entirely not very successful) until Jess picked me up.

Such are choices, actions follow them and regrets chase after them like the wind.

General Work

A long time online and nothing much here.

To keep things shortish.

Had a muchly enjoyable day with Sam. Lunch at the ‘new cafe’ didn’t happen as it wasn’t open nor does it serve lunch, the guy very kindly caught us leaving from looking in but could only offer us muffins and not well, lunch. We walked about a km up the road to Morrisons (the usual) after we checked C’s which I discarded becuase I has no atmosphere and uses Curlz MT as a signage font. Bumped into Iain and his car. Decided Morrisons was too expensive so went for burgers from the Charcoal Chicken place.

Walked the town, quite boring this actual place I live. Decided spontaneously to go to the movies (seeing as we now had Iain’s car at hand). Drove all the way there. Decide there was nothing we wanted to see. Ho hummed for ages over renting something (for free as I got phone credit) Sam and I eventually got Bewitched. Drove home. Iain left.

Movie wasn’t terrible, but not real great either. Oh, before that I had to walk the dog, so Sam spent the time questioning me about guys which was funny and a tad annoying all at the same time 😛

That was my day. Nothing profound except for even more relationship orientated conversations, one of those between God and me.

And now I must sleep once this massive file finishes downloading. A whole 27MB which is rather a lot from someone who doesn’t *cough* download certain things (that cough being entirely directed at you Tom).

No Bec does not like anyone.

THANK YOU, another ripper of an article might have to take up the line about singleness and why I am. Although I have yet to entirely figure that all out.
