waiting. always waiting. tick, tick tick.

oh, okay. so i'm only waiting for my boxes to arrive so i can start packing my stuff, and for the guy to come around from the second hand furniture shop to give me a price he'll buy my stuff for. but i get impatient waiting when i don't know what times things are happening, when i feel sort of limited in what i can do (regards to either packing OR just plain going out) until after they arrive. oh nevermind. perhaps i'm just whinging too much. really, it's not a problem.

i've been going through some of my old webpages from 2000 onwards (although i began webpaging in 1998), and it's funny, really, reading back on old journal entries... and actually, i found a whole bunch of entries that i never added to my archives here when i got this new livejournal. it's like this weird trip down memory lane or something. i wonder how much i've really changed since i was 17, 20, 21? i miss webpaging. i have plans for another one to come soon, but it's probably going to have to wait now until i'm well settled back in adelaide. i wonder if i still remember any of the html, style codes that i once used? i look back on my old pages, and sure, compared to most here today, they're not at the same level, but they were still mine, and they still hold some sort of magic to me. one day there will be another.

i saw "bowling for columbine" last night, and all i can say is... wow.

"Bowling for Columbine" is such an amazing movie. Just the other day I watched Michael Moore's other documentary, "Roger and Me." It's about the auto plants closing in Flint, Michigan ... but you know, more than that too. I'm from Michigan, so "Bowling for Columbine" was weird for me to see in a way ... I mean, there are scenes shot right where I grew up in that movie!! Like, when they go to Windsor, in Canada? My friends and I used to go there, it was only 40 minutes away from us across the water from Detroit, and go to the bars and stuff there all the time. And the mall, the big one with the Dick Clark's Grill and everything? That's the closest mall to my parents' house in Michigan ... I go to the movies with my sister there whenever I'm back home.

hehe ... I always tell people that when they say they saw "Bowling for Columbine", because besides being the best film made this milennium, it also has shots of all my old haunts.

oh wow... actually, when i was watching the movie, i was thinking about the people i know from Michigan (from the internet etc), and thinking about how weird it must be for them to see that movie... and probably, like you, seeing familiar places on screen...
it just makes it all the more real, and somehow, thats kinda sad.

you're right, it did make it closer to home ... plus it was a big eye-opener, about the mall and how awful that woman's employment situation was. *sigh*

oh, i know... that was the part that scared me most of all, actually... i'm so scared of one day being in that sort of situation, where you have to virtually sell your soul to afford to live... some people just aren't lucky at all :\
