I have never seen Waterworld, but I think I've heard about it before.
Kevin Costner is very serviceable in certain parts, but not really a good actor overall. But given the right part he can be very okay.


My mother is acting very strangely towards me these days, and I don't know why.
She keeps making all these off hands comments about things I like and she keeps bringing up the fact that so many of my favourite things are somehow related to gay culture. I'm still not comfortable discussing this with my parents and I never know what to say, I just shrug and look away awkwardly whenever it is mentioned.
I always thought it wouldn't be an issue with them, or at least not my mother, but it seems as though it is. It's not like anything has changed, really.
It feels like she wants me to admit to something I'm not even sure about myself and I don't know what to do about it. I can't say I'm gay, I just can't.
And I'm going out with work next week and she keeps saying things like "well, if you get drunk you're on your own, I'm not picking you up. and I don't want you to bring any guys or girls home"
What? Like I'll go out and get a personality transplant on the way. I don't understand what is going on with her these days, but it definitely hurts my feelings when she says stuff like that.
Frikk agrees that she has been acting strangely, and he sticks up for me sometimes, so I do talk to him about it from time to time.
Any tips on dealing with a crazy parent?

Oh you mentioned not liking Martin Freeman but not knowing why, I remembered who I'm like that with (besides Tom Cruise, but I know why I don't like him) Charlize Theron.  She does that stupid J'Adore Dior commercial and everytime I see it I just get so annoyed.

It's good that Frikk sees it too, so that you at least know it's not just you being sensitive.

Can you not talk to her about it?  And say that Frikk has noticed it too.

I'm so excited about Snow White And The Huntsman, I'm trying to reserve judgment on Charlize until I've seen it, but for some reason she just irks me. So it's not just you


No, it's definitely not a sensitivity thing.
I'm hoping that in the end, it won't matter. It seems like she wants to acknowledge something that I'm not willing to. I'd prefer not to talk about it at all, ever.

Ugh thank God.  There's just something about her and I don't know what it is.

Maybe she's trying to get you to say something.  By keep saying things she might think you'll just end up blurting out whatever, you know?

I'm, like, 99% sure that she knows and just wants me to say something.
It's not something I've hidden, it's a little hard to explain, but it's pretty obvious.
But I am not comfortable saying it out loud and having it really be out there, you know? I just figured I can avoid the subject until I have to say something, like if I meet someone.

That seems fair enough to me.  Until then you are either just gonna have to say that to her or ignore the comments though.

Ooh love the new set!

Holy f*cking Mara!
It is the best film of the year for me, no doubt. Outstanding on every level.
And Mara? I have no words, she was so amazing I couldn't help squeezing every now and then. It's a stunning work of art and a powerhouse of performances.
That is about the most coherent thing I can say about this film.
Comes with my highest recommendation. Go see it!

I'm sorry for just being gone. Tje ?ast weeks have been both great and living hell.

Told two (now ex) friends that  I don't want them at my bachelorette party or whatever it's called. One got hurt and the other yelled at me. Now they put up a status saying that they're selling train tickets to Trondheim and then deleted me off Facebook.

I feel like crap. But at the same time I feel that I did the right thing. They never do anything to meet me. I've driven them around, fixed them places to sleep, lent them money when they needed it and just always supported them. I decided to give myself a fresh start on the new year and remove "friends" who just drains energy.

How can something feel so bad and good at the same time?

Good for you, taking a stand. I think you're too nice for your own good sometimes. They sound like terrible friends. Have you known them for along time, or just a couple of years? Don't feel bad about it, if they never help you out or are there for you when you need them, they're not friends.

We met at... high school (videreg?ende?) and hung a lot together back then. But after we were done there, we just... grew apart. And for the last six months or so, I've thought a lot about it.

I think it was the right thing to do. But it hurts.

Happy new year, by the way!

Did you have a good holiday?

Yeah, people grow apart. You are pretty much one of two people from early highschool I still have any contact with. Which reminds me, if you come to T?nsberg anytime soon, let me know, I'd like to see you

Yep, I had a pretty good holiday. Worked a lot, so I'm very tired.
I've been having hard time going to work lately, I don't know why. Nothing has changed and I still adore the people I work with, but I'm just so tired all the time. It feels a little like I'm slipping back into anxiety and I can't deal with that again.

I'm in T?nsberg now, actually. I've become quite an expert at express vacations I'm free today and tomorrow before two, we return to Trondheim around three But if you're free today or tomorrow, it would be awesome to meet up! Even though I'm not completely well yet

Aww, that sucks. I've been off sick since... halloween. And I can't quite decide if I'm going back around the 20th, or if I should wait until the end of January, just to be sure that I am allright, since even taking the bus makes everything bad.

I've experienced that if I work a lot over a period and most of the days are "just ok", then it's easier to slip into a light depression then if I have a lot of those "awesome" days at work. Makes sense? No? Thought so

I have today off, I was half planning on going to see a movie tonight. If you want to and feel up to it you could come along?

You're still not getting well? You've been sick forever now. Just remember it won't help rushing back to work if you end up getting worse and have to go back into sick leave.

That makes a lot of sense. I don't think all the early shifts I have are agreeing with me. Being pretty much all alone for six hours and then have to leave when people get in is just sad.

Ooh, that sounds like fun! What and when?

No, it takes forever! Allthough I have more good days now, it still ain't getting well. So tired of felling like the world is moving around me!

Oh, I know that feeling! It's so much more fun to work together with people! Believe me, I know! Most of the summer I worked at the night trains, so I was alone with the conductors. But since we have different tasks aboard, some days I only had contact with the customers. And then I got messages from my colleagues during daytime telling me how much fun they where having. Glad I'm back at the daytime trains, with at least one, up to three other colleagues. And I get so many messages from them now, telling me how much they miss me!

Gah, still feeling bad after yesterday. I think I'm afraid that they'll turn people against me for what I did. But at the same time, people like Marlene fully support me. So it's probably just my angst for being left alone.

Went to Platekompaniet yesterday, there's so many movies that I want! We rent about three movies each week, some are good and some are ok just to see once. But I really want to get Winter's Bone into my collection. Saw Blue Valentine, but it was so... feel-bad that I've forced it out of my mind!
I really liked Hanna too, it was so different! And I got Bridesmaids for Christmas, I didn't think I would like it as much as I did!

I'm leaning towards The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo at 7. But if there is anything you'd rather see, just let me know

Right! I spend days alone with my boss. And it makes me so nervous, I can't stand still because I'm afraid they'll think I don't do anything. So if it's quiet and nothing to do, I walk around in circles. I'm pretty sure I look crazy

If it makes you feel any better, I fully support you too. And if they turn people against you, the people who turn isn't really your friends either. Remember that

Winter's Bone is so good, but I actually don't own it. I don't know if it's something I'll ever feel like watching again.
Bridesmaids is pretty funny, I picked it up on Black Friday and didn't expect to care much for it, but it was fine. Food poisoning isn't and never will be funny though.
Hanna is one of my favourite 2011 movies, Saoirse Ronan is amazing in it. Soundtrack is really good too.
