Birthday Blog

As I type this at 4:25PM, it is exactly 90 minutes until I am officially 26 years old. I've always liked that, the nice, set time of my birth: 5:55PM on Tuesday, March 20th, 1984.

So I'm 26 and I'll be happy to leave 25 behind. Its one saving race is that I wrote my second feature length script during that time (God, I've gone on and on about that bloody script for so long.) The third and (for the time-being) final draft will be completed on April 13th. I know this because I refuse to wait any longer to get it done.

I'm unemployed again and hunting for work, but if I'm lucky I'll get a late birthday present of my unemployment assistance back. But I haven't received a letter from my last employer or P45 (official document thingy) to show I'm not working anymore. Must give him a call.

It hasn't been a very exciting week. I bought myself Transmetropolitan Vol. 1 yesterday and a couple of DVDs that were ridiculously inexpensive: Blade Runner - The Final Cut and The Fall. I've got a backlog of movies I haven't watched yet, so I expect it'll be another month before I put them on.

Oh, went to an open mic poetry reading on Thursday night. I'll write a little about that later, but I just got a text from my buddy Orla so it's time to go out and celebrate, or something.

PS - even if the book's set in America, I can't help but hear Spider Jerusalem with a South London accent.

Hm, I'm not sure where Transmet takes place... It seems to be a mix of America and England, it's not actually said where it is.
