So, even though I know I saw that Bruno was a 15 somewhere, it turns out that the 18 version is currently being shown (it has three minutes including something about pretending to have oral sex with a dead body) so I couldn't see it. The woman serving us at the cinema asked me how old I was and I knew that she wouldn't believe that I was 18. I've always looked older than my age, but I think now it's catching up with me. To be fair, I wear no makeup and often have my hair up so that does make me look younger and it wouldn't be too hard for me to look 18. Apparently in a few weeks (once all the >18 year olds have seen it) they'll start showing the 15 version. I think I'll just wait for the DVD. I don't want to miss out on any extra rudeness :)

I did feel like giving the woman a lecture. Really, how much worse can Bruno be than Borat? That was a 15, and a very good one too which I've seen many, many times. That has racism, sexism, strong language and a long scene consisting entirely of two naked men fighting in a hotel and eventually ending up on stage in front of hundreds of people at a cinema.

Me and my father then went to Starbucks where I ordered a chocolate cream Frappuccino but it took a long time so my dad went to check and it turned out that my first drink had been taken by another customer. We ordered again, and after a while my second drink had been customer. Frustrated, we ordered for a third time. Thankfully, it got to us then and was upgraded to the largest size for free.

So, I suppose it all worked out alright in the end. I only have to wait a few months to see Bruno. Still, it's quite disappointing.

On an irrelevant note, I've never been able to eat ice cream from a tub, for these reasons:

1) I like to decide how much of something I'm going to eat so I don't overindulge, and with a tub it would be quite easy to finish the whole thing off.

2) What if someone else wants some of the ice cream? I know I wouldn't want someone else double-dipping their spoon into my potential dessert.

3) I'd feel so... well, I assume I'd feel like those women on sit-coms that eat ice cream to get over ex-boyfriends.

So I like bowls. M&S ice cream bowls :)

  1. Eating ice cream straight from the tub sounds great. Mum won't let me though...

    Perhaps if everybody had a tub of their own, the sharing dilemma would be solved.
