Last night I watched This is 40.
It is described on IMDB as a comedy.
Let me tell you, it is not a comedy. It is a horror. It is basically The Hills Have Eyes for parents.
I am scared, and scarred!
If you are 40, anywhere near 40 or perhaps thinking of starting a family at any point in the future please do not watch this.
It depicts a couple constantly at each others throats who very occasionally remember that once upon a time they had a different life and they were happier.
GREAT! Thanks for that.
Does it all work out brilliantly in the end; um, not so much. The guy gets knocked off his bike and breaks a rib, the gal gets unexpectedly pregnant and is far from thrilled about it.
YEY- Real feel good film.
Obviously, it is possible that I am a little hyper sensitive about this whole thing at the moment. My exciting work contract has come to an end and, on opening an email about mortgage rates and all that jazz the dreadful realization finally dawned;
My CV is like a dot the dot, I have yet to make anything of myself AT ALL and, out of sheer desperation this morning I entered the Lorraine win £60,000 competition!! It’s a slippery slope people.
So, I was lamenting my predicament to someone who shall remain nameless. Their advice;
Grow up, Suck it up and get a job that you hate like the rest of the population.
Marvelous and life affirming advice.
I’m off to play join the dots, I mean work on my CV.
Let me know if you can think of any awesome jobs that fit a dysfunctional, neurotic and slightly mental 30 something…I’m sure offers will come flooding in…
PS- If you have come out the other side of the madness please let me know and prevent me from shooting myself in the face. Thanks very much!!
PPS- Please don’t get out the worlds smallest violin, I know that I am actually very, very lucky but sometimes everyone just needs a moan.
PPPS- I’m linking this post up with Vicky’s #BrilliantBlog linky.
