Space Odyssey GPS Style

22 03 2010

If you’ve seen the movie 2001 A Space Odyssey you’ll understand…

Today I’d made plans to meet my friend Tom to go and see a movie; The Crazies.  I’m sort of familiar with the location of the cinema, but not familiar enough that I can get there without directions.  So, being the owner of a car that has a GPS system I punched in the information and followed the directions.

The wrong directions!

Turns out there are three locations with the same name, the first one I went to turned out to be nearly 10 miles from the correct destination, the second one was also incorrect, but close enough that I could see the correct cinema from my location.

Ugh!  I’d be lying if I didn’t say I didn’t swear loudly several times.

I did make it to the movie in time to have only missed two of the previews.  The film itself, while not fantastic was entertaining enough.  Suspenseful enough that I jumped several times.  All good fun.

So that was my Monday.  It started with Pilates, included a convoluted drive to the cinema, a movie, and home for salad for dinner, and now a night in front of the television.  Some time this week I’m going to have to start painting again…
