It's Paul's birthday on Tuesday, but as he is still on nights, he won't be around to spend it at home with me.
He finished nights yesterday morning, came home and went to bed, and more or less got his body clock back to normal for a couple of days at home before starting his shift again on Sunday evening.
And so, with this in mind, we have had to reinvent his birthday celebrations to fit into today and tomorrow (Friday and Saturday)
This afternoon, after I finished work, we headed on down into Redruth, where the local cinema was showing 'Paul'. It's a film that we both instantly wanted to see, mainly because Simon Pegg and Nick Frost were behind it. We loved Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Spaced, so knew that 'Paul' would be funny.
They play characters that love comic books, and save to travel to America to visit Comic-con, and then drive across the states in an RV stopping at all of the allien hot spots, like Area 51, on their way.
On the drive, they nearly knock down and alien, called Paul, who had been living on earth for 60 odd years advising the government, and movie producers!
It then becomes their task to keep him safe until 'Paul's family can come get him!
We had a great time, and really enjoyed the film, especially as we were able to sit on a leather sofa and drink and eat from coffee tables ..... Cinemas have certainly changed in the last few years!
If you don't mind a bit of bad language, which is used perhaps more than normal due to Paul's character, and so acceptable in this context, it's a great movie.
Our score? 9/10 Watch out for the one liners, they are awsome!
