Yeah, so I had a really great day today.

I'm sure the other two guys (hajime, bbt) will post about it.

Today I worked at Eungella and Finch Hatton. Eungella sits on top of a small mountain overlooking the Pioneer Valley, and Finch Hatton sits at the base. Last week somewhere on LJ (I couldn't be bothered finding the link) we agreed to make a day of it, seeing as how I do so little work anyway on these days.

So we zoomed up to Eungella first thing, I did my bit of work, then we went over to the Chalet and played pool for a while, had a couple drinks (well Greg and I did ...) then went and had lunch, before going back down to Finch Hatton, where I worked for a bit more.

After that we got tickets for Final Fantasy, which I think comes out tomorrow. So I'm pretty excited.

Just one problem though.

I forgot about our "rule" about seeing popular movies ... we don't see them with anyone else but each other (I'm talking about Emma and me here). So I told her. And she's pissed. Because I'm a two-faced hypocritical prick.

So now my good day has come to an end, with a nasty argument. Don't be surprised if I really really do not enjoy this movie in the slightest.

That rule seems like it's not really worth fighting about.

The movie is awesome, but go in expecting bad acting and dialog.

I feel an explanation is necessary.

Its not even really a rule, hence the quotes. It started with me, because Emma kept going to movies with her male work friends; movies that I wanted to see with her. I didn't mind at first, but then it became a regular affair, so I put up a couple of polite protests.

Also, I've always tried to confront what seems like small problems in my relationships, because (and I know its a terrible cliche) the small problems can be the ones that break a relationship.

There's more to say, but thats for another time.

Doh ... I think I asked about that, but I'm not sure if you really knew what I was going on about at that point. :)

I understand why the rule was instituted, but I agree with Evan. It doesn't really seem worth arguing about. *laughs* It doesn't seem worth it, but I can already hear comments that might be thrown at you. Good luck, Mister. :P

Easy for you to say :P

I would see it as definitely worth arguing about. And that would go for whatever side I happened to be on. Yes, I am a contradiction in terms ;)

My whole point here is that Steve is right, it's the little things that count.

No, it's not easy for me to say, mainly because I know I'm probably horribly out of touch with reality on this one. And I realise you'd argue -- it's one of the strange things you do well. :P

The little things may count, but in what sense? Are they the things to argue about, or the things to not argue about? Or, put another way, is it important to get your point across on every single little point, or should you just let things slide?

Actually, I guess that's more a matter of personal preference, assertiveness, self-esteem and a whole bunch of other issues.

Trying to get my point across on this little point
Who's talking about arguing? ;) When I said the little things count it didn't pertain to arguing. The little things that count are the gestures, be they words or physical actions.

Enough preaching from me, I have to go to the gym and generally waste time so I don't have to go buy some stupid expansion pack for some stupid game like "dabble" or something like that ;)

Ahh, that'd be why internet relationships don't work, eh?

I think you'll find the game's proper name is "dag-glo". It's a set of glow-in-the-dark stickers featuring sexless figures in trackpants and uggboots.

couples
The thing I have never understood about couples, especially long term or long distance ones, is their ability to fight about anything at all, for no good reason. As Steve knows, I've done the long-term relationship-stupid-fight thing and in the radioactive glow of past two years I've realised a lot of things. Yeah, you politely suggested that she might like to wait for you to go see them, it's not like you slammed down her Maccas tray, and screamed in her face, "MY FUCKING GOD, DONT YOU EVER GO AND SEE ANYTHING WITHOUT ME AGAIN!! BITCH!!".

It's your life.
