peculia is a girl who lives in a gothic world full of looming castles, scary forests and windy streets with ghouls around every corner. she is extremely inquisitive, is fearless and traipses around in a skimpy purple dress. now tell me, what is there not to like about that premise?
last thursday was the uk premiere of the “dark knight” and charlotte and i went to watch it with our friend chris. i don’t normally go to premieres but our friend chris is a big blockbuster fan and so it was nice to get swept up into the whole opening night thing.
organisationally the night was a bit of a balls up, however. we ended up getting to the cinema 20 minutes late, by which time we’d already missed the first 5 minutes of the film! i had to do lots of breathing exercises ’cause i’m so anal about seeing the beginning of films i’m bordering on autistic.
things got worse when, predictably, there weren’t any seats left for us (it wasn’t reserved seating). i managed to find charlotte a seat and then had to go and sit on the floor in the very front. it was one of those concave screens and so, craning my neck up, i got something of a twisted view of the film.
