Do you miss the cinema?

I used to moan like fuck about it. The people eating loudly from rustle bags and talking and generally being distracting. The fact that the sheer size of the screens and amazing visuals and sound sort of stopped me from fully concentrating on the dialogue and plot sometimes. Etc etc

But as much as I like my home setup I do miss the experience, I wonder if they will make a comeback. Kind of miss going to see a flick with mates or a bird then getting food and beers after :icon_frown:

I've always loved the cinema. It's the only way I can watch something without getting distracted. I don't go enough.

They do what the always do, decide on some half arsed measures nobody takes seriously anymore while doing everything they can to appeal to their voters. Eased the third lockdown two weeks ago and numbers are shooting up again. Only good thing they did was free tests almost everywhere now so you can at least get your hair done or see some family members without guilt. I for one can at least count myself lucky it hasn't affected my line of work. Yet.

Seems like most governments around the world. You have members of the Tory party having a pop at their own party over here for not easing lockdown sooner even though is obvious to fucking everyone what will happen if they do so.

That tent they had over the road from where I work to store the bodies seems to have gone now though.

Well that's something. Just wish they'd hurry the fuck up with the vaccinations. All considered so far I was lucky enough my girlfriend is in Finland so I could at least go see her without too much hindrance.
