I just watched Mission Impossible. The first one. The one where Tom Cruise looks like a teenager and Vanessa Redgrave starts to look like Maggie Smith.
It was an entertaining, if rather incomprehensible (at times) romp with a touch of humour (although not as much as the last one, which came over as a parody of Johnny English) and with a very sixties feel.
The plot involves someone trying to get something for someone else for a some reason or another but, as it turns out, not for the reasons we were led to believe. Basically, it was all a bit of a double cross kind of a thing where no-one, not even Tom, knew what was happening from one scene to the next.
And why am I telling you this? Well, it’s because this is what my life is like right now. I feel like people are sneaking around behind the scenes, moving stuff. I don’t mean that I wake up in the morning to find that my phone is at the foot of my bed when I could have sworn I left it on the table by my head, I mean that things just ain’t what they seemed they were going to be like when I first found out about them.
Everything changes. Nothing stays the same. Nothing is stable. No one remains as they were when I first knew them – not even me. Especially not me. I change from day to day, and I don’t just mean my underwear.
Maybe I’m just complaining about myself here. Yeah, when I think about it – this is certainly true. There are levels within levels in my head.
Sometimes I think that I would like to know what’s happening in all parts of my subconscious, but at other times, it strikes me that if I did then it would terrify the heck out of me.
Anyways, enough of that – it’s nearly bedtime now. For all those who are about to sleep – may the moon bring you sweet dreams and then the sun give you the means to make them come true. Yeah, I know – schmaltzy, but I made it up all by myself, without any help! 🙂
