Very Merry Unbirthday to Me

I got it in my zombie eaten brain that it would be a brilliant idea to pick up a few things on my way to the cinema today.
So here's me, trekking through the snowy city and not bothering to check the weather report before I left the house. I don't even want to know what the windchill was today cause I might cry.  Actually, it wasn't as bad as that, it was harsh winds that took my breath away few times but not really cold.
Movie started at 1:30pm, I grabbed an 11:25am bus thinking I had plenty of time to cart my arse over to the craft store then over to the mall before heading over to the cinema. 
Damned if I didn't stand in line at the craft store for close to 25minutes.  Then had to walk through the traffic to get to the mall.  The record store... I still call it that cause I'm old damn it!  the record store was surprisingly empty so I got out of there right quick.  Spent too much but hey happy un-birthday to me.  I bought Alice in Wonderland in case you didn't clue in, got Beauty and the Beast too cause I felt it was a Disney sort of afternoon.  Oh my god highway robbery on those damned cartoons!  Have you priced a frealing Disney DVD lately????   Then headed over to the tea place cause I'm addicted.  By this time it was 12:50pm and I'm thinking "oh I have plenty of time still before the movie"  
Good god man!  standing inline until 1:15pm.  Holy dren!  Then fight the damned traffic to get to the cinema which was only across the street.  Remember, I don't drive must walk everywhere.  So by this point I felt like my body was going to give out on me.  I get there with less then 8minutes to spare and the girl at the ticket counter screwed up on my ticket.  FREAL! Had to wait, and have I mentioned by this point my lungs hurt from the winds and my boot was nearly bursting the zipper from my foot and ankle swelling. Manage to just get in and find a seat as the opening credits started.
Must remind myself next time I want to do that much walking to do it in the summer when I do not need to be wearing heavy winter boots.
Oh, I went to see One for the Money  in case you were wondering.
