Damn I love alone time. I recommend long walks with Rain in England.

Walking/riding my bike. It might only apply to smaller towns, but lately I've gotten kind of obsessed with the 'middle of the night bike ride through deserted streets' thing. Like, hopping on your bike at 2 AM or whatever. Air is crisper, it's simultaneously exciting and calming and it's oddly conducive to thinking and contemplation.
I like doing this. Especially while listening to music. There's a certain kind of record that just sounds right cruising under street lamps.
I don't have any lights for my bike right now though.

and yeah, totally into this, here's the mix i made three years ago inspired by it. I was in the countryside.

'cocks already said Post to LPTJ, but do all the things suggested in this thread, and then tell us about them. If I've done something satisfying by myself, I like to tell people sometimes about it. Except if it's the thing alistair alluded to, though I mean I guess we have places for talking about that if you really want to share.

Today I took a nine mile round trip into town on my bike, browsed Waterstones bookshop, bought a copy of The Gruffalo that makes sounds, and a Gruffalo soft toy for my nieces birthday, ate a chilli cheeseburger and fries, and then went to The Cornerhouse to watch The Tree Of Life.

The film was absolutely terrible, and now holds the distinction of being the first movie I have ever walked out on. Other than that, the rest of the day was really nice.

HAHAHA I can't tell you how many times I've heard that exact statement from people demanding their money back for Tree of Life at work. Did you make it past the dinosaurs? (I liked it, though)

Everything else sounds about your day sounds pleasant as hell, though! Your niece is lucky to have such a Chettin' uncle.

lol that movie looks like total snoozefest oscar bait. Sorry about the dollars and hour you wasted, Chet. And I fully support Chettin' being an adverb to connote awesomeness.

Tree of Life was amazing (opinion). It is in no way Oscar 'bait' (fact). So far among my friends, if you have liked other films by this director, you will also like this one. If you only liked Badlands, and maaaaaaaaaybe Days of Heaven, you may or may not like this one. If you don't like Malick, this won't be the film that converts you.

I won't waste my breath explaining what I thought was so great about it.

hmmmmmmmmmm, maybe I'll check it out. Only one theater is showing it here but it seems to be running longer than most other movies they have there.

Don't see it.

eta: That goes for all three of you. Life's short, don't waste your time on something that is at best marginally likely to hold value for you.

I thought it was great, but I'm only willing to recommend it to someone if I pay for their tickets.

I'd actually like to hear this, if you're willing to explain it. I haven't seen it, but a number of my friends have, none of whom particularly liked it. There was a lot of damning with faint praise, and some outright dislike. I would really like to hear a perspective from someone who did like it, because I was sort of surprised by how much everyone disliked it, given how excited they all were to see it.
