Love Actually

Posted on Saturday 31st March 2007 at 00:00
I've just become the happiest person in the world, at least for the next couple of hours, as I've just found my long lost copy of Love Actually!

For those who don't know, which I'm guessing is everyone, since I don't think I ever wrote about it, I lent a number of DVDs out to my siblings over the summer, since my DVD collection is by far the biggest in the family. As usual, I left it up to the last minute to pack before returning to uni, and so had to round up my films very quickly.

It wasn't until a couple of months later that I discovered, upon opening the box, that my Love Actually disc was missing. This made me very cross, and things were not improved by the complete lack of interest in the crisis shown by my brothers. I had of course expected both of them to drop everything they were doing to tear the house apart looking for the DVD that one of them had somehow managed to lose. Instead they just shrugged and told me that they didn't think they still had it.

Since neither of my brothers had the good fortune to be born with a brain, neither could remember putting the disc down somewhere, or indeed having it in the first place. Being the busy sort of chap that I am, I hadn't a clue which of them had asked me for it, and in the interests of fair justice I didn't feel I could torture them both for the disc, so I had to let the matter rest.

Earlier this afternoon I felt the need for something jolly to listen to while tidying my room, and the Love Actually sound track was chosen. Half an hour ago I discovered myself with the empty DVD box in my hand. I'd tried searching the other boxes on my shelf for the disc before, trying to remember what else I'd lent out. Today though I couldn't cope any more, and so I resolved to go through all 70 odd DVDs in my room until I found it.

About half way through I picked up Wayne's World 2, which gave a curious rattle as I brought it down to eye level. With my heart in my mouth I pulled open the case to reveal Wayne's World 2 neatly placed upon its holder in the middle of the box. I was about to turn away in disappointment when my eye caught a shiny reflection from the inside front cover.

It was a disc! A disc, dammit!

I turned it over and loo and behold, the glorious broken red heart that couldn't belong to any other film :D

As soon as I've finished writing this I'm so putting it on, no matter what time of night it is.

Happy love for everyone!
