Man, you don't logon for a couple of days and you miss a whole slew of interesting topics.
I love all these movie reviews. I love movies but lately it seems like there are so many that I want to see and no time to get to them. Eric and I were going to attempt to see one this weekend, but I (we) ended up watching some at home. Eric had a presentation for his Saturday morning MBA class and used clips from Office Space, so we sat at the dining room table watching pieces of the DVD on his laptop while he clipped them. I thought I hated that movie the first time I watched it, but find it more amusing with each viewing. Eric can really relate since his old boss reminds him of the "Yah, I'm gonna need you to..." guy. I guess that's why he ultimately left.
While Eric was at class Saturday, after taking a very brisk walk with Sidney (I think it was somewhere in the neighborhood of 19 degrees with a 9 degree wind-chill) I came home to a comfy bowl of soup and popped in the The Grinch with Jim Carrey. I'm not a huge Carrey fan, but I thought masked in a Grinch outfit might help. Well, with my oxygen levels decreasing as my belly gets bigger, I passed out somewhere between the first 10-20 minutes of the film and woke up as the credits were rolling. Guess I'll have to catch that one another time since I now own it.
Saturday night we attempted to take my Mom to PF Chang for dinner. I think I frequent about every two weeks, so it was in order. Unfortunately, our 5:30 dinner outing turned into a 9:00 reservation. Can't believe how out of control that place is still after having been open over a year. So we got take out from the bar and brought it back to our house. Terri and Madeline and Isabel joined in as well. It was a short evening, so Eric and I planned to go to a 10:00 showing of either, The Matrix, Runaway Jury (huge Hackman and Cusack fan), or some humor, Elf (Eric loves Will Ferrel, I love Jon Favreau - anyone ever watch Dinner for Five on IFC?) Eric had a nice fire roaring for our dinner guests and I'd say I lasted until 9:00 and had to be awakened to go up to bed, so no movie that night. We were going to attempt for evening mass on Sunday and go to the new Block E entertainment complex downtown for a 5:30 show, but again, I was so tired at about 3:00 and could barely keep my eyes open for 4:00 mass, that we decided to skip the movie once again. I can only imagine how tired I'm going to be after this child comes if I'm this tired now. Ask anyone in my family how much I love my sleep. I've even been known on occasion to sleep with my eyes open.
I'm hoping to stop at the cemetary today too. I haven't been for a couple of months. I try to stop in and have a chat with my Dad every once in a while, unfortunately any flowers I leave at the grave today will probably freeze by nighttime. But it's the thought that counts, right!
Janine, my mother was so excited to hear about your play and says she would love to come someday to see you in one. So I'll work on getting a hypnotist for her plane ride or a chauffer for a drive to LA, if you send her information of your next show.
