Herself: Was very slow all day yesterday. Like a slug, actually. Got menus done, shopping done, wrote a first draft of a piece for the poetry group, started a new book, and slowly woke up. Perhaps I need a tiny bit of real coffee in my decaf to get going.
Reading: The fifth Bill Crider. He’s one of those writers that give you a comfortable read despite murder and mayhem scattered all over the landscape.
Balance: A not at all bad at all dinner from the Cooking Light Low Fat Cookbook. Sometimes my cooking leaves a lot to be desired.
For the second year in a row, movie night has been a hit. These days I keep an eye out for films we haven’t seen. Whipping through TarJay the other day, I found a copy of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slumdog_Millionaire >“Slumdog Millionaire” on the five dollar table. This left me wondering how many other best picture and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Academy_Award_for_Best_Picture>Oscar Winners we have missed seeing.
Quite a few, I discover from the Wikipedia list of Academy award winners. And after watching that charming video of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rita_Hayworth>Rita Hayworth yesterday, I became aware of all the musicals I’ve missed also. Something will have to be done about that.
Movie night began as a replacement for the NCIS duo that goes on hiatus every summer. Since both G and I love our NCIS’s and there’s nothing that appeals to us that night on the box, G thought of movies.
We have been working our way through our own collection, through some truly garbage sci-fi G finds here and there, and some of the blander stuff I like. Now that I’m awake to the broader venue, not coming from a movie going family, I think I will be picking some of the older films when it’s my turn.
