It was a long, slow weekend-- just the way I like them.
Mate and I got to go out to Dinner and a Movie--it was awesome, although Mate called a moratorium on all movie knitting. It was sort of a shame--I could have finished a hat--but then, Mate and I couldn't have held hands during the whole thing either, and I would have been sorry to miss that. We saw Valentines Day, which I liked very much, although the 'big shocker' at the end was something I already knew about--and pretty much predicted from the beginning. All is well--Eric Dane and Bradley Cooper will simply star in some of my more prurient fantasies from here on out, that's all.
(As a side note, Mate and I lost count of all the people in the megacast that had worked together previously but who shared NO SCREEN TIME WHATSOEVER in this particular movie. It was a fun game. Seriously.)
On a side note, I'd like to say it was fun to see that as many of you hold book grudges as violent as mine. You had some good suggestions for 'break-yer-heart' reading--I'll be sure to give those to Chicken!
Oh yeah-- today was a yummy yummy hot guys marathon. Didn't get alot done today--but I did get a nice steroidal dose of Winchester love, and, well, YUM! On the same note, a friend (and fellow DSP stablemate) bless her, had a line on an AWESOME homemade calendar--and she sent me one. I owe her. I'm not sure how to pay this back, but this calendar ROCKS--and it's very Dean-centric... THANK YOU, MARY!!!
Chicken went to a birthday party at Teddy Crafters. *smirk* She got a stuffed wolf and named him 'Beo'. *smirk* Beo Woof. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA... Sorry. Had to get that out of my system. It worked for me!
Zoomboy and Squish were outside today--I took my knitting outside and tilted my head back in the sun and tried to make them go play on their own so I could sleep. (Did a LOT of that today!)
While they were playing, Zoomboy started to freak out--"There's a spider on the wall! It's SKKKEEEEEEERRRRRYYYY!!"
Squish grabbed the Barbie doll in her hand by the legs, like a baseball bat, and said, "Here, Zoomboy. Go whack it with this!" And that was it. Nap gone. I was laughing so hard I almost fell out of my chair. Love that kid.
And tomorrow, Chicken comes with me to work--it's 'President's week' in her district, and my district just spread out a bunch of three day weekends, and, well, my students are interested in her. As they should be. She's smart and beautiful and fully out of their league. Much hilarity will ensue.
I'll be sure to tell you about it!
(Oh yeah. I got THE. BEST. VALENTINES. GIFT. EVER. I didn't deserve it. I'll probably get it stolen. Again. But I got it. And I love it. And I'll defend it with my life and with my sharp, feral pointy teeth if necessary. It's BE-YOO-TI-FUL.)
