Hey all! What did you do this weekend? I didn’t do much, but I’m off today and tomorrow, too. Tonight my nephew graduates from high school! Woot! We go to dinner first and then to the place it all happens.
Yesterday I finally got to see “Rachel Getting Married”. I felt like I wasn’t watching a movie, but rather shoved into first an AA meeting and then to one awkward, stressful family gathering after another. Won’t see that movie again. The acting was great, but it was too depressing.
I bought the movie “Accepted” and it arrived in the mail this weekend. It’s a funny movie about a high school grad who’s been rejected from every college. Out of desperation he creates a fake acceptance letter from a college that doesn’t exist. One thing leads to another, and he and his friends have created the South Harmon Institute of Technology (S.H.I.T.). There are some great moments in the movie including the soundtrack. I love all of the characters, too (except, of course the Dean of the authentic college and his gang of frat boys that knows something is up and wants to tear down South Harmon to make room for a more dramatic entrance to his college). The students also create their own curriculum. One student just wanted to learn to blow stuff up with his mind, so that’s what he focused on. Just a funny, don’t-have-to-think-too-much movie for a weekend.
Did some cleaning this weekend (the bathroom is extra shiny), helped my mom hang a cupboard and that was pretty much the bulk of my weekend. I got to sleep in, too. I will try to take some photos of graduation and post them up soon too.
Here are the bright, cheerful doors of the Methodist church in Berea.
