Hey everyone, I kind of skipped a few days of blogging, but I think I’m back.
So the other day while looking at the list of holidays, I noticed Laura B’s suggestion for a Summer reading list. Normally, I wouldn’t know what to write because I’m not as big of a reader as I should be. I can go months and months without picking up a book. This time, though, I’ve got two of them! Woot!
– “Bridget Jones’s Diary” – by Helen Fielding (I loved the movie and wanted to check out the book – I love reading the book so far!)
– “The Bad Place” – by Dean Koontz (Haven’t done much with this one yet, but the beginning made me feel anxious, so that’s a good sign. My mom recommended the book to me, she said it was pretty twisted.)
Next topic: I woke up the other day with a craving for French toast. I have not had homemade French toast since I lived at home with my mom. I had the necessary ingredients (except cinnamon, but my mom never used that stuff in her recipe) and went to work on it. I knew it would turn out right when the familiar French toast smell wafted through the air. They tasted great too. Success.
Another topic: A friend and I went to see a movie on Saturday for some comic relief. Instead of going with “The Hangover”, we went to see “Year One”. Erm…..yeah. It was one of those instances where they picked out all the things I thought were funny and put them in the trailer, just to fool me into thinking that this wasn’t a movie that led us from one crass, obnoxious gag to the next. But what should we have expected, it’s a movie about cavemen. Two cavemen buddies (Michael Cera and Jack Black) venture past the mountains to find out that there is life beyond their territory. They go from an Adam and Eve situation (eating an apple from the forbidden tree of knowledge), stumble upon Cane and Able, and…well you get the idea. There were some funny scenes in it, I’ll admit. In fact, this is one of those painfully stupid movies that I’ll buy for emergency situations, when I need to laugh at something stupid. They’ll join the ranks of the rest of my collection, right next to my “Scary Movie” collection. Plus there are outtakes at the end of the movie. Can’t beat that.
And um, I think that’s it for now.
