Even though I worked on Saturday, I still have the sensation of returning to work sort of fresh. I did still get three days off, so I guess that can do it. Now, only three more weeks until the kids get their winter break. I am taking the week off between Christmas and New Years and I canNOT wait.
Thursday was a nice day. As I sort of mentioned in my Saturday post, we went to my dad and stepmom's house. That all went well and made for a nice celebration. Afterward, Girlie Girl and I went out to a movie with Kick Back Dude and Princess Diva. Kick Back Dude wanted 2012, Princess Diva wanted Blind Sides. I voted for Precious and won! We all really liked it, although it was very intense and had parts that were difficult to watch.
DR came over on Friday and we watched this awesome movie called Anvil: the Story of Anvil. It was so sweet and charming. You don't have to be a heavy metal fan to enjoy this movie. Everyone mentions Spinal Tap when they mention Anvil and that works...but Anvil is so much better because it is real!
Saturday I worked, but that evening DR and I went to this Stooges film festival.
It was held in this beautiful old theater in Glendale. They showed several shorts, including one in 3-D. Some of the Howards were there and apparently stayed around after to talk to fans. We weren't there for that, but it was a really fun evening. I like going places with DR. We are sort of homebodies it seems, but it is nice when we find something we really want to go out and do.
Yesterday, no movies, per say. We just vegged on the couch watching episodes of A Bit of Fry and Laurie. Funny :-) We were both very drowsy though and probably missed stuff. Oh well...what else is Sunday afternoon for?
I hope you all had a good long weekend and are ready to face the madness ahead that is the holiday season. Maybe tomorrow I will share with you my thoughts on that particular uh, pleasure. Ciao for now!
