Peaceable Like

Things have been rather quiet lately.  Sometimes...too quiet.  But I am inclined to appreciate it, as we are hurtling towards our busiest time of year at the Library. 

This past weekend was nearly motionless.  I had planned to go out with a newly formed Supper Club on Friday evening, but ended up babysitting Little Prince instead.  The little girls and their mom and dad went out to see Marmaduke, but Little Prince isn't yet ready to sit through a movie.  He and I had a fine time though.  He showed me the right way to work a phone and I watched Wall-E again.  One of my favorite movies ever.   Saturday, I was a little under the weather, and was glad to have nothing to do.  I watched "This is Spinal Tap" and "Waiting for Guffman" and did some reading.  Sunday, guess what?  Another quiet day!  I felt better, but stayed quiet.  In the evening Girlie Girl, Handsome Lad, and I went out to Panda Express for dinner, then to see Get Him to the Greek.  We happened to run into Social Animal and a couple of his friends at the theater, seeing the same movie, so that was fun :-) 
This was a movie that DR and I had talked about right about the time he decided to go back to NC.  It was the first movie we agreed to see on our own turf and then discuss, because we both liked Forgetting Sarah Marshall.   Unfortunately, he didn't get to it this weekend.  I'm glad the kids and I went though.  We liked it.  It is one of those movies you probably find either funny or stupid.   I vote funny, but I can see arguments for stupid.   haha!  I like Jonah Hill and I like Russell Brand, in spite of myself :-)  I thought Sean "Diddy" Combs was surprisingly funny, too.

Now I am starting a mini work week.  Three days!  I took Thursday and Friday off, as Thursday is the last day of school and, therefore, Friday is the first day of summer vacation.  Aaaahhhhhh....looking forward to that.  What are you looking forward to?

Well to the point of making everyone sick of hearing it... Friday, when I go home for good to Sanctuary. Today was a great day and I think all of them will be this week as each day takes me closer.

I think a quiet weekend is a good thing especially when you are not up to snuff. I would have enjoyed all those movies... and Wall-E is a favorite of mine too!

Jonah Hill can be so funny, I loved him in "Knocked Up". Then while reading a magazine this weekend while waiting for my mom at the dentist, I read that Russell Brand is engaged to Katie Perry! I didn't check the date of the magazine, but I think it was a current issue.

Next week will be a mini work week for me, so I'm looking forward to that one. But this week I get to leave an hour early three days and then I work from 7:30am to 9:30 am on Friday. Two hours of work on a Friday is fine with me!

I'm looking forward to the beach! 12 days before I leave!

Saw Get Him to the Greek last night, and Diddy made me guffaw. Not a masterpiece by any means, but definitely funny, strong characters.

Ananda: I don't know of anyone who could get sick of your happy anticipation! You are so close

Tara: I am looking forward to seeing Jonah Hill in "Cyrus" too. John C. Reilly is in it too! And, yes, that is current news...Russell Brand and Katy Perry.
Enjoy your mini week at work!!!

Secret: That sounds wonderful! Twelve days will pass before you know it :-)

Ian: That is just how I felt about Get Him to the Greek. It was what it should be!
Your blogs are cool...I especially chuckled at the homemade info graphics :-D

It sounds like a motionless weekend, but with plenty of movies involved. It seems like you're feeling better now (since you went to a Chinese restaurant and saw another movie).

Have fun with the short week and welcoming the Summer vacation season.

I've heard that movie was really funny.

I'm taking Friday and Monday off, so I'm looking forward to a 4 day weekend. I might also do a road race..I'm not sure if I'm looking forward to that or not.

AlienCG: I'm good now, thanks. I can usually vanquish my little ills with some good downtime.

Churlita: Hooray for 4 day weekends! And I suspect you are looking forward to that road least a little bit :-)
