I had a decent weekend. Slept in on Sunday and felt rested for the first time in a long time. Saturday was a birthday party for my dad who is very, very old (60) and very, very cool. Friday night Becky and I went to see the new Harold and Kumar movie with her 21-year-old sister and her boyfriend. That was fun and I liked the second movie better than the first. Sunday I spent some time sanding down the walls in our new house where there are all sorts of weird lumps and splotches on the dry wall. At night Becky and I went to see FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL. Great movie and Kristen Bell is hot.
Becky is always an interesting case to me when we go to see movies. You know me, my emotions are all over the place. I LOVE movies or I DESPISE movies and I’m eager to tell people why either way. Becky never likes anything. She’ll laugh through the whole movie and when I ask her if she liked it she’ll say “not really” or something like that. I know I shouldn’t tie my enjoyment of a movie to hers but it still bugs me sometimes. On the other hand, when there is a movie she really likes, like JUNO, it seems more special.
And I don’t care who thinks I’m a dork, I can’t WAIT to see WALL-E the new Pixar movie.
I also made some minor headway with a short story I’m working on. I have this wonderful ambitious idea and until recently no freaking clue how to pull it off. Now I have a clue…sort of.
