It is a mere 5 days before Denyse will be at the shop to teach her Improvisational Patchwork workshop and I couldn't be more excited.
I am taking the workshop so not only do I get to hang out with a bunch of very cool ladies and sew all day long, but I also have the day off!!!
That's two Saturdays in a row for me and I do believe that is some sort of personal record.
Ollie and I have been getting the house in ship-shape. The sun has been out the last 2 or 3 days which does wonders for your "get up and go."
We took a break Saturday night to watch "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."
First of all, let me say it is a very good movie.
Second of all, let me say it is a very long movie.
Third of all, let me say that I cried.
I must have had some pent up tears because the movie triggered about two hours worth of sniveling and sobbing and a LOT of tissues were needed for the nose situation.
Just when I thought it was all out of my system I would be hit with a wave of sobbing.
And I mean truly "Boo-Hoo-Hoo-ing."
Ollie rubbed my back and looked very confused.
I was just glad I wasn't in public.
Sometimes I think you just get tears stored up and they've gotta get out of you somehow.
If it takes a sad movie to trigger that kind of reaction then you are probably very lucky, indeed.
I think the last time I was triggered by a movie was a few boyfriends and many moons ago when I went to see "Life is Beautiful."
Only that time I WAS in public.
I had to keep it together until we got to the car at which point I let it rip and the tears kept coming and my then-boyfriend had a similar reaction to Ollie's: supportive, but confused.
Anyways, Mom saw me the next day and I told her I had seen "Benjamin Button" and for some reason she had it in her head that it was a comedy.
"Oh, was that funny?" she asked.
To cleanse the "Movie Palate" we watched M. Night Shyamalan's (or M. Night Shyamalan-a-ding-dong, as I like to call him) new movie, "The Happening."
Let me save you a couple of hours of your life and tell you the REAL title of this movie should be "The Boring-ing."
WHAT a let-down.
Not his best work.
And I was a BIG fan of "The Village," I'll have you know.
Next on the agenda: more prep for Denyse Day, a couple of days off, some time in Sprucehead and hopefully some new, good movies.
Any sure-fire suggestions?
Nothing that will make me snivel, though, please.
PS I have no idea what the situation is with the header of my blog but I assure you I am on top of this and it shall get better. Sometimes the computer and I we are not the bestest of BFF's.
