Ah yes, it seems Minion is not the only character in this house. Fattycat's latest thing is to
I only worked part of the day today. They're trying to limit the amount of overtime they pay, and since my lines were down and I have eight hours holiday pay from the 4th of July, I was able to leave at noon today. There was a price to pay though. My movie addicted boss had brought two of his favorites along and said I had to watch him if he was going to let me go early. I was particularly interested in either one but what the heck, I sat down and watched them both with hubby.
So what were they, you ask? Limitless, and The Devil Wears Prada. Yes, I have finally seen The Devil Wears Prada. I enjoyed it. I might have even cried a couple times. Limitless, on the other hand, was boring to me. I did manage to watch the whole thing but it was a rather blah event. I'm not a big fan of Bradley Cooper. And trying to keep track of who was working for who and who was after who and who had what was a little more than I cared to keep straight.
Several days ago we watched The Awakening. Oh my gosh, that is my current favorite movie! It is a ghost story, but it's not huge on the creepy or scare factor. It's a thinker's movie and I loved it. The ending!!!! Hubby and I were immediately discussing it, and then thinking back through the whole movie. I even went online to look it up and found that it's supposed to be that way, left in such a way that the viewer must decide. And it was so cleverly done! If you haven't seen it, find it and watch it right now. I want to discuss it endlessly with someone! And I think I'm going to order that one on DVD.
We also recently watched The Hollow, which is an older one with Kaley Cuoco, a Sleepy Hollow related story. It sucked. Holy ballz did it suck! Crap acting, crap story, almost seemed like a cheesy TV movie. And we watched Regression, with Emma Watson, about a girl who accuses her father of raping her. That one was rather disappointing because the story got to be a little over the top. If it would have stayed a little more basic, it might have been a good movie. And Emma needs to work on her sobbing.
Well tomorrow is surgery day. It feels a little weird at this point, not being part of it this time. I'm hoping my brother or sister-in-law calls me to update afterwards, but I'm also doubting that will happen. If you call a hospital and ask for a patient's room number and phone number to that room, will they give it? I keep running all these things through my mind, like 'Hope she doesn't forget [this or that],' and then have to remind myself I don't need to worry about it. They'll manage without this over-thinking control freak hovering.
On that note, I will go try to get a couple little things done before I head up to bed to read. Prayers and positive thoughts are welcome and greatly appreciated!
