It's supposed to rain this weekend. Feeling a bit like Eeyore at the moment. lol. It'll pass. Got Monte Pittman's The Deepest Dark
album in the mail last night when I got home, so I'm looking forward to hearing it!
Thursday night I almost got in a car accident, but thankfully nothing happened. Someone in the lane to the right of me put on their blinker to come left, but there wasn't room for them to come over so I sped up to get out of their way - almost instantly they started coming over, but managed to stop in time. It felt so freaking close I'm amazed we didn't hit. WHEW.
Last night, Heather and I met at Olive Garden for dinner. We wanted popcorn with the movie, so we just had appetizers for dinner which worked out really well. I tried their new mozzarella fondue thing and it was delicious!! She had calamari, mushrooms and ravioli, and then we shared the Black Tie cheesecake. OMG, GOOD!
Normally we both tend to avoid opening night for movies, but we couldn't resist Secretariat. It wasn't too crazy all things considered. We got there super early anyway. It's kind of nice that they run the previews for shows and stuff - it's a much nicer way to kill 30 minutes rather than watching the same five slides over and over again. *G* We want to see Tangled and...the runaway train movie. Looks intensely suspenseful but awesome. Anyway, Secretariat was really wonderful. You never know how horse movies are going to turn out, but they did a fabulous job with it and it was very entertaining. It's on my 'to buy' list when it comes out.
Ebert did an excellent review of it - going to copy and paste because I worry about sites deleting stuff. lol. ( Read more... )
