In the fifties, "rest" meant "sex".
I was going to do quite a different post today, but after trying three different times and having Blogger eff everything up royally each time, I finally threw in the proverbial towel and decided to just write something.
Tomorrow is "my Friday" (Sunday for everyone else). Up at 5-freakin-thirty-AY-EM... again. I love my job, I really do, but SERIOUSLY? On a SUNDAY? Waaaaaaah! Don't mind me, just seriously PMS-ing over here, feeling like an elephant used my midsection for a trampoline. Gah. Blech. Whinge. Moan.
Good thing it's so warm this weekend... with all the rain we're getting, it would've been twelve feet of snow if it was cold! I'm pulling for another "tropical winter" like we had last year, where I didn't have to pay anyone all winter to clear our driveway.
We defrocked the Yule tree today. Bear got a head start on things while I was at work, and I jumped into the fray when I got home. All the lights and ornaments are tucked away in their boxes up in the attic, waiting for next year. The tree, however, is still green and springy - and it's raining outside - and dark - and we were both so pooped after all that running up and down stairs and ladders. We decided to leave the tree up in the stand for just a wee while longer. It's so beautiful, and honestly we're such complete geeks that neither one of us would be able to sleep knowing that our lovely, still-green tree was lying out in the gutter. It will have to go soon, because it's standing in front of the decorated windows, but not tonight. One more night of glory.
Last night we watched "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter". And I liked it much more than I expected to. The way it was written and filmed reminded me a lot of the recent Sherlock Holmes movies, which I totally LOVE. Weirdest part was the dude playing Abe Lincoln looked eerily like a young Liam Neeson. So much so that I swore he must be his son, or close relative. Googled it, and was gobsmacked to find out he's absolutely not related. Egads, he looks SO much like him! Also weirdly, the guy that plays his friend in the movie looks a whole lot like Robert Downey, Jr. (who was in the Sherlock Holmes movies). Bizarre likenesses.
The vampire bits made me jump right out of my seat. Not that you saw the vampires' bits... that's not what I meant, no... I just meant the bits of the movie where the vampires attack. Completely unnerving. Startling. Scream-inducing, even (if you're a complete pussy). Except for the one played by Rufus Sewell, because, well, he's so handsome that if he flew at a girl with his mouth open she'd just think she won the cosmic romance lottery and Bob's your uncle.
I was going to write all about how we recently watched the animated movies "Brave" and "How to Train Your Dragon" and how much we loved them both, but it's 11:30PM(S) and... you know... 5:30AM is just a few hours away.
