Hello, Wonderful People!
Thank you for all your lovely notes. You warm me :)
Birthday was good—I suppose after you survive the trauma of turning 30, you're okay until 40. Hmm, okay, 39 might be a crap one, since you'll feel like you're staring at 40. But thank goodness there's still a long time to that.
Katja got here safe and sound and we've been doing a lot of browsing in various stores (not a lot of worthwhile things out there to buy right now, what's with
that?), watching lots of popcorn TV, and we managed to make it to see Stardust
as well. Katja liked it, and I might have if I hadn't read the book and the movie didn't have Claire Danes. As it was, I was lukewarm on it. Book A-
; Movie B-
. Maybe rent it when it comes out on DVD.
This coming week we're going to watch the whole Ugly Betty
first season DVD, eat more ice cream, do more shopping, finish trying to highlight my hair back to blonde, etc. Girly stuff. Then, we'll do a few days in New York, including a visit to see the gorilla habitat at the Bronx Zoo. Also trying to get a room at the Jersey shore for Labor Day Weekend.
Oh, I'm out of reading (or rather I don't feel like reading the 10 books I have lined up). Any fiction or sci-fi/fantasy recommendations? Movie recommendations?
