Hello, hello, and happy Sunday dear readers! Thank you for stopping by for a chat and a cup of delicious brew. I’m already on my second cup of the day. I have been slowly switching over to tea in the mornings but Sundays are for coffee and always will be.
I feel a little tired today but the gorgeous weather we’ve been having is helping keep me happy and motivated. The sun is shining bright this morning and I’ve already got the windows open to feel the breeze through the house. Spring is definitely here.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that the biggest thing that happened this past week was the Interview with a Vampire themed dinner I attended at my favorite theater ever, the Alamo Drafthouse. We had alligator chicken gumbo, BBQ shrimp, crawfish, and the best bread pudding I have ever had in my life. The alligator and crawfish I didn’t care for but the shrimp were huge and smothered in a ridiculous amount of butter. YUM!
This theater is slowly turning me into a huge movie enthusiast. I mean everyone loves movies but I am adding so many to my favorites and rediscovering old ones with intense interest. Doing things like pairing the movie with foods and showing shorts and commercials that relate to the film beforehand, having staff speak to the audience and inviting guests, all these things add a whole other dimension that helps view the film as a piece of art rather than pure entertainment. Just bought tickets to Scott Pilgrim vs the World with a live band in a few weeks
And just this morning I bought tickets to Scott Pilgrim vs the World with a live band in a few weeks :)
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I finish To Kill a Mockingbird this week and I am still in awe of Ms. Harper Lee’s talent. I read the book in less than a week, I couldn’t put the damned thing down for anything I loved it so much! I seriously almost cried at least three times. This book has instantly become one of my favorites and I can already tell I will be rereading it again very soon. I had read the
I had read the reviews on Goodreads before I started it and was surprised to find that so many people hated it. I went into it thinking it was not going to be as good as I thought but I was honestly blown away!
After I finished it and took a minute to mourn it’s ending I picked up Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein after and since I am one of those readers that has to read the introductions and preface so I have a little ways to go before I get into the actual story.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that very soon I will be an auntie again. I may have mentioned it before but I can’t remember so forgive me if I have and pretend I haven’t. My baby brother and his girlfriend are expecting their first child and they announced yesterday that it will be a baby girl! I’m glad I didn’t place any bets, I was sure it was going to be a boy.
Whenever someone I know is expecting I start questioning my feelings about having children. I like kids and I very much enjoy being an aunt but I can’t help but wonder if I might enjoy having one or two of my own. Then again all the crying and body fluids do not sound like fun at all. All the parents I know seem exhausted and stressed. I like my quiet time and I just don’t know if I would make a good mom….We’ll continue that conversation in another post on another day.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I had better get going. My girlfriend has decided to start spring cleaning without me and it’s making me feel bad, not to mention seeing her putting things in trash bags is making me a little nervous. Plus we are visiting family today and I have to start getting ready for that too.
I really hope you had a good week. Please, update me on your comings and goings and all you’ve been up to in the comments then go and enjoy what is left of the weekend. Monday will be here before we know it….*sigh*
