Bullet points!

  • Forgot to mention that I got to chat with [ profile] austin360 during Alias the other night. We spoke a few times, giggling girlishly all the while, much to S's bemusement. Last night he said, "So are you going to do that every time we watch Alias?" I said (snippily), "Maybe." He said, "So long as it's just during commercials." Hee.

    My friend J and I used to talk during West Wing episodes. While the show was on, we would just sit there with the phones, silently watching, occasionally making a quick comment. And that's one of the least dorky things we've ever done.

  • In the Shadow of Two Gunmen was on the WW marathon the other night. I still watch that every time I see it. It still gives me chills. Literally, chills. God, that was good stuff.

  • For my fellow Alan Rickmanistas: Have you seen yet that Alan will be doing the voice of Marvin the Paranoid Android in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy? [ profile] pookha and I have already spent a bit of time squeeeeeee-ing over that. So exciting!

  • My dad turns the big 5-0 on Sunday. We are taking my parents out for Japanese food, which should be fun. S and I are getting him a new pair of black Converse for one of his presents. Hee. I love having a dad who will love Converse as a present.

    Hope everyone has a wunderbar weekend!

    I can't wean myself from the bullet points.

  • First things first: Tomorrow is Towel Day. At least carry a mental towel around with you, and remember fondly that hoopiest frood of them all, Douglas Adams.

  • The weekend was good. S's grandparents flew into town for his youngest brother's graduation, and they (gparents) spent the weekend spoiling us at our favorite restaurants, and generally kissing us to pieces and praising us to the skies. I really love his grandparents, almost as much as I love my own. I have wonderful grandparents, but the Snippet's grandparents are, like, the most grandparent-y grandparents I've ever been around. They think I am the greatest thing ever to happen to the Snippet.

    His grandpa is the cutest thing ever; he actually has a twinkle in his eye, and he is always teasing S's grandma: "Hey there, pretty little thing. Do I know you? I'd sure like to." It is totally adorable. They've been married 50 years next month.

  • The Snippet was sunburned so badly on his shoulders that it's turned into blisters. It is, quite frankly, really gross to look at. Ask me why I felt the need to share that.

  • I read George Burns's biography about his wife, Gracie Allen. It is a very sweet book; I read it ages ago, when I was a teenager, and I loved it. It's even better now for some reason. I also finally--FINALLY--found a copy of Paul Wellstone's 'The Conscience of a Liberal.' Huzzah! I can't wait to start it.

  • I found old copies of 'Bridge to Terabithia,' 'Mrs Frisby and the Rats of Nimh,' 'Jacob Have I Loved,' 'The Egypt Game,' and 'Five Little Peppers Midway.' Motherlode!

  • I have decided that Heaven is filled with books and comfy chairs to read in.

  • Nothing on the job front. Won't someone pay me to stay at home? I love it, and I'm really, really good at it. Supervisor material, even.
