Great weekend

Had a wonderful weekend with my hubby. He did have to work Friday night and Saturday but to my surprise he finished work early on Saturday and got home at 4pm. We decided we needed to have a date night, just us, since we haven’t been out like that in a while. We went to see The Men Who Stare at Goats and then went out for dinner together. Then we arrived home just after 9pm and watched Inglorious Basterds together all cuddled up on the couch. Sunday he had the whole day off, so we had a lovely pancake breafast together, cuddled on the couch again watching the rest of season 1 of Six Feet Under. Then we took the dog to the dog park for an hour to enjoy the beautiful fall. I sat on the picnic table and watched Mr. Oliver run offleash to his hearts content. Then we came home and started working on some food to freeze for the post partum period. We cooked up a storm together. We made 4 lovely ham, broccolie, swiss chard, sundried tomato and cheddar quiches, a large sheppards pie and then pork and veggie fried rice for last nights dinner. We are going to try and load up the deep freeze with enough food to last at least 3 weeks of dinners. Then we cuddled down and watch a movie called Drillbit Taylor a co-worker of his highly recomended, Anyways it was simple relaxing but perfect weekend and I really got a chance to reconnect heart to heart with my husband which we haven’t had alot of time to do lately.

Now is time for the movie reviews:

I LOVED The Men Who Stare at Goats– I think it is hillarious and smart, but I can also understand why so many think it dumb and not funny. It’s spoof satire, it’s dry but smart humour. It’s co-produced with BBC films, so it’s that type of "either you like it or you don’t" humour. I do like it, and would love to watch it again, It didn’t hurt that like all my favorite male actors are in it together.

Sadly, I did not enjoy Inglorious Basterds at all. In fact it’s the first and only Tarentino flick I didn’t like so I am really dissapointed. I thought the story line was brilliant, the message was great, and I like how typical of Tarentino, there were 3 story lines happening simultaneously, but the movie itself was slow moving and boring. I really thought I would love this movie so I am shocked to hear myself saying that.

Drillbit Taylor also sucked. It was your typical teen geeks versus bully, high school drama crap movie. Oh well.

Now I just have to mention that I am completly in love with Six Feet Under. It has me wrapped around it’s little finger. I just finished season 1 and I loved every moment of it, what a great show. I love love love Michael C. Hall as an actor, since I have watched all of Dexter to date and this show just reinforces what a great actor he is. I also think that Lauren Ambrose is way stunning.

  1. Oh man, I loved SFU. And inglorious basterds, but you knew that πŸ˜€

    • I loved the story of IB, I thought it was a brilliant concept and loved the meaning behind it, and I always love to watch assholes go down in flames..I just couldn’t get into the movie. Boo.
      Now SFU I am hooked. Halfway through season 3 now.

  2. I Agree….I thought Bastards was boring as well. I appreciated what he was doing and the skills he has mastered as a director of strange and twisted story lines but I thought it was boring. Just didn’t hold my interest as much as I thought it would.

  3. oh man, i hate inglorious basterds too. augh. it was so boring, i found myself wishing it was over about 1/2 way through… a couple times. lol.

  4. Sounds like a lovely weekend!
    My husband and I were obsessed with Six Feet Under back in the day. We watched it obsessively right through to the end. I’ll be interested to hear what you think… I loved the first season, but found it all got to be a bit much by the end (which didn’t stop us from watching multiple episodes every night!)
