Let’s see. Friday night I ended up leaving work two hours early and taking a nap in my truck. I got home about my usual time thanks to a call from D. When I got home I opted for some of the Safeway Autumn Harvest Butternut Squash Signature Soup since I was still feeling sick. On the other hand I seem to remember us watching the new Food Network Show Sugar Rush. We’ve been looking forward to this show ever since we heard it was going to be on. While I wasn’t impressed by the host, I think that is just because he’s new to being in front of the camera. Give him a year and I’ll like him just fine.
Saturday someone called at 10:30 but I didn’t recognize the number so I didn’t answer. I watched some FoodTV, including watching the Scary lady do her chocolate 2 show. I found it interesting that, in addition to the fondue she had for dessert, she also had a Chocolate Fountain which she kept saying was inexpensive to rent. Now granted Ekitchengadgets has a small one for about $70, but the one she had on her show rents for about $400 plus chocolate. Considering that she was doing a dinner for two, which puts it out of most people’s budgets. Heck, it’s more than the house would pay if we were throwing a party!
When LLT came home from work we worked on the house a little bit and then I ended up taking a nap. I finished out the afternoon watching the original A Nightmare on Elm Street which was Johnny Depp’s first movie and then A New Nightmare. Then we went over to see Ash for dinner. We got home and pretty much crashed. Yes – I lead an exciting life.
Sunday we got up and made blueberry pancakes. I spent a little time winding bobbins for my class then LLT and I went to Walmart and Safeway. Don’t ask, the trip was a two plus hour nightmare. Then I spent some more time winding bobbins (since you ask there are 160 bobbins to wind and I’m slightly more than half done – plus I really want to work up a sample which means another 32 bobbins and some lace making). We watched Blade: Trinity (what are they going to call Blade 4? Quadrology?) It was meh…I’ve now seen all three and while it has not gone the way of The Crow, I’m not sure there is any more life in the series. I was slightly amused to note that for a sword and vampire movie, he didn’t pull his sword out until the last fight of the movie. I did have fun making snarky comments about 7th Heaven meets Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Those who are confused, meet Jessica Biel.
Because there was less than nothing on while we were eating frederich’s wonderful Sticky Rice, we ended up watching Dreamcatcher. While I’m not quite ready to ask for my two hours back, I was left unsatisfied. I am kinda interested in reading the the book which is by Stephen King. I was the only one in the house who had not seen it, and apparently it's better on DVD. We saw it on basic cable which means it was cut for blood and language.
