So yeah, I wanted to write about the movie because I wrote about the previous one or two back in the day, but I got nothing. It was good, but probably not as enjoyable as the first two. The part that most stuck out for me, and I feel like maybe it's a story I've heard before, is when this Greek woman at dinner describes the difference between the masculine and the feminine by telling a story from her mother who is a nurse who deals with patients just coming out of a coma. And her mom says that the first thing every female does upon coming out of a coma is ask about her family whereas the first thing a man does is look down at his penis to make sure it's ok. Priorities. I probably enjoyed it more in the film because I enjoyed the Greek and other European accents.
Since I don't have much to say about the movie, but I actually have time to type...I will write about this past weekend. My parents took the kids so that Eric and I could go to Ludington, but Ludington was pretty well booked by the time we looked into it, so we pretty much had a staycation (to use a these-days word I kind of loathe). We started at Gun Lake Casino where I spent my $10 birthday "gift" from the casino on espresso shots and cookies and then lost $60 to the slot machines quite rapidly while Eric guzzled Guinness at 9:30 am. From there we hit up the Downtown Market, which I've been wanting to visit forever but never seem to make it to. We got vegan pizza at Rocket Pies (yum!), my birthday scoop and another of vegan ice cream at Love's (amaretto cherry for me, blueberry lavender for Eric), and a bag of kettle corn (soooo good!). Then we headed home and rented videos that we haven't been able to get forever due to a dead dvd player, but E got me a blu-ray machine for my birthday, so Trainwreck, Sex Tape, and Before Midnight came home with us. We went to dinner at Soup Spoon Cafe and then came home and drank a delicious sparkling wine from Trader Joe's while watching Trainwreck. Oh yeah, we went to Trader Joe's while in GR as well. And I'm drinking again these days(some); it's nice, and I foresee myself being a regular ol' boozaholic before long (probably not really, as I imagine the fear will always kind of be there). And we played some games, which was also nice. Then Sunday we mowed the lawn (Eric), cleaned the kitchen (me), cleaned our bedroom (me), did laundry (me), and then went out to an early, and incredibly delicious, dinner at San Marcos in Hastings with my parents and the girls. The weekend wasn't long enough, but it was really good. We slept til 10 on Sunday. Bliss! But now back to the grind.
