We finally hit the beach this weekend! Just a quick trip to our fave beach with plans to hangout, soak up some sun, read a little and then hit our fave Mexican restaurant on the way home.
We did all that, but it actually rained on us while at the beach. It was sunny and perfect and then the clouds blew in. It wasn’t a hard rain and man, we sure needed it but it got too cold for The Girl so we packed it up and headed out.
We are all trying to make the most of this weekend as this is the beginning of production week for Grease. All week long, The Girl has extended rehearsals and lots of last minute work to do before the show starts on Friday. We get to see the show Saturday night. We can’t wait.
I’d like to thank all of you for voting for me in that Murkami contest. The contest isn’t over but I can’t complete with click farms and cheaters so I’ve stopped promoting it. I really want that signed Murkami book but I am not going to resort to cheating to win it. I am all grouchy about it. I hate cheaters.
What am I reading?
I started The Martian this past week. Too many mathematical equations in the beginning almost turned me away from it for good. I am liking it more now, but still kind of wondering about all of the hype.
I finished The Regulators. What a strange story. It’s King though so I shouldn’t be surprised. I liked it, but it surprised me a little with where it went.
What am I cooking?
After all of the snacks and Mexican food we enjoyed yesterday, we are keeping it simple tonight with some grilled chicken and salad.
What am I watching?
I watched the first episode of The Strain and boy, they weren’t kidding when they said it was graphic. I am liking it so far, much more than Under the Dome which bombed for me.
I didn’t really get to see any movies this weekend besides Better Off Dead. Long live 80s movies. Remember that one? Silly, but fun.
I had to rush through this post because my wireless access has crashed THREE times while writing it and I’ve lost about three versions of it already so if it seems a little abbreviated, that’s why.
What have YOU been up to this weekend?
