I did manage to get out on Friday night and get to the movies. Destry got back to me almost last minute and picked me up. His newest, I would guess 25 year old, girlfriend came along as well. We were aiming to see The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo but it sold out on it's only showing for the night while we stood in line! HUGE BUMMER! So, we regrouped and went to see Kick Ass instead which was delightfully politically incorrect. I still want to see The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo...just have to figure out when and how.
Destry's girlfriend actually talked to me which was nice. She is very mid-20s in her personality and all though...and that was amusing a little. It was nice to not be ignored like I was someone who would just go away if the woman ignored me enough. I never did catch her name though...which is a bit odd. I actually got a compliment, out of the blue, from Destry where he stated I had "Great taste in music" when we were talking about music snobs. That felt good and struck me because it has been ages since I had a friend compliment me so out of the blue. So, it wasn't an awkward meet-up at all and the movie was quite enjoyable even if it wasn't the one I really wanted to see.
I am glad Destry's girlfriend was over-ruled when she pushed to see Hot Tub Time Machine because there would have been no way in hell I wasted money on that crap movie. Destry wanted to see Kick Ass and I backed him on that....the girlfriend was not opposed so that is what we went to see.
Now to figure out how to get to see The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo...
My photoshoot this weekend got rearranged and will be happening this Friday instead. I am actually glad of this because I screwed up the days and thought it was yesterday, gave the model a heart attack saying I was on my way, and remembered halfway there it was sceduled for today. So, we both agreed that Friday would be better. More time to prepare and get done with the second edit of the last photoshoot.
Since I was out and about yesterday, having started my bus travel to downtown before remembering that the shoot wasn't Saturday...I got off the bus and went to Borders Books and bought a few books to read. I have discovered the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs which is a werewolf series (the main character is "skin walker" who phases into a coyote but was raised by werewolves) that is set in eastern Washington. In Tri-Cities actually! It is as good as the Sookie Stackhouse series and it was amusing to read of places I actually have been frequently, like Coeur d' Alene and Pasco, and Spokane is even mentioned. I have just read Moon Called and now want to read all the other books (all 4 of them) in the series. They are fun, have humor, and Briggs' writing style actually held my attention from beginning to end. Definitely worth a read.
Russell and my dad will be back home tomorrow afternoon after a week in Davis, California. It will become stressful and noisy here at home again. :| Russell was stupid and didn't put on sunblock when they attended the Oakland A's baseball game and now has a horrid sunburn on his arms. To the point where his hands are puffy and cracking. *Shakes head* Sunblock...have to use it.
Anyway, I am off now to finish up online and get reading. I am in an "not feeling like being on the computer and wanting to read" mood.
