(Monday I'll begin the "cleaning up your manuscript" posts again. I figure we all need a break over the weekend.)
Last night GMR and I rented a couple of movies.
We picked "Knowing" to watch last night, and saved "The Soloist" for later. . . "Knowing" was interesting but there were holes in the story, some bad acting, and as well, they "cheated" -- what is "cheating?" - more on that later in the "cleaning up your manuscript" posts, but I know it when I see it. I'm not sure what I thought about this movie. There were a couple of scenes that were supposed to be dramatic and I burst out laughing and poked some fun --not good. The people on fire scene was most disturbing to me - I was afraid it'd bring back my horrific Fire Dreams, but luckily it did not.
But today I'm meeting some women friends to see Julie/Julia. Yes, I actually have a few women friends--although I rarely see them because I'm too reclusive - I do have a good excuse (lately anyway) - I need to complete the manuscript to Secret Graces and get it to my publishers!
I'm not sure what to expect with the movie, but I'm keeping an open mind. I wonder why Julia Child snubbed the author/blog/book. But, I suppose that kind of thing happens.
I'm going with Lauren, Christy, and Francis. We're all connnected through the Hart Theater. Lauren's husband plays drums in the orchestra/band, Christy and Francis are actors and singers, and as well Francis is directing "Walking Across Egypt"--GMR is in that play. Christy also has her own business called "Sugar Buzz," and she's a photographer (she took my author photo). Lauren and I were for a short time a part of "The Concierge Three..." They are fun and beautiful and I adore them.
Good Man Roger will stay home and miss me *haw* ... or maybe he'll kick back and say, "Ahhhhh...the house to myself....where's the bacon?" (since I do not eat pork or want it in my house! huhn.) I mean, look at the precious piggies!
What are your weekend plans? Seen any good movies recently - or rented any good movies? What do you recommend next time I am in Ingles Supermarket movie rentals?
Later gators! I'll be round to visit if I can today before I leave, but for sure tomorrow. I appreciate all of you stopping by, and my new Friends!
