this weekend didnt really turn out the way anyone expected, but dang if it wasnt good. friday the girls and i ate dinner on the floor in the kitchen out of my bowl. do you find that your kids will eat just about anything if it is coming from your plate? mine do. espescially if you are sitting on the floor. i have no answers for this. after the communal dinner we packed it up and went to the park to stroll around. loose park is my favorite park in the city. i wish i would have had my camera friday so i could show you some pictures. i saw a mama duck with about twelve brown fuzzy ducklings people! i nearly fell over. then i called david on the cell phone and asked him for the millionth time if i could order a camera. not yet. grr. such a smart man.
anyway, so after the park the girls went to bed and i simultaneously watched a sappy movie on tv and organized my flickr photos. after that i spent some sorely needed time with my tweezers, file and razor in the bathroom. wow. time well spent i would say. david and eliot's camping trip was cut a day short because this weekend of all weekends was some horse ride benefit and after spending most of the evening and night listening to trailers rumble into the campgrounds, he thought it best not to go for night two. they did have fun though, smores and hiking and all that. plus we managed to work the change of plans to our benefit. sent eliot to "camp" in the backyard of a friends house, got a sitter for the girls and went out for a night on the town to celebrate a friends birthday. you know, i havent had to be social (laugh, tell stories and joke around) with new people in a long long time. i thought i might be a little rusty, but after some italian food in my belly and the promise of ice cream to come, i settled right in. too bad i didnt get a chance to tell any of my nightmare hillbillie stories, those always get people going. plus i love to use as many accents as possible while telling stories. thank goodness my mother is colombian.
i also wanted to tell you that i saw the funniest movie ever saturday night. hot fuzz. oh my gosh. i think you will agree with me too if you find most of the following statements to be true:
1. you love simon pegg
2. you have seen the bbc show "spaced"
3. you have seen shaun of the dead
4. you liked #2 and #3 above
5. you have a general love for all things british
6. including british humor
if you agree with 50% of the above statements, then hot fuzz is a movie for you. so frickin' funny.
