January 30, 2012


We went to Cora's to celebrate Mom's birthday. Clearly a wonderful time was had by all!


Weekend Watching: Real Steel (already out) & 2-Headed Shark Attack (out on DVD Tuesday). Also caught up with The Viral Factor in the theatre & Moon Point which is out next Friday - really fun, quirky Canadian comedy. Great set of films! Really lucked out this weekend.

Rinsing Egg Shell

I had an unexpected day yesterday. I thought we were going out. Then we were staying home so I started investigating eggshell pendants thanks to this video. Here I am rinsing out the egg shell getting it ready to simmer on the stove. Then the phone rang and we had to dash out of the house which brought on a migraine. Perhaps I am not the most spontaneous person in the world?

It was so great to hang out yesterday, Shannon! And I'm curious; how was Real Steel?

Suzie Ridler said...

Oh I am envious you all went to Cora's for Mom's birthday! Clearly it was a fantastic day out and thank you so much for sharing the photo.

Shannon, I can't believe Real Steel is already out? Yes, how was it?

That's a lot of switching gears, Suzie! I'm so curious about the eggshell. I love the pic. There seems to be some magic there :)

Shannon the Movie Moxie said...

It was so much fun to hang out for Mom's bday and it I too wish you could have been there Suzie!! And I think you actually are quite spontanious to take off amid egg-washing to follow other plans!

Real Steel came out last week - hope to have it reviewed very soon. I liked it, although it's odd to see Hugh Jackman as not 100% "nice guy!", but he's a good enough actor to pull that off and more. Real human emotional drama relationship story with lots of realness in it, among all the .. ya know.. robot boxing....

Suzie Ridler said...

Oh I hope so Jamie! That is what I was going for.

Thanks Shannon, I guess I was spontaneous, wasn't I?

I wondered if Hugh was a tad unlikeable in that movie. Realness among the robots... I love it!
