September 7, 2013


It was awesome to get out to the movies yesterday with Shannon! It's always a fun way to spend a Friday. It was a treat to see The Mortal Instruments though I have to say that I loved the book much more. Still, there was Shannon - and popcorn!


Finally saw Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (oh wow, now I realized why they didn't amp up the subtitle) with Jamie! Had a great time at the movies, although I found the movie a bit clunky :( Still very shiny though. I'm not surprized there is a whole whack of clothing that's centred on the film (and I still love this tank top), it's cool to see runes in films, although I wish they actually talked about and how they work more.


My knife sharpening guy (who rocks!) returned my Santoku knife and also fixed Mom's poultry shears. We have a spy-like system of leaving "the package" in my mailbox. Man, think I have been watching Burn Notice but really, how could that be possible? So happy to have Mom's poultry shears in usable condition again. I tried everything but nothing worked. This is definitely one of those "stuff" things I could not let go of.

I love that you have a covert way of signaling the knife guy! I guess there is no more bell-ringing-down-the-street, eh? That's so cool you are getting those items sorted, I know it means a lot to you.

And YAY for Burn Notice influence...hehe.

Late add from me. Sleepy head today!

Isn't that fun Shannon?! I just never know when or if I am going to be home or napping... so Peter (the knife guy) suggested doing it this way and it works for me!

Oh man, I had a feeling that in comparison to the books you both might be a little let down. I didn't even know the name of the film, had no idea so many actors I liked were in it, it was all a big shiny surprise.

I do hope they talk more about runes in the next movie! So glad you got to go together, that is awesome.
