Amidst errands yesterday, we stopped at the Christopher A. Parr Library in Plano. Their children's room is absolutely stunning and Laurel barely looked around before settling next to the Spanish-language children's books for half an hour. I briefly entertained the thought of finding an MLS program so I could become a children's librarian. (Fear not, I know I really just want to smell paper. I should pick up paper making to indulge that.) Off their new card information page: "Because of our reciprocal borrowing agreement, you can also use your card at Allen Public Library. because of our reciprocal borrowing agreement." *laughs*

I watched Y tu mamá también Friday night. The cinematography was gorgeous and the whole movie had that slightly self-conscious sense of absurdity that I absolutely adore in Almodóvar films. The short film in the bonus features, Lo me debes, was icing on the cake for renting the unrated version of the movie. It's been added to my to-buy list. We watched Jersey Girl last night. It was sweet, but not worth buying. George Carlin impressed as always and Liv Tyler was fine as long as we didn't have to look at her in a sweater. (She desperately needed a bra in the scene outside the video store.) Fellow Mr. Rogers fans should note that Betty Aberlin plays the teacher -- not a major role, but it was gratifying to IMDb later and confirm my guess. We started watching CHO Revolution afterward, but I fell asleep partway in (I was that tired) so we've put it off until later today.

Catching up on LJ today, I saw a new member of littletits -- by new, I mean they've never posted there and it was the first time I've seen them comment -- get their panties in a wad and sling the word "pedophile" several times to describe another member that said they liked women in the 18-22 age range. When I called them on the incorrect usage, they claimed sarcasm. Maybe I'll understand their incomplete sentences and dazzling logic after "I have double masters moron".

We have leftover beef stroganoff that was so good Vogon had it again for breakfast today to see if it was as good as he'd thought, a pitcher of sangria and several citrus fruits awaiting a hanging produce basket after yesterday's grocery orgy shopping trip. I'm thinking about making banana pudding from scratch tomorrow since they were on sale for 29c/pound and we have enough frozen bananas (whole or just the fruit, as two mashed bananas nicely fill a snack-size ziplock bag) for several batches of banana bread.

I'll be scarce online this upcoming week; he's taking vacation time and I have no idea what he has in mind, but I need to get some sewing projects done and this week's FlyLady zone will keep me plenty busy since I barely touched it last month and I really need to scrub around the bathtubs in both bathrooms. (We use the separate shower in the master bathroom and I didn't get to the tub when I deep-cleaned the second bathroom recently.)

heh, the library was fluent on the department of redundant repeats.

sounds like that person you were talking ...no, it was them going off and being mad and trying to be an authority on things, and demanding respect they've not earned yet. that's why i'm avoiding a few places my own self, too many like that.

food sounds goooooood...i keep trying to remind myself not to eat at all, cause it's food that hurts, but i'm weak. i'm not an avacado pit, i do need food. *pout* not just sticking my roots/toes in the water.

The community itself rarely has members go off like that, so I chalked it up to someone joining without reading the userinfo or recent posts. Bah. At least this one didn't run off to LJ Abuse and complain that they were offended, as somone did this summer. I did learn a new word from the experience: ephebophile, an adult attracted to adolescents.

Vogon's copy of Joy of Cooking didn't have a banana pudding recipe, so I looked a few up online. I think I'll try making it tonight since the midget went to bed early.

*hugs* i'm glad you've not met many jerks online. :) i've met a few, and truly hated it. a lot.

gael garcia bernal is SO hot in y tu mama tambien. and his friend diego luna is pretty hot, too.

I agree. I need to find someone else to watch it with, though -- Vogon wasn't too interested in it, especially after I told him later there was a scene where Tenoch and Julio kiss. (I didn't think it was that bad, but I purposely rent unrated versions of movies when I have the choice.)

You should go read it now. that chick is still there, and she's freaky. haha

ANd I was talking about someone's giiiiinormus B cup porn star boobs, and she freaked out. Again. haha

...send me screencaps of "My It's Cold Out Here" Liv Tylor?

I went back and skimmed the comment threads there again. Her ability to shoot from the hip is stunning (like a blow to the head).

You confused her by not putting my username in the LJ user tag. Way to go. (:

I would, but we returned it this morning before I read your comment. It wasn't so much that it was too cold, but a combination of cold setting and really needing some more support. My chest ached for the lack of support she had in that scene.
Oct. 11th, 2004 11:23 am (UTC)
yeah, and she couldn't believe "ginormous" and "b cup" at one point. haha.
Twit. :D
She hasn't continued today, yet. So... yah.

What's new?

Vogon cleaned the bathtub yesterday, which was very kind of him. I still need to clean the tub in the other bathroom, but it's not a big deal since we don't use that one.

The mini-trip to the beach is still up in the air. I'm trying not to get too excited over it.

oooo! i wanna goooooo@!

We'll probably have returned by the time she reads this, but I have already scouted out a hotel and the weather (it's going to rain tomorrow morning, so we'll probably leave tomorrow -- it's a 5-6 hour drive, since it's on the other side of the state from us).
Oct. 13th, 2004 08:14 am (UTC)
you crazy kids, I tell ya.
Have fun, and take pics.

(From the hotel lobby)

It's amazingly beautiful down here... The weather has been a bit windy, but otherwise absolutely perfect (temp in the mid-80's), the water warm, the surf high and pleasant sounding, and the seafood (which I normally won't touch anywhere else!) is among the most amazingly excellent things to eat.

I'll let oddharmonic tell you about the interesting things that have happened. Always expect the unexpected, as they say.

(from his cold Michigan room where it's about 40farenheit outside)
I hate you both. :D
