Eek!

Ok, so I have been bad and missed a few days of the blog challenge. We had a busy weekend.... we attended a wedding, it was our two year anniversary, and various family members had birthdays in addition to me cleaning the heck out of the house and hanging some art/shelving. I also worked on *our* wedding invites and am about half done - my goal is to have them out by the end of next week (crossing my fingers).

The wedding we went to over the weekend was probably the most depressing party I have ever attended. They originally cancelled the wedding, then put it back on a few weeks later. They lost their church, so it was supposed to be in a park and then was moved into their reception venue. I won't get into too much detail but Matt, his sister, her best friend and myself all ended up drinking wine in plastic cups in the parking lot.

I finally hung the shelves in my crafting room today! Things are gradually coming together. It's hard to get things done with a wee baby and terrible gas prices prohibiting the purchase of anything non-essential at the moment. Gas is $1.35 a litre here (over $5 a gallon for all you Americans). I put $12 in my tank the other day before driving to my mom's house and when I got back the gas light was on again! arg.

So anyways, Tuesday's challenge is to review something. I haven't really seen any new movies lately other than Sex and the City, but I did rent this one a few weeks ago. It came out in 2005 - I found it in the indie comedy section of my movie store and quite enjoyed it.



I've liked Evan Rachel Wood ever since seeing Thirteen, and even moreso after Across the Universe. Here is the plotline from wikipedia:

Kimberly Joyce (Evan Rachel Wood) is a high school student at Roxbury, a Beverly Hills school for the wealthy. She and her best friend Brittany (Elisabeth Harnois) take Randa (Adi Schnall), a new student from the Middle East, under their wing. When Kimberly decides to accuse her drama teacher (Ron Livingston) of sexual harassment, she draws everyone - including her friends, family and the media (a reporter played by Jane Krakowski) - into her manipulative plot.

This movie is smart, sassy, and funny whilst being very dark. The storyline is not something you typically would see, and although the main character is a pretty bad person I couldn't help but be interested in her. Oh, and I <3 Ron Livingston. So - rent this one! It's old so it's in the cheapo section lol.

I'm going to finish up this post w/ some gratuitous cuteness.



This little man was 8 weeks old yesterday! Time is flying..
