I’m heading towards the last day of my four day weekend. Why do I always wait until Sunday night to write my blog? At least I can take my time and not worry about going to sleep because I have work in the morning…

the pattern
this pattern actually features all of my fellas!

I actually waited two months before posting a pic of Sullivan Stapleton and now it’s my most liked IG post of the year. Somehow I must keep my Sully posting at the minimum otherwise he’ll be my best nine of 2020. Not that I mind. I love how much love my Sully posts get because it means people who love Sully find my posts. It’s a wonderful thing.

MOVIES

Sonic the Hedgehog – T-Mobile Tuesday offered up a $4 movie ticket for this one so I took advantage. I chose the first show on Valentine’s Day in the Dolby Cinema auditorium because I love watching movies in that one and those tickets are pricey. Instead of paying $12.99 (goodness, is that the matinee price for that auditorium?!), I paid a mere $4. BARGAIN, I tell ya! Anyhoo, I was open to seeing the movie but I had absolutely no expectations on its quality. I never played the game so all the inside fans stuff went over my head and I was able to enjoy the movie as it was presented. And enjoy it I did! I thought it was a cute movie, definitely on the kids side of things but still interesting enough for someone like me to watch. I did figure out the end (it was pretty easy to foretell) but I still enjoyed the journey of the characters. Jim Carrey was so good and I just wanted to punch his character, especially when he was interacting with others. I thought James Marsden was utterly perfect as the straight man to Sonic’s antics. The movie was well done and rather sweet and I would definitely recommend it.

Snowpiercer (Netflix) – I know, this movie has been out forever. My friend is on a Chris Evans kick, which reminds of my old regard for him. I’ve always enjoyed him in movies (not just Captain America) so it was inevitable that I’d finally watch this one… It was nothing I expected and I liked it. It was bleak, intriguing, and compelling. Chris Evans was good in it. It’s nice watching him plays someone other than Captain America…

WRITING

“I’ll Dream of You Again” – The re-write on this story is going slow. I know it’s because I want to change some things and so it’s taking me a bit longer to try and work things out. I don’t want to lose too much of what I originally wrote but perhaps throwing out chunks of the old stuff is what I need to do to tighten up the story or at least give it more cohesion. I do so love writing it though. Spending so much time with the characters is allowing me to get to know them better. Hopefully it comes through in the story…

“The Little One” – I started this story a couple of years ago and for some reason I’m looking back at it and adding to it. I hadn’t gotten to the end of it and I’m not sure how it ends so before I lose the thread, I think I’d like to try and finish it. Maybe it’s just a novella, which would probably work best for that story. If I want to expand it later, I suppose I can…

“In My Bed” – This story actually has an ending! It also has a sort of beginning. The middle is muddled, however, so if I feel like working on another story, I could go back to this one. It’s written in the first person, which would be a change from how I’m currently writing…

After the movie on Friday, I had lunch at Enishi Kitchen. Sushi just for me! It was delicious and so prettily presented…
