We watched the movie Little Miss Sunshine last night at the insistence of my friend, Kelli. It was cute but I don’t know what all the hype was about. The son was weird but the grandfather (played by Alan Arkin) was a hoot and I liked Steve Carell’s character. Them having to push the bus every time they left cracked me up too.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. We did. Hubby and I went to dinner with friends Saturday night and went back to their house and played Trivial Pursuit 80’s. I grew up in the late 70’s and 80’s and thought I would kick butt at this game – WRONG. It was hard because I don’t follow any sports nor was I old enough to know much national news nor do I know geography. Hubby eneded up winning but we were all happy just to be done with the game.
I LOVE games. I mean LOVE them! My favorite is Scrabble but I suck at it. I have the deluxe game with the spinning board (it’s on a turntable) and I even bought the “Official Scrabble Dictionary” but having these things doesn’t make you any good. I also love Spades but you have to have 4 people to play that and I can’t ever talk Hubby into playing since he hates games- especially card games. I dont’ like Clue though because I suck at that. My daughter’s favorite game is Life but I don’t care for that one much either. We play Uno and Phase 10 at my office a lot when we have down time. We also play old-fashioned Rummy but eveyone plays by different rules so that makes it hard sometimes. I learned how to play Dominoes this past year and LOVE that game. But, you have to have a lot of room on which to play that and they’re noisy.
I also watched The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain last night. It was a little slow but a cute movie. I had no idea it was based on a true story until the very end. Wow – those Welsh are nuts.
Oh, that reminds me – you know how I admitted to watching Flavor of Love earlier this year? Well, that series has been long over but there was a particularly nasty girl they called New York who was on the first season and came back for the second season and actually ended up coming in 2nd place both times. Well, I saw a clip on VH1 that she’s got her own show!!! I Love New York premieres tonight (I think). Her crazy mom is going to be on it with her. I don’t want to watch this show but feeled compelled to do so (hanging my head in shame.)
