So today I did nothing. I got dressed and ready to go to the grocery store. Never made it. I planned to have spaghetti for supper tonight, but the closest I came to it was getting the jar of sauce out of the pantry. I decided that if today ended up being a do-nothing day, then it would be fine with me. I didn't have anything pressing to do, so I took advantage of having a full day with nothing to do.
Yesterday was disastrous. I got my new "tooth". I hate it. It's not painful -- well, I mean, relatively speaking. It's making me gag sometimes. Oh, and then there's the bracket poking my gum. And then there's the little issue of taking it out. It feels like it's going to rip the million dollars' worth of dental work I've had done right out of my mouth. Other than those "small" things, it's not bad at all. The $3500 implant is looking better and better.
Then there was a little mixup at Blockbuster that ended up with us owning this movie that I had been wanting to see.
So I snuggled up with my favorite blanket and wasted the afternoon away watching this movie. I will advise you that, unless you want to be thoroughly depressed, don't watch the movie. One of my favorite actresses, Abigail Breslin, of Little Miss Sunshine, was outstanding. And Cameron Diaz was great too. Sofia Vassilieva, whom I had never heard of, was so good too.
Now, this movie was based on a book written by Jodi Picoult. I started the book a good while back, but didn't finish it. I have learned since that if I had finished it, I would have been very disappointed with the movie. Have any of you read the book or seen the movie? Besides Karla, of course. I know she's seen the movie and probably read the book at least once.
Here's what I'm reading now.
I'm only on about page 50, but so far I'm loving it. You may remember that I have a vested interest in this book. Back in June when we were on vacation at Tybee, Miley Cyrus was there filming the movie.
Because I know Miley's role and I saw some of the sets, it's making the book so much more fun to read. And I cannot wait until April 2, 2010 to see the movie. If you want a sneak peek, just go here to see the movie trailer. You can actually see Lighthouse Pointe where we stay. So cool. I hope I won't be disappointed in the movie after reading the book. Do you usually like the book or the movie better?
So what's everyone doing for New Year's eve? The party we're going to is serving appetizers. Did anybody make one or try something someone else made that you loved? I want to take something different, but can't think of a thing. I'll probably end up getting Buffalo wings. You can't go wrong with those. And they don't have to stay hot to stay tasty.
I'm off to continue brushing up on my Spades skills.
Till next time.
