Family Fun

So we had family night on Friday and decided on Movie Tavern.  For anyone who's unsure what that is, it's basically a movie theater where you can order dinner, dessert, snacks, drinks to your seat throughout the movie.  It's fab! 


So we went to see the Hitman's Bodyguard--which was not at all what I expected--but was a great movie.  We got there early to stroll around and check out the shops and of course  we ended up at a book shop.  I have no will power.  I ended up with a book and got one for my daughter (partly because I want to read it too, lol!)


I just love indie bookstores!


Oddly enough I saw a physical copy of a book that's been on my 'maybe' list for the first time ever.


Then I found a new book for my 'maybe' list because the cover called out to the 80s kid in me.


And of course I didn't leave without making a purchase!

Creatures of Habit
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Creatures of Habit - Jim Pascoe,Paul Lee




I was always happier with Buffy/Spike than Buffy/Angel. I liked Angel with Cordie so much more. So glad Joss didn't kill Spike off in season 1 like originally intended.

Warning: grumpy post

Apparently, The Eurovision Song Contest is over. I say apparently, since I don't keep up with these things. Usually, my mom does, for some weird reason, but this time she only watched some of it and mercifully spared my sister and me the whole house shaking ear drum breaking noise attack. Do I sound negative? Sorry. I'm having a bad day.

When my sister and I got curious, after the fact, as it were, about why many people were unhappy about the song that won, we decided to listen to a minute or so of each of the top ten songs. So we did, and I quickly realized that while the winning song definitely wasn't my thing, I could tell that it actually was a good quality song. The others were meh at best. To me, that is. I'm not judging the people who liked the others.

All this is just a prelude to what I really wanted to say.

I feel out of touch with the world. And considering the way the world is going, that's fine with me. But it does make me feel like some weird freak. I hate the music most people like. I hate most tv series and movies released these days. I hate the aggressive marketing strategies that most people seem to take in their stride. It makes me sound like some grumpy old 100-year-old and I hate that too. LOL.

So - what did I want to say? I'm not sure. Maybe that I want to take my family and find some out of the way place and at least be safe, if not happy. And dive into books and (probably old) movies and tv series and forget about the rest of the world.

Schindler's List - Thomas Keneally

L'important, dans toute légende, ce n'est pas tellement qu'elle soit vraie ou fausse, que les faits rapportés soient exacts, c'est que l'histoire ait pu basculer à un moment pour devenir plus vraie que la vérité elle-même.

Licht mit le tout dans un creuset et confectionna une bague portant en inscription ce verset du Talmud que Stern avait cité à Oskar dans les bureaux de Buchheister en octobre 1939 :
"Celui qui sauve une vie sauve le monde entier"
