Weekend Adventures!

Saw Iron Man 2 over the weekend. My thoughts? It was kick-ass, bad-ass, or any other type of ass you can think of. It wasn't quite as good as the first movie, plot wise; however, the winning element of the movie was Robert Downey Jr., of course. His quick-witted cocky comments are always a delight to watch, and no other actor could pull off that kind of charming narcissism better than him. You should go watch it for a little dose of joy. Plus, the race track scene is intensely fun (this scene also makes me want to visit Monaco, BADLY). I give the movie: ★ ★ ★

In other news this weekend:

I drank a little too much Friday night. Oops. It's been awhile, and Blackberry Stoli is so covertly strong, I didn't know what hit me...which leads to Saturday, the hangover day. I didn't want to venture outside, but I promised a kid at my work that I would go to his baseball game. How horrible would I be for not showing up?

After dragging myself there and seeing this smile:

...any trace of headache melted away. Apparently he had been telling his parents all week that I was coming, since he was so excited. This is why I love kids.

And then Sunday, I CLEANED THE HOUSE LIKE A MAD WOMAN!!! For mom. of course. You know when you get in those cleaning moods? I was like a cleaning tornado! I literally cleaned the house. It sparkles, thankyouverymuch.

Anyway, that's the recap of my weekend. How was your weekend?


  1. What a sweet kid!! Awwww I can definitely see how his little smile could make ANYTHING better! :)

    And awesome that you were so productive while you felt so yucky!! I haven't seen IM-2 yet.. or 1 for that matter. A project for this weekend I think :)

  2. Aw! It's stuff like that that makes your day, no matter how hungover.

    And that Stolli stuff IS strong! I had quite a few Lemondrops with Raspberry/Blueberry Stolli when I was out in Portland... the thing is the next day it's not my head that hurts but every single other part of my body, because I'm apparently retarded and keep walking into objects when drunk!...heck, I do that when sober, too!

  3. :D i cleaned my flat like a mad woman too las weekend...just because some friends were visiting ;)

    if not, i'd leave it looking like it's been hit by a huge tornado :D

  4. It was 48 and rainy all weekend here.

    That is all :(

  5. awww ... i'm glad you didn't miss that. too too cool.

    and, speaking of mr downey junior, i hope you've seen sherlock holmes because he's absolutely brilliant (smashingly so) in that one. but when is he not?

  6. Good, thanks.

    By the way, I loved Sam Rockwell just as much as I loved Robert Downey, Jr. Sam's one of my faves to watch on screen these days. He's always hysterical as the sleazebucket.
