Nancy Drew

I loved the Nancy Drew books as a 12 (or so) year old. Read them all. So I decided to watch the movie on DVD.  Really, really corny. Now I’m thinking about going back and reading one of the books again to see if it was as corny. Or if the movie just didn’t translate.


Charlie Wilson’s War

Just watched this on DVD. Where was I in the 80’s? I know I was young (20’s an 30’s) and I was single, married and had a child. I know I was busy. But how did I miss all this while it was happening? Was it kept quiet or did I just have my head that far in the sand? I know I pay a lot more attention to world events now, but this is making me wonder what else I’m currently missing. Great movie. Of course, I always love Tom Hanks!

Scrapbook weekend

We’re having a scrapbook weekend at my friend Claudia’s house. Friday night we just hung around, went for Italian food and watched a movie. Terri ordered a deep dish pizza that only came in one size. Turned out the size was about 20″ x 20″. It was huge! Guess I know what’s for lunch. Then we watched No Reservations on DVD. It was cute! Saturday, we went to the Scrapbook Barn in Dallas to shop. I picked up two sets of Croppin Folders. Not sure if I’ll like them, but thought I’d try them for pre-planned layouts. Saturday night we scrapped and had some yummy pasta that Terri made. Sunday we also cropped and had a great taco pie from Chris. I finished a Baby Shower album for a friend.Baby Shower album

Visit from a friend

A friend (of about 30 years duration) came to visit from San Antonio this weekend. We didn’t do very much. Friday night we sat around and chatted and caught up. Saturday we picked up a couple DVD’s to watch. Eastern Promises which was pretty good. And American Gangster which we both thought was slow as molasses. Friday we also went to the Wildflower Blossoms Overstock Scrapbook Sale and I bought more than I planned. Sunday we stopped by Best Buy to get her an external USB floppy drive to read some old floppies she needs. All in all, a nice relaxing weekend.
