It was a good weekend. There was lots of walking and some shopping and hair dyeing and all sorts of lovely things. The weather was fantastic all weekend. Saturday was close to perfect - breezy, a little bit of a bite to the air but still warm in the sun. I love it when I get a chance to have some time in a day like that.
My boss, his boss and a whole fleet of other people are heading out to Korea and Japan on Wednesday. I can't explain how jealous of them I am. Still, a week after that I'm heading to New Orleans, so it isn't all bad, now is it? I'm hoping to have a good time where I can just breathe and not worry too much. Right now the weather looks like upper 70s and thunderstorms which sounds about like every other forecast I've had for flying in to that town.
On the BPAL front, it looks like the Yule scents are up. I'm most certainly slowing down in my BPAL purchasing. There are a lot of neat scents listed but there are only a few I'm really interested in at all. I might well have more than I'll ever be able to wear right now as it is, so....
I'm not going to get all ranty about politics right now. It is better that I not flip out about how bastardy some people can get.
I'm reading Desire of the Everlasting Hills, which makes me think about religion and Judaism and Christanity and a lot of other things. There are a lot of awesome parts of a lot of religions out there. I find that I am most often turned off by the followers of those religions more than the tenants set forth by the religion itself. It is also interesting that this book started with Alexander and then went right into the era of Jews performing epispasm *twitch* in order to fit in at the gymnasium with all of the other naked Greeks.... It grounded me in a world that was very familiar to me. It is sometimes too easy to forget that Christianity began then since it has been such a fixture in my life - sometimes a point of contention and sometimes a point of solace.
On a sort of related note, we're kicking back up into movie watching season. Here is what I'm looking forward to for the next few months:
City of Ember
Zack and Miri Make a Porno
Quantum of Solace
The Tale of Despereaux - Which I would love to see with Mike, Leigh and David if possible.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
I probably wont see all of them but it pretty much boils down to seeing anything that isn't Twilight. And if that weren't enough, there are like 8 games coming out in that same time period that I want to play.
I think I'm instituting the holiday no buying phase a little early. Just to save my sanity if nothing else.
Okay. Enough updating. More work.
