The Past 24 Hours

Since I won't be getting a summer break this year, I figured, what the hell, let's get into "summer vacation mode" right now! Last night, around this time, I decided to watch a movie or two. I have literally dozens of movies, still in the damn cellophane, that I keep buying, but then never getting around to watching. Most of them would be considered 'old' movies, which is why I can buy them in the bargain bin at Walmart.

So, last night I watched 40 Year Old Virgin. Hilarious!! But, by the time it ended, and I watched all the bloopers and bonus scenes, it was WAY past my bedtime, and I could hardly keep my eyes open.

So, bright and early this morning, I continued my movie marathon. Well, not SO bright and early. First, I checked my email and read my blogs, then I did some laundry, then I emptied and reloaded the dishwasher, then I prepared a roast, complete with potatoes and TONS of sliced onions (just the way I like it!) for the crockpot, then I cleaned both of Buster's ears and his icky eye, and applied 3 different medications to them, THEN I started watching movies.

I watched Last Holiday, followed by What Happens in Vegas, The Breakup, and I just finished Knocked Up. I took a quick break to enjoy some of this yummy roast, and I'm about to go watch Failure to Launch. Ok, so they might not be Oscar-worthy movies, but they are perfect for the kind of gloomy, stormy weather we've been having. I haven't really moved off my couch, except to pee, eat and go downstairs to get more movies, since about 10 this morning. See, "summer vacation mode!" Love it!

OK, I'm off! The couch is calling me! I hope you all had as an enjoyable Saturday as I have so far!

I like all your non-oscar worthy movies. The breakup is great...I am sure you know it was filmed in Chicago. We were actually visiting the city while the filming was going on and kept 'running' into the camera crew.

Didn't Knocked Up crack you up???
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

What an industrious gal you are and your pot roast sounds yummy! Love roasted onions (and veggies).

Love the oldies of which we have quite a few as well - Walmart is great for bargains of some classics! It's been a great movie-watching weekend here too in ON (Rainy). I have the complete series to Six Feet Under, and decided to pull this out Friday night to start watching from the beginning. Funny (but at times heavy) stuff, which is why I love it.

Enjoy your time off!

Love a movie day! I've seen all of the movies you mentioned except "Last Holiday." I loved most of them. I like a good laugh. When you said "Old" movies I was thinking like Gone with the Wind, or Footloose as the most recent. Haha. Roast sounds gooooood!
