Hello, gentle readers! Hope you are all well and staying safe!
What shall we talk about today? There’s nothing really happening here (other than the usual stuff). I am still working on The Maverick & Miss Miller (actually finished ripping out and re-writing the last few chapters…it’s better I think). I did miss my self-imposed deadline, but I’m waiting for the new stuff to come back from critique.
It’s been beautiful here in Arizona, but truthfully, I haven’t had much time to enjoy our beautiful weather…and that’s okay. I’d much rather finish this story (I have several others just waiting to be worked on).
Oh, I know what I can talk about! The DH and I went to a movie. At a movie theatre! Something we haven’t done in a long (long, long) time. We saw The Lost City and I have to admit that I loved it. Reminded me of Romancing the Stone, which is a favorite movie of mine.
The ticket price wasn’t too, too bad (I paid the senior price…when did I become a senior?!?!?) and the popcorn was just the way I like it (must have popcorn at the theatre though I shouldn’t have had as much as I did).If you’re a fan of Sandra Bullock, which I am (she looks fabulous, by the way, but then, she always looks fabulous), and a fan of Channing Tatum, which I am (OMG, Channing Tatum’s butt…need I say more?), by all means, see this movie. There’s physical comedy (if you’ve read my blogs before, then you know I’m a-pie-in-the-face, slip-on-a-banana-peel kinda gal), snappy dialogue (I’d heard a lot of the dialogue was ad-libbed), funny situations (did I mention Channing Tatum’s butt?), and a surprise appearance by Brad Pitt. I laughed. A lot. So did other people in the audience (particularly the guy who sat two rows away from me…he let out a couple pretty loud guffaws, which was funny in itself…his wife (I assume she was his wife) kept trying to shush him but he was having none of that.
It was an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon and let me take a break from both the day job and the writing.
Stay well! Stay safe! And remember to spread kindness wherever you go!
