Weekend Round Up

What’s Jack up to? Well he’s gotten into something (maybe it’s all the tissue?) so he’s feeling a little low and quiet today. Let’s see how long it lasts. Maybe until 10:00? I hope he’s back to his old self soon.

Happy Monday and Welcome June!

It’s my birthday month! The month I love and loathe the most. I put way too much pressure on June. I guess too much pressure on myself in June. But we’ll save that for another post, another day…

So it’s back to the grind. I had a pretty decent weekend. It started really strong. I could not resist going to see Sex And The City on Friday night even though I’m on a writing deadline the darn movie was calling me and apparently every other woman in Westchester county, and from the strong box office, the country. It was packed!

But, I had a ball! It was an estrogen fest in that theater with woman ranging from 20-60 all smiling and happily decked out in their best accessories at our local theater. The thought of all the stressed men ordering pizza with children pulling at their pants legs just made me smile.
It was a gab-fest in the theater until the lights went down and the first familiar tunes of the SATC theme started then there was actual applause. Fancy that! I’m telling you it was like we were all hungry for a sweeter simpler time, a time when we all had hope, better abs and higher breasts!

To me, despite what the New York Times says, the movie did not disappoint. Sure it could have been better in spots but so what. So could anything. I had a a blast! Loved it!

See it with friends. See it with Fans. See it with Fashionistas!
Have fun. Don’t take it too seriously. It’s not about that. It’s about, friends, family and LOVE!

The Fashions were fab-u-lous. I could not stop grinning during a certain fashion sequence. Sigh. What a geek I am! I also just loved the use of white and bright color. Sort of a pop art splash/clash thing going on.

Fans of the show will be glad to know that all the old faves are back and the characters are true to form. I walked away loving Charlotte in this movie. There were some laugh out loud scenes with her.

I can’t wait for it to come on video so I can go over the fashions again and again. Just delicious. Yum!

Then on Saturday I was up bright and early of our church’s annual AIDS walk-a-thon. Thank goodness we didn’t get rained out. We had a nice crowd for a little walk though Mount Vernon. Thanks to our kindly police escorts and to the drivers that we annoyed while holding up traffic. It was for a very important cause. It’s everyone’s issue. Thanks so all my friends for their pledges of support!

Oh, and for you writers and folks of faith and even those of just a little hope check out this blog that writer, Trish Ryan has put up called forty days of faith.

Then it was all writing all the time and still is. I’m way into my new proposal and have to be all about that. Shh… must keep it under wraps. I will say this though. It’s H-O-T!

So… how was your weekend?
