Happy St Patrick's Day everyone!

Sunday night we had load-out for Legally Blonde. Only six trucks, so didn't take too long. We did miss the shuttle launch because of it, which is a shame since hubby wanted to see it. I'm hoping we have time at some point to drive over and see one from up close. Hubby being from New Hampshire, this is new to him.

Last night we had some friends from tour over for dinner. I figured after living on a bus, they could use a home cooked meal. I made pot roast with mashed potatoes and veggies. Even used the gravy boat for the first time ever. (It was a wedding present)

After our guests left, hubby and I watched Boondock Saints. It's the most Irish movie I have on DVD, so I figured good way to kick off St Patty's Day.

Last week, we went and saw Watchmen on opening night. I'm still not sure how I feel about the movie. I loved the book. I thought the movie had great FX, and I liked the soundtrack (I tend to like anything that uses Leonard Cohen for it's soundtrack). But I'm not sure about the changes. I get why they need to leave stuff out (don't want the movie to be 5 hours long), but some of the changes seemed superficial and unnecessary. All in all, I thought the movie was good.

Guess that's all for now. I've been taking advantage of being at home and using the library alot. The one here has a program where you can request books online and they mail them to your house, so it works great for narcoleptics like me. I'm currently reading the DUNE series. Having seen the movie (both the old one,and the more recent one) its hard to read the book, and not picture certain actors in each part. Now I remember why I always try to read the book first.

That's all for now. I'm gonna go try to wake up hubby so we can put a coat of paint on the walls in the bedroom.

Happy St Patty's Day everyone!
