Much to Chris's dismay, I am the queen of house projects. I promised him that this past weekend was going to be free of projects and all about the relaxing since his work schedule has calmed down.
Well, I am a big fat liar folks! I had every intention of having a nice relaxing weekend but then I had to get the new trim painted in the downstairs bath and the weather was perfect for replacing the rotted wood around our patio with stone and well, if Chris had a few days off, shouldn't he really tackle the giant aneurysm-inducing clutter-filled wreck that he's been calling his studio?
So yeah, if Chris ever leaves me it will be because I said "I didn't think it was going to be this big of a project" one too many times!

No one is pushing him to work so hard, it's just the way he's wired. He has never missed a deadline. It's just not in his makeup to disappoint himself and others. He takes what he does very seriously and conducts himself as a true professional, which I am very proud of. But every once in a while, I wish he'd put the brushes away and allow himself a full night of sleep. Or a full day of relaxing. Here's hoping that day comes soon.

I will forever associate Michael Jackson with me hiding behind our orange corduroy chair next to the stereo and reciting the words to Thriller and "accidentally" "misinterpreting" the part where Vincent Price says "funk". I'm pretty sure I got spanked good for that. Back in the eighties when you could spank your kids.

- Public Enemies is good, but I wouldn't call it great. The acting was great though and I loved all the principal actors in their parts. Especially Marion Cotillard, who is terribly gorgeous. My one major complaint - there is one scene in particular that the photography is not just jarring, but well, it sucks. It looks like they switched from film stock to all digital, handheld cameras and the end result is not pretty. It completely took me out of the movie and I actually felt like I was watching actors on a movie set.
- Johnny Depp looks amazing. Seriously, what is this guy doing to look so great? Chris and I spent the first five minutes after the movie gushing about how awesome he looks.
- I wish casting directors would stop putting known actors in bit parts. It's distracting when Emilie de Ravin or Leelee Sobieski shows up to say one or two lines.
- I feel so lucky I married someone who loves movies as much as I do. If it weren't for movies, I'm positive we would have run out of things to talk about by now! :)
