mellicious: pink manicure (Xmas excess)
[personal profile] mellicious
Rob's parents sent us some money, so with my portion I ordered a sleeve for my Kindle (this one) and the "Ultimate Edition" of Prisoner of Azkaban. (I have the Sorcerer's Stone one so I'd like to have the whole set, theoretically - at least for the movies I don't already have.) I doubt that this was really the best use of my money but oh well. I went to Sam's earlier; I should really stay out of there because it makes me want to buy videos, every time. I looked at that Harry Potter box and didn't buy it, but then when I got home and found the check, I caved. (Rob is a big enabler on video purchases, too, I have to say. Why does he encourage me?)

I also bought some Christmas cards because I can't find the ones I know I already have, and I know I won't get around to making many, if any. But I only bought one box, which won't be enough, anyway, even if I pare down my list. (Also, I just looked at the TUS list and, whoops, I wonder if the one to Ireland can make it in, what, 6 working days? Be interesting to see.)

I am feeling... well, not exactly Grinchy about the holidays, exactly, but I don't seem to be interested in doing much. I have wreaths on the balcony and the front door, and one of my mom's big nutcrackers sitting on the TV, but that's about it. No tree, no lights, none of that junk so far. Rob was making noises about getting a real tree, which I don't think we've done since the first year we were married. I saw some good-sized Norfolk pines in pots ("good-sized" = four feet or so) at the grocery store, I wonder if those are big enough to suit him? I think he just wants something with a tree smell, though, and I don't think Norfolk pines have that kind of smell to them, do they? Not that I can recall, anyway. (I guess I'll have to go and smell them and see.)


Oh, I forgot to say before that we finally went to see Easy A at the dollar movie on Sunday. (We've talked about going every weekend for a month or more.) I liked it more than I expected to, which is fairly high praise because I expected to like it. As usual, I can't really figure out how to describe why. For one thing, I thought it would stick to the whole "Scarlet Letter" theme a lot longer than it really did. Which is a good thing as far as I'm concerned.

I have a Norfolk pine upstairs. No smell whatsoever.

For what it's worth.

Thank you! You saved me from having to go sniff trees!

My big complaint - and this is relatively minor - is that hardly any of the high school kids looked young enough to really be in high school. But, y'know, neither do most of the kids in Glee. As long as they don't all look 30, I can live with that.

That pretty much applies to every filmed thing ever (given the regulations for how long kids have to be in school). So...yeah, that just kinda comes with the territory.

Then again, I'm 32 and can easily pass for 18, so hey, it happens in real life too!
