geez...i swear i'm almost done with the blog post catch up. sorry for the overload!
b's fam stayed a few extra days after the cruise to see our apartment and visit pasadena, so we spent the weekend playing tour guide.
friday after disembarking the boat, we showed them around paseo and saw valkyrie, which i was excited to watch. i've always been a huge fan of world war II movies, so that favoritism overruled the fact that i hate tom cruise. plus this is about germans! i love germans!
i thought the movie was pretty good. they did an awesome job of building up suspense, even though we have all known the ending for about 70 years. for a second i actually wondered if hitler was actually dead. and tom wasn't too bad.
yesterday we drove all over the greater los angeles area. usc, culver city, hollywood, beverly hills -- all the overpopulated places i try to avoid. oh well, at least i got some tito's out of it :)
and i gotta say, this has been a fabulous weekend for tv. last night sleepless in seattle was on tnt, and tonight is the sound of music! i don't usually need an excuse to watch these movies that i can quote verbatim, but it's always nice to not have to pull out the dvds :)
