movie day at the Blondins

I'm soooo bad; haven't posted much lately. And there be no card-making in the Blondin household this weekend either. I actually worked late Friday, then brought work home (ugh!), and Sunday played with my latest toy (a nook - finally broke down and got an eReader - but with an N2A microSD card to be able to multitask as an Android ... wish me luck here!) and broke away from that to see a movie w friends midday.

I'd suggested we see this one last month, but a couple of my recently retired friends now get to travel at whim and one was away when Crazy, Stupid, Love hit the local theaters. Both Sue's were back in town this weekend (yeah, 3 Sue's who hang together ... what are the chances of that, eh?!) so we got together today w Barb to take in the movie and eats afterward.

The movie was great, tho' I was a bit hesitant to suggest it as I wasn't a fan of 2010's Date Night. Starring Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, and Emma Stone, with smaller yet significant parts played by Marisa Tomei and Kevin Bacon - all of whom I like - it was mainly about surviving a mid-life crisis in the marriage of the Carell and Moore characters. I won't spill the beans by saying anything more ... just go see it!

Seen any good movies lately? Please share! I downloaded my first book on the nook and have started reading The Help - probably another movie we'll see soon! ... and now, I'll return to reading! Hope you had a t'riffic weekend and thanx for stopping by!

I just read "The Help" and loved the book. A couple of days ago I saw the movie and it was just as good as the book. Enjoy the story!
