yes, I’m a week behind again.  I once again left it ’til last minute and was going to do it on the plane on the way to OC but then the card appeared to be corrupted.  Right before I was going to come home I was getting ready to reformat the card and noticed it was a bit mucky…wiped it off and voila! it worked again.  so I did this on the plane ride home.

Dinner & A Movie – Ravioli & Yes Man

It’s become a bi-weekly tradition that D and I grab a movie to watch with Sunday dinner. Tonight we had some chicken ravioli and garlic bread and watched Yes Man. I thought it was cute, d thought it was sort of random. Jim Carrey looks old! How old is he now, anyway? Zooey Deschanel usually sort of bugs me (example: Tin Man), but she was not bad in this. Sort of made me wanna be a yes girl. Sort of.

I’m not so hot at writing reviews, so here’s what people think at Amazon:

P.S. Decided i’m too tired to do a Colors! painting tonight. I forgot to plug in the DS. Will catch up tomorrow.
