Angels and Demons, Bones, and a moment of panic.
So, I cast on and started my special project.
Some how, I messed up, and either cut an extra bit, or I split a bit, and I have to figure out what I did.
Figuring out that I messed up was actually only found out after I finished my second row, and 3 parts came off. It left me with a WTF? moment.
So after giving up last night due to frustration and sleepyness, I have not picked it back up again. I don’t know if I will pick it up tonight or not, as my back is hurting, and I do not want to transfer any of the back pain vibes into the knitting. Which happens. And as this is a gift… I have to make sure it doesn’t happen.
Yesterday I nearly had a heartastroke as, well mom and I went to see Angels and Demons.
We went to Whole Foods to buy a bit of lunch, and I must say that I feel as if I am cheating on my Whole Foods every time I go to the WF over on that side of town. It is a smaller one, and not nearly as good on top of the whole “I’m cheating” feeling.
After eating lunch, mom and I went to Coldstone next to the theater and got some ice cream.
Then we went into the theater. Of course we were the first ones there.
I sat down, got up, went to the loo, got us napkins, sat down, chilled, got comfy. So on and so forth.
I reached for my chapstick in my right pocket, and realized there were only 2 items in my pocket. My chapstick and my Orajel (the tooth I had a root canal on, and has been damaged etc has been bugging me, so I started keeping numb stuff with me again… you’d think that after 3 years (or more) of sucking that stuff down I’d be immune to it… nope. still works.. well for the most part. The problem I have can’t be fully numbed, but I’ll do my darndest.).
What was missing from my pocket was my flash drive.
I had distinctly remembered putting it in my right pocket when I left work.
Que me panicking.
I search under my seat.
I trace my steps back to the loo.
I come up with nothing.
Mom said she remembered seeing it poking out of my pocket while we were in the car eating.
I did technically have time to go out and check the car, but there was a reason I didn’t. The reason was this: If I simply clung to the hope that it was in the car, I’d be able to possibly enjoy the movie. If I went out to the car and it wasn’t there. I’d cry, and thus not really enjoy the movie. So, the fear of not knowing helped me in this case.
Fast forward, yes. It was in the car. Thank gods.
Seriously, I’d rather loose my wallet then loose my flash drive.
Not because the stuff isn’t replaceable (at most I’d loose a few reference images, that I had just added, because I’m a smart girl and saved a copy of everything on my computer.) but because that would mean a copy of both my unpublished novels, my resumes, documents on the whole “starting my own business” thing. (Including a list of all my colorways.)
a wallet would be, though expensive (just the fees of replacing my cards etc) would be less frightening to replace then the creative content that would then be floating into the world without my control.
Now, on to the movie.
Angels and Demons
I absolutely LOVED the movie.
It was breathtakingly beautiful.
The music was fantastic.
The changes they made, for the most part were completely understandable, and did not affect the overall story too much.
The only gripe I had, was the “Illuminati Diamond”
I will not give spoilers as there are people who haven’t seen it yet.
I have to say also, that it is amazing, how just 1 scene.. an innocent scene, can cause the entire audience to collectively gasp. And no, it’s not a scene any of you prolly think it is.
I’ll wait at least 2 weeks, then I’ll chat about it.
One thing I can say without spoiling anything.. .because I doubt anyone other then myself would have noticed it…
But the writers created a paradox.
That, is amusing to me.
They created a paradox because, the story of Angels and Demons is supposed to be set prior to the events in The Da Vinci Code. This, was also established in the DaVinci Code, because of Robert Langdon saying “I’ve met the pope” or whatever the line actually was. It implied the story that we didn’t see. The story of Angels and Demons.
Well, in Angels and Demons, they set those events AFTER the events of The DaVinci Code, and makes a point of setting it AFTER.
Which means they created a paradox. Considering the subject matter… the fact that they created a paradox just highly, highly amuses me.
After the movie, mother of mine and I went to Hobby Lobby, as she needed to pick up some more paint. Why is it, you can have over 50 bottles of paint in the house, but not have the exact color you need?? I swear it’s a giant conspiracy.
I picked up two rubber stamps, as I couldn’t not get them.
One is of a crooked witches hat, and the other says “Bugs and Hisses”
I had to.. I just absolutely had to.
Caught up with Moonlighting season 3, man that show was good. And oh my gods, Mark Harmon was a hottie in it. Yes, the show immediately started to jump the shark after the whole “hook up” moment, but I’ll still continue to watch the seasons as they come out on dvd.
Right now, I’m starting Season 4 of Silk Stalkings. Again I love that show.
I finished reading Death Du Jour by Kathy Reichs. The 2nd book of the Bones books.
I know I’ve commented on this already, but it was highly enjoyable, and I honestly can’t wait to read the next one. Got to actually see more of Detective Ryan, which was enjoyable.. I very much am starting to imagine David Boreanaz when I see Detective Andrew Ryan.
Next book up, I’ll be finally actually starting The Princess Bride, and I’ll also quickly reread Dead Until Dark.
Today mother and I went out to Panera for breakfast to use our last free sammich certificate before it expires. After that we hit up Evilmart, and I bought myself a new pair of jeans. Mother of mine found a pair for me, that actually fit, and when we rung them up, 3$ oh yeah, nothing like finding a pair of jeans that fit and paying less than 5$ for them.
Wait, no that still bothers me. I hate shopping at Evilmart, but I just can’t justify spending 40$ on a pair of jeans right now when ever penny is trying to be saved.
My last pair of Evilmart jeans lasted me nearly a year, and that was a year of tough wear, so these should at least last me till the move if I’m good at rotating all my jeans out.
Alright, I think I’ve rambled on enough. I gotta go check on my dinner.
Bugs and Hisses everyone.
