Summer weekend

June 19, 2006

What a great weekend! Friday night we rented Memoirs of a Geisha, which Justin hadn’t seen yet. I think he really enjoyed the cinematography, but didn’t quite understand a girl’s desire to be with a very old man who was already married. 🙂 I was captivated once again by the world of the geishas.

Saturday we watched the World Cup on the big screen at the Alamo Drafthouse with some friends, then headed to the park for a birthday party for my new friend and coworker, Grit. She’s from Germany, and made this gorgeous German cake.

I’m not really sure what it was made of, but it had a cake-like crust with a yogurt-peach topping that was scrumptious. I made her the chocolate-and-flowers apron for her work days at the B&B (she’s our new cook), and I based it on the apron that my friend Vidya made for me, because Grit had mentioned how much she liked it.

Sunday evening we had dinner at Chad and Lindsay’s, and she made a delicious layered dish with tortillas, fresh-from-her-farmer’s-garden veggies, and cheese. It was scrumptious. After dinner, Justin and I rented Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, which was so good. It was sarcastic and smart, silly and fun. It featured surprisingly funny performances from Robert Downey, Jr. and Val Kilmer. Loved it.

So today it’s back to work for Justin, and back to crafting for me. I have several projects for swaps that I need to work on, but I always seem to find some new thing to get sidetracked with. Maybe this week is just a lounge-around-the-house-and-read-old-books week. With chocolate sprinkled in there somewhere.

    Sounds and looks like a good time. Funny I just picked up kiss kiss bang-bang tonight and thought about renting it (went for calendar girls instead) and within a minute ago wrote the word scrumptious. Funny parallels those.
