Hope your respective weekends were good.
Corn and I hung out with Mr and Mrs Kaptain on Saturday night ...went to see Hollywoodland, the new Ben Assflick picture. And I say, "picture" because it's in keeping with Ben's old school persona in this one. The movie is, okay. It doesn't suck, it's not fab - it's okay. But I find it really hard to take Assflick seriously. Mebbie that's just me. I first saw him in Chasing Amy YEARS ago and thought he was great. Then the years went on, J'Lo dumbness happened and I tuck n' rolled right off that bandwagon.
So - back to Saturday, after the PICTURE we stopped for a bite at Guido and Angelina's in the Forum. Nicolas is the manager there - a really great guy (who says hi to Ma Horton by the way!). I was asking him about the day of the shooting. He said in the confusion, lots of people were running into his restaurant. And a lot of his staff actually go to school at Dawson - including his busboy, who was with the young girl who was killed. ERGH.
On the way back to our car, Corn and I stopped by the makeshift memorial outside of the school. Part of me wanted to avoid it - the other part, wanted to go. I'm glad I did...Flowers, candles, cards, signs - and a constant flow of people, silently paying their respects. I cried. I couldn't help it. This kind of stuff is so senseless. It is such a cliche, but you just never know. I wish that didn't sound like such a tired line. It loses its importance that way. But, y'know.
So, how are YOU guys? Been minimal action on here lately and you know how I hate minimal action. HAR HAR HAR. Oh! On the homefront - we saw a BEEE-YOO-TI-FUL townhouse in Verdun on the weekend...I mean, fabulous and the price was right. And then - we noticed it was right beside a giant municipal power supply thingy. And call me crazy, but I don't feel like wakin' up one morning with 3 eyes and radioactive skin. Even IF they lowered the asking price by $20 G.
