Tortoise AND Hare

Slow is good, but only if you keep on going. Perseverance for me takes energy - rabbit-like energy, in fact, of Energizer Bunny proportions. So plodding still requires effort. I'm just so much better at being inert.
However, I've lost 30 of the 50 I'm jettisoning, so the hare and the tortoise need to make friends and get it done.
Can I get a Amen?

I really liked Lunch Box! (I've wanted to travel to India for about 25 years or more now...)

HOWEVER, I fell asleep (had 24 hour window to watch it), and re-watched ending and am still slightly confused. So, I will have to watch it again.

I find myself wanting to call out randomly (though I have no one to address as such!): AUNTIE!! AUNTIE!! Should I put more peppers into the sauce???!!!

Will make note to look up Animal Kingdom. Not on my radar. Trying to take kids to see new Apes movie. I like that they are old enough to watch MY kind of fare now! No more insipid HORRID versions of Winnie the Pooh!!!

By marker, I meant bookmark. By SP calendar, I meant an actual planner that sends a reminder to your email when you ask it to. I get these little reminders about birthdays and appointments that are very helpful to me. Of course yo have to remember to put them in the planner, and I have been known to forget t even to do that.

I found where I had lost the bookmark and am happy to share the goodness of this SP feature.

I actually took my 12-yr-old to meet up with friends on his first "group date" kind of thing (well, I can hardly call it a date, but it made me wistful), to see The Fault in Our Stars. I loved the book, not sure if I'll see the movie.

Today, courtesy of my 80-something mom, DH, youngest and I (eldest is at a band camp) went to see "Chef". It was kind of slow in the beginning, and could use some editing, but I ended up enjoying it, especially shots of places in New Orleans and Austin* that I know.

It was cute and worth seeing---rated R, but most of it was due to kitchen-folk cursing like sailors...nothing my kid hasn't heard around here on bad nights.

But, like I said, it was previewed, approved, insisted-upon and PAID FOR by my mom! And it was a good Father's Day movie.

*one portion took place outside the restaurant where we had our wedding rehearsal dinner....

Thanks for the scooter! One of my oldest GF's had a scooter in college, and one night, when we were about 18, we went out on it, thinking we were so cool and sexy....slowed for a stop sign, and fell over!
bwa-ha-ha-ha!

Couldn't stop giggling after that....
