Project 52: Date Night

I gave Joel a couple of choices for date night and he choose a rental and popcorn.  We watched "The Hurt Locker" on Amazon's Video on Demand. 

It's about two hours long and oh say half way through motion sickness kicked in for me.  We took a little break, I took a little Bonine and answered the question "If you could change one thing about your life right now, what would it be?"  I liked his answer and he said he'd help me change mine.
We decided to finish the movie and my take on the movie, LAME! I was engaged and tracking along and then the end just kind of fizzled out like a flat Coke.  The dude should have been blown up, that would be a great commentary on love right there! Alas, I did not write it. 


Speaking of writing movies (like that transition?) Joel and I are going to try our hand at ScriptFrenzy this April.  I'm going to have to get to work creating some future posts for you all because if not, there might not be any updates all of April :)

  1. I always feel the same way about movies. I should be consulted before they are released! :)

  2. Thanks for dropping by! I'm glad that I watched it with him as it's the kind of movie I would normally ask him to watch on his own. But I should remember to take precautions before watching movies that might have the free arm recording. Ugh.

Project 52: Shiver me dufuses

This date I pulled out a puzzle that I had bought for Joel years ago.  I put up a little camp table , and even devised a system to keep the pieces in place with some fabric, so we could roll it up and stow it.  I was all ready to go and then the reality of the puzzle set in and I realised, I don't like puzzles.  I was already frustrated and worn out by the darn thing and we were only a mere few minutes into working on it!  Instead of getting upset, we changed plans. The puzzle was abandoned and Joel went out for a shamrock shake from McD's and two cherry pies.  We played some MadLibs .  The one we bought for Hannah today was Pirate themed and the story that was the funniest included a peg elbow and a pet pencil sitting on your shoulder saying "Shiver me dufuses!" We even had a joke book that we'd picked up for Hannah and read a couple of terrible jokes to one another while shuffling cards for cribbage. A fun night full of laughter and green shakes.  Well, I&#

KAF No-Fuss Focaccia

I really like making bread.  It's fun to get your hands dirty, but I understand that yeast is a scary thing for people who don't have experience with it.  Somehow, I started using it when I was young and too immature to understand the fear that comes along with wasting time, money and energy.  I had time and energy in abundance.  My first real forte into baking was in the 7 th grade.  I must have cooked before then because I choose to see which flour rose the highest using a cinnamon roll recipe.  I made a lot of cinnamon rolls that year and when I turned in my report, there were questions asked of me that I had no idea what she meant.  Questions about the weather and the heat of the oven.  Things that I didn't know could make a difference in the baking of bread.  Lots has happened since that first memorable baking.  Today, I invited a friend over to make bread.  I was kind of concerned about the strength of the yeast, because we bought a huge stash of it last year someti
