Curtis and I had another lunch date Friday afternoon. We met up to refinance our mortgage- romantic I know. While we were waiting for the appointed time to head to the bank, we browsed through the sales racks at Urban Outfitters (I was surprised he was willing to go in since we know how he feels about Anthropologie), and I picked up a couple of headbands, including the one in today's pictures, and the awesome spiked bracelet I've got on.
I know spiked accessories are super-trendy (were super-trendy? Usually by the time I get to a trend, it's passe), so I was really happy to find it on sale relatively cheap. What can I say? I'm easily swayed. As soon as I got to the car, I ripped the tags off and put it on. So shiny. Sitting next to Curtis in the bank, I was bored, so I started playing Fruit Ninja on my phone. Boom! I slice into a bomb! Dang it! I can't yell out because we are waiting. In a bank. So I smack Curtis in the arm. With my spiked bracelet.
Glad to know that in a pinch I could use my accessories as weapons. That will be especially handy when school starts back ;) (I kid, I kid). Anyway, after we signed our lives away again, we decided to go see Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. As fans of the book, and if you haven't read it then I highly recommend it, we had super high expectations for the movie. We were really excited because the writer of the novel also wrote the screen play, so we thought it would be true to the original. Sadly, that was not the case. I am such a nerd that the movie has literally been the last thing I've thought about before I go to sleep and the first thing I think about when I wake up. I have Googled and Wiki'ed so many people,comparing their characters to the real person. I really geeked out over the whole thing.
While the movie wasn't as good as the book, I did enjoy it. However, I get the feeling that lots of people don't "get" it and think the premise is stupid. This is a real shame because it is so clever and interesting and fun. What's wrong with fun? Everyone acts like the movies are supposed to be so serious and artsy. What's wrong with something just being a good time? What movies haven't lived up to your expectations? Will you go see Abe Lincoln?
