I am supposed to be holding a sledgehammer and tearing apart shelving at the museum today. Instead I am editing a display, and creating agendas and tasks for the students for this week. Clearly, not as fun.
Foolish of me to think our cabinets would be arriving on time.
It’s also 13C (55F) outside, and although I am definitely not a fan of the hot heat, I do like a little warmth to get the digits moving. Something just isn’t right about warming your hands over the space heater at the end of June.
Still, the weather hasn’t deterred me from getting out this weekend. “Vancouver Sunny” as I like to call it, works for patios and libations. Our restaurant patios have heaters too, so that helps. Over the last few days I’ve managed to have two great nights out with friends whom I hadn’t seen in a while, plus connecting with another two friends via Skype. I don’t think I could have lasted in this nomadic lifestyle without video Skype.
In addition to thought provoking conversations, I’ve been taking it a lot of films lately, both at the cinema and on the home front. Perhaps the biggest surprise was my enjoyment over the popcorn flick X Men: First Class. Not usually one I typically would enjoy, but it really surprised me. I think this prequel was far better than the others in the series. I’m even going back to see it again when the Boy visits next week. This was my compromise so I didn’t have to watch Green Lantern, which frankly looks like rubbish.
What films are you looking forward to this summer? What ones have you enjoyed recently?
