A loooooong weekend

Because of President's Day on Monday, I was given a four day weekend. It was amazing!!! I spent most of the weekend lounging around and reading. I finished The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield (it was an AWESOME read - if you haven't gotten to it yet, you definitely need to!!), and started my journey through Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders by Vincent Bugliosi. This also means I can update my 2008 Book List!!

On Monday, since the library was closed, my friend A and I decided that we were going to have an all day FMRNS Bonus Edition Double Feature Day of Fabulousness!!! We started out the day with a delicious breakfast at IHOP (mmmmm!), and then had the first of our Double Feature. We watched The Jerk from 1979 with Steve Martin and Bernadette Peters. Hilarious!!! After that, we watched the recording of American Idol from this past Wednesday, where they cut down the contestants to the Top 24!

Then, we hit the theater where we saw the IMAX presentation of The Spiderwick Chronicles! It was a super cute movie - and it was great on the IMAX screen!!!

After the movie, we went back to A's place where we put in the second of our FMRNS Double Feature. We decided to watch Antonia's Line from 1995 with Willeke van Ammelrooy and Els Dottermans.

And even after all of that, it was only 9:00!!! So we decided to watch my favorite cheese ball CSI guy, Horatio Caine, as he saves Miami from all of the bad guys!! I love CSI: Miami, and I LOVE Horatio Caine!!! =)

And so ends the perfect loooooong weekend. When is the next one?!

P.S. Last night, A and I decided to watch The Canterville Ghost - a comedy from 1944 with Charles Laughton, Robert Young, and Margaret O'Brien. It was very fabulous and perfect for my mood - I was definitely in the mood for a comedy!!
