Took it easy this weekend. Watched quite a few movies:
: Loved it. Didn't need the nudity but the movie was very cute. What was particularly amusing was the politics and how they characterized Brittain's prime minister and the US president. Too funny. Also, how at the end, in a collage of pictures of people, they had a hijabbed woman kissing her daughters and put that center. The resemblence of two characters to Hillary Clinton and Monica L. were also too obvious to not be on purpose. Very funny movie though.
: Hilarious. I haven't laughed outloud at a movie that much in a long time. I have horrendous upstair neighbors so i could totally relate to this movie.
I wanted to go see Before Sunset
as I've been waiting years for the sequel (this is the sequel to Before Sunrise) to come out but didn't make it. Watched these instead since M. had some friends in town and all of us hung out. We had tapas
which i haven't had much of since Spain. Yum. Nice afternoon with them. A three hour meal and then gelato. Didn't do much else this weekend. Lazy. I did manage to read another Surah of the Qur'an.
This week is going to be busy. I need to finish an editing project, write a review for one book, finish reading another book for another review and start a third book. I also need to go grocery shopping (read as: shopping at many different stores - indian/paki store for spices, halaal meat market,Whole Foods for fruit and veggies etc.). I'm going to try out some new recipes this week. Should be fun. Got the pictures back from Niagra Falls and they turned out great...especially the ones with the rainbow...was looking at them again this morning.
