Random

This was the first weekend in months that I didn't have ten hundred places to go and things to do. It was a weekend of pink pajamas and purple socks and the aim of remaining in this quite stylish getup for as long as humanly possible. Though not a 100% success, I'm still quite pleased with what I spent it doing:

1. Watching two entire discs of Gilmore Girls Season 1.

2. Celebrating my nanowrimo win by re-reading the story and despising it to an unholy degree and telling myself NOT to throw it into a burst of flames though my personal fireplace hasn't been turned on for the past four years because of the questionable nature of the floot.

3. Organizing the pantry. Its not a good sign when your spouse opens the pantry to procure a pretzel and yells at the top of his lungs OH MY GOD- ITS CLEAN!!!

4. Drinking chai that I simmered on a stove and strained through a strainer on cold wintry nights and was oh so divine.

5. NOT watching The Namesake for which I was counting down to for months. Three months ago I actually drove to six different movie selling locations in search of it and 5 out of 6 thought it was a scifi horror thriller, why? I do not know. At any rate, curiously upon purchasing it, I have yet to stick into my dvd player and actually watch it.

LOL! Aisha, your day sounds pretty much like mine (we were snowed in!) except that I didn't really accomplish much in my pjs and socks. Instead, I read 'someone's looong' reply ;) (to which I have yet to reply) and I finally got around to purchasing a gift through an online registry for an upcoming wedding in 2 weeks (no not mine! lol!)

Other than that, it was a pretty quiet day.

Congrats on the Nanowrimo win! Yes, simmered chai is comforting, especially on a cold day!

I watched Namesake (don't worry, I won't spoil it for you), I thought it was a rather slow movie but I liked it! Interested to know what your thoughts are about the movie!

Enjoy the rest of the evening!

Later!

Glad to know we both had similar lazy days. I think Sundays should be just that though, perhaps you can work on some legislation in this area, ensuring lazy Sundays for all?? :)

And Namesake, i watched it a few months ago: http://aishaiqbal.blogspot.com/2007/05/abcd.html and that's my review on it :) I loved it, but yeah it is a slower flick.

Oh! It's on DVD now?! I didn't even know... I need to go rent it. I didn't used to be a big movie watcher but lately I have seen so many movie I want to see and DVDs I want to own.

I walked around WalMart yesterday with the 25th special edition of the digitally remastered "The Last Unicorn". I finally forced myself to put it back.

I had chai the other day. It was nice... I just had hot cocoa right now though.

Totally feeling you on #2.

Ignore my grammar mistakes in the first paragraph. They're atrocious and I'm ashamed. LOL.
