Village Sampler -PS

Hello all,

The weekend was great, mom bought me plenty of plants and we shopped alot too. I am finally able to blog about the big Village Sampler by Prarie Schooler I have been stitching for her since February, here it is all framed:
and here is mom with it:





MyFi XM radio

Yesterday was Ian and my 2nd anniversary, I of course, have no $$ to get him anything till pay day in a couple of weeks, But he - mister overtime- went and got me the XM myFi radio....told me he was going to change my fan belts yesterday while I was at school and instead mounted the antenna and car mount for it. I was totally not expecting it cause of the price...and he has shown reluctance to add me to the XM bill. This one has its own battery so you can listen to it like a walkman...I am soo excited to have it for workouts and driving around.

We did go to Olive Garden for dinner and then saw Sin City at the movies (how romantic!).

I have very mixed feelings about this movie. If you don't like the bloody, violent edginess of Quinten Tarentino like style...then don't go see this movie (director is Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez) . If you are a graphic/comic book lover....then this movie is a must see for the visual presentation. If you want to see Frodo (Elijah Wood) as the creepiest character I think outside a true horror movie...then go see this movie.

I thank god this movie was not in full color...or I would be having nightmares of SE7EN quality...of which I will forever regret watching. But the controlled use of editing and color made it palatable and within a few months I will be able to see it again.

I wanted to see Sin City because I've had a crush on Elijah Wood since I was a little girl and saw him in Radio Flyer, and I like Alexis Bledel from Gilmore Girls as well. I HATED Kill Bill, though, and now I don't know...maybe we'll just have to wait for it to be released on DVD and we'll get it from Netflix!
