Yay! Enjoy, Merry!!!

You deserve to take it easy......I have very few weekends that are truly "weekends" as I usually work every day including Saturday and Sunday.

Everybody on a bus, singing carols as we go from place to place!

OOOH !! Carol singing ! That would be awesome !! I have never gotten to go Caroling ever...!

Well, it's more like listening to television! I look up now and then. When we're watching films downstairs, I work on a scrap afghan using a stitch pattern that calls for working into spaces rather than into stitches, so I can crochet in the dark!

Here's the afghan I'm working on (it's a kit from Herrschner's). I liked the combination of squares and ripples, and I couldn't resist the pattern name! It's a bit of a pain because there are so many color changes---there are dozens of tails to weave in.

Instead of going to Louisville or Detroit, I convinced all of you to just fly here to Indianapolis. That way we were in between Santa Claus, Indiana and Bronners. Then Instead of renting hotel rooms, all of you stayed here at my apartment building since all of my neighbors have spare bedrooms and air mattresses. It was like a giant sleep over that involved setting up a TV in the yard for Christmas movies and Caroling in the middle of summer. Then we went out and rented a couple of passenger vans and made an overnight trip to Santa Claus, IN. Then we came back here for a few days show I could show you around town. Then we made another overnight trip up to Bronner's and camped out in tents in Meceka's front yard. It was a blast and a little weird. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
Maybe we should set a date....

This conversation is followed by an hour of shooting, explosions, crashes, and fights. Then there is a 15 minutes conversation where everyone laughs or someone is captured and interrogated, followed by another hour of shooting, explosions, crashes, and fights. It all concludes with a big kiss at the end (or a handshake).

If this is your kind of movie, it is awesome! I really enjoyed it....and so did Wifey. The only difference in my favorite movie and her favorite movie is that is has to have a good looking leading man like me (or Gerard Butler, Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Daniel Craig, etc).
throw in a few people spontaneously breaking out in song and dance and it will be complete!
