What to do, what to do

I am on my own this weekend, Mr. Arkadin having gone off on a manly man trip with some college friends. They will be manly men going whitewater rafting, bonding over beer, probably being smelly and unshaven together.

There are things I should do, like wash those dishes in the sink. Get a start on filing my personal papers. Put away laundry. Figure out how to run telephone wire along the baseboards and doorframes to the computer which has been moved across the living room, away from the telephone jack. (No, not very wise, but there was a better place for my computer desk.) Pack up stuff to take to goodwill.

Then there are things I want to do. I have dvd rentals at home of Calendar Girls, Vanity Fair, and Wives & Daughters. I could have my own British movie marathon. I need to get a travel guide for my upcoming trip to San Francisco. I have that book I need to finish for my book group. Maybe meet a friend for coffee or a movie, if I can (cough, cough) interest anybody in going out.

We'll see what happens. First, though, I'm off to get something decadent for dinner.

Wireless I say...skip the running the wires around. If I wasn't recovering from this past week at work, I would SO be there for a movie fest!

Don't do too much work around the house, enjoy your time for yourself, do a facial...soak in a hot lots of fattening stuff!

Love ya!

Ah, the bliss of male bonding...

Missed Vanity Fair at the movies :( So is it worth getting the DVD??

I only got to Calendar Girls, where I was shocked to find out that the man who played Helen Mirren's husband is Ciaran Hinds. He looks rather different from his Captain Wentworth days in Persuasion.

So I still have to watch Vanity Fair, which I've put off for weeks.
