I keep meaning to write this stuff down, but I oftentimes get distracted and never get around to it. This weekend was jam packed. Here's what [livejournal.com profile] doomsey and I did:

Friday:
Had dinner at my in-laws' house.

Saturday:
Went to a birthday party at a friend's house. Watched the Blackhawks game, drank wine, and had Hot Sex. The drink! Not the act! Get your mind out of the gutter! Oh...and I just tried googling it to see if I could get a picture of the bottle. Not a good idea. Let's just say that you can find it at your local liquor store and leave it at that. And for those who are curious, it tastes kind of like a Mudslide, only with more cinnamon. It's yummy if you like sweet drinks.

Sunday:
Went to my in-laws' house to celebrate what would have been [livejournal.com profile] doomsey's grandfather's 100th birthday had he still been alive. This was originally planned for Monday, but got changed at the last minute.

After dinner, [livejournal.com profile] doomsey and I headed to Scott and Aimee's house. [livejournal.com profile] doomsey fixed their computer-- turns out that it was a program that was slowing the computer down and not a virus like they had feared. We also sat and talked until about midnight. It was fun.

Monday:
In the afternoon, we invited [livejournal.com profile] doomsey's mother over to watch the latest Doctor Who and Doctor Who Confidential. Spoilers below the cut )

Went to Jason and Jori's house for horror movie night. They were showing Dead Snow-- a Nazi Zombie movie, a Zombie Nazi movie, or whatever you want to call it. [livejournal.com profile] doomsey didn't care for it, but then again, [livejournal.com profile] doomsey was never a big fan of horror movies. What I particularly liked about the film was the mixture of horror and comedy. There were also many references to Terminator, Indiana Jones, and Red Dawn. Minor spoilers below the cut )

It's been a while since I've done one of these posts....

Previous books )

8. Complete Idiot's Guide to Wicca and Witchcraft by Denise Zimmerman -- Hey! I had to get started somewhere, right? I think this book was a good overview and it gave some useful information, but there was also a bit of fluff mixed in. *cough cough* Crystals. *cough*

9. Wild Child by T.C. Boyle -- I picked this one up at the library thinking it was a novel about the wild boy of Aveyron, a feral child who was reputed to have been raised by wolves. Once I got the book home, I discovered that it was a collection of short stories. "The Lie" and "Sin Dolor" were enjoyable yet disturbing. I also liked "Wild Child" because I thought it was a good portrayal of what happens to children when they're exposed to languages too late.

10. Drawing Down the Moon by Margot Adler -- I'm surprised that I managed to find this at my local library. I've had to request many of these books through inter-library loan. Anyhow, what I liked about this book was that the opening chapters did a good job describing the history and evolution of both Wicca and other Neo-Pagan movements. (Also, I had no idea that there was a link between sci-fi and paganism, but it kind of makes sense now that I think about it. And at the time the book was published, there were three well-known sci-fi authors who were also pagan. One Adler named because she was "out" but she didn't want to out the other two).

10. The Spiral Dance by Starhawk -- [livejournal.com profile] fuzzyscribble recommended that I read this book when I expressed an interest in Paganism. Good choice. I got it from the library using inter-library loan (I've been doing that for a ton of books lately). After reading it, I decided that this would be a nice book to own since I wanted to try some of the exercises in it so I purchased both this and and Scott Cunningham's Guide for the Solitary Practitioner from Amazon.

11. From Dead to Worse by Charlaine Harris -- This is the eighth book in the Sookie Stackhouse series. Honestly, I was kind of luke-warm on this book. The plot seemed all over the place to me and I got the impression that she was setting things up for the next book in the series, Dead and Gone. Oh...and while I'm on the topic, I bought Dead and Gone in paperback while I was shopping yesterday. I plan to read it on the plane to and from San Francisco.
