Weekend Update

I spent Friday evening and most of Saturday working on the redesign for this site. I got a lot done, but I still have the portfolio section to do. That section will be a fair amount of work. Perhaps I’ll just put a “coming soon” note up until I’ve got it done. Not only do I want to do an overhaul of the layout of the portfolio, I seriously need to update the content, which is probably about 7 years old.

Saturday evening I headed out to Jay & Lisa’s and enjoyed a lovely BBQ’d steak dinner. We watched Up and the first episode of Season 3 of the BBC Robin Hood (where I seriously wanted to take a pair of shears to Guy’s hair – and I’m normally fond of longer hair on dudes). It’s was the first time any of us had seen Up and I was glad to have finally had a chance to see it. It’s not something I’d own though. I thought the parts that were touching were really well done, and there were some really cute/funny moments, but they did go too far over the top with the dogs that could fly planes. I’m sorry, but my suspension of disbelief will only go so far.

Sunday was a quiet day in. I cleaned my apartment, made stew, and then watched the Golden Globes. I normally don’t like cleaning on weekends, but I’m hosting Book Club tonight. I’d picked Girl With A Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier. It’s only 250 pages and was a book I quite enjoyed. In 2003 they made a movie based on this book, starring Colin Firth and Scarlette Johanson. I’ve rented it so we can watch it. I wonder what people thought of it. I hope I can fit everyone in…
