I had a particularly great weekend. It was very low-key and involved a lot of mindless entertainment.
After my 8am class Saturday (yes, I am the genius that signed up for an 8am Saturday class :D), I played a boatload of World of Warcraft
until about 6pm. I decided to level a Hunter for PVP and I got her to about level 43 ... which is pretty good for 7ish hours of playing ha-ha. I am actually hoping to get her to level 60 today so that I can boost her to 90. Probably won't get that far, but I'll try.
Afterward, we decided to spend the weekend at my brother DP's house. I enjoy going there because he's got a huge wall-screen for his entertainment center. It's like being at the movie theater, ha-ha. I saw a couple of movies I've never seen before.
I'm a pretty big fan of New Girl
, and I had no idea these two had made a movie. We were scrolling through my brother's box (it has all kinds of movies on it, even those still in theaters--though those are usually bad quality) ... and neither one of us had seen this so we put it on. It was stupid. Down right stupid ... and yet, I laughed at some parts so it wasn't completely idiotic. That's what I expected from this movie. Their personalities in this film are identical to the ones on the show...though I think "Coach"'s (Wayans) personality was slightly more original. I was also surprised to see Nina Dobrev (Vampire Diaries
) in this. Her personality was also a lot like the one in the show. It's weird that I find her to be a good/decent actress in Vampire Diaries
but in this I found her so fake and horrible ... I don't get it. If you want something really dumb to watch that's kinda funny (one scene I do have to admit had me crying from laughing so hard ... and that scene saves this from getting a 1 star) ... this is the movie for you :D I give it a 2 stars out of 5.
I finally saw this movie. It was actually pretty great. I saw it alone, at like 2am, and I admit it made me jump a few times and increased my heart rate a bit. There were a few great twists to the movie that really made it enjoyable. The film is pretty much about a young woman whose life mission is to prove the paranormal doesn't exist (ghosts, etc). Yet, when she's called to an all boys school to disprove it's haunting and find the boy truly responsible, she's met with forces that will make her question her own beliefs. It's truly gripping and 'thrilling'. Highly recommended, especially if you like BBC's work. I give it a 5 out 5 stars.
Those were the two new movies we watched.
Sunday was my brother NP's birthday. We made dinner at DP's house, and my godmother and uncle came over to join us. DP and I started watching season one of Arrow
, and I have to admit, the show is much better than I imagined it would be. I thought it was going to be another 'chick' type of show, but even my brother was really into it. They do a really good job of keeping each episode action packed and the storyline flows very smoothly with his flash backs. Somehow they do a good job of having the flashbacks move forward with the show, even though it's from the past. Definitely enjoying it... hopefully I can catch up this coming weekend.
NP joined us about 5pm, and we had his birthday cake (which was very delicious--Vanilla with peanut butter filling and a chocolate moose topping. It was banging. Then he joined us in watching Arrow
and we got to episode 7 of season 2 before we all decided to head home around 10pm. I caught up on last week's episode of BONES
, which were both great episodes. I love BONES, and I am really enjoying Constantine.
So yeah ... it was a very laid back weekend with some great (and not so great :D) mindless entertainment.
Today I'm working on a project I have to hand in for class tomorrow night and since it's slow at work, I'm trying to get most of it done now before I head home. That way I can proof it tonight, and then again tomorrow morning before printing it lol. It's amazing the errors I can make when I type in the 'heat of the moment' or when I just want to get all the words out and not worry about how I'm getting them out. Whenever I go back to reread I always amaze myself at the failsauce :D
Anywho ... last thing I want to mention is Christmas. It may seem early, but usually by now I am completely done with my shopping for Christmas. This year I haven't even started yet. I did buy myself a couple of cute decorations for my desk at home, which I hope arrive today. Trying to get myself in the spirit so I can do some shopping before all the insanity happens in stores. I may try to hand make holiday cards this year, but I don't know if I'll have the time. I have a 12 page research paper I have to write too which is probably going to take up a chunk of my holiday weekend in the near future. UGH! Shoot meh!
It's a three-day work week for me! Which has me in all sorts of a great mood.
