Seems I can't update regularly lately! lol. You'd think being here at home I'd manage to, but I've been busy trying to fight myself out of vacation mode all week...it's a fight to wake up early, to get work done, to workout, to make yummy meals. lol. I think the sleeping in this weekend will recharge me, and Monday should be easy-peasy. Here's hoping I can get back at er!
I have started designing my portfolio website/updating my demo reel, though (which means sifting through the last 2 years of work! agh! A little overhwleming...) and was drawing some of the elements for my website yesterday (fun!). This also means I need to learn to web design, which I kinda know the basics of, so it should be a good challenge! I switched the shop over to it's new location this week, too. I have a ton of other stuff to share, too, including vacation pictures, that I'll be updating over this week (I promise - like, for reals this time!).
Anyhoo - saw "The Time Travellers Wife" yesterday, a movie that I was both dreading and curious about, cuz the book has been my read-over-and-over again favorite for the last many years. I had to see it, but didn't really want to see it, but did want to see it - you know?
I'm not really an Eric Bana fan (he's just not Henry to me, dude), but I love Rachel...she was great in the movie! They had zero chemistry, as far as I was concerned, too...lol. The movie skips a lot of important back-story, of course, and the psychological stuff. Not to mention, the history of Claire and Henry is only touched on, and it seems to focus on the downside of their relationship more than the love part of it all, which really sucked! If I'm thinking 'all they do is fight! Why are they together?', there's something amuck from the book. lol. All in all, it was pretty good, though...and touching, of course. But the book is a zillion times better on every level!
(I did, however, love the set designs - Claire's first apartment is lovely with it's crackling walls, retro furniture, and bright blue couch. :) And the house is gorgeous...so lovely!! Make sure you peek around at their homes when you watch it!!)
Have you seen the movie? What did you think?
Anyhoo - off I go to work a little, fill an order, stop by the post office, burn some cds/make atc's for a fun swap, order promo stuff, upload photos, go out for dinner with hubby & see "Inglorious Basterds" - love Sundays!! :) Have a happy one!
