fun : this & that
[Mr. Kim 604]
We turned out to be Mr. & Mrs. Boring this weekend. I think we burnt ourselves out with the photo shoot about our summer vacation ;). We aimlessly wandered around Long Island City, Greenpoint and Williamsburg. And then, we found out that the antique car show we were supposed to go to with my brother who owns this 1962 Corvette (he bought it on eBay!) is actually next weekend.

We did see the new Woody Allen movie, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, and it was very good. We usually love his movies because the city where they're shot always looks beautiful and they often feature interesting people acting kind of dopey. But, we wouldn't' recommend spending $20+ to see it in the theater - dvd should be just fine. We both agree that Javier Bardem is a real Don Juan and it's hard to believe that he was the crazy guy in the eerie No Country For Old Men. I guess that's why they call it acting?
I don't have many pictures this week because I'm working on an entry for Jude's Do Not Leave Unattended! project. The idea about what to do came fairly quickly (hmm, too quickly perhaps?), but execution is tricky, so I'm involved in a lot of mental gymnastics trying to figure it out. This is such a wonderful project as it lets us shift from interacting through bits and bytes to tangible journals that travel from person to person through the mail. The first entries are really wonderful. If you haven't already, you should sign up. Thanks Jude!
I'm also trying to get back to sewing again by starting with a new floor mat for our bathroom. The pieces have been cut, arranged, and now on to sewing. It's always interesting to see how a quilting project changes from selection of the fabrics to cutting them out to binding. It's looking very yellow/orange so we'll see what happens.
Have a great week ... new music choices on Friday, if not sooner.
