Most of the past weekend was spent camped out on a couch somewhere, either here or at Karen's, sewing or pinning or doing something crafty. And watching a lot of movies.
Friday night - sewing sequin strings onto the skirt and watching "The Hebrew Hammer." Meh. It was okay, and downright funny in parts, but I don't much care for Andy Dick. Loved him in News Radio, but not much fond of his post-NR stuff. A good movie if you want an over-the-top Jewish comedy - it's kind of like Shaft, only more kosher.
Saturday - mostly working on the bra, which took all day. Not many movies were watched until I got to Karen's, where she, Kris and I crashed. Despite all the pinning and basting and fiddling with costume bits, it was a fairly PG evening. The highlight was Kris telling me I have a nice ass. Awww! Thanks! We watched "To Wong Fu, Thanks For Everything! Julie Newmar" (I must confess that the first time I ever saw this movie, I didn't know who Julie Newmar was, and I thought she was another drag queen. Sorry.) We started watching "True Lies" but Kris and I were really tired and left early, around 1am.
Sunday - finished the bra, including sequins, almost finished the skirt, and watched a ton of movies.
- Wilby Wonderful - a nice little Canadian film. It was filmed in Nova Scotia, and the atmosphere was perfect - I knew exactly what the temperature was like, and how the air would smell, there being considerable evidence of recent rainfall, plus the town being beside the ocean.
- New Waterford Girl - one of my all-time favourites, again for the atmosphere. The village in the movie reminds me of the village near where my dad is from, and again, I know what it's like there. Nicholas Campbell is excellent as the father.
- The Love Letter - my other all-time favourite movie, if only because I occasionally like sappy romance movies.
- The Piano Teacher - Gah. Did not like this one. At all. Since it was in French, I ended up knitting while watching this since I needed to sit near the TV to read the subtitles. It was cruel, it was sad, it was angry, and the last scene made absolutely no sense.
