Happy Friday! This has been a week. I got strep throat, a flat tire (which is hideously expensive to repair because I bent the rim), and missed three days of work. However, it's all good. I have antibiotics, it doesn't hurt quite so bad to swallow, and the lady in the dealership parts department found me a wheel for about a third of the cost.
I am very excited that I get to see the National Theatre Live screening of Coriolanus in late February. I hadn't planned to go, because I wouldn't have anyone to go with. Then, I ended up mentioning the screening to the teacher at work (with whom I shared the Cookie Monster Debacle.) She majored in drama, and likes Shakespeare (even was in some Shakespearean productions) and so we decided to go together. A twitter-friend saw the live screening and she said it's powerful, so now I'm impatiently waiting. I've seen Ralph Fiennes' movie version of Coriolanus, so I'm excited to get to see a different version.
My husband keeps giving me a hard time about going all the way to Denver to see a videotaped play, but that's okay. I'm tough! And, he's only teasing. I think. He's actually watched part of the Hollow Crown, and just last weekend remarked that he needs to see the last two, so he's coming around. Boy 2 also keeps asking to watch "Loki Shakespeare." I put on the battle scene between Prince Hal and Harry Percy for him and Boy 1, figuring it wasn't any worse than Lord of the Rings. They did enjoy it, and even understood some of the language.
Last week's funniest photo was:
I must warn you all, I got a little carried away with the pictures this week. I just kept adding them on. I hope you don't mind. So, here they are!
|This isn't so much funny, but the owl is awesome!|
|Poor thing! It needs some help!|
|It looks so earnest and solemn, and has no clue what's going on.|
|A whole scene played in my head of what would happen when it found a cricket--explosions and gunpowder included.|
|Even drawings? For real?|
|May the force be with you - or you won't get in.|
|My neighbor wrote "U.S. Male" on his mail box. If that wasn't enough to convince me I live in redneck territory, the truck with rubber bull testicles hanging from its hitch did.|
|They're all excellent, but I especially love Hawkeye's and Nick Fury's.|
And our pun!
|For my dad, because he loves geology and wanted to be a geologist.|
I've been trying to figure out which dog breed I look like. I thought maybe pointer, but I'm not sure. Maybe something with a fluffier face?
Did you find a favorite this time? Which dog breed do you think you look like?
