Hi everybody… how was your weekend? Mine was pretty good… I love hanging out at home doing nothing but sleep, watch movies and read :)
Friday night I went to the Bookclub – Robin was so nice as to host again, but except Silke and I nobody showed up … and I couldn’t help but tell them that I feel that the bookclub is falling apart. Robin’s going to move to the Bay area in two weeks, Silke will return to Germany next month, Rachel doesn’t seem to be very interested anymore and Antonia didn’t show up the last two weeks and didn’t even let anybody know.
That’s not a good sign, is it?
Saturday I slept in… what a surprise! It feels like I don’t even wake up before 11:00 a.m. anymore! ;) But maybe it was just because I really had the urge to write a letter when I came home Friday night and didn’t go to bed before 2 a.m. :) In the afternoon, I spontaneously decided to go to the hairdresser and get a haircut. I hadn’t had a haircut in months and I thought it was high time to do something about my hair… now it goes just below my shoulder and I got some layers for more volume! I like it and J likes it, too :)
Then I went to the “Used Books”-Store in Sacramento that I found on the web and bought the book (see below) that Robin recommended. I’ve already read the first two chapters and it’s really interesting!! :)
Afterward I went shopping and then cooked a great dinner with J! It’s so much fun to cook together :) In the evening we watched “The Terminal” with Tom Hanks. We were really lucky, because the Netflix movies were already in the mail on Saturday (so they were shipped within one day, which is a great turnover!! :-)) The movie was ok – honestly, I expected a little bit more, but… oh well!
Sunday was pretty lazy… except for our our workout! There is no better feeling than after you’ve worked out for an hour :) we felt great!!
After that we had some coffee, read, watched TV and after dinner we watched another DVD, a German movie called “Echte Kerle” (Regular Guys). I was really surprised to see that it was available at Netflix and since one of the main actors (Tim Bergmann) went to my school, J had to see it!! He really liked it, although I have to say that the subtitles were pretty bad at times… they didn’t capture the German humor at all! Fortunately J understands a lot of German, so he didn’t have to rely on the subtitles alone!! He really thought it was a fun movie and that it is funny that Tim Bergmann went to my school… he couldn’t help but mention that Kevin Costner went to his Elementary School (the only difference being that he wasn’t born back then :) ).
Yesterday we stayed at home and just enjoyed being with each other. We went out for dinner to “Fresh Choice” and I had a huge salad and their really delicious bread with garlic spread! *yummy* Then we went home and watched the last three episodes of Sex and the City‘s first season :-D Fortunately I’ve already ordered the second season at Netflix for next weekend!!
Then we watched “The Battles of Algiers”, a movie that Jon picked out about Algeria’s struggle of independence from France in the 1950’s. It was a good movie, but reading the subtitles the whole time was kind of exhausting and I fell asleep after half of the movie was over. I just couldn’t help it… it was getting too late ;)
So, how were your weekends, guys???
