What a fun movie! One of the things I got to do this weekend was see Ghost Rider. I really like this song... interesting version don't you think?
Well, I'm home again and back into my normal grind.
The drive down was fast. In fact, I could not believe how fast other cars were going and I thought I was pushing it!
I had another great visit with DH. I got there about 9:30 AM on Saturday. Felt sort of strange to drive in the daylight, but had no car troubles at all. It did take me about an hour and a half to figure out the cruise control on the way. People were zooming past me like there was no tomorrow. I glad to get off the freeway and relax.
Saturday we did a bit of shopping but otherwise spent the time visiting. His daughter and her kids dropped in. The only other time I have met them was very briefly. Her daughter was shy. She's an adorable little thing. This time she walked in the door, smiled at me and said "Hi grandma!" Cracked us all up. Well, I am a grandma after all... just not her grandma.
But that's okay. I'm glad she likes me.
DH got some comedy DVDs. We watched Abbot and Costello. I had no memory of them having a variety show, so I was a bit taken aback, expecting more of their stand-up routines. They had some acts that would have been very entertaining to someone in the 50s. Acrobats and tap dancers. Neither of us were terribly impressed by them. The skits were funny though.
Mostly we watched videos. More of The Lost Room mini series that was on SciFi last summer. I am not sure if we will ever get through all of it at this rate. Its a great story, but both of us fall asleep. Its one of those movies that is dark. I mean the sets tend to be in the dark a lot. I think that contributes. Of course we also tend to watch it pretty late.
This morning we watched Ghost Rider. It was on FX. Did you know that his bike in it was based on Captain America's bike in Easy Rider? Cool how Peter Fonda was Mephistopheles in it and even commented on what a nice bike it was. I liked the song, so it's up there. Interesting version. Another interesting thing was that Sam Elliot plays a similar character to the one he plays in The Big Lebowski. I suppose I should mention that it starred Nicolas Cage as Johnny Blaze. Fun movie.
The weekend ended with the Superbowl. Congratulations to The Saints! Both teams played well. It was a good game that could have gone either way. But it was the first time The Saints have made it to a Superbowl, so it was nice that they won. DH was rooting for them. Naturally, I was too. Fun stuffs.
Then I had a quick diner and hit the road home. Thankfully, there were no car problems at all this time. DH is going to call around and see what kind of deal he can find selling my Prism.
Hopefully the Aspire will be done soon and I'll be back behind my own wheel again. Cheaper on gas too. I've missed my little clown car. I miss my independence.
So it was a fun weekend. Relaxed and low key.
I can't ask for anything better. As always, DH was great company and sent me home smiling. Now I'm ready to get back to the stuff of my everyday life.
Have a great Monday.
