Wow, I’ve had an incredible birthday this year! First two wonderful, exciting covers. Second, two fun movies: Wolverine and Star Trek. Third, a monsterless night–they went to spend a night with Papa on the farm and had so much fun they didn’t want to come home. Dad estimates they caught nearly 50 perch, and one bass so large that it broke Middle Monster’s cane pole. They rode horses until they were exhausted (the horses, that is), had a bonfire, caught fireflies, and saw their distant cousins tonight.
But the icing on the cake for this birthday: dinner at Mythos. If you read Dear Sir, I’m Yours next month, you’ll see the restaurant mentioned. It’s a real place in Joplin MO and has incredible food. I was so stuffed that I could barely stay awake for the drive home.
Star Trek was fantastic. I’m such a goob that I bawled in the first five minutes. I cheered. I clapped. So much fun. Once, I even swayed in my seat and bumped shoulders with That Man. See, when we were kids, Sis and I would stumble and fall all about the house, pretending that we were in the middle of an Enterprise crash.
Wolverine was fun but not nearly as good as Star Trek. It left me feeling sad and dissatisfied.
We also watched There Will Be Blood last net via Netflix. That Man fell asleep. I wish I had. I hated the way it ended and was mad I wasted two hours of my life watching it.
All in all, this has been an incredible holiday weekend. My allergies are acting up so I’m taking Benedryl, and it’s really kicking my fanny. I can hardly stay awake. I’m miserably behind on MayNoWriMo, but I hope to get some words made tomorrow and Monday.
Hope you’re all having a terrific Memorial Day weekend!

Glad you had such a great Birthday Joely!
I was grinning throughout the entirety of Star Trek and that is very RARE for me. *le sigh* J.J. Abrams made me SO happy. Sequel = DO WANT!
“Wolverine was fun but not nearly as good as Star Trek. It left me feeling sad and dissatisfied.”
Yeah, that was my general impression too. I mean, naked Hugh Jackman was nice and Ryan Renolds was funny, but while the movie was fun it wasn’t…EPIC, I guess, is the word I’m looking for.
Good luck getting caught up with MayNoWriMo.
Heh, that’s always what I remember about watching the original Star Trek series — you and me and Mom lurching all over the living room during the battle scenes. Heheh. Great times.
Ooooh, sounds wonderful…much better than mine.
I hear you about “There Will Be Blood.” Three freakin’ hours so I could here Daniel Day-Lewis scream “I drink you milkshake.” Of course, hubby makes milkshakes for the kids so I do get to use the line a lot.
Yaay for fab b-day weekend!!! I’m jealous about the movies (and glad I skipped There Will Be Blood when The Husband rented it). Won’t get to see Star Trek or Wolverine til TH gets back from an out-of-town trip… maybe next weekend… maybe…
Sorry about the allergies. 🙁 Yuck, yuck, yuck. Zyrtec and/or the cheaper knockoffs work well for me (which is good because, i’m allergic to Benedryl!), although it sometimes knocks me out for an hour or so the first couple days I take it.
Anyway, happy birthday and awesome memorial day weekend!
Happy B-Day. I want to see Wolverine just simply because it’s suppose to bring Gambit into it, he was my other favorite cartoon hero on the X-Men.
Hey, Glad you had a great birthday. I still haven’t made it to the po, but hope to get there tomorrow. Wasn’t Star Trek all sorts of awesome? 😀
