M Weekend

So just when you get a chance at a three day weekend, wouldn't you know it, I'm sick. I felt okish when I got up Saturday morning. Pulled on some clothes and prepared for the beginning of a slow three days. We went to get our hair cut, went out to NFM to order our bedroom set. Felt ok. Decided to have some lunch before we continued our journey to Oak Park Mall. While sitting at John's newest favorite place to eat, TGIFriday's, it hit me. Like a ton of bricks it hit me. I wasn't ok. No ish about it. I needed to lay down and in a hurry. I stumbled out to the car and managed to drag myself through two more stores that had to be gone to before my eyes could close. Laid down Saturday evening got up sometime Monday late late morning. Slept almost through. Coughed, hacked, moaned, groaned for what felt like days. Today I'm feeling better. Not bad actually. Theraflu caplets are my friend.

While sitting around waiting to feel better we watched a few movies yesterday. John got me the Blu Ray versions on Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire (my favorite of the movies btw) and Casino Royale (which is my favorite of the Bond movies and as well it should be. It's plainly far superior to all the others). I love this Bond flick. If there is anyone you'd want on your side, it's James.
Also, if I could, I would wish to be even half as wildly amazing as Vespre (Eva Green) in this movie.
But M is the true inspiration in this film. She's bold, funny, smart and beautiful. I'll be Eva now and M later on. Hopefully...

I love Judi Dench. She's in another of my all time favorite movies ever, Chocolat. She's done everything and can be anybody. Really she's inspiring to me just because she's so strong yet still remains to caring and aware of herself. She's not brittle when it counts and really, would you want to meet her in a dark alley if she was pissed at you? M or not.
