Sunday Salon

Well the summer's almost over- this is the last weekend before Labor Day- and it's been raining all weekend so far, though it looks a little better so far today. Yesterday my husband and I were glued to the TV watching the late Senator Kennedy's funeral mass, after which we took a big long nap.

Friday night we went to see "District 9," which is one of the best movies I've seen all year, either rented or in the theater. If you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend it. It's a combination of science fiction action film and political allegory. I loved the setting (how many scifi movies are set in South Africa?), the actors and the quasi-documentary style. The action sequences were typical shoot-em-up but the plot carried a lot of real emotional weight as well. I'm toying with the idea of adding movie reviews to the blog now and then; what do you think?

I'm not quite sure what today holds. I'll go to the gym this afternoon, and maybe treat myself to a bookstore visit later today or tonight. Either way, I'm sure books and reading will play some part in my Sunday!

I have such a lot of blogging stuff to catch up on. Awards, BBAW, my giveaway winner. So I'm going to work on some of that stuff as well. What about you?
