So pumped for Downton Abbey to be on TV! I was too unmotivated to try and catch the newest season when it was playing in the UK a few months ago but now my patience/ laziness is being rewarded! I made Grant watch the season premier on Sunday and he made it through an hour before falling asleep so good for him ;-)
Caught Les Mis and Django Unchained. I saw Les Mis (I'll admit that I feel dorky abbreviating) with friends that also happen to be fellow musical theater enthusiasts and yes, some parts did send chills down my spine! I thought they did a really good job and I was singing along (in my head) the whole time. I can't tell you how many times I would sing "On My Own" in the privacy of my own bedroom in high school. I'd throw on like a newsboy cap and an oversized jacket and pretend I was Eponine -____-
Django Unchained was good too although it's really hard for me to give a sterling recommendation to any movie that's over 2 hours long. It felt long too. After the last plot twist I did not have it in me, mentally or physically, to go along with more of the story. I get antsy!
The Long Beach place is chugging along. Grant and I have been working on it, sanding down baseboards, priming, taping, spackling, and painting. To put it mildly, I'm not much of a perfectionist when it comes to doing work like this. I don't notice or care if I see an uneven wall texture only visisble in 4 PM light. Grant is a perfectionist, however, and he cuts no corners. I've been relegated to doing things like taping and unscrewing electrical plates but it's probably for the best. I am very much grateful that he notices every little detail, I'm sure it will all pay off in the end.
