Hubby had the day off. We watched “The Proposal” in the downtown Century 20. The movie was hubby’s choice, which came as a real surprise to self (Ryan Reynolds over Johnny Depp? Since when???)
But, anyhoo, self enjoyed the movie. Sandy Bullock was very funny (and actually goes full-frontal nekkid! Shock! It pleases self to report that this is one Hollywood actress who has apparently resisted the lure of having breast implants!)
Ryan Reynolds is cute as all get-out. And he’s funny, too. And has a great bod, as anyone who’s seen his Entertainment Weekly cover can attest (It was pretty hard to miss, in all the airports self found herself in, a few days ago. No wonder he became Mr. Scarlett Johansson)
In addition, Mary Steenburgen, who plays Ryan’s mom, still has a great figure!
So, movie was fun. Son declined to go with us, too bad. Self got a large bag of popcorn and a tray of nachos. There were five previews, including four for movies that are opening in September. Now, that makes self sad, for that reminds self that Fall is just around the corner. The previews were for “Julie & Julia” (Self didn’t like the book, but the movie looks like it could be better than the book?!# With Meryl Streep playing Julia Child, and Amy Adams playing Julie Powell, how can the movie not work?), “Old Dogs” (Travolta and Robin Williams, making like real old dogs, but the movie includes as well Travolta’s real-life wife, Kelly Preston), “Fame” (the re-boot), and a really scary-looking movie directed by Martin Scorsese, “Shutter Island,” that has Leonardo di Caprio in an insane asylum (not, mind you, as an inmate).
After the movie, hubby and self did usual stroll to Peet’s, and then took a look at the menus of a few small places on Broadway: found out that a taqueria sells lengua tacos! Next to it was a Persian Kebab take-out place. Pickles, the women’s clothing store next to Crouching Tiger, has a sale. It was hawwtt.
Tomorrow is the annual Redwood City Parade (sure to be packed). Self also heard on the radio that tomorrow night, the concert at Shoreline will all be music from such sci-fi movies as “Star Wars”, “Star Trek” and so forth and so on! Super!
After getting back home, checked mail: (form) rejection, from “Salamander.” Self laughed, she couldn’t help it. She had somehow expected it all along.
Stay tuned, dear blog readers, stay tuned.
