i'm going to see the hunger games today.
i'm still unsure. i love those books so much. i know the movie made a lot of money over the weekend, but i haven't heard anyone say how good they are or what they thought. the way the movie Looks is so different than how it looked in my head. even the few clips i've accidentally seen have sort of taped over they way i saw it in my head. i can't even remember how i imagined katniss looked. i'm afraid my favorite images from the book (like gale and katniss sitting on the hill outside the fence) are going to be gone forever after i see the movie.
but i'm going to see it anyway. how can i not? and i'm going to take hannah even though she hasn't read any of the books. i was going to make her until she pointed out her images have already been formed by the movie, whether she sees it or not, because of all the bits we've seen. so we're both going.
we're going today to make up for the sad fact we're not seeing my sister and new baby. they had planned to come to kc to see a doctor today, but that fell through and i didn't find out till yesterday, so we are bummed. have i mentioned how i hate living so far away from the baby girls? i do. i won't see any of them again until easter weekend. too far away!
sometime last week, d, h and i sat down in danny's study together. it was time to renew our groovegarden.com url and it seemed like a good time for each of us to get the url's we've been wanting. danny and hannah both had to settle for an extension they didn't love, but lucky for me, shellycentral was still available as a .com. !! lucky me. so it'll still be a while before danny gets our new server set up and ready to host a website, but it's a step closer and that makes me happy.
i was thinking last night about justin hall, and his links.net from oh so long ago. i thought about the early days of the internet of having a web site and how i loved it. i'd like to write more about that time someday. thinking of it made me want a web site to post all my things again. you know, i should go ahead and start making it now so that when danny finally does get it going, i'm all ready to post it. or upload it. or whichever verb you like. that would be wise and ambitious. we'll see what happens.
you may have noticed - you probably didn't, but you may have noticed that yesterday was project life tuesday and i didn't post anything. if you're really on the ball and/or really into project life, you may have noticed i didn't post anything the tuesday before that either. i don't even know what to say. the pl binder is sitting on the art table with spring break week half laid out all over it. last week's photos haven't even been chosen or printed. i'm just not feeling it. i'm sure i will though, soon, and i'll be all caught up.
sometime, too, i'd like to write some more bits about being bipolar. how even when it's not like the lady flight attendant who went all whack on her flight last week, it's still a part of life. i am definitely always trying to monitor "where i'm at" mood wise, and where i think i'm headed next, and how to not go there. i thought about it especially after reading this blog post from the super fun artist, samantha kira, but i want to write my own thoughts about it as well.
i'm going to go outside with daisy for a while now. i am still grateful and in love with the amazing weather. in. love. the rainy bits remind me and hannah of great britain and the sunny parts are just amazing. especially for march. thanks mother nature, i am off to enjoy your gift now!
