This afternoon, I went to the Starving Artists Show at Mount Mary College with my friend Danielle.
We had only been once before and I honestly can say that like that other time, about 90% of the booths are ones I am not that interested in.
I like the jewelry, glass blown items, some of the pottery, and photography, but the other booths don’t really interest me. That is only my opinion though and I think it is cool to see artists from all over the area that work really hard at making what they love. We didn’t spend a lot of time there and didn’t purchase anything, but it was fun to walk around and visit with each other by seeing the various booths.
I came pretty close to buying a pretty bowl, but decided that it wasn’t really deep enough for cereal or yogurt and then it was pointless to pay $7 for a pretty bowl when I wouldn’t be able to use it that much.
After an Aldi run, I ran home to relax a bit, meditate, and read a little of Farm City and then we were off to the movie Contagion.
I really enjoyed the plot of the movie and I liked all of the actors and actresses in it. I also like movies about health, science, and viruses, so maybe it was just my opinion. It has received good reviews so far though.
Jude Law’s character is a blogger and one of the scientists says to him, “A blog isn’t writing. It’s graffiti with punctuation.” There were a lot of blog references in there and Craig would laugh every time a reference to blogging came up.
Once the movie was over, I really felt like pulling out my Burt’s Bees hand sanitizer and using it! So, I posed with it by the movie poster.
I’m actually going to try to cut back on the number of blog posts I write every week or make them shorter. Maybe it was the movie and the obsessive nature Jude Law’s character had towards his blog, but I feel like I am missing out on other aspects of life because I am constantly on the computer writing the blog or looking at other people’s blogs. Does anyone else go through these periods where they feel the same way? I have piles of magazines and many books to get through. I have a husband and cats who I want to spend quality time with every day. So, I’ll blog when I feel like it and when I feel like doing other things, I’ll do those instead and won’t post.
