Somehow we escaped the forecasted snow. I’m not sure how or why but I am so glad. I was thrilled when I awoke Saturday morning to see only rain. Not that I escaped all damage brought by the recent cold weather, I’m sure I lost plants to the freeze, but it will be a bit before I know what the damage is, dreary mood brought on by the dreary weather and what should have been a great weekend at the winery was terrible because of the weather. But today the sun is out the forecast calls for warmer weather.
I am totally blaming the dreary weather for the temporary insanity that made me agree to accompany Nate to see Grindhouse. Why I thought it would be a good idea to go see a horror movie featuring zombies and some crazy guy in a car, when I know I don’t like horror movies is beyond me. I think I may be saw 10% of Planet Terror, zombies really freak me out, so I spend most of the movie hiding behind my coat and watching Nate’s reaction to what was happening on the screen. I also made him stay on the phone with me when I got home while I checked the house for them. Plus the gore, ewwww! I do usually like Rodriguez’s films and I never thought I’d say this but I like Tarantino’s movie, Death Proof, better. A bit slow at times, but Kurt Russell was great. Of course, Nate loved and recommends everyone see it, I’m not gonna do that. The idea behind it is cool and they did a great job, but I can’t recommend needless gore and scariness.
