DVDers and Tacos and Japanese Movies and Hollendaise Sauce

My parents came over this weekend for my birthday. They bought me a DVD player. I knew they would! I am so spoiled. It's something I never would have bought for myself, not for a million years. Just like the TV they bought me. And last year they bought my dining room table for me. Man, if it weren't for my parents, my life would be a lot more luxury-free.

I made tacos! They were very good. I have more left over. I shall have a taco for lunch today, in just a few minutes. Man am I hungry.

My mom and I went to the local Blockbuster to rent a DVD. I never watch movies. My parents rent movies constantly. Every time I saw one I'd like to see, my mom had already seen it. Every one! Finally (we were working backwards, from the end of the alphabet) we got to The Bourne Identity. Well actually she also hadn't seen The Man Who Wasn't There, but we decided we weren't in the mood for that.

I liked it. The Bourne Identity. It made me want to have sex. A lot. Particularly with Matt Damon, but you know. I'd be willing to settle. This must be why I don't watch movies.

Also my mom said she would buy me a DVD, so I picked a pre-viewd The Royal Tennenbaums. Criterion Collection for only $9.99! After they left I watched the movie. I'd only seen it once before. And then I decided to download the entire soundtrack, and fix up the files, and make myself a cd. I was up til 4:30am on Saturday, by myself. Weird.

On Sunday I went to kaufie and quba's and Maggie and Sean made breakfast. Like, an eight-part breakfast. It was delicious. I had not had Eggs Benedict before. It seems like WAY too much work, though. Maybe for just two people, but for that crowd, forgettaboutit. My favorite part were the crepes. And the bacon. Mmm, bacon. Oh, and the mimosas. Mmm, champagne.

Then I went to the Rag Shop and bought more yarn -- I have made my mom a scarf and my dad a scarf, and now I want a scarf, by George! I feel silly because there are so many different stitches and patterns that I could learn in crocheting, but . . . I really do just want a couple scarves. Maybe when it gets warmer I'll be more in the mood to experiment and make, I dunno, pot holders or something.

Then I went to see Rashomon at the Prince with Jeff. It was pretty good.

Then I went home and crocheted. I'm making a superlong scarf. Only two inches wide, but hopefully something like ten feet long. They had 'em in Delia*s. I'm making my own damn superlong scarf.

Oh and also we got tickets to Bonnaroo. Jeff, Michelle and I are going, at the very least. It will be my summer vacation. I'm looking forward to it, a lot.

That's it.
