It's Monday again...

Wouldn't it be wonderful to just have one more day of weekend? *sigh* It is always hard for me to get up on Mondays and face the week. My tummy hurts a little this morning too, so not sure what's going on there.

G and I had a great weekend together. We decided on a whim to go see the movie "I am Legend" on Friday night. I think I mentioned wanting to see the movie at about 9:45, so we looked it up and the last showing at the theater near us was at 10:10. We quickly got ready and sped out to the theater, only to see that the 10:10 showing (as well as the two or three before it) were sold out. We headed home, found another theater, and drove a little farther to see the midnight showing of it at North Hills. I don't even know that I can remember the last movie I went to see that was so packed. Usually there is that two or three seat buffer zone between you and a stranger, but not this time. Almost every seat was filled, and it was midnight! As for the movie, it was well worth the ticket price.

Basically, a miracle cure for cancer creates a virus that kills 90% of the people on earth in a very short time. Something like only 1% of people were immune and the other 9% became some sort of dark zombie type creature that only comes out at night and feeds on human flesh. Living in New York City alone with his dog for three years, Will Smith's character is still doing research, looking for a cure and trying to avoid the creatures living in the darkness. I won't give away more than that, but I will say that it was probably the most terrifying movie I have seen in years. But more than that, I also cried the way I do at sappy dramas, which is very rare for a horror movie. It really was an excellent film and I highly recommend it to anyone who can stand make-you-jump terrifying.

The rest of our weekend was fun, like usual, but like I said, it's Monday and G just left for work. I so wish that we could just be together all day everyday. At least I know that after this week, he'll have the next two weeks off for the holidays. Saturday we'll head to Georgia to stay with my parents over Christmas, and I am very much looking forward to it.

Keep your eye out for the new finalists over at Brava today. It's not going to be me, but I can't wait to read them and see how they compare. I wonder if they'll be announding some next week, with it being Christmas Eve and all? Guess we'll find out soon enough.
