Halloween time

I spent several hours each afternoon this week dragging boxes of Halloween decorations from the garage. The halls are almost completely decked in their Halloween glory.

This is a pic from several years ago and one of my favorites, I rescued Kit Kat when she was a tiny kitten. She was always small but she had a quiet attitude that our other cats respected. She was nearly 20 years old when she passed a few years ago.



Every now and then you just need to stop, sit down and watch something that makes you laugh.  Last Sunday, we did just that, we stopped and watched Simon Pegg’s Cornetto Trilogy of movies.  We started with Shaun of the Dead, continued with Hot Fuzz and finished the it off with World’s End.  I’d seen the first two before and loved them, World’s End was more of the same funny action and adventure.

We actually added the movie Paul on to the end of the trilogy which is one of my favorite silly movies.  Kristin Wiig’s character is ridiculously funny.

For a great review of the Cornetto trilogy check out my favorite geeky blog… The Geek Registry.


Looking forward


Every summer we take a week long vacation in California, in a normal year, we’d be there this weekend.  This year we had some work related changes and figured it was best to skip our trip.  Sometimes this grown up stuff is a real pain.



It turns out though that we need a little vacation.  A little planning and a couple of emails later and we are all set for a long weekend in Southern California.  One of those days will be spent hanging at the beach, some time in the water and a lot of reading and relaxing.  I cannot wait!

Do you bring books on vacation?  What have you been reading this summer?  What is your favorite format, books or eReader?

There’s a ton of stuff to do first, so I should get to it.  🙂
