I'm slowly recovering from the pollen haze! Last week I had to go to a two-day conference in addition to keeping up with work, so I worked a lot of extra hours and was exhausted by the weekend...Friday I slept 'til almost 11!!!! Saturday we got up "early" and saw The Hunger Games. It was fantastic. The only real criticism I have is with the cinematography. They employed the "unsteady steady cam," which I really hate. I hoped it would get a little better once we got into the Games, and it did...except for action sequences. In addition to being unsteady, they were close-cropped and quick-cut. That's pretty much the three strikes of action scenes for me. The only saving grace was that these weren't epic action sequences with well-choreographed martial artists dueling...these were short, bloody incidents of preteens slashing at each other like animals. In other words...quick and unclear was actually preferable in this case! So that aside, I thought the script was great, the acting was great, set dressing and costumes were phenomenal.... After the movie and a quick lunch, we went to the annual ADAC sample sale. There are always some outrageous items there...and occasionally we get great bargains, like a $30 dupioni silk duvet cover with shams or our leather recliner. This year, though, there was nothing for us.
Sunday after church and grocery shopping we walked around a bit on campus to enjoy the gorgeous Spring flowers.
I'm going to have to do an epic March Madness catch-up post!!! Also, tomorrow is my blogiversary, so I'll have to come up with a good giveaway!!
