What happened to the weekend??
Friday night we saw Brave (the new Pixar film), and it was fabulous. I managed to avoid too many spoilers, so I really enjoyed it. Honestly, when a new Pixar film comes out, I don't even really need a trailer...just tell me when to show up. So, I generally will watch the "teaser" trailer (the first one that comes out, that only tells you the concept..."Hey, this film's set in ancient Scotland!") Then I try to avoid any others, because they contain spoilers, no matter how subtle. I loved the short before the movie, too.
The rest of the weekend was a whirlwind of never-ending excitement encompassing laundry, errands, and general exhaustion. Also, I may have a slight "Scramble with Friends" addiction and need an intervention (I'm "lottloft" if you want to start a game with me =). I did manage to get some stitching in, including a start (finally!) on the "Waiting for Christmas" stitch-along designed by Manuela in Italy.
Now, my Italian is not very good (i.e., "nonexistent"), but I'm pretty sure that even if you miss the deadline for this first part (June 30th), you can still sign up for the remaining two parts. By the way, I don't think Google translate is really great at Italian, either....
I must say that this week is not off to a stellar start...I was an hour late for work (well, later would be more accurate) because the paramedics had to remove a woman from the MARTA tracks a station away from where I get off. I hope she's OK! I couldn't find any news articles about her condition!
Edited to add: I pushed the "publish" button too soon...I meant to link to Chiara's blog! She has helpfully commented below, and her blog is where I found out about the "Waiting for Christmas" SAL. You should check out her blog, anyway, because it's great. =)
