I’ve been pretty busy and lazy and I cannot believe I haven’t posted since Tuesday. Tuesday!! That was like 5 Mom years ago. So, Wednesday was actually a pretty laid back day, our lovely Liv turned 27 weeks old
I’m really going to miss this guy, it was a gift from Gilli *my amazing acupuncturist* and it was a major life saver for helping us get her to sleep. At least we know it’s moving to a good family, my friend Roxanne is in labor as I am writing this.
Thursday was a super busy day. Antz was off so we started early and dropped Liv off at Antz Mom’s house. We picked up Aimee in Venice and can you believe we missed Black Swan AGAIN!! I don’t know why it’s so hard for us to get to Arclight on time. Since we missed the 11:20 showing, we went to West Hollywood Target. Sigh, why do I keep going to this Target? They never have this weeks magazines, they don’t have everything on my shopping list and it’s just not one of my favorite stores. It was half-fun/half-lame shopping with Antz. He was very adament about what shouldn’t go in the cart, yet he was grabbing stuff that I wouldn’t have thought of and he kept Aimee and me on a strict schedule so we wouldn’t miss the 12:30 Black Swan showing. We got to the theater, this time with plenty of time and it was surprisingly full. I guess it was so much buzz about the movie and the Arclight was the few theaters showing it before it’s full release. Holy shit!! It was sooo worth it. I was like, damn Darren, you are one dark, twisted but talented dude. I am now a fan of Mila Kunis. She used to annoy me with her cutesy routine but, I really liked her in Extract and she was bearable in Forgetting Sarah Marshall but in Black Swan she made her breakthrough. Natalie Portman was flawless of course and Vincent Cassel was really sexy *and I think he looks like a weasel*. So 5 stars, 2 thumbs up and all that critic jazz.
We had to get back to Antz Mom’s house before 3pm so we just made it *thanks to my racecar driving* and we drove all the way to Pasadena to have dinner at Afloat Sushi. Well, we were excited for Aimee to try it *we had been raving about for weeks* but 5pm was the wrong time of day to go because it was just us and another guy in there. The boats were almost totally empty. BOO!
After prying me from Wackos we headed back to Venice to hang out a Aimee’s for a few hours. Antz brought his tools and hung some frames in Aimee’s living room. She loved the mood board I made for her so we have to start shopping to get her bare apartment looking pretty. We were absolutely exhausted when we got home at 11 but after putting Liv to bed, we stayed up wrapping presents. They look lovely except we need to buy ribbon.
Today Liv and I are going to the grocery store and I’m doing some much needed laundry, thrilling! Antz is working hard on a freelance project this weekend and he scored some pretty sweet finds at a Thrift store on Wednesday, so we may work on them this weekend. *photos coming soon*
