Original Planet Of The Apes Movie Posters.

Jeremy and I spent a good deal of time this weekend watching all of the Planet of the Apes movies. (They’re all available free on Amazon Prime.) I’d seen the first one on TV when I was a kid, but the others were completely new to us.

They are so wacky, but of course they take themselves really seriously. We laughed a lot. The worst of the 5, in my opinion, was Beneath the Planet….it went so far off into left field that our mouths were left hanging open going “Whaaaaat?”

All in all, it made us appreciate the newer versions and their incredible special effects. We’ve come so far from monkey suits. ;) (And the new movies have a MUCH MUCH better explanation for how the earth could be taken over by apes. The one in Conquest was pretty laughable!)

  • Jeremy got poison ivy on the 4th of July. We have spent about $50 on over the counter meds plus steroids from the doctor, but he has still been completely miserable all this time. Then this morning he woke up completely broken out in hives all over his upper body. No idea what’s going on!!! He has an appointment with his doctor at 3pm. Praying for some answers and some relief for my poor itchy man.
  • My iPhone battery has been kinda iffy for a while now, but this weekend my phone started shutting off any time the battery got below 80%. LAME. So we contacted Apple and they want me to drop my phone off at some place here in town. Days without a phone?! Whatever shall I do???
  • They are shutting down the cute little grocery store in our parking lot today. It’s a real shame! This neighborhood has depended on this grocery store for so many years…and while there are other stores fairly nearby, they are “mega-stores” with huge crowded parking lots and mazes of aisles to navigate. This was such a nice, quick place for me to grab stuff on my way home from work. And it’s always sad to see quaint little places like that shut down.

As Dr O always says, time stands still with a wet dog. Trying to leave Cubby’s allergy shampoo on for at LEAST 5 minutes and he ain’t impressed.

Yes I made myself a picnic lunch for the pool and yes it included a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Saturday afternoon pool time! Out here for 3hrs and only about 20 minutes of that was spent in the wave pool. The water is FREEEEZING, probably because it hasn’t gotten over 76 outside since Tuesday and it’s barely 80 now! 

I took the indoor water Tabata class when I got off work (before the outdoor pool opened). It wasn’t very good. More fun than the elliptical would have been, but not much of a workout.

Cranky this morning for no real reason.

Can’t wait for work to be over because I’m not feeling customer service-y AT ALL!

Every song, we do at a different location. Under the bridge. Chinatown. Rowing boat in Central Park. Whatever happens, we record it.

We get arrested?

Keep rolling.

Begin Again (2014)

Jeremy took me to see this movie last night. I hadn’t heard anything about it and we had to go across town to a different theater to see it.

I’m so glad we did! It’s endearing and imaginative….such a celebration of music and New York City.

I didn’t want to like Keira Knightley’s voice, but I couldn’t help it. She’s got a Katie Herzig/Lenka/Schuyler Fisk quality to her voice. And I’m a big ol’ sucker for that.

Go see “Begin Again!” You’ll love it.
