weekend update

Had a very lovely weekend with the Lizard.

Friday we went to dinner at Moxie's, which could be turned into an awesome goth club with little effort. Then we went to see Monsters vs. Aliens - the 2nd time for me, the 1st for Zil. It's a good, fun movie that actually allows the female protagonist to remain female, and yet strong, which is pretty rare in movies. It still fails the Bechdel test, and the women are consistently rail thin while the men vary in body type. At least it's a start, though.

Saturday included kilt shopping and a haircut. Then Zil and I went to Chimichanga's for a long early dinner followed by "X-Men Origins: Wolverine". Which, for the first 2/3 of the film succeeds and fails much in the same way that the source material does. Then it collapses into a storm of pointless plot wankery and they completely ruin Deadpool after getting the character mostly right in the beginning. Also, Wolverine's hair is ridiculously pretty, and I am a geek enough that I found that distracting. On the plus side, Live Schrieber is the best possible movie Sabretooth, IMHO.

Sunday was spent lounging around watching tv and movies at home with cuddles and a fashion show.

The final wedding outfit for the ZilBro wedding is as follows: the new black utilikilt (original model), black vest, white wingtip collar shirt and a black puff tie. None of my jackets really came close to working. For footwear, we've provisionally agreed on combat boots, but only if I get them really well polished.

I also picked up something for an upcoming masquerade party, so my outfit for *that* is nearly sorted.

Glad to hear Liev Schrieber is good! I really like him as an actor and it's good to see his career getting better and bigger roles. We're going to see it soon.

Man, there are a ton of weddings this spring. Sounds like you are going to be dashing in your choice of wedding wear.

I like the sounds of the weddong attire! Good combo.

I'm surprised to hear Liev Schriber worked well as Sabretooth. I thought that casting choice was poor at best. I, however, have not seen the movie yet, because despite my love for Gambit, I'm waiting till Wolverine is on DVD, and we're seeing Star Trek next weekend instead. :)

Yeah, I was very dubious about Schrieber when the first pics started coming out. The important thing, though, is that he can *act* - his Sabretooth is in many ways scarier than the character is in the comics, mainly because Schrieber brings the mancing scowls and creepy smiles.

Thank you for a wonderful weekend, darling!

Do you know how to do them properly?

(says the military man's kid...)

Re: Boots
I know a method learned from various sources that is supposed to be military. I also know an award-winning bootblack from the fet community, from whom I've gleaned a different method. If time allows, I'll get her to do it, since she's a lot more serious about boot blacking than I am. :)
