Kurt Russell, booze, and sleeping in

Purr, hmm. Last night, Matthew and I had ourselves a mini-party. We bought some decadent Bunny Tracks ice cream, poured ourselves some alcohol-laden beverages, and had a big screen movie-thon in the home theater upstairs. Stargate first, then Big Trouble in Little China. Much giggling ensued. There was some talk about either The Thing then or Escape from New York but after two flicks, I was too tiddly to handle any more Kurt Russell. Hobkin almost had his first taste of Guinness-wanna-be beverage, but paper towels were faster than the inquisitive fuzz-head. He’s far too young to be drinking.

Pity it was too warm to hop into the hot tub; that would’ve made it perfect. But it takes too long for the A/C unit in the sun room to cool the place down. Should’ve got a bigger one when we built the thing. Ah well, live and learn.

Post 2nd flick, I slumped over on the couch, undoubtedly still giggling softly, and Hobkin curled up with me in his favorite spot–nuzzled up against my neck. Y’know, when he was one and a half pounds, curling up at my throat was cute and cuddlysome, but when he’s cresting four pounds and up, it’s a little strangley. But still cute.

Eventually I exhaled enough alcohol from my system to stumble with Matthew to bed, whereupon I slept in! Woohoo! (Okay, I woke up–briefly–to feed Hobkin breakfast, but then I was able to get right back to sleep.) I haven’t been able to sleep past 7am in ages! Two cheers for better living through fermented vegetable matter.

So, today, I’m going to brew up a lovely pot of tea to tempt my muse (mmm, sikkim), and write.

There’s much to be said of the virtue of lazy Sundays.

  1. You seemed to have had fun last night. I probably would’ve Escape From New York since it is one of my favorite movies. Big Trouble in Little China is also an awesome movie, even though it can be cheesy at times.

    Hope you have a good sunday.

      Much fun ensued, yes :). Big Trouble in Little China is the favorite flick as well of one of our best friends back in the Midwest. Campy and cheesy? Yes. But damn fine fun.

      Happy Sunday to you as well Brown-hedgie 🙂

  2. Indulgence.

    I too adore lazy Sundays. Today, I’m actually going to clean, slowly, at my own pace. I’ve only moved out a few months ago, so it takes me a while to make any sort of mess that needs a day devoted to cleaning, but it’s still nice to be able to do it at my own pace.
    Oh! And a new book, too.

    Happy Sunday

      You’ve only moved out a few months ago and you’re completely unpacked? I’m envious. We still have things in boxes in the garage from our previous house! Hee. I guess that means we probably didn’t really need to move that stuff to our new house . . .
