We watched the Godfather this weekend. Godfather 1 and 2. it took two nights, and i crave the day that i will be able to watch a movie without subtitles. Movies are a lot of work here too. First you must find a DVD. if the DVD is from a european you must then find a european with a laptop. if the DVD is from a north american you must find 1 of the 2 north americans with a laptop. its very hectic... and then chances are at least 1/3 of your movie watching group doesnt speak english as a first language, so its nice to turn on the subtitles so they can understand whats going on a bit better. some of the subtitles get pretty intricate too... for instance if you watch The Shinning with subtitles, not only does it tell you what the characters are saying but it provides a description of the background music... there's ominous music, suspensful music, worrisome music, etc... I also would like to lay on a couch that is not covered in some type of plastic, waterproof material. all of our furniture is lawn furniture and there for weather proof... VERY comfy let me tell you! a real couch will be a bit like heaven, i imagine...
Saturday, it rained cats and dogs. it poured and poured but only for 20-30 minutes. then it lightend up. the roads were flooded though. ankle deep in most places. i was going shopping with pavel and we reached an intersection and we could go right where a small gyser had formed in the middle of the street... yes, the center of the street was spewing water straight up, or we could go left, up-river. we went left. pavel could jump across the river, but i could quite make it and i almost lost my flip flop. i couldnt decide if i was happy i'd worn flip flops or not. the island isnt very clean... theres a lot of poo on the streets so basically i was wading through a giant cat toilet... but flip flops and feet can be washed a bit better than sneakers.
Sunday i had a giant breakfast at the neighbors-across-the-pool's place. bacon, eggs, crepes, juice, and potatoes. it was delicious! it was Chris's birthday so we were celebrating. Tomorrow is Brett's birthday. we're making him lasagna for dinner. On saturday we're going to Gozo, finally! it should be fun. hopefully the weather will cooperate. its weird though, no snow and all kinds of christmas decorations up. it seems like there should be snow. yesterday the guys were laying in sun in their swim trunks! its so weird.
18 days til i go on my vacation! i'm so excited! we're going to eat so much chocolate and sandwiches! yum.
thats all for now

Every year my son Dylan and I have been building our Halloween animatronic display. This year we added 12 new figures and my wife had been making the clothes etc. but then I clued in that Halloween Costumes were the ideal solution - ya, ok I'm slow but...This year is really cool because we've done an HP Lovecraft display that I'm sure he'd appreciate but I'm not so sure he'd approve of this - The Necronomicon - Is it just me or is that just plain goofy ? Anyway, everybody is doing their own Haunted House thing now but hey - it's fun and if you've got kids I really suggest you try it yourself if you haven't already. It's a nice change from the usual Christmas Lights routine and a lot of scaaarrry fun. Happy Halloween everybody.
