Movies, TV and MakeIt Shopping

I finished a couple of knitting projects this weekend, but since they are Christmas presents, only those with access to Ravelry will be able to view them (I'm wayoutwear).

On Saturday night we went to the talkies and saw Men Who Stare at Goats - a quite enjoyable movie! I recommend it if you'd like to chuckle. And looking at Ewan McGregor and George Clooney don't hurt either!

And speaking of shows, did you watch Dexter last night? What a smokin' ending last night! I haven't seen a good one like that since, well, the season finale of Mad Men!

This week is going to be another busy one - first there's my day job, in between I'll have to drive Jp to the airport and back (that's a 3 hour round trip), work on some Christmas presents, and get some baking done for the kid's 11 birthday this weekend - he has requested rhubarb crunch, sugar cookies, and orange cupcakes. Since rhubarb's out of season and I'm not sure how the recipe will turn out with frozen rhubarb, I may skip this one.

We found him a cool skull leather wristband at this weekend's MakeIt craft show, where we stopped in to see Cynthia's gorgeous selection of goodies. This is what we bought him:

And I bought this double-sided necklace: Then we buzzed over to Commercial Drive for a yummy sandwich at La Grotto del Formaggio and fries at Belgian Fries. That hit the spot!
