As I'm sure most of the rest of you did, I had a long weekend. Which was much needed after being away last week.
While away, I got a phone call from my boss about my yearly bonus and it was more than I expected, YAY! It's enough to pay off my astronomical vet bills from when one of my cats needed emergency surgery, as well as a really large chunk of my debt. I made the promise to myself that if I got a decent bonus, I would buy myself a little present.
I had it narrowed down to two choices: a pair of Tory Burch flats or a Michael Kors watch. After much deliberation, I went for the flats.
Aren't they pretty???? Yes, cue my pretentiousness for posting that I can afford a $200 pair of shoes. Whatever, Sorry I'm not sorry!
Moving on, the majority of my weekend was spent doing some spring cleaning, some quality time with Harry Potter, and going to see this gem:
A friend of mine said it was good...and let's be honest, do I really need an excuse to look at Ryan Reynolds? No of course not.
I will start out by saying that I did really enjoy the movie. Denzel is always fantastic. I cannot think of a single role he has ever played that he didn't nail. You heard it here first, he is hands down one of the greatest actors of all time. Yes, ALL TIME. I dare you to argue. Ryan Reynolds however...really is just a pretty face. His acting chops leave much to be desired and this particular role seemed out of his depth. I hate to compare him to such a twat, but he has the same acting quality of repeating the same facial expression over and over again to portray a range of emotions, thus falling flat and bordering on comedic, much like Kristen Stewart with her lip biting thing. Ryan has a tendency to use the doe-eyed, slightly open mouth expression to convey every emotion. Oh Ryan, thank goodness you're so damn sexy.
In short, go see the movie because the plot is decent (albeit somewhat predictable), Ryan is hot, and Denzel is just Denzel.
Oh - and I also may or may not have gotten so bored Sunday night that I drank the beer I had in the fridge that I don't even like but got stuck with from a dinner party. Hooray for drinking alone!
