We had a fun date night and a wonderful weekend! Too bad it’s over already. Both Andy and I enjoyed The Hunger Games movie. I thought they did an admirable job of relaying the story as the book told it, which is difficult to do sometimes. It wasn’t spectacular, but it was quite good! One funny part was how they had to stop and explain the tracker jackers, because you know everyone would know that. Andy said it was like stopping in the middle of a football game to explain the rules haha.
I hadn’t read anything about the movie or who played the characters. I was surprised to see Lenny Kravitz as Cinna, Elizabeth Banks as Effie, and Woody Harrelson as Haymitch. I pictured Haymitch as heavier and more vulgar, but Woody was a good choice. We didn’t even realize that was Elizabeth Banks until later – especially because of all that make-up! The cast was pretty good though. I’m definitely looking forward to the next movie! I wonder if they’ll combine books 2 & 3? There’s a lot of slower moving story lines leading up until the end of the series.
And for whatever reason, we ate Greek food on Cinco de Mayo! LOL. Neither of us drink anymore, so we don’t really get into those kinds of holidays. We just wanted to try something different. The restaurant we went to is not a chain – it’s a local business, family owned and operated. The food was delicious, and our whole meal was only $18! We both had Gyros and fries. I was a little leary of trying something too different, since I know nothing about that kind of food. I feel braver now. Everything looked and smelled excellent, so hopefully it tastes superb, too. I can’t wait to go back again and try one of their more authentic dishes.
Sunday was a super lazy day! I don’t know what came over me, but I could not stay awake for the life of me! The first thing I thought was that maybe I’m pregnant. I took a test yesterday afternoon and this morning – total BFNs. It’s okay though — a BFN is much better than faint lines, evaps, or chemical pregnancies. I’m on CD 24, so I suppose there could be a chance. My natural cycles are normally quite short, so this one is working out pretty well. At least the immune meds will be in my system (hopefully working) for the next couple cycles. I’m not anxious about getting pregnant right now, however I always still have a tiny bit of hope that we’ll get lucky somehow. For me, it’s like The Hunger Games. Even if the odds are in my favor, it doesn’t end up working out anyway! Although, that won’t stop me from trying! 🙂
Here’s my CD 24 (today) BFN – tweaked, so you can see I don’t ALWAYS get lines 😉
