“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

imaginatively titled: The Weekend

just another hastily jotted Diary Entry:
Saturday
: R14 went on a shopping spree with steph and came home with *free* shoes. nope she didn't nick them, steph got some and there was a free-pair-deal going.
D17 and i went to
The Lives of Others. wonderful, intense, thought-provoking, did i say intense? i burst into tears at the last line of the movie. D17 treated me to sushi, and i tried your current addiction, Deb, the one with the green dental floss all piled on top. loved it. there's so much added fun for yer buck: i spent half an hour picking the remains outta my pearly-whites.
Daddy took M5 out for a happy meal and a plastic gun. now he feels loved too.

J11 and S9 went to a progressive dinner and indulged a little too much: S9 got dropped home early after he "lost" some of his dinner somewhere unmentionable.

while the lads were out partying, D17 cooked Daddy, R14 and me a delish dinner and then we spent much of the evening surfing channels: the girls were trying to watch
The Princess Diaries on tv 3 aka tv SNOW/flicker. the boys were trying to watch a beat-your-opponent-by-crawling-through-a-pig-trough show
*i* said we should watch a dvd... but was outvoted by general consensus. actually no one would give me the remote control. what is it about men and remote controls?

Sunday
: chilled. ate all of last night's leftover venison sausies. no, not by myself. D17 went to work. the rest of us took off in The Sardine Tin for the afternoon: starting out with select-your-own berry yoghurt icecreams... we all decided they're even more delish than the ones at pokeno... then we dashed to the Quarry Park to enjoy the *summer weather* YAY the kids posed by rudolph and then we walked up, up, up the hill and did the circuit around the top. yep, walked off all those sausies.
more fave photos from today: me'n'woozie
me'n'Neo er Hubby (gotta love the Self Portraits)
mischievous M5 squirting water
and... the obligatory waterfall shot:
cos we've been quoting this all weekend:
Uh-oh.
Don't tell me.
We're about to go over a huge waterfall.

Yep.

Sharp rocks at the bottom?
Most likely.

Bring it on.
BOOOO-YAHHHHH!!!

The Lives of Others is my favorite movie of the year. I spent several minutes with tears rolling down my face after the last line, too. :)

m.m.
the fountain is over by the dragon slide>>> we walked past it last time we were all there!!!!!
in fact we all snuggled around the picnic table RIGHT NEXT TO IT lol.
funny, i'd never noticed it before either.

l.l.
I: i must know.
W: get used to disappointment!

seriously, i don't wanna write a spoiler, so will be slightly ambiguous cos if you haven't seen the movie, i really recommend it. but know this: there are a few slightly dodgey scenes, enough for you to tell your 17 year old: ewww, i'm closing my eyes, lol.

the last line is where H.G.W. (or is it H.W.G.??)opens the book, and declines the offer of gift-wrapping, saying, "It is for me."
so redemptive.
*sniff, bawl*
