We watched another Hitchcock movie, Notorious, with Cary Grant & Ingrid Bergman. I enjoyed it, more than the last movie we saw. One thing I’ve noticed about his female lead characters, they all seem to be high maintenance.
How did we spend the Fourth? We went down to Cherry Creek, which wasn’t busy at all, had some Peet’s and picked up an umbrella stroller for Elijah. Something that is smaller and easier for small trips (like Boulder, or Vegas). It was on sale.
I also talked to Cate briefly, who was killing time during her layover in Denver. Had it been longer than an hour, we might have driven out to the airport to say hi. I secretly hoped that those crazy rains we’ve been having would have hit while they were there. Then we could have had them over. We’ll be seeing Cate & Kaisara in 64 days or so. I can wait.
Last night I talked with Heather on the phone for 93 minutes. We haven’t talked on the phone since February I think. So we had a lot of catching up to do. It was really nice talking with her, though Geoff was sad I had ignored him half the evening. Oops. 🙂
Not much else going on this week. We’re trying to tighten the money belt to save up for our trip next month.
Lastly, I wasn’t sure how the Oilers would make out with the loss of Pronger. So when I read in the Edmonton Journal they secured Lupul for Pronger, I was stoked! Now that’s a good deal. And it’s even better when you hear Lupul say he is happy to play in Edmonton (he’s from Ft Saskatchewan). He said, “It’s going to be refreshing to be in a place where hockey really matters”.
I’ll close with a quote from Notorious.
