the weekend...

i finally got some reading done this weekend... i said, "fuck all this shit i need to do for xmas" and just plopped down with a book and read.

i haven't had uninterrupted reading time like that in a long time. i've had the amazing adventures of kavalier & clay on my nightstand now... for 2 or 3 years and never had the time to start it. when i have thick books to read, i like to have the time to get into it... because normally, once i stop, i have a hard time picking it up again because inevitably, i'll have to start over. starting over is very discouraging to me. it's why i haven't finished playing final fantasy X or kingdom hearts. i'm so close to finishing the games, but i can't because i'm not strong enough yet so that means i have to backtrack to up my strength and such. and i hate backtracking.

at any rate, kavalier & clay was a really good read. way better than i thought it would be. it's a novel about the beginnings of 2 comic book authors. it's a really easy read... it's on the longish side (about 650 pages), but it doesn't feel like it's that long. he's really descriptive and i enjoyed it very much. even the story itself has elements of a comic book story to it. but, i think even people who aren't into comic books would really like it.

went to a xmas party on saturday night. well, it was more like a xmas get together than a party. steve has these friends. i like them. they're really low key. i don't have much in common with them, but they've always been nothing but nice to me. anyway, her best friend is... kind of... uhm... i don't know how to explain her. if you've ever watched saturday night live and watched a skit with Debbie Downer, you'll understand what she's like. everything she has to say fucking BUMS ME OUT. she's a teacher in long beach. steve and i will have to home school our children. we're frightened of teachers like that. she kinda looks like this, but not quite as purple or good-looking.

also, she is SO jealous of them. at their wedding, she was crying at the table. but not in that, "oh, i'm so happy for my BESTEST friend. i love her so much and they look so happy." more in a way like, "i feel so sorry for myself because i'm a no personality bitch. i should be getting married. oh, god. when is it my turn? it's not fair. god, i hate her, but she's the only friend i have, so i have to suck it up and be her maid of honor. i'm so going to try and seduce her husband when she's not looking because i'm a back stabbing bitch." yeah. fun times. we ended up playing trivial pursuit. god, i hate playing that game with people who have those encyclopedia games and remember everything. fuck. i lost. steve won. at least one of us did :)

sunday i finished the last couple of chapters of the book and finished pikmin 2. i earned 10,000 pokos! finally! that game is so cute. i wonder if they're going to make a pikmin 3.

watched the nightmare before christmas last night. believe it or not, i've never watched that. i knew about it... i knew all the characters (mostly from kingdom hearts)... but i never watched it. so i led a sheltered childhood. sue me. and i found out that danny elfman not only did the music for the movie, but he was the singing voice for jack skellington. interesting....

also watched casshern. interesting movie. it's live action, but they did a lot of animation on top, so it had an interesting look to it. kinda like sky captain and the world of tomorrow, it had a retro, yet futuristic look to it. (i still need to watch that, too. jude!!! i love you!!!! ) i really liked the look of it... the action scenes are pretty good, but there aren't enough of them. gets kind of heavy at the end.

i don't know if i was a little confused because sometimes the plot doesn't completely fit together or because something was lost in the translation. at any rate, the summary can be found on the imdb link above.

we opened one of the gifts i got for steve for xmas. effen vodka. the black cherry vanila flavor. apparently effen means something about being smooth or balanced. i know what effen means to me, though :P muwahahaha...

anyway, it was tasty. it has a rubberized grip on the bottle ... they claim it keeps it colder. i think it's for when you're tah-rashed, you don't drop it and break it.

finally, here is the pic of steve with a beard. the picture is a little orange because the sunset comes in through our kitchen. also, his beard looks and feels a lot thicker than the pic. weird.

giest, cece, don't fucking encourage him. thanks. :P

hmmmm....ok i'll be the first to say that the beard isn't that bad. however, if he's not going to shave it off, then he should at least trim it. it's approaching that unruly-caveman length.

hey, steve has pointy ears.

i read Chabon's Wonderboys (?) a while back and i wasn't too impressed. maybe i'll check out that one.

He looks kinda old ... how old is he?

Blogger grace said...

huh, his ear does look a little pointy in this pic. they're not really... ooh, i have my very own elf! :D hehe...

secondly, he's not old :( i don't think he looks old :( what do you mean by old, anyway? :( he's 35. is that old? i don't think that's old :( :( :(

He looks kinda old?? I didn't think so. I definitely think he looks hot. Thats how Roys beard gets but I mean I want a full-fledged MOTHERFUCKING GRIZZLY ADAMS BEARD ON THAT MAN. God Bless, that would be hot. But then the man would get no rest, I say.
Roy + Phat Beard= Knockin' Boots

i'm old and i have pointy ears :(

i don't really have pointy ears, they're just getting huge because as men get old (like me), their ears get bigger. i'll have big ol' spock ears in another few years. hey, at least i'm too tall to be mistaken for a hobbit.

grizzly steve...hmmm, has a nice ring to it...

Seriously, Roy has one pointy ear. It's hot. I pretend he's an elf. I think elves are hot. But not Santa elves...more like Legolas elves.

and wait a minute here...Steve has a blog now? just a profile? Whats going on here?! Yay Steve!

AH, that reminds me.. I've never beat my Kingdom Hearts as well... Uh. hahaha, I'm at the last stage.. but for some reason, I just stopped playing.... hrmm.. I need to re-play that game sometimes...

steve doesn't look old. he looks younger than 35, but i bet he looks younger w/o the beard.

there's nothing wrong with semi-pointy ears. are you serious about men's ears getting bigger?? i'm deeply distubed.

steve: you can't trust cece's opinion anymore. my guess is that she's fucking insane. :P and baby, i don't think you're old or have pointy ears :)

cece: you may be steve's most favoritest blogger now.

steve only has a profile, no blog. thank god. now none of you will know the insane shit i do. muwahahaha.

LE: yes, he looks younger without the beard. i think everyone should keep telling him he looks old. maybe that will prompt him to shave it off. hehe... also, yes. the ears and the nose get bigger... freaky, huh?

it's the camera angle. in pictures, my boyfriend's eyes get bigger. he never smiles for the camera, so he also looks like a sociopath.

facial hair does add a few years to one's face. i thought men liked to look younger, not older. :P

steve has cute ears. i want to pet 'em.. if grace lets me. :P

steve doesn't look old. steve's hot.. steve is wanted by all of grace's friends.. hehe.. and that's probably because grace makes us grab steve's butt..

heey.. i was expecting the worest.. steve looks good with a bread.. =)

you guys are so damn cute.

you can pet his ears, jules :) i like to pet his ears. i rub his earlobes. i haven't done that in a while. i think his beard's getting in the way :P and shhh, you're not supposed to encourage his beard growth! i thought you were MY friend, damn you! :P

and i didn't know he put up a profile. cute :) i clicked on it. mostly jesus freaks. :P maybe he meant it that way. :P

*whispering*

(Sheez, Grace, I mean, come on ... I was trying to help you in your quest to get him to shave the thing off. People always say beards make a guy look older. Personally, I think he really looks hot. But, really, I was trying to help.)

aw, shit! jeanette, you're supposed to tell me beforehand!

nice damage control, btw :P

Blogger J. said...

Now, how the hell was I supposed to tell you beforehand? Steve freakin' reads your blog! I was gonna put something in my original "you look old" statement, but that would have totally spoiled the bomb effect. Besides, look what I started ... heh heh ...

Blogger Kis Lee said...

yeah, jeanette is the smart one!

i'm telling you, grace, get out your scissors...just a small patch. *snip snip*

bwahahahahaha!

i'm not that quick on the uptake, okay? :P

Ummm, HELLO, you didn't post your email address until AFTER I had already posted my smarty pants remark!!!

:) (I hope Steve's not mad at me.)

Oh wait, it's in your profile, huh? I forgot cuz I never look at your profile. Sheez!

I know I am late on this one, but YOWZA!!! Steve looks "effen" HOT! But I don't think it is the beard, I think it is the little "Bad Boy" sneer he has going on in that picture.

Hey Grace! You didn't make me grab his ass when I met him!!

10:20 AM  
Blogger grace said...

yeah, jeanette! it was THERE. :P no, he's not mad at you. he's just slipped into a severe depression. i caught him trying to hang himself with a necktie yesterday. i talked him down. it's okay now :P

mel, i think he's cute in the pic, too. except without the beard. :P hehehe... thanks, that'll make his day since jeanette's already told him he looks old and LE has told him he's got pointy ears :P muwahaha...

and mel, i didn't want to scare you off. next time we see you, you can grab his ass. it's nice :) promise :P

Hey grrr, baby... very grrr!, I was just searching for some info on ass to mouth movies and I came across your site. Although the weekend... is not 100% of what I was looking for, I found your blog quite interesting when searching for ass to mouth movies and have bookmarked it.
