Friday Fun! (Movies and Gardening)

April 9, 2010 3 comments

My apologies for no book reviews this week!  The reason is three-fold.  First, I’m reading a graphic novel series, and I wanted to just review the whole series in one post.  Second, my regular book I’m reading is really long, and I’m not enjoying it that much, so I tend to wander off and play Plants vs. Zombies on my iTouch instead.  Finally, the auudiobook I’m listening to is crazy long. We’re talking a grand total of 7 days worth of audio. Like whoa.  However, all three will be finished next week, which means you will be inundated with reviews!

Last weekend, I attempted to see Hot Tub Time Machine.  About 3/4 of the way through the movie, the fire alarm went off.  We all evacuated and were puzzled to discover zero employees anywhere in sight.  Finally, a fellow movie goer took the initiative to call the fire department, as the alarm was still going off.  The firemen showed up and went in the building and miraculously an employee finally showed her face.  We got free passes to another show, which means I can see a 3D movie even though I’d only paid for a 2D one. Score!

While I was in Home Depot getting my huge planter pots for when my seedlings become, y’know, big plants, I noticed people buying seed pots.  Some of these babies even had complex clear plastic covers to simulate a greenhouse.  I feel that I should at least save my readers from this marketing scheme.  You really don’t need to buy seed pots!  Look in your recycling bin.  Empty plastic food containers make excellent seed pots.  I currently am using hummus containers, cheese spread containers, and a yogurt cup, but pretty much anything that’s about that size and plastic can be used.  Put the dirt in it.  Add a bit of water and stir it up.  Put the seeds in it.  Now, take the plastic wrap you’ve got in your cupboard, put it over the top, and hold it in place with a rubberband. Voila!  Nearly free seed pots.

Happy weekends everyone!
