Weekend Open Thread

July 13, 2013

It’s the weekend, y’all! I am slowly but surely shaking off the blahs. My 38th birthday is coming up this week and I realized maybe that was tied into my blahs. So I made an executive decision: DH and I are spending a night away next Friday, leaving the kids with my parents. And I’m getting a pedicure, and maybe a massage, and an eyebrow wax during the week. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME, DAMNIT!  😀 Sometimes you gotta fake it ’til you make it, amirite?!

In other news: those of you that read Gillian Flynn’s pulpy novel Gone Girl might be interested to know who will play Nick in the upcoming movie adaptation. It’s Ben Affleck. Thoughts? Concerns? Personally, I like it. He hadn’t occurred to me (for some reason, I pictured Josh Lucas) but I think Affleck will work. The REAL question is: who should play Amy?

What are you up to this weekend? Chat away!
