I have been tagged for the “Top Ten Films” challenge…

The Fifth Element

I have been tagged by a friend of mine, for a new blog game that is making it’s way through the ALT blog community. You must name your Top 10 films… Mine are, in no particular order:

– The Fifth Element (loved the costumes!)
– Bladerunner (Harrison Ford & Rutger Hauer)
– Flesh & Blood (Paul Verhoven flick with Rutger Hauer)
– Ladyhawke (also with Rutger Hauer, are we seeing a trend?)
– Queen of the Damned
– Signs (M.Night Shyamalan)
– Galaxy Quest
– Lord of the Rings Trilogy (I guess that counts as 3!)

A Very Wet Day….

Pouring Tea

Went out with friends last night and caught a movie double-header; Fantastic Four and Batman Begins.

When we came out of the theater, I was feeling very achy in my knees, and my friend, Lady Katana was feeling it in her ankles. We both have old injuries that tend to act up under certain circumstances. We dedeuced that rain was on it’s way, probably for the next day.

Sure enough, wake up this morning and only a few minutes later I start to hear the crash of thunder and then the rain starts. Not a few drops mind you, but an absolute downpour. (Thank god for Robaxacet, the best cure for my achy joints!) Here it is, two hours later and it’s still raining quite hard with only the occasional pause in intensity.

I don’t think I’ll be running many errands outside today, at this rate… I think I’d rather curl up with a nice hot cup of tea — but sometimes it’s hard to choose which kind… perhaps Jasmine & Mint, Peach or even some Blueberry tea. I definitely need something fruity and cheerful to make up for a slightly depressing and achy start to the day.

Speaking of which, are you a coffee or tea drinker? If so, what is your favourite blend, selection or flavour?

That’s all for now,

Off to the movies… and a Moolatte

Dairy Queen Moolatte

One of my Domme friends is about to head out of the city again and won’t be back until early September, so we’ve decided to make it a Dom/Domme threesome and head out and catch a flick. It’s her choice this time, so we are catching “Land of the Dead” at the Dollar Cinema in central Montreal. She’s about the only one who will watch horror flicks with me!

Afterwards, we are gonna treat ourselves to some “Mega-Moolattés” at a local Dairy Queen. Gee, I’ve gotten several friends hooked on those this summer. Sooooo, much better than those iced caps over at Tim Hortons, although I do have a thing going for their regular hot French Vanilla cappuccinnos.

Gotta run and start to get ready; gotta beat traffic as the movie starts at 5:30PM.

St. Jean Day in Montreal

So, I ended up going to see a movie by myself after all… It was good to get out for a drive; the air felt quite fresh after the rain.

Went to my favorite little theater called Dollar Cinema, near the Namur metro station. Everything is a dollar — a buck for admission, a buck for a drink and a buck for a popcorn. And they flavour their popcorn just right, doesn’t need any extra butter or salt.

Watched “Sahara”, based on a novel by Clive Cussler. I’ve read one of his novels before and rather enjoyed it, so I was hoping some of his style would carry through. I understand he had a major dispute with how the filmmakers portrayed his novel. However, if you go there expecting the standard American B-flick action movie, you really won’t be too disappointed. Not bad for an evening’s mindless entertainment.

Also caught up on some of my videotapes when I came back late that night. Got through about 4 hours worth, but of course it’s shorter because of skipping the commercials – I just LOVE that my VCR knows how to do that on it’s own!

Today is a holiday in Quebec – St. Jean, the national francophone holiday. I believe the rest of Canada generally enjoys theirs on August 1st. What is great about it is that we also have Canada Day on July 1st, so it always means that we have two long weekends back-to-back.

I’m debating going outside to mow my lawns for a bit of exercise, if it’s not too hot and muggy…

(Added later: Yes, I did manage to get the back lawn mowed and used the edge trimmer to get all those nasty little weed shoots trying to poke through the patio stones. Then I hosed it all clean before I lost all the daylight. Now I have a good feeling of accomplishment to end the day with. My Dom partner, Master Michael treated us both to some Hawaiian pizza from Domino’s, since it is a long weekend…)
