weekend report  

Yesterday morning I got out of bed and discovered I had screwed up my back somehow while sleeping. The weekend has not been *especially* fun, as a result.

Despite this, I took Young Indiana to a movie this morning. He only lasted through 30 minutes of the film (Planes: too boring for a 3 year old) and we went to lunch and did some shopping afterward. He was incredibly, incredibly good and helpful and sweet, but I ended up carrying too much, and with my back hurting it just…yeah. God. I came home and nearly collapsed of weeping exhaustion, although at some point I turned to put something away and my back popped in a shocking manner and the pain lessened.

I spent the remainder of the afternoon in my rocking chair, which has the best back support, reading Cassandra Clare’s CITY OF LOST SOULS. I guess she’s done something right with those books, as I’ve read all of them within the past month.

We finished s1 Jericho, which left us gasping in shock. We thought we had one more episode, so it was doubly shocking to get to the end and have Netflix tell us s2 would start in 20 seconds. But we instead watched Thor as a unicorn chaser, because dear grod.

I had totally forgotten Jeremy Renner was actually Hawkeye in that film. I remembered Hawkeye was in it; I did not remember ever seeing his face. But lo! Lookit that! There he was! Cool. :)

Yesterday’s Great Photo Archive Project involved emptying a box of photos & 20-year-old correspondence, by way of putting off decisions about the correspondence by shoving it into another box with other things of that nature, and by sorting and ditching many photographs, and putting the rest into albums.

Odds that I need to keep roughly 27 photos of actor Stan Kirsch: 0%.

Odds that Sarah and Christie will murderize me if I scan & post some of these photos of *them*: 100%.

Odds that I’m going to anyway: 100% :)

Tonight’s Great Photo Archive Project yielded about 200 photos of my sister’s wedding, a dozen or so worthy glacier/Alaska pictures, an equal number of pictures of visiting friends, and one utterly bewildering roll full of people I’ve never seen. My working theory is that it might be a drama trip that Dad brought students on…?

I haven’t yet gotten these ones into albums, but once I do, I’ll be down to one large box of photographs. I suspect it’s the one that’s actually *crammed full* of photos, and all things considered, it’s probably for the best that I inadvertantly came at it smallest-to-largest, because this way I’ve gotten at least 1000-1200 photos put into albums. (Albumed, I said, just to make Mom twitch. :))

This is one of my big projects too. (Okay, it has literally been on the projects list since I moved into this house, which is almost 12 years ago...but since I have now sorted through almost everything else, dammit, I WILL get to this one too.)

For instance, since I got married in 1984 and divorces in 1987, I suspect I don't need the entire selection of MY wedding photos. A few cute ones of my step-daughter (who was 2 at the time) and a few with the family as a whole. Otherwise, not so much.

hmm - I could have sworn you had said many times that number of Stan photos...27 is not so bad...

27 is a lot more than is necessary. :)

Sounds like a fun weekend save for the back! Hee, here we even get an extra geek fun regarding Thor and Avengers as they got a write up in the paper -- not for a movie review, but for a "Favored Son" story for the character of Hawkeye, as Clint Barton's storyline states he's from Waverly, IA -- and even though there's no actual circus based out of here, the city's quite happy and proud to claim him! Doesn't hurt that the sports teams and fans of the University of Iowa are called Hawkeyes either. :)

Tell your Mom, albumed is the correct simple plural form in Finnish and Estonian. The partitive plural is albumit.

Sorry about yur back. Glad it finally 'popped' back.

Unfortunately it only popped a little bkt back. It's still not well.

Mom says it's too bad for me I'm neither Finnish nor Estonian. :)

Probably just as well. They are damned hard languages to learn.

*grumble grumble* I was planning to go through my old photos, too, and digitize them, but I can't find them. The leading hypothesis is that I threw them out by mistake one of the last two times I moved...

Good luck with your albuming!

Mine were saved from that sort of fate by spending most of the past decade in my in-laws' garage... :}
