"Rorschach's Journal: October 12th 1985. Tonight, a comedian died in New York."

I am so sorry for being slightly missing in action this week but it has honestly been a boring, tired and slightly annoying week. Except for one lovely night that involved too much wine and the perfect hug, life has slowed down a little bit around here.

Thank god for weekends, huh?

Yesterday (Saturday):

It was the first day of the week spent having fun. Well, having fun without the help of wine anyways. It involved eating too much:



And finally seeing Watchmen:


Okay, so the thing you need to know about me is that I am a geek, especially when it comes to comics. So of course this means that any movie made after a comic book will have me bouncing around like a kid on sugar crack and Watchmen is no exception. I spent last weekend reading the graphic novel and the weekdays e-mailing my girls anything and everything related to the movie so of course this day was spent at the movies!

I absolutely loved it, as you can see. The acting was great, the special effects were breathtaking and I am so amazed on how true the movie was to the book. The fangirl that I am squeed and gasped and laughed and loved it so much.


Of course my favorite character is Rorschach because we is absolutely insane, completely badass and surprisingly right in his weird view of the world.
Favorite quote: "None of you understand. I'm not locked up in here with you. You're locked up in here with me."

And who can forget our favorite smart blonde man, Ozymandias, played by the charming and cheeky Matthew Goode.


I loved the oh-so-subtle way the producers tried to tell us that he is possibly gay. Possibly. Heh.


Although, I have to admit that bitch is fierce even when mingling with sparkly David Bowie look-a-likes.

Told you I'm a huge geek ;D

Today (Sunday):

Coffee with Dana and Mada and then a walk in the park with Dana. It was lovely, the sun was out and we sat on the grass having people stare at the girls with the heels who were taking photos:


Dana and I and sunshine!





I found an acorn :))





*hearts*





I am really enjoying every ray of sunshine here!





Watchmen earrings. In case you ever doubt my geekness :D

dress: Mango, belt: thrift, booties: Replay Jeans.

wonderful sunday, I love sitting on the grass and enjoying every single ray of sun though it might be a bit awkward in romania doing so because there will always be a bunch of people staring.... unfortunately...
I love the earrings, where did you buy them? Have a lovely week!

Hanna said...

The weather in Romania seems angelic... We're still having the last breaths of winter chills(

I love the pattern on your dress!

Katie said...

LOVE the earrings! i'm glad you liked 'watchmen' so much, its one of the first positive reviews i've heard. i loved the comics- the story is brilliant- and i loved zack snyder's other movies so i was hoping he'd hit this one out of the park. glad to hear you enjoyed it!
