We did some shopping today, groceries for the Mom and then to Michael's, where I decided to get the Dry Gulch Sheriff's Office instead of the "on clearance" Vampire's Caverns... it goes with what I have already better. If I'd had a lot more money, I'd have gotten both, but it seems like I NEVER have much cash around Halloween (and this is like the first year ever the Lemax Spooky Hallow stuff appears to be lasting INTO October instead of all being gone by Labor Day). On Friday I stopped by Old Navy to see what those sweaters I liked from the scary commercial were running, and found they were on sale, making them roughly half the price that people on eBay were trying to sell them for (weird). They had some nifty Halloween shirts on sale, too. As usual, I spent more money this weekend than I should have, but so it goes with the unrepentant capitalist.
We locked the cats in the office and sprayed the rest of the house for ticks, and have been killing off those who have been running from the poison all afternoon. Ew. Oops, I have to go hang up those clothes...
There! Clothes hung up, dinner fixed (and eaten), and back to updating. Not that I have a whole lot more to say, really -- not exactly a "lazy" Sunday, but I don't feel like I've done all that much with it. I did take some time this morning/afternoon to watch the Nickelodeon movie of Harriet the Spy on television, and I'm rather pleased with it -- I had expected it to suck like nearly every other adaptation of a book I ADORED as a child (Harriet is the reason I use my middle initial!), but while there were a few changes and updates, on the whole it was extremely faithful to the book. Michelle Trachtenberg was even a pretty good Harriet (damn, she was cute at that age), even though her hair was too long, and the casting overall was pretty flawless. I even liked Rosie O'Donnell as Ole Golly.
