A Meme to Waste the Time

Hey everyone. Not much to post about. Firda and I didn’t do much this weekend. Hit some thrift stores, went to Rockwood, Ontario, took some pictures and watched a couple of movies. We went to the cinema on Friday and saw “The Prestige“. Good movie. I figured out part of the movie twist early in the film, but I didn’t piece all of the details together. We also watched Delicatessen (Jean Pierre Jeunet’s first feature film – you know! The guy who directed Amelie!). I had seen it ages ago but didn’t remember most of the story. Highly enjoyable. See it if you haven’t had the chance.
I figured I would do a meme, which Dave did a couple of weeks ago. For those of you who want to read the meme check out the extended entry.
