I brought home a bottle of Absolut Los Angeles. It was in the duty free shop at the airport. It's vodka infused with some things, most notably on the palate that of blueberry. It reminds me of a blueberry pop tart. Apparently this is the second of their limited edition city vodkas, interesting, but I don't really see the link between blueberries and LA. Nonetheless, I drank way too much of it last night.
Serge did a fabulous thing while I was gone. He had our place painted! He planned it all behind my back and had the guys here the day after I left. I can't believe how long we suffered with baby blue and peach everywhere - nearly two years. Now it's a pale greenish yellow (Serge is correcting me, apparently it's "sage") with a burgundy color which ties in nicely with the rug and the art.
I watched a bunch of movies while I was gone. At mom's house, she has a pretty big library of films and I got to see several I've never seen before. Prairie Home Companion was a bit dull, but I liked both Johnny Depp films, Don Juan DeMarco and Finding Neverland. I saw something else at her house too but I can't remember what. Here's mom with her kids.
On the plane I watched 21, Ironman, What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas, Flawless and Made of Honor. That personal video system is the only way to fly. I liked all of the films I chose and am glad I did not spend $60 to see them at the theater. Now my vacation is over and I'm working Monday to Friday until Christmas. I thought we were going to ease into this, but no, my services are required daily.
And for those who are curious, today is my 47th day of smobriety.
