The past week has been busy because I’ve been driving back and forth from work to the church because of dvbs. If not, I’d be at work until 8 or 9 at night.
Thank God dvbs was over. I never really did anything to help, they assigned me a part but wasn’t really able to commit because of weird schedule at work. Graduation was on Sunday, the kids were just adorable and funny. The Pre-K kids were hilarious. During their song, every kid was doing something else, making faces, singing a different song, etc. It was fun though.
After church, I went over to the Fabila’s to see Sam leave for Philly Int’l and eventually will be in Toronto, and Steph as she leaves for Connecticut. The rest of the family went up to Boston to accompany Kristie for her orientation.
I never really got the chance to spend time with marchesa over the past week … uhmm yeah, except for last tuesday. So we went out to watch The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (there was one woman).
That movie was eyecandy for me, that brought a lot of the characters that I have read about to life. The intersting part of it though is how they were able to mesh everyone, their abilities, personalities, etc. The colorful cast of characters were Dorian Gray, from Oscar Wilde’s The Portrait of Dorian Gray, Rodney Skinner, a derivation of The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells, Mina Harker from Dracula by Bram Stoker, Tom Sawyer, his grown-up character from Tom Sawyer, Detective by Mark Twain, Dr. Jekyll/ Mr. Hyde from The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson, Captain Nemo and his vast array of technological wonders from Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne and last but not the least, Allan Quartermain of King Solomon’s Mines fame by H. Rider Haggard.
Crazy stuff. I think it was a great movie, but it would probably be better if they turned that into a series. The one surprise I got in the movie was the villain. Who would have expected Prof. James Moriarty, the arch nemesis of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, would be the man behind all the scheming and what not.
All in all, I really had a great time over the weekend. It was something that I never wanted to end.
thank you mahal
