Sloth love Chunk!

Last night a few of us went to the Celebration Cinema's Late Night Cult Classic of the week. This week it was one of my favorites, The Goonies. If you have not watched this movie ever, why are you reading this? Go rent it, buy it, see it tonight at Celebration Cinema! For FSM's sake, it's only $3 at the theater! Anyway, I'm bummed I missed Fight Club last weekend, but we had lots to do anyway, with celebrating Labor Day weekend and a wedding. I am going to do everything in my power to see the other films they're showing for this promotion, because they are some of my favorites. ESPECIALLY Labyrinth, I bet that looks awesome on a big screen.

One of the funniest parts about seeing The Goonies was looking around in the theater--I think I was the only person in the theater that was actually alive when the movie came out. I was 2, but that still strikes me as interesting. The other funny part about seeing The Goonies was this:

I've neglected my knitting for a bit in order to finish a book. It's called "The Thirteenth Tale" by Dianne Setterfield. It has captivated me. I haven't been sucked in by a book like this in a very long time. Go read this book. NOW. It's a ghost story, fictional biography, mystery, journey-of-the-self, and gothic novel all in one. Also, it is a book for book lovers. I can't give you a synopsis, because I wouldn't know where to start.

"You have given nineteen different versions of your life story to journalists in the last two years alone."
She shrugged. "It's my profession. I'm a storyteller."
This book has me up at night not wanting to sleep because I can't wait to see what happens next. Speaking of what happens next, I'm going to get a brownie and go back to reading. Later gators.
