Sunday Snapshot is Back!

Currently reading:

Dewey Decimated by Charles A Goodrum: I seem to be on a books-about-libraries kick lately. I spotted this one while my mom was purging her shelves and decided to give it a try.

The Passion of the Purple Plumeria by Lauren Willig: This is the first Pink Carnation book I've picked up. We'll see how it goes.


I finally posted my review of The Art Forger last Sunday in lieu of a Sunday Snapshot.

Movies watched:

the nice guys
The Nice Guys, starring Russell Crowe, Ryan Gosling, and Angourie Rice

First of all, I'm a sucker for noir crime movies set in Los Angeles, which is probably why my list of favorite movies includes LA Confidential, Mulholland Drive, Heat, etc. etc. And second of all, I love buddy cop stories. So this movie was pretty much guaranteed to make me happy. The plot, which centers around a porn film and political corruption, is suuuuuuper dumb; but this a minor point. Most of the movie is about watching Crowe and Gosling travel around LA getting into hilarious hijinks. The two have fantastic chemistry and are fun to watch, but the real star of the movie is Rice, who plays Gosling's preternaturally self-possessed 13-yo daughter. I wish this movie was a series so I could keep watching these characters! An entertaining flick for sure.

This week in heidenkindom:

It's been a busy few weeks, friends. I was working double time at my day job to help out while the owner and his wife were on vacation. I also got a new writing gig (hopefully, if my first few articles are what they want–fingers crossed!), so I had to focus on that and try to make some really great words. hooray words

Then on Wednesday my mom and I went to Palisade to visit some Colorado wineries. After that and the wine course I'm taking and the article I wrote on rosé wine, I am wined out! I think the trip will be a good investment for future articles, though, and we had fun.

My favorite part of the trip was actually visiting Colorado National Monument. Here are a few pics:

Grape vines

Ninety-nine barrels of wine on the wall, ninety-nine barrels of wiiiiiiine...

The Book Cliffs


Pretty cactus flowers

There were A LOT of loudly decorated VW minibusses in the Grand Junction area.

More scenery
