Watched Gangster Squad and Mama with Spencer, Junior, and Dakota.
I enjoyed Gangster Squad a lot! It was a bit sad (I am always really affected by death of fictional characters!), but overall great. There was a nice balance of action and plot. I hate watching those movies where you can't tell who is shooting who and what is going on, but this was perfect. Plus, I love mob-ish stories!
Before watching Mama, the four of us went to Kandy Kraze and made up two bags of candy that totaled $28.00! Can you believe that?! It was entirely too much candy and no, we did not eat it all.
Mama was okay. I'd give it 3 out of 5 stars. There was so much computer animation towards the end that I felt like I was watching a kiddie movie.
Having watched Gangster Squad I FINALLY realize why people like Ryan Gosling. *swoons* He's sooo cute! My goodness.
*sigh* Look at that man!
Spencer and I went over to our coworker's house for her 18 birthday party on Saturday. We spent a lot of time over there and got a glimpse of Mexican culture. They were teaching us a couple phrases here and there, haha. I specifically thought it was cool how when someone came over, they personally greeted and touched each family member. It felt more personal than a simple handshake. It's really hard to explain because it was unlike the usual American greeting, but also similar.
Sunday night we went up to Mazzio's Italian Eatery and ate dinner with the same co-workers. Afterwards, Spencer went with them to the casino and I went home to complete some homework.
Then last night he went to the casino again while I was at school. When I came home I took a quiz and spent a lot of time on Pinterest. :) Overall, he lost $70.00 there.
It's been a nice, busy, and fulfilling week.
