I had such an odd weekend.

The toaster broke so I had to fry my bread. It ended up too crispy which was a shame.

I didn’t have any social plans so I watched Dog Soldiers on DVD. I really enjoyed it so I actually watched it again. Some movies can be better the second time. I’ll admit, I actually got really carried away and I proceeded to watch it on repeat time and time again. Three Dominos orders later I finished the 12th repeat and went to bed on Sunday evening.

What a weekend.
