Sitting here, dreaming about the weekend, and making lists of the things I need/want to do. Most of them involve working in my yard....

--plant nasturiums
--turn over sod on the front hill to create cutting garden
--plant new lilies
--stake already growing lilies
--plant phlox, globe thistle, fern flowers, move primroses to back yard
--seed carrots, reseed spinach, reseed sweet peas, seed welsh poppies in the shady corner, move existing plants to cover the poor, slug-eaten one
--slug bait
--mulch for back beds
--decide about bananas (I think they're in a too windy spot, the leaves are getting mangled..I either need to move them, or find a new home for them.
--go to the baseball game.
--bbq at John's folks house
--Grandma Jean's birthday
--Mother's Day.

Nope, not a busy weekend at all. ;)

Just have to get through this day.

And, we met up with Gordon and Tessa last night and got the first round of tickets for The Seattle International Film Festival.

Our first picks:
--The Secret Festival Tickets to 4 movies. You don't know what they'll be. You sign an oath not to tell anyone who isn't a Secret Festival member what you saw. Sometimes these are incredible movies that you can't see anywhere else...sometimes, a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend "just happens" to have access to a movie that otherwise is inaccessible....or a sneak world premiere, or something classic and hard to find. Usually totally worth the money and time spent.
--Animatrix. I think this will sell out quickly, especially with Matrix Reloaded opening 5/15.
--Bubba Ho-tep Who doesn't want to see Bruce Campbell as an aging Elvis?

I'm sure there'll be more. There's a documentary about Kurt Vonnegut, lots of Hong-Kong Action Movies, and the usual assortment of Italian/French coming of age movies...
