Just for the heck it

 Wearing a dress for the first time since...well...forever, it feels like. I figured....why not? old dress I sewed, worn with old leggings, Ecco boots Had to pick up my new prescription eyeglasses. So weird, you guys. There's no one in the mall because it's only for essentials now.

The human acting...not so much...LOLZ (although it does have Aleksander Skarsgard, so.....) His House An awesome psychological horror with brilliant acting from the two leads: Sope Dirisu and Wunmi Mosaku. Wunmi is in the upcoming Loki series so I'm so excited to see her in it! Slaughterhouse Rulez A pretty gory horror/comedy, but it has Michael Sheen and Simon Pegg and Nick Frost...can't go wrong with these guys.      Staged Speaking of Michael Sheen, I finally had a chance to see the show Staged...and oh em gee....what a freaking hilarious show. I've always loved them both in Good Omens, so it

A rare occasion

 Belated Happy Easter to those who celebrated yesterday:) Last year, Easter celebrations were cancelled. This year, our church was allowed to have 15% of its congregation. We were lucky enough to have booked tickets ( book tickets for church now). It was probably the smallest Easter mass I have ever seen, but nonetheless, it was great to be able to celebrate it, and also...the one time we all got the chance to dress up ( for sure anyhoo) :D. old Zara jacket and jumpsuit I sewed, Ecco boots How was your weekend? Did you celebrate Easter?
