June05_2012_Tuesday_venus and the sun
Tuesday June 5, 2012_I spent the greater part of the afternoon-evening watching the transit of the sun by Venus at the NASA EDGE, Hawaii webcam site. Fabulous fun!!! Especially fun also was watching the little vid from the international space station with its accompanying photos of the transit as seen by the station's 7 amazing camera. We live in an awesome time.

June06_2012_Wednesday_Frankenstein at Oakridge with Lauren
Wednesday June 6, 2012_I picked up Lauren in Santa Cruz at 3:30. We drove over the hill and were to Oakridge Mall by 5:00 where we met David, on his way home from work, at BJ's for pizza. By 6:00, David was on his way home and Lauren and I were on our way to the theater to wait  for Frankenstein which began at 7:00. We spent the 45 minute wait discussing BBC Sherlock :DD

Happily, the theater set-up the projector wrong and we were able to watch the entire opening 'birth' sequence with Jonny Lee Miller in the role of the monster before those in charge realized that it should be Benedict in that role. They started again, at the beginning, and we were able to compare and contrast the two actors' way of doing this most powerful scene. YAY!!

Thursday, June 7, 2012_I drove Lauren back to Santa Cruz, got out of my car, heard some rustling, looked over and found her. She lazily continued on her way, munching here, munching there, completely unconcerned about us. Very cool.

That deer you caught in the pic is a terrific shot!

Thank you, glad you enjoy it.

She really was. I think Lauren has gotten used to having them around, but I haven't. Not yet :D

Oh, very cool, glad you were watching too. It is all so amazing!!

Lauren and I had such a good time, we plan on taking advantage of Fathom more in the future.

Your communing with wildlife moment with the hummingbird was very special as was mine with the deer. We just stared at each other long enough for me to finally remember to get my camera from my purse. Glad she stuck around :D

That is awesome that you got to go and see Frankenstein too!! :D Benedict's performance as The Creature was absolutely brilliant!

I haven't been on LJ in awhile, did you see it too? Benedict's portrayal was brilliant, so compelling. You could really feel his fear and confusion and his anger.

I did! :) I saw it back on Saturday but only posted about it yesterday. It's here if you want to see :)

Graet shot of the deer. :)

Thanks, it was easy as she was such a willing subject :)

I want to see Frankenstein!

I hope you get the chance. I only knew about it showing in our area because Lauren went to see the Avengers with her dad and excitedly told me about when it was showing when they got home. After, of course, reenacting the entire Avengers movie for me. It's like I was there.

Did you check if it's coming to your area? I am so buying it once a DVD comes out. Or maybe I should say if :(

It's here, I just need to get my ass to see it.
