morning coffee

(no subject)

It was a quiet weekend. On Saturday, we wanted to go to a restaurant called The Siding for brunch, but found it was closed for renovation (odd, as it has only been open a year or two and was quite posh inside). Instead, we went to the Alberta Diner, and since it was busy there ended up sitting at the counter on stools with uncomfortable metal seats (like old-fashioned tractor seats), feeling like we were about to slide off. Still, it was a decent brunch and a different experience.

I rented a couple of older DVDs, Big Fish (which I liked a lot) and Donnie Darko (which I didn't).

I'm currently re-reading Little, Big by John Crowley. I read it about 20 years ago and remember that I enjoyed it and thought it was very well-written, but I can remember almost nothing about the characters or plot. Which makes it great for re-reading.
