I had such great intentions today... that I'd get work done on the pattern and cut out the fabric and everything. Instead, I had a wonderful lunch with a friend followed by a nap. I didn't sleep well last night; between the problems on the message board and my hip, I couldn't sleep. The nap today helped quite a bit.
My hip has been hurting differently... I call it my hip, but it's really my lower back. There are two disks that are degenerating there. When the vertebrae shift, they pinch different nerves. The one currently being pinched is along my left inner thigh. Sigh. I haven't lost feeling there or anything but it's really hard to walk. I very much hope that my back resets itself and I can walk more easily again.
This evening we watched Shakespeare in Love. I wasn't sure that I'd like the movie, even though it is a costume drama. I don't usually like romantic comedy... or any type of romance-type movies, because you sort of know how it's going to end. But I kept finding my gaze drawn to the screen and watching closely, completely caught up in the story. This is a rare thing for me.
This is a great movie - it's funny, it's compelling, and the acting is superb (I especially liked the Queen... she was everything I thought a queen should be, and more). The costumes were definitely amazing - intricate and beautiful. If you haven't seen it, I think you should.
