....Of Lap Blankets and Movies

One of the reasons my reading has slowed up so much is that I haven't stopped crocheting yet... this is another one of those "finish up extra yarn" things.. it's not all that big and has a very curly edge.. so I call it a lap blanket.. it is draped over a small chair in the cowboy corner.

I discovered that the "curly edging" makes it near impossible to fold! argh!

it's not very big.. but then again that's why it's called a "lap blanket".








. hmmmm, there's a warm white body on the blanket!   I guess I should have put it away huh?! ....


And this is what I was doing when I should have been putting the blanket away...

 I saw a movie on TV  called Doom...
Cutie Pie was in it. (Karl Urban) But, the movie was actually more a vehicle for "the Rock".

Plot Summary for  Doom (2005)
Based on the popular video game. In the not too distant future, humans have successfully colonized the planet Mars. Here scientists were experimenting on naturally occurring substances and using the colonizing humans as guinea pigs. The experiment went horribly wrong. Now, a group of marines and a scientist named Samantha Grimm are going to find out what happened. They teleport to Mars via a system known as the "Arch". What they find are gruesome monsters hell bent on death and destruction. Samantha's brother John is also one of the marines sent to Mars to help.

I had never heard of the movie before but while scrolling through the "guide" on the TV I spotted Urban's name and decided to check it out.

It was too dark for my taste.. I guess they were saving electricity when they made the movie...

But.. cute is cute no matter what!!

I liked DOOM. But then I liked the video game it was based on too.

Your blankets are so gorgeous! I couldn't crochet something like that in a million years, I'm sure. At least Boo Boo Kitty appreciates your hard work! :D
