Candles, makeup and gay boys, oh my!

Last night was much fun! I hosted a PartyLite candle & Mary Kay (for boys) party at David's Coffeehouse, and much fun and girlyness was had. We left with silky hands, moisturized faces and many stinky candle scents in our noses, and it was all a hoot. I ended up with some lotions for me and Q and a 3-wick candle, although I'll get some more once people put their orderes in. (If anyone wants anything let me know - the party books will be open until Sunday.) Many thanks to galtine1 for bring her PartyLite wares and tinyhand for showing us how to make ourselves more beautiful! And thanks to mike14780, fernanb, nolly, buddykat, samuraimeg and Bill for coming - I hope everyone had fun! (I know I did - I can't believe we were there kibbitzing until 11!) Maybe I'll do another one in the fall for Christmas for those who couldn't make it (and really, we did have a good time).

Other than that, it's been a boring week so far - work, work, some City of Heroes Monday night, and gaming tonight. Nothing much else planned for the week, which is good.

Movies meme

Having been tagged by both schnuder and minotaurs, I'll answer these:

  1. Total number of films I own on DVD/video: Probably almost 200, although most are packed away and more than half are on VHS. That's including the few series DVD sets I own, like Babylon 5 and Farscape.

  2. Last film bought: Clue and What's Eating Gilbert Grape? in the $4.88 bin at Wal*Mart (saw them while I was picking up stuff for Quincy and decided to go back and get them for myself).

  3. Last film that I watched: Touch Of Pink with Quincy before he left, and it's a very cute film. (God, has it been that long since I sat down and watched a movie? I guess - City of Heroes has been sucking up most of my time since he left.)

  4. Five films that I watch a lot or that mean a lot to me, in no particular order:

    1. Amadeus - Truly one of my favorite movies of all time. Rich, strong performances, wonderful music. Loved it.
    2. Aliens - One of the best sci-fi/action films of all time. Sigourney Weaver rocks my world.
    3. Lilo & Stitch - Brilliant Disney, and I wish they'd let more like these slip through the corporate cracks. Plus now that Q collects Stitch, it takes on a whole new meaning. :)
    4. Big Fish - Saw this shortly after Dad died, and, like Albert Finney, he was quite the big fish.
    5. A Simple Plan - Totally engaging film from start to finish. I was engrossed from beginning to end. Loved it.

  5. Pick on five people. Tag five people and have them put this in their journal: adventdragon, blackvinylangel, pansyfilmmaker, urban_bohemian and paladin_of_gaia.
