Movie day with my brothers

Got up this morning and discovered that the milk I bought last night was three days past it's sell by date, and had turned. So I went out to the bagel shop for breakfast and coffee, and then bought more milk at the discount store next door.

Showered, dressed, and got picked up by Oldest Brother, who had picked up Middle Brother from his group home. We went out to see The House With a Clock in it's Walls. It was pretty good, I don't remember enough about the book to know how faithful it was, but it played well as a movie.

After the movie we went to target to try and buy the glow necklaces that [personal profile] mashfanficchick and I had been unsuccessful in getting on Tuesday, but they still didn't have them. I did buy six bags of the Halloween erasers though to give out.

After that we went to the Halloween Spirit shop that's opened up in the space where Babies R Us used to be. Was a lot of fun looking around, and Oldest Brother bought a black mask to wear on Halloween.

Then we went to Five Guys as usual after the movies, and discovered to our sadness that that Five Guys location is closing on Oct 1 for good. There is another Five Guys in Bay Terrace, we'll have to start going there I guess.

Came back to my apartment and Oldest Brother helped me change the light bulb that had blown out. We hung out for awhile, and then they had to go. I did write a little more of my fic while Oldest Brother napped and Middle Brother listened to music.

After they left I Skyped the FWiB. We talked for awhile, but not long. He was having trouble with another patient, with dementia, who keeps coming into his room.

After that I went into my bedroom and finally stated reading the Octavia Butler book I picked up at the Strand the last time I was there. It's very good. The title is Dawn, it's the first of a trilogy.

And that's about all there is to say.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. My brothers.

3. Good movies.

4. Good books.

5. Halloween.

6. Beautiful weather.
