Do tigers eat lasagna?

Happy Sunday!  Happy International Women’s Day!

We had friends (not tigers) visit for dinner tonight. I made lasagna again – and it was pretty delish. I am very big into the lasagna thing at the moment. It’s an adaptation of my Mum’s bestest recipe and my mate Kim’s bestest recipe. Once I have it down, I will share it with you too.

It’s been a very quiet Sunday. I didn’t get out of my pjs until 12. Phil and I spent a lot of time this morning watching movie trailers. I think I would like to see Gigantic (yay Zooey, and yay the guy from Little Miss Sunshine) and Big Man Japan because you can’t really get better than giant monsters in Tokyo, and of course Coraline – hopefully in 3D. I’m sure I’ll also eventually see Funny People and Year One too. I was once standing in a video library staring vaguely at the movies and Mick, who runs the video store, was helping a woman choose a movie. He kept suggesting oodles of things and she kept saying “Naaaah.” And then eventually she said, “Mick, I just don’t do comedy.” I am impressed that you can eliminate an entire uber genre like that. Then again, I know someone who only does action / thrillers, and someone else who refuses to see anything with subtitles so I guess maybe it’s a common thing. Actually, maybe if I hadn’t met Phil I may not have “done sci-fi” but I’m coming around to it. Maybe I’ll even see Watchmen…

    Hmm, so maybe instead of being annoyed, I should be impressed, that my other half grits his teeth as soon as the words “romantic” and “comedy” find their way into the same sentence?

  2. If you can get ahold of the Firefly series dvds, you might want to give those a try. I’m not a sci-fi girl, either, but got sucked in to the (short lived) series when I brought it home for my husband to watch.

    AAwww, it was national book day this week in the UK, my little boy went to school dressed as The Tiger Who Came to Tea!

    I loved the illustrations in that book. I started doing sci-fi since my partner’s such a huge fan but after 15 years, I’m still not doing horror.

  5. I love ‘The Tiger Who Came To Tea’ – because we are the book and the birthday twins. I love it that there was beer in the fridge in that book! I love Zooey Deschanel. I don’t like monsters though. Except for Cookie Monster. Does that count?

  6. Tigers mightn’t eat lasagna but they do eat hapless teenagers who think it’s a good idea to take a short cut over three fences, through a zoo.

    I don’t do thrillers. I would have no fingernails left.

    Hmmm, I don’t do horror – I just don’t see the point really. I also avoid anything containing Jim Carrey or Kevin Costner, but that’s good taste surely?

    Hey! I remember that book. My Dad used to read it to me when I was little and I’d completely forgotten about it until now. Gigantic looks like a good movie but for some reason it’s rated R…

    I love that book! I bought The Tiger Who Came to Tea when I was in India for my niece.

    I bought that The Tiger Who Came to Tea at a garage sale for 20 cents, it came with a cd with a lovely britsh accent. I have never heard of that book otherwise in the US, and my daughter loves it!Karen
