But before we went outdoors, we spent Friday night decidedly indoors watching Scott Derrickson's new movie, Sinister, which Matt's been wanting to see (his earlier film, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, is one of the few that has legitimately scared Matt). Despite my anxious proclivities, I'm actually pretty hard to scare when it comes to movies . . . and this one spooked me. And I was genuinely interested in the plot and characters, which was a plus. And Ethan Hawke is cute, so there's that. In any case, if you're looking for a scary movie for Halloween, try Sinister--I actually liked it, and I'm not even a movie person!
On Saturday, we took Jasper to the pumpkin patch. I "embarrassed" Jasper (his word--heehee) by rockin' a flashy pumpkin headband. Hey, go hard or go home, kid.

On Saturday night, Matt and I went here to see my lovely Diana read her poems as a part of LitCrawl, the annual literary pub, etc. crawl on the concluding night of San Francisco's Litquake Festival (there are more than 85 venues on this one night). It was CRAZY in the Mission, let me tell you! And yet I found a stellar parking spot, heard my girl read poems that we'd workshopped together, and had a romantic dinner with my man at Luna Park (I had a groupon--$25 for $55 of food & drink!).
I don't even have the words for that dessert right there on the bottom right. It involved a decadent brownie and butter something ice cream and peanut brittle and salted caramel sauce. HOLY MOTHER it was good. My tummy hurt after such a rich (and caloric) meal, but it was worth it.
We took it easy on Sunday--slept in, made coffee, did a little work, took a walk around the neighborhood, went to the local produce market, had some pumpkin ales, made dinner, watched bad tv. It was so nice to have a mellow day together after a really busy Friday & Saturday.
What were you up to this weekend? Hope everyone's Monday is as painless as possible!
