It was quite a day. Had the pleasure of watching the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre outdoors with the house they filmed the movie in just a few feet away. Also, some of the actors and the writer were at the event to answer questions and such. We had a blast, as you can imagine. I just saw this movie for the first time some months back and was blown away by 1. how creepy and artful the movie was, and 2. the fact that I had not watched it sooner. Definitely in my top 5 favorite horror movies, and it makes it even better that they filmed it just outside of Austin. They just don’t make movies like that anymore.
Yesterday was a good food day. I didn’t disappoint. Today was basically a vacation (we did leave town!) so I didn’t care if I was a little bad, and besides, I had a great workout this morning. Per Priscilla’s brilliant suggestion, we went to the famed Blue Bonnet Cafe in Marble Falls and had some amazing comfort food. I just had to have the country-fried steak sandwich with fries and a small salad. The cafe is famous for their pies, so we made sure the indulge properly. I had the peach and Derek had the banana cream. Mine was good but his was ridiculously good, and I was jealously glancing over at it while he ate. I wanted to take one of his “man bites” in which he’ll take a bite of something of mine and damn near eat half the item in one fell swoop, but I resisted the urge. The place was more like a diner, and you could just tell it has been there forever. So much charm. Other than that I ate a couple eggs and half a whole grain english muffin, smoked salmon avocado toast, pistachios, a handful of Ross’ corn nuts, a brisket taco with pickled onions and jicama slaw, half a pbj, and a couple beers at the show. Not too shabby. And now I’m about to go into a Benadryl coma and wake up tomorrow to do some serious school reading.
