The Dark Tower

It’s a tradition that I see a movie before, on the day or after my birthday. This year’s movie choice is “The Dark Tower”.

I started reading the book. I’ve read a few of Stephen King books. I’m a fan of Idris Elba. So, this should be a good movie?

I felt that they didn’t explain how the “Man in Black” came to be. I understand that there are 7 books in the series and it seemed that they fast forward things in the movie.

The special effects were good but not “awesome”. I liked the movie. As I was watching Idris on the screen, I kept thinking to myself…he would make a great James Bond. =]

By the way, there was only 5 of us on a Thursday, 2:45 pm showing.


Sharkey’s Woodfired Mexican Grill

Hubby and I went to the Tualatin, Oregon location. It was during dinner time.

We ordered and sat down. People started coming in during the dinner rush hour. I had nachos with steak and we didn’t have to wait long. The nachos had a healthy, fusion look. Kind of fusion style.

The tortilla chips were thin, fresh and crispy. It was delicious!

This is my second place since I move to Oregon in January, where I’ve had nachos and this place so far is my favorite.

Pizza Stone

Just recently a friend of ours mentioned about making home made pizza and said that a “pizza stone” makes a big difference when it comes to the taste and texture of the pie.

I bought one and that is what hubby and I will be having dinner. I’ll post the end result later..

Found this at Bi-Mart for 11 bucks.
