yellow, cinephiles, and exploding cookies

Three beautiful things from my past week:

Mr. Sunflower

1. I already devoted an entire post to them, but those sunflowers really merit inclusion for being a balm to the soul.

2. Rudi and I saw The Incredibles 2 on Tuesday night, which let out just in time for the final 20 minutes of Dirty Dancing showing across the street in the waterside park. Tonight, I headed up to my local park, where they were screening Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, while Rudi caught a 70mm print of 2001: A Space Odyssey at one of the art houses.

3. I am a fan of the traditional Oreo flavor combination and tend not to believe in the mutations that have popped up in the past decade (different colors are okay, though). But I couldn’t pass up the chance to try their Fourth of July cookies, Firework Oreos, which had red and blue pop rocks embedded in the regular creme. The first two cookies I didn’t quite get the big deal, until Rudi told me I was eating them too quickly and that I had to let them sit on my tongue for a minute. Same great taste, but with little fizzing bursts that make your cat turn his head.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world lately?

I like the firework Oreos and also the lemon ones. The rest are either meh or I haven’t tried them. As they are not exactly the healthiest of foods, that’s OK. Sunflower seeds are good food, though, and they look so lovely while they’re growing. I doubt Oreo flowers look nearly as nice.

@Karen: I want them to issue a sampler pack with 3-4 cookies of each variety in a single package. Now I want to see Oreo flowers…

@kathy b: Deer are beautiful, except when they’re eating your plants…
