And, clearing out the archives, a post from May:
Quickly, because I don’t have the time or brain for a proper, full-length update:
I have a new temporary roommate. I’m nervous about it, because I’ve never lived with anyone else before and I know how fussy I can get about some things (and completely uncaring about others), but we’ll see how it goes. It’s only for 2, maybe 3 months at worst, so it really shouldn’t be that awful.
I’m a mean mom and tossed out a bunch of cardboard boxes that Venus liked to hide behind. She still hides in the same location, but it doesn’t seem to be nearly as effective.
I saw Pirates 3 on the weekend. Didn’t stay through the credits, but I found a clip of the scene at the end, and I found discussion on what it means. Be warned, the movie is long — including the five million commercials and trailers we saw, it ends up running 3 hours. It’s also somewhat confusing, and feels like it’s lacking some of the character that really helped set the tone for the first movie, and somewhat for the second, too.
I saw Shrek 3 last weekend, disappointing as well. I liked some of the musical touches — Danse Macabre, “One” from A Chorus Line, the original Snow White song, “My Favourite Things,” but overall… eh.
I watched Epic Movie with R and N. Not a good movie, which was about what I expected. Possibly slightly better than Date Movie, but not by too much.
