I’m back. Been awhile since I’ve written on the ol’ bloggity. School finished for me (ie. I finished my last paper) on the 20th and it has been a whirlwind of holiday excitement since. Until about 3 days ago, when I planted my ass and refused to budge. I am officially ~relaxing~.Part of my relaxation/holiday has been to see a couple of movies. I think my years as a projectionist made me appreciate more the fun of going to a matinee solo. I saw The Golden Compass and Juno.The Golden Compass…apparently there’s been a fuss? Something about atheism? I didn’t see it, but then I am a heathen non-believer and also it’s apparently more prevalent in the sequel(s). Overall, I enjoyed it. But I enjoyed it like I do most adventure/Harry Potterish movies…probably will never see it again and will forget what it’s all about next week, anyway. Coveted the costumes, though. Dang.I have, as of the past year or so, become more sensitive. Perhaps not in the good way, but I will cry at the drop of a well timed hat. I hate that. It’s taken away my desire to see so many movies that I would otherwise probably check out. All I need is a mournful string section and I’m dabbing at my eyes with kleenex. Gad…what a sap I am! Anyway, the friendship that develops between the girl and the bear put me over the edge a few times. Really. Wtf?
I’m going to write about Juno in a different post. I am clearly in the minority on this one, so I have to concentrate on writing it properly…back in a sec.
