veteran's day

In observance of Veteran’s Day, I woke up early, got dressed and as usual drove 10 miles to the bank.

Only to discover that the bank was closed

“In Observance of Veteran’s Day”.

Gnashing my teeth, I got back in the car and drove home. As I was turning into the driveway, I spied the mailbox with the flag still up ; before leaving for the bank I had put my last netflix movie in the mailbox. This is when the light bulb went off and I realized that if the bank was closed then we wouldn’t be getting any mail either.

More gnashing of the teeth.

Also in observance of Veterans Day, I did nothing the rest of the day. I spent the day lounging on the couch watching movies: Just Like Heaven, Prime, The Station Agent.

And now for my three point observations:

Just Like Heaven
1) Reese Witherspoon’s character is in a hospital bed in a coma but her spirit is alive and well and annoying
2) Mark Ruffalo has the most kissable mouth. I just wanted to bite his lower lip.
3) The ending was too reminiscent of the St. Elsewhere series ending

1) Meryl Steep was perfection
2) This movie was NOT the laugh fest that the previews would have you believe
3) I suddenly realized that I am old enough to take a younger man as a lover and it won’t be illegal and that younger men are H O T (at least they are in the movies)

The Station Agent
1) Parts of NJ really ARE that beautiful
2) Michelle Williams = annoying
3) The main character was a little person named Fin.
As I was watching this movie and being drawn further the life of Fin, I had the MOST startling thought “he is so cute and even though he’s a little person I’d totally sleep with him”

Just the musings of an slightly politically incorrect, obviously horny woman.

Oh, brother. Clearly, DHM read my comments and now can think of TONS of things to comment on.

And voila! Perfect explanation of how s/he's able to learn her way around this crazy computer system. Didn't know how to use the "space" bar, but can obviously track people down...

We went to "Stranger Than Fiction" Sunday for #4's birthday. We were expecting something MUCH different, considering the previews AND the Will Ferrellness of the movie. We were all pleasantly surprised by the seriousness of it. #4, with his tremendous grasp of the dramatic, kept referring to it as his "favorite dramedy."

It was good. Ten thumbs up from this family.

I also have a little person comment, but I think I'll just make it into a post. Because I'm THAT politically incorrect. A hint: It involves the word "midget."

Nice, huh?

yet the most alarming thing in that whole post was the fact that you have to drive 10 miles to the bank? 10 miles? Yikes!

First, just wanted to let you know that if you had Blockbuster by mail, you could now return those sealed envelopes at the store and get a free in-store rental--perfect for days when the post office is closed!

Second, I loved Just Like Heaven (mostly because of Mark Ruffalo's mouth).

Third, I, too was surprised by the level of seriousness in Prime. I thought it was going to be more comedy than drama.

I have Prime at my house this second, and have been waiting to watch it. No reason for the wait, except that I haven't had the time or inclination to commit to a movie over 90 minutes long. But I plan on watching it this weekend.
