We all have a rather nasty cold this week, so pardon the mess and my slow replies. Two points of interest regarding it: this is the first time that I can remember where Laurel has caught something before me and only the second time Vogon's taken a sick day since I've been here.

Laurel's been pretty good this week about taking medicine from the medicine spoon, but she was so difficult this morning I wound up using a graduated dropper and giving her infant cold drops. She still asked for a Sore Throat Pop afterward, so I think Vogon found a hit when he picked those up for her.

Vogon and I have been watching the extended version of Ray in fits and starts this week. I like it, aside from the length. (If not for DVDs, I would have virtually stopped seeing new movies after Laurel was born.) We watched Lil' Pimp in one sitting late Monday night and I laughed my butt off through it; I fuzzed in and out through Saw and Hero yesterday. From what I saw of the latter, I'd actually like to watch it again sometime when I'm not sick so I can follow the plot.

I'm sad that you've been sick. . . Hope you feel better soon!

(And don't bother with Saw. It was really bad. So bad that I felt shame for Carey Elwes and retroactively like The Princess Bride just a little less now. (But I still heart Monica Potter.))

sorry about the sick thing. been there, no, wait, am there. :D but it does get better.

let me recommend another carey elwes movie for you. the cat returns, an anime. laren can watch it, and even i was facinated. carey does the voice of the good guy. jason bought all 3 of the new animes out, and i've watched 2 of those. this has no apocolepse, no sex, no drugs and booze. just fun and sweet stuff. i'm sure it's at blockbuster. if you find it, lemme know how you like it, ok? (tim curry voices the bad guy. how cool is that?)

I waited to see Hero because it got mixed reviews from my Chinese friends. (They were right about a lot of the politics and the down play of the pure bloodthirstiness of the Qin emporer.)

But, in retrospect, I found it to be visually magnificent and emotionally profound in ways that I've not found in a movie for many years.

I hated Ray. It's well made and honest, but... sometimes the honesty's too much. (And, then I have to break down and... no, no, not going there... not, I tell you!)
