I survived!

Back to work on Tuesday; 200 new vacation hours, so before the night was over put in for one for Thursday (wife had an extra day off and works this weekend). We went to "Chronicles of Narnia" with my older son and his wife, came home for dinner and "Bewitched" and then when they went home slipped back out for the last showing of "Aeon Flux" at the multiplex. Today it was up early (for a 2nd shift worker), birthday shopping for grandaughter, then back to the cinema for "Rumor Has It" before I went to work and she got to watch SciFri.

Sometimes life is very very good!

I probably shouldn't admit going off now to watch Battlestar, should I?

:o)

if i see even goodnight and good luck before the oscars, i will be shocked. i keep telling myself that i will have more time for the movie theatre when my youngest is done with high school-in 4.5 more years! i can dream, right?

glad you are seeing so many films, and enjoying lives.

Having a 4:30 shift start helps a lot, you can catch a noon show and still have time to make it home and get ready for work. My wife works every other weekend, when she does she gets the Friday before and the Tuesday after off, so we catch a lot of early shows on those days to avoid the crowds when we can.

Good Night and Good Luck is one of the most powerful movies I've ever seen, as was "Syriana". I missed "Paradise Now" during it's one week run at the art house; those are the ones I never get to, the ones that get a one week stand and then they're gone. When "Off the Map" finally played here (Sam Elliot and Joan Allen) it was here a month before I got to it, and came out on video the next week; still I'm glad I saw it in the theatre just for the support of all the careers involved.
