Movie Nite

Awesome screenings of these two gems, at Casa Sanborn last eve.

Unbreakable was fantastic: Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and Robin Wright Penn. I loved The Sixth Sense, just liked Signs, and thought The Village was pretty good. But THIS is amazing. Not as obvious. But definitely good vs. evil. Bruce as a reluctant hero is really well done.

Spider-Man was a perfect second choice, continuing the "those with power have a responsibility to use that power for good," theme. I actually never expected to like this movie (well, yeah, I was a bit nervous about all the web-swinging through cityscape), but I did did did. The only thing that went against the grain--that upside-down kiss-in-the-rain is supposed to be the best movie kiss of the year. NOT! Otherwise I totally believed their attraction for each other, and their place in the world. Now I can continue to Spider-Man 2!

Thanks for a great school-nite event!

Freelance Finished

In the midst of the holiday blitz I also got Sam's lampshade painted (to match his Looney Tunes wall border), and Carol's granddaughter's dollhouse base.

Actual Thank

Yes, we did actually have THE Thanksgiving Feast. And it was graced by Aunt Nancy and Uncle Pat. Mindy debuted her carving skills, and we had quite the pie buffet (even one that was edible, despite the forgotten ingredient of ... sugar!).
