Books, Movies, Movies made from books, Fancy Desserts, Pimples and Pimple Medication.
Em, #1, and I are off to see The DaVinci Code at the local cinema today. Em saw it a week ago this past Monday, right after we'd returned from vacation, but I wasn't interested in a movie that day so suggested that if he REALLY enjoyed it I'd accompany him on his second viewing. He ALWAYS views enjoyable movies multiple times, enjoyed this one, and #1 is available and interested so we're all going together this afternoon...to catch the cheap matinee prices. Em read the book and told me about parts of it; I've been able to keep up with the controversy surrounding Dan Brown's conjecture through the internet. Most of the controversy revolves around: Em says that the movie explains everything as you go along, so I think #1 and I will be okay just walking into the theater with no particular background knowledge. Wanted to have a place to discuss movies, books, fancy desserts, pimples and pimple medication here, though, because Silly-O and #2 are reading and making fancy desserts and we never took the time to discuss the books read or how it came to be that a fancy dessert was made (Please lie and say you made that dessert after seeing how easily I baked things, #2). I have an interesting pimple sitting between my eyebrows like a target on my face, so I thought I'd bring my pimple into the thread just for the hell of it. Isn't every day that an almost 60-year-old woman gets a pimple let alone a pimple THERE, so *I* thought that was interesting. ALSO, I read about how pimple medicine (not sure if brand matters) does a REALLY good job of eliminating itch from mosquito and fire-ant bites... better than anti-itch cream because it tries to suck all the poison out. EW! LOL.
