It's Friday, so it must be movie night

Yeah, I know. We watch an awful lot of movies. Not much else to do around here. I'd prefer hanging out at my best friend's house.... making dinner or ordering pizza, playing some games. But there's that little matter of 1600+ miles separating us. So the kids and I go to the movies.

I took the 3 youngest to see Doogal this afternoon. Cute movie. Not as "pure" as Curious George, but still a solid G rating. The kids got a kick out of the references to other movies. Our drive home was full of much discussion of characters and favorite parts, unlike the trip home after Curious George. Jon Stewart made a great villain and I loved William H. Macy's Brian the snail. I wonder if the character was written for him.... it was classic Bill Macy.

I've talked to my Brian (who has actually been writing at his blog while gone) a few times today. Poor guy. Today was a short day for the conference so his boss/partner dragged him to Laguna Beach for the afternoon/evening. He had to walk along the beach and browse shops and art galleries in the town. And worst of all... they were eating dinner in a restaurant overlooking the Pacific Ocean. He's going to need a vacation when he gets back. (Oh Donna.... I forgot the symbols for sarcasm. Oh well.) I sure hope he can stand 2 more days of being down there. (And Brian, if you read this... I'm not mad. Much. *G*)

We'll eat dinner overlooking the ocean when I come home. I love you even if u are really MAD.

I feel sorry for him, too--life is rough when you walk on the beach and eat looking at the water. *sigh*

Wow, your Brian sounds like he's really suffering in Newport Beach. Poor guy, it's worse than being sent to Cleveland.
