Hello, blog friends. How was your weekend? Mine was good. It was snowy and cold here in The CO, so other than some quality dog walking time, I spent most of it indoors.
We did go out on Saturday, though. You know what I think? Sushi and a movie = FUN. Who’s with me?
We saw Slumdog Millionaire. It was my second attempt to see it (the first time it was sold out.) Actually, our show was sold out too. Now, with the Best Picture Oscar nomination, I’m sure it will continue to sell out.
I found out this morning that two of the movies we’ve seen recently are nominated for Best Picture. (Benjamin Button and Slumdog Millionaire. ) While I enjoyed Benjamin Button, if I were Oscar, I’d give it to Slumdog. No question. The story was original. The acting was great. The music was good. They did a fantastic (and heartbreaking) job of showing life in the Indian slums. It was very well done. Have you seen either? Which do you think should win?
Oh, and in other random news, check out this article I read today. Crazy, huh? What did they do … send a corporate memo: “We are implementing a new, company-wide policy, effective immediately. Go home and do it.” How do you think this would go over in the U.S.A.?
Well, that’s about it for this Monday morning update. In case you’re wondering, I’m still updating my photo blog, although I seem to miss as many days as I post. Taking a picture a day is challenging! I’ll try to get better … promise. If you haven’t researched the Freedom of Choice Act, please do it.
Have a super Monday! Toodles.
