last night and
really enjoyed it.
Except for freakin' 3D. I have minimal depth perception anyway, so don't see much of the 3D in movies, but have to keep the damn glasses on or everything is blurry. And wearing the glasses OVER my glasses isn't particularly comfortable. Less so now, because my eyes are apparently (gasp) old enough to require some of them no-line bifocals, which means that for distance vision (like, say, from myself to the movie screen), I need to be using the top part of my glasses, which means I have to point my nose slightly downward, which means the damn 3D glasses will start strolling down my face. A lot of annoyance just so that "the car is coming is straight for me!" And this was some of that unnecessary-to-the-movie crappy 3D they added in post. I think it's all part of their secret plan to make me pony up another $14 to see it again in 2D as the Good Lord intended.
It's been a while, so I should probably report in: Job still busy; house still unpainted (but samples are all over the walls); cat still cute. (After years
of doing nothing with it, she has finally discovered a small ball of yarn a friend once gave her. Or, more particularly, she's discovered The Art Of Decorating With Yarn. My living room looked like something out of Mission Impossible
-- all criss-crossed with lines like some laser security system.) Taxes filed; refund received (and largely spent). Ski trip with the 5-year-old was fun. He skis about as well as I do, now. I may have to take another lesson so I am not so quickly surpassed. Oh! I'll be in London in just over two weeks, if anyone is up for tea. :)
