Ech I'm at work today. I'm thinking of this past weekend to console myself. Atleast today's holiday like President's Day is considered a floating holiday in my office. Meaning I can take it off on another day. The weekend was good! Niel and I ate really yummy foods, ran errands and watched movies. We viewed The Brothers Grimm with Heath Ledger and Matt Damon. I am so glad I didn't go to the theater to see the movie. I was so disappointed. The acting was fine but it was lacking in something and I couldn't put my finger on it. From a score of 1 to 5 I would give it a 2. The other movie was Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie. Very funny. It was an hour and half of extra footage from Anchorman and had another storyline prepared incase the plot with the panda wasn't enjoyed by the test audience. It was released as a separate DVD. We also finally saw The Book of Daniel on TV. We taped the first two episodes but only saw episode 1. I really like it. It's a bit predictable and the characters are transparent but it is also funny and sweet. It sort of reminded me of a short lived series "A Year In The Life." Our favorite scenes were with the Daniel the minister(Aidan Quinn) and Jesus. Now that is my kind of Jesus. He wasn't preachy or judgmental. All he does is try to guide Daniel into being the best person he can be. He still loves Daniel even with all of his family problems. I can't understand why some stations were banning it. What family doesn't have their problems? What preachers aren't human? I don't get why people in general use God's name anyway as an excuse to be hateful? We also got a 101 project done. We put all of our DVD's in a CD booklet to clear up some of the space underneath our television.

Im sorry to hear that about the Brother Grimm, the trailer made it look so good. We have it on our Netflix queue, but maybe I need to remove it.

Those trailer designers are genius. They make mediocre and crappy look phenominal.
