sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things

Over the weekend

we got the summer clothes out of storage and passed out. I just have a few more things to pack away, and then I’ll be through with that task for another few months, like til October.

And we watched movies.

On Alexander: I had a hard time following this movie, because of the time shifts. I suppose it was a combination of things. Lack of sleep lately affects my short term memory, so I am not as able to draw connections as I usually am. I confess also that I have forgotten much of what I have read on Alexander, and had read nothing of his mother at all. Combined with a small tv screen which hindered me reading the dates, and the knitting in my hands which also hindered date reading I was left vaguely…unsure at times exactly what was going on.

On Brokeback Mountain: Unsatisfactory movie experience here. I don’t consider this to be the love story it was touted to be. Spoiler here: If it was truly 2 men caught up by surprise, then Jack would not have gone to Mexico. I find on consideration that Ennis was the truer partner, though it was Jack who was portrayed as desperate. The end was touching, and I was appalled at what happened to Jack. On the technical side, I found Heath Ledger to be so mumbly that I had to have the subtitles on to understand him. Do all gay men need to have a fist-fight first?

On One Last Dance: This one gets a thumbs up. I have long been a fan of Patrick Swayze, and dance, so those were a big bonus right there. This one was a real love story, with a happy ending for all. Understandable even at 3AM. Of the three of them, this is the only one I’d care to see again.

Well, time to quit playing Siskel and Eibert here, I suppose. DD#5 thinks she needs my attention.

Tonight I teach class again. I am knitting along, and yes, I’ve finished my homework 😉
