Yep, kisahawklin came by yesterday, and got here about 5 pm, which was perfect. I made spaghetti... and forgot that I still had some of the non-gluten type, so we got mixed regular and gluten-free spaghetti noodles - *L*! I'm no great cook, but, fortunately, kisa didn't complain. Got to do a LOT of talking, which was great, and we were soon off to the movies to see "Brokeback Mountain" (my second time, her seventh?), and, yes, a preview again of On a Clear Day (squeee!), and previews of what look like some other great movies. Really enjoyed the movie again, although I still say it's almost evenly Jack's and Ennis' movie, rather than mainly Ennis' point of view. Such good acting all the way around. Both of us, I think, were really impressed by the performance of the actress playing Jack's wife, when she's on the phone with Ennis... a couple of little almost-whimpers escape her that just kick you in the gut when you hear them. Amazing.
We then ended up watching "The Day After Tomorrow" - just because it was there, and it has Jake - *L*! And did "duelling laptops" as we watched.
A nice late wakeup at 10:30 am, more internet, and then off to see "Capote". But, you'll be very proud of me anonypooh; I played some CoRo on the way, and kisa liked it, so I gave her one of my extra "Big Fear" CD's. We may have another convert - *muahahaha!!!!!* "Capote" was interesting, but it's difficult to say what it's about - except that it may be about the difficulty of writing a non-fiction book about living people, in that you can't help getting involved with them, but at the same time, you're also "using" them for your book. And about what it must be like to feel strangely identified with a man who's killed a family of four in cold blood. For me, what I really liked was seeing the portrayal of Harper Lee - writer of one of my favorite books of all time, "To Kill a Mockingbird", and childhood friend of Truman, who accompanies him on his trip to research the book. And, yes, I managed to force a copy of that film ("To Kill a Mockingbird"), and a great one with Chris Cooper ("Lone Star") onto kisa before she left - *G*. Hope she gets a chance to watch him. Chris Cooper plays a character in this movie, too, which is how he popped into the picture.
But now she's off - to Columbus! I hope she has a good ride there, and isn't too late for dinner (the description of which sounds delicious!). Kisa, it was so good to get to talk to you and get to know you more, and you're always welcome at my house. Keep having a great time traveling! (((((hugs)))))
