Out and About.

Musical cars twice this week: it's been a year since Kermit the Hybrid came home to us, so inspections come in December. I have no court tomorrow, so I'm dropping off tonight and will take Eleanor to work in Iggy tomorrow. She had a late doctory appointment, so we're going out somewhere near our mechanic's place for an Engagement Anniversary dinner.

Wednesday morning, Kermit then goes home to the Rochester dealer who first sold him five years ago. There's a recall on the hybrid battery programming; it's just down the road from our office there, and it supposedly will only take an hour, so I'll just wait with it and call for a ride from and/or to only if it goes beyond that.

Eleanor made a yummy ravioli last night, and we ate while watching a spy movie called Breach, with Chris Cooper, Ryan Philippe and Laura Linney in the lead roles. Slow paced, but it really had to be, to convey how slow and deliberate the process of demote-ing a spy agency really is.

By "ate while watching," I of course mean "while watching wherever we could sit"- because the sofa quickly became ocupado:

Well yeah, you can't be expected to MOVE them! hahahaha. I have eaten many a meal standing for this very reason.

So do you recommend "Breach"? It sounds good, but very slow movies do not tend to hold my interest as well.

I'd say try it- give it half an hour or so. It sets up enough of the premise and the pace that if you make it through that, it will hold your attention for the duration. The DVD also has the Dateline piece about the actual crime, and the resemblance of Hanssen to Chris Cooper is startling.

i routinely get up for something and come back to find one of the other of my dogs has stolen my spot. i call them "spot thieves", but they dont care. i may occasionally throw a treat in their crate to reclaim my spot...
