we braved the Blue Ridge opening today, going to the 1:00 showing of National Treasure. since it was the first showing of the day, it wasn't too crowded. the theater was clean and nice, and gone are the surly college student employees. it was very surreal for a Blue Ridge experience.

the movie? it was great big huge fun. i was pretty skeptical, i have to admit - the premise sounded sketchy. but they actually made it work. the heroine was hot, but smart, witty, and non-fussy. Nick Cage was cute. there was a fair amount of geekiness going on. i may well have a new favorite Nicholas Cage action movie, and he's got some good ones.

beforehand, we did lunch at Golden Dragon. i had hot and sour soup in honor of the clouds that were hanging around. after we came out of the theater, the sun had come out, and now it's simply glorious out there again. i love spring.

we tried to go to the library, but it was closed. feh. you'd think that i could remember, since i didn't have school today.

i should do homework, but all i really want to do is laze in my living room and knit. le sigh. :)
