Last night, we had Amber over for dinner, since it'd been ages since we'd seen her. We made enchiladas, salad, rice, beans, and brownies (and were all suitably stuffed :) ), chatted, and played a little speed Scrabble. It was good to see her, and a good visit.

Today so far has mostly been homework, knitting, and NPR. We ventured out to Blue Ridge to see Mr. and Mrs. Smith, finally (us and half of Raleigh.) I really, really, really liked it. I'm all bouncy now, and wish I could go out and kick some ass. ;)

Under the category of things that don't make sense: why was the trailer for the Transporter II, which featured something like 50 people in 2 minutes being blown away and a kid in mortal danger, rated for all audiences, but the trailer for the Brothers Grimm, which featured nothing more dangeorous than a violent tree, rated PG-13? That doesn't make a damn bit of sense. Secondly, why were there kids who looked to be six and seven years old watching a movie with that much violence? They were actually pretty well behaved, but, call me old-fashioned, but do kids that age really need to see two people who are playing a married couple trying to blow the hell out of each other?
