Looks like you've done some of the fun stuff; good for you!

Looks like you're getting all of the important stuff done. I would have been dissappointed if you hadn't eaten that Dove icecream bar yet. :)

You've got to try Ben and Jerry's Black and Tan ice cream. Cream Stout and Chocolate--YUM!

Posted by: Kim from Hiraeth at August 19, 2006 08:59 PM

Kim, I ALMOST bought that one!

(Dove won out because it was on sale. . . Ever the practical mommy.)

Good night and good luck is a chick flick?

Could have fooled me :).

Seriously though, it was really great commentary on society today and (from an apolitical standpoint) a culture of fear that is pervasive amongst us.

Other warning though, there is an obvious agenda that comes at you like a locomotive if you're not careful...


Posted by: Pete at August 20, 2006 01:19 AM

Yeah. . . quite an agenda. Enough that Hubby and I didn't want to "waste" one of our few times together to watch it. But a friend told me about a part of it that has motivated me to watch it anyway. . . I started it last night, but fell asleep right away.

Posted by: TulipGirl at August 20, 2006 11:38 AM


I am ever the practical mommy, too. It was on sale but it won't have to be on sale the next time. You really do need to try it.

Posted by: Kim from Hiraeth at August 20, 2006 01:00 PM

Hmmmm. . . Maybe I'll make that my incentive. Finish the housework, and then run out for ice cream for when Hubby gets home. *grin*

Really? Which part? You guys don't strike me as the type that would want or be into a movie like that.

Personally, I just appreciated Murrow's character, in general. It was sort of that willingness to speak truth into a situation that needed it. Sure, it was a fictionalized account and, like you said, Clooney comes at it with his own personal beef against the current administration.

But still, Murrow's portrayal was just engaging.


Posted by: Pete at August 20, 2006 06:59 PM

Hey, I see you didn't finish the fridge/freezer. I dislike this job and so hired it out for $5.00 to a more than willing older child who did better than I.

I don't pay for regular jobs around the house, but when I want something extra done and someone is eager to earn a little extra it is always a blessing to us both.

Just a thought!

Posted by: Mist at August 23, 2006 12:18 AM

Good idea, Mist!

I got the worst of it done, but didn't do the "deep clean" I wanted to do. . . Ah, well. . .

Posted by: TulipGirl at August 23, 2006 10:22 PM

Dove Chocolate/Cherry Courtship Ice Cream

Thank goodness you got to that one!

Oh well, on Good Night and Good Luck. :-) Maybe another time. There's a great scene with a courageous underdog standing up to narcissistic bully run amok. I found that inspiring.

Posted by: Kathy at August 23, 2006 11:36 PM

Kathy--that's why I got it! And as it is Netflix. . . Well. . . I might get to it tomorrow night while Hubby is at work. *GriN*
