it’s all about the 13th now…

Well yes and good. back home. back at work. all of the above. It’s been a bit busy though. We went to Jim & Maddy’s wedding at the Grand Lodge, which is McMenamins hotel number 4 for us. Two or three more to go (we cannot quite decide about the White Eagle). It was good. And it was nice to see some folks I hadn’t seen in a long time. After that, our buddy Mark T came to town to see us. We had a fun ol’ time and he and Catie went to Movie Madness (hook up the VCR! It’s the home of all those old forgotten classics of the 80’s) and rented some movies that we watched. Which ones? You might ask…

Bonfire of the Vanities. Which, for what it was, I still found pretty entertaining. The low point would be the miscasting of Tom Hanks (totally not right for the role, these days they’d probably put Keanu in it…) and Bruce Willis, who seemed to be just wandering through the sets… Maybe still high off of his glory from Moonlighting…

Tarnation. Yeah. Pretty good. A bit unsettling at times and though the format was a bit odd, I kind of grew to like it. Plus the whole thing made me feel much better about my own family.

and now Catie and I have just finished watching What Happened Was…. Well it sure made me uncomfortable at times. I liked it though, makes one wonder how anyone gets through dating. I sure liked her story though it took me quite by surprise and I thought her comment about how once you have something interesting to say you are no longer interested was a good sentiment.

Also in mind, I finally got around to watching The French Connection. I liked it a good deal, though I’m rather a sucker for Gene Hackman, but I feel a bit surprised by its Oscar success. And Catie and I had a fun night of watching Friday the 13th and Friday the 13th, part 2. I sure like those old films. As I remember from years ago, I still prefer “part 2” quite a bit, but Catie liked the original better. They both really made me want to see Friday the 13th, part 3. Gimme that mask! Honestly, except for the downright horridly laughable Freddy Vs Jason, I think those are the only three I’ve seen. I seem to have the feeling that the rest just aren’t needed.
