don't bother with "beowulf" - we turned it off. well, i think curtis would have watched it through for the animation (he is a tech geek), but it was graphically violent, boring (who knew the two could go hand in hand?), vaguely cheesy, and not much better "motion caption animation" than the regular "computer animation" in shrek. and you know what? the fact that it's "literature" doesn't help it all. frankly, just cause it's an old manuscript doesn't mean it's actual literature, (keep an eye out for snarky comments from vincent .... ), it just means it's old. it may very well be interesting because of that, but c'mon. it was not even worth the 30 minutes of my life i wasted watching it. if it's on your "wanna see it" list, i heartily suggest you cross it off.
in brighter news, it's going to be a gorgeous day & the girls are off early, so sarah and i are taking them to duke gardens to hang out. i'll try to remember my camera to take pictures of all the baby birds, turtles, flowers and other glories of nature! every now and then a day is perfect - i hope this is one of them.
