monday meanderings

I hab a terribo code.

So, in between naps, I thought I would post a little something.

A couple of good movies I've seen recently:

Reign Over Me. I don't usualy watch R movies and this one has absolutely unnecesary terrible language and it also has a lot of references to certain sexual behavior. But it's all talk, no action. I hate that kind of language. Some argue that it's realistic. Fine. I hear it enough in real life. I don't want to hear it in my movies. But, in spite of the language, I really, really liked this movie. And I've been trying to figure out why, exactly. I like Adam Sandler and Don Cheadle both. But I have certainly seen Adam Sandler movies I didn't like and there are some I haven't seen at all because, well... they're just too dumb even for me. But this movie is very smart. It is deep and it is very moving. It's about the power of pain and denial. And the redemptive power of friendship. No man is an island. And while sometimes we may need to find our own way, we really can't find it without help.

Spider Man 3. I didn't even see number 2, but I don't feel like I missed anything. I was able to pick right up. Again, this movie portrade redemption and forgiveness. It even had a "foot of the cross" experience of repentance and cleansing. We all make choices and we are in control of those choices. It has a great message.

Keep sending in those introductions!

  2. So sorry you are sick. We were wondering where you were at WFTJ. Hope you feel better real soon.

    Sign my guest book and register to Win The Penny by Joyce Meyer.

  3. Hope you feel better soon! I didn't know Adam Sandler made any serious movies. Sounds interesting.

  4. I read The Penny, by Joyce Meyer. I really enjoyed that book. Made me a little uncomfortable because of some of the topics...but sometimes I need to get out of my little shell. This world isn't always so wonderful.

  5. Kathy, Spanglish was a semi-serious movie, too, that Sandler was in. I liked it. It is about choices. I like movies that show the consequences of a bad choice or else demonstrate someone making a good choice.

    Everyone, thank you for well - wishes, (ha ha that's a pun). I am feeling much better!

  6. Kay, When I get internet on MY computer I will be a regular if thats okay with you. I really like your blog and your friends have very nice ones also. Julie

  7. Hi Kay,
