King Kong

King Kong is obviously the most hyped movie of the Christmas season this year. So was it any good? When we first got out of the movie (and after I took a much-held pee) I told Amanda there wasn’t anything I could complain about with the movie we’d just seen. After a little thought, I took that back. Pete Jackson could have cut probably twenty minutes off of the movie, mostly in the first act, and it would have still been great. I know you have to develop the characters, let us get to know them and all, but it still could have been tightened up.

Today was a bit busier than work was yesterday. After Amanda got off work we went out to pick up the Jetta. The XM is working fine and dandy now, and since they had to reset it yet again, we may be entitled to a renewed trial period. I’m hoping so, because we missed out on about half of the last one.

After work today Amanda and I dropped the Jetta off at the dealership because a part is coming in tomorrow to fix the problem with the XM radio. Again.

Anyway, I helped out with the cameras at church today. Someone else was trying their hand at directing, which was fine, but I got put on a mostly-stationary camera and I didn’t feel there was much artistic challenge to it, other than making sure I had good head room.

Amy Brower and Ben Farmer got engaged last night. Amy has been Amanda’s best friend since forever. She called us this morning and told us all about it. He did a good job- he’d gone out and bought an outfit- a coat, slinky black dress, the works, then took her out to Angus Barn.
