Post-holiday Perambulations

Today the boys went to look at an airplane that’s for sale at the airport in Albuquerque. (My sister’s husband, his father, and my stepfather are all pilots.) The women went to Nob Hill (route 66) to look at a LYS and do some home & kitchen shopping. Guess which group I was with?

My mom picked up some great yarn to try the Nepalese vest from Folk Vests. I restrained myself and continued to work on the Sooper Seekrit Projekt. I’ve got photos of everything which I shall post when I get back to my own computer.

This evening we went to see Master and Commander. Most of the folks weren’t too impressed with it, but I really liked it. Great action, and I really appreciated the difficulty they must have had filming it. Some of the naval scenes were very impressive.

But having seen it, I can now say I’ve got two things up on Russell Crowe:
1. I can really knit.
2. I play my own violin.

Eat that, Russell. :-)

    You make me laugh!! I haven’t seen the movie, yet, but it is on my list. Looking forward to your pictures.

    Well, you also have the advantage of not being a complete raging moron!

    I was really struck by how bad the violin dubbing was — the bowing did not match Crowe’s movements at all!

    I also liked the movie, but I do wish the filmmakers had placed more emphassis on the friendship between the doctor and commander, since that is one the unique aspects of the series.

    Russell Crow! You definetly have more than better skills. Call me crazy, I just don’t see the appeal. But yes good acting. Hope the turky-sicle was delicious. Have a safe trip.

    Hi David,

    Sounds like you have been having a great time in Albq.

    I also saw Master & Commander and really loved it. It is very differenet from anything else I have seen in a while. I really like the themes of leadership and friendship in this movie. And I like that the director did not feel obligated to throw in a romantic plot line.

    Enjoy the good food in New Mexico!
