Trip: Myrtle Beach

For our fifth anniversary, Karen & I went to Myrtle Beach. Friend Bonnie was profoundly generous in offering us use of her oceanfront condo!

(Moonlit scenes)

...and it was baby Kirsten's first time at the ocean!

Movie: Over The Hedge

The comic strip comes to life in a slapstick tale of forest critters encountering the sudden onslaught of suburbia. If the thought of a squirrel blowing canned spray cheese out his nose makes you laugh, this is for you ... and if it doesn't, it's not.

Movie: The Wedding Date

Well done insofar as standard chick-flicks go.

Watching people deal with the embarassingly painful consequences of mundane stupidities just doesn't work for me. In this case: on the verge of a wedding, we are to be entertained by the assorted clashing permutations of a failed engagement, a gigolo hired to make an ex-fiance jealous, who had what now-defunct relationships with whom, who finds out about those relationships when, who wants what relationship de-defunctified, etc. and somehow it all just works out into a happy ending.
