Well, since TV has fallen flat lately even though the writers’ strike is over (and I heard a rumor that even though they still had 13 episodes to air, even though “Cavemen” left with that many unaired episodes, they’re not cancelled, but have been renewed. I haven’t gotten any confirmation on that, but it is exciting to hear!), I’ve been watching more movies again. We did get Showtime when we switched from DirecTV to cable (because of the discounted attached Internet), but of course now “Dexter” and “Weeds” aren’t on! But at least we have caught up on their movies.
Recently I saw “Clerks 2” (good), “Nacho Libre” (bad), “The Nanny Diaries” (better than the book), and “Night at the Museum” (better than I expected). And of course I got a lot of knitting time in.
Besides my two Clapotis (only one being active since I still haven’t found the last ball of Tahki New Tweed), I also have been working on my Classic Elite Venue raglan. That is a lot of yarn to use up, and a raglan is easy movie knitting.
This sweater has also accompanied me to the movies twice this week. First I went to see “Be Kind, Rewind” which I really liked. It wasn’t a traditional Jack Black comedy, but I like Mos Def as an actor, and it was funny in parts. Then today I went to see “The Other Boleyn Girl”. It was well done, but not too happy an ending, as you might have guessed. And I just don’t get the obsession with Scarlett Johansson. I guess that’s because I’m female, but I just don’t get it. Then again, Brad Pitt doesn’t do much for me either.
I’ve still got at least 700 yards of Venue, and one or two movies on my list to see next week, so I hope to get back into Finished Objects land soon!
