A bit of this and that:
  • Saw "Inkheart" today. Not bad. My mom and sister hated it. I wouldn't necessarily watch it again, but I wouldn't say it was horrible. We like Brendan Frasier around here, so if you set your expectations to "Brendan Frasier" level, you'll not be disappointed.
  • Saw "Knowing" today. Not bad. I like Nicolas Cage. This is a typical movie for him too. Could have been something that M.Night Shyamalon wrote (but it wasnt).
  • Finished reading "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4)" today. Not bad. The movie did a good job of leaving out the Winky/Dobby House-Elf story line that didn't contribute much to the action nor was it wrapped up in the book.
  • Finished reading "The Host: A Novel" the other day. Not bad. The jacket says that the book explores what it means to be human. Seems too lofty a goal for what I saw in it. Nice sci-fi story. I would say it was like Stephanie Meyers watched Stargate SG-1 and asked herself what it would be like if the Goa'uld parasite wasn't inherently evil and did manage to invade Earth, then wrote this.
  • Finished reading " The X and Y of Buy: Sell More and Market Better by Knowing How the Sexes Shop (NelsonFree)" recently. Some fascinating trivia, but poor on the application thereof.
