VUBOQ went to the movies
(and a $25 all you can drink 5-8PM happy hour last night, but that's another story).
Carolyn, Kristen, and I met at 11:30 this morning in Scarylandia (aka Virginia) for a day at the movies. First, we watched Judi Dench in Notes on a Scandal. Twenty minutes after that movie, we saw Helen Mirren in The Queen. I thought Notes was a better, more interesting, more complex film. And, Judi Dench's performance was amazing. Helen Mirren's performance in The Queen was the only interesting thing about that movie. If you haven't seen either, I would recommend seeing Notes first. I would very much like to see Judi Dench win the Oscar, but -more than likely- Helen Mirren will carry the day. dang.
After the movies, Kristen went to pick up her husband, John, and we had sushi. Well, they had sushi. I had vegetable tempura. I am feeling all fat and bloated. I think I will spend the rest of the evening reclining on my sofa. Perhaps I will knit.
