Definitely got into my element last night. Fired up the grill for ribs and peppers, added some potato salad, and fed us all like kings.

Watched a couple films lately:
- if you have a chance to see Lars von Trier's Antichrist, don't. Skip it. Seriously, that guy owes me an hour and a half of my life back. I like Willem Dafoe, but this was just not good. Obviously done as art, not cinema...and failed as art. Felt like something a 15-16 year-old would write, trying to be shocking and controversial (which, from everything I've read about von Trier, sounds about right).
- On the other hand, if you wanna grab a copy of The Lovely Bones, I recommend it. I enjoyed this a lot more than I expected. Oddly surreal in places, but not in a way that leaves you confused, just enough to really appreciate the visuals. Story was not only good, it was satisfying, if only for times that characters did the smart thing I thought they should instead of the idiot Hollywood thing I'm used to seeing. A sweet film that made numerauko cry at the end. Good stuff.

I loved The Lovely Bones. I also cried like a baby at the end. I have a copy of the book and it's on my list to read this year. I skimmed through the beginning. It's on my list to read this year.

The Lovely Bones is a fantastic movie. I read many bad reviews after reading watching it and had to wonder if the reviewer and I saw the same move. I know some people who loved the book were disappointed, but really, film and books are vastly different things and should be taken on their own and not as carbon copies of each other.

Stanley T. is great in it (and in Easy A), a wonderful performance.

Mmmm, meat!

I do, from time to time. I tend to stick to rum-and-coke or bourbon, but if I'm grilling, I like to have a beer around.
