Mr Mousebender: And I thought to myself, "A little fermented curd will do the trick," so, I curtailed my Walpoling activities, sallied forth, and infiltrated your place of purveyance to negotiate the vending of some cheesy comestibles.
Henry Wenslydale: Come again?
Mr Mousebender: I want to buy some cheese!

Saw your post from last month re the impending Waldenbooks closings when I was researching this article Huffington Post and enjoyed reading through some of your blog. Thought you'd like to know about the campaign that some employees have helped organize to ensure unsold books don't get trashed when the liquidation sales are over.

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
This was a NetFlix rental and going into it I knew to maintain low expectations - and I'm glad I did! It's not really bad - okay, some of the dialogue will make you chuckle - just forgetable. Special effects kinda cool. Watching the Eiffel Tower go down was wild. As a party rental, it's fun. (We had some friends over for pizza that night, which helped!) Otherwise, not really deep or memorable.
Rating - C
I will be seeing Avatar this afternoon, so look for a review of the James Cameron film REALLY soon!
