* ENTERTAINMENT NEWS *
Wow - I didn't see any new movies or purchase any new CD's! I do have an ITunes gift card burning a hole in my pocket, so new music is in my very near future. Next movie on my list is The Wolfman next month. Nixon/Frost arrived from NetFlix, so will watch that by Saturday.
Otherwise, the show of choice in our house is American Idol. My husband started watching several years ago because he enjoyed the train wreck of really bad auditions. Well, he got hooked, so now he watches every year. I catch some of it. I don't like watching the idiots, but some of the stories are so moving. And is it just me, or is Simon just a little less mean this year? Anyone else an Idol addict?
* VIDEO OF THE DAY *
For my newer watchers who've never seen Steve's Bad Day - this is my husband's short computer animation movie. And yes, I am two of the voices! Enjoy - it's funny! (And for those who wonder - it took him about eight months to do this piece.)
