And a good time was had by all

Had our good friends mumpish and his wife over for dinner and games last night. Definitely a good end to a rather rough week - seems like it was for everybody I know. I spent three days fixing Brunswick stew, but that's just the way of the stew: it's time intensive, but well worth it. I always make a lot, then freeze it. Anyway, it was good to see them, and we had a lot of fun playing Apples to Apples, Kill Doctor Lucky, and the most excellent Give Me the Brain! I personally liked Apples to Apples very much, too . . . just the BS it generates is hilarious, but out of the three, all were fun, so it's hard to pick a favorite.

Found out that T. likes Tolkien! Neat - didn't know that about her. :) Will have to try to get a group together to see the premiere of Fellowship, preferably at Phipps. I will be there. Harry Potter, well . . . I'm interested in seeing it, don't get me wrong, but I'm not really interested in seeing it with a theater full of kids. Maybe a midnight showing or something.

Just got back from seeing Monsters, Inc.. Cute, sweet, and a theater loaded with children. Fortunately, most of them were very well-behaved. It's not that I dislike children, I simply dislike ill-behaved people, regardless of their age, and bad parents tend to create unruly offspring.

The word that they aired the Episode II trailer before the movie was true . . . but I was underwhelmed. Not by the contents, exactly - it's just that the trailer was very short, gave us little to work with, and was designed in a way that revealed nothing, so it left me very unsatisfied. By comparison, I saw and learned tons more at the special presentation at DragonCon.
