I've been away from the computer pretty much since Saturday morning. Saturday, Corb and I stayed over Josie's, and I did have computer opportunities at, like, two in the morning, but her computer's keyboard hates me, and I always end up having to spot checking everything I type. It's like a bad postal employee--it tends to lose a few letters, every so often.
Christmas morning we all exchanged Christmas presents, except for Corb, who had to go to work. I then went to Josie's parents, and they truly greeted me really warmly. Their generosity and kindness was everything I could have asked for.
At five, the big extended family gathered around for a Christmas dinner--Corb and me, the kids, Josie and Andrew, and her friend Michael.
Later that night, Corb and I went to see The Producers . I know that it's not really in huge distribution--a lot of movie theaters are passing it over in favor of the epics, and so it will probably not get the box office attention of other movies out there, but I really liked it. Corb and I give it two thumbs up!
I had been worried about the fact that fact that Mel Brooks hasn't been doing much to promote this--so it was nice, at the end of the film, to see him sing the last few lines (it happens right after the credits). Everyone else in the audience had left by that point, but I saw it, and appreciated it.
His last two words were "It's over," and that sort of gave me chills. I've always liked Mel, because I cherish irreverancy.
