I woke up this morning to the power flickering on and off. Funny how you forget to appreciate the small things until they're no longer there.

Fortunately, we (somehow) have an electrician on call, and the power company reconnected our power lines. Which is how I can sit here blogging at the moment.

I just watched the film "Milk", which won numerous academy awards last year. Almost all of my readers have probably already seen this film, but my movie-going free time has been greatly reduced since having children. It's not that I never have time to see movies, but often I see them six months or a year after they are released. It's just the way it is right now.

So much that I agree with has already been said in various places on the interwebs.

I just find the struggle for respect and human rights inspiring. It takes a lot of guts to put yourself out there, to speak your truth. It takes courage to be yourself. It was an inspiring film, one that I won't soon forget.

That's funny, I just watched Milk for the first time last week, for the same reason as you: I just wait for grown-up movies to come out on DVD.

I thought it was fantastic!

chanson-There are some movies we see in the theater, like The Watchmen, which was good. But we aren't able to see as many as we would like - thankfully dvd's are an option.
