I especially like the Old Spice homage.

This was really interesting.

I really enjoyed this film. It's very well written and has some of my favorite character actors (James Cromwell, Scott Glenn, John Malkovich.) Diane Lane really should be nominated for a Oscar. Loved how the horses were filmed. So much power and grace. Anyway, I just wanted to rec the film.

So...kitten issues. There is a Siamese kitten hanging about for the past week. Probably about 4 to 5 months old. He/She is small enough that the male cats Buddy and Brindle just sniff its nose like, "Really? Aren't you a little young to be all alone?" It's very skittish. I've been putting out canned food, which it woofs down. Wed night, Abby was at the screen door and the kitten was rubbing up and down in front of her with lots of kitten squeaks. Tonight, I left the door open and kitten came in (and out and in and out). It climbed up on the couch where Buddy was and just kept butting its head against his tummy; Buddy left because it was just too needy. Then the kitten kept approaching Abby. She kept growling at it but let it get within a few inches. When it got closer than that, she left. Then, the big mistake. The kitten walked on her pillow. She jumped off the couch and went towards the door. The kitten followed and she jumped on it and there was much screaming. When I arrived the kitten was on it's back, showing it's tummy in complete submission. Abby stopped and the kitten fled into the night. :::sigh:::

I called for Buddy to come back in a few hours later and I could hear the kitten squeaking in the bushes. It's so lonely and wants to be adpoted by a kitty family. I'm hoping I can try again tomorrow and perhaps trap it in the house. It would be a fourth cat, but the three current ones are only needy when they are in the mood. The tough part is getting the my furry companions to accept it, and that is 2/3s done. It's too bad Abby is territorial and doesn't give a flying crap how young the new one is. One the other hand...she was defending her home which means we are her home. She is really coming along. :)

Speaking of which, we now let her out every day during the day. When Buddy goes out, she comes running, "wait for me! Wait for me!" and usually bounces out the door ahead of him. But she wants to come back in within a 1-3 hours. She comes running if we call (particularly Mom--she's bonding very well with Mom.) We still can't pick her up, she she come regularly to us to be petted and adored.

Lastly, just getting caught up on tv. Am watching NCIS and just saw Tony dressed as Travolta. My, my, my but those white pants sure showed off his package.

Okay, there are three things I wanted to mention.

The first is that Buddy, the black cat has acquired two servants. He comes in and bosses us about. It's actually pretty funny. I feel by winter he'll be our cat but don't tell him that.

The second is that we saw Julie and Julia tonight. I really enjoyed it. It is very well acted, quite interesting and is pretty much exactly what I expected. I enjoyed the Julia parts more than the Julie parts, but those were okay, too. I recommend it unless you have to have special effects or car chases in your films.

Third, last week I wrote an annoyed letter to my congressman, David Drier, a republican. He apparently called up while we were at the movies. That's...unsettling. I wrote about health care bill because I felt very frustrated that he would, of course, be anti-bill. He can't really be interested in a pro-health care bill viewpoint so what was he after? He was having a telephone town hall meeting, whatever that is. Was I gonna be the person all the raving lunatics would be shouting down? Oh well, I'm glad I missed it.

Oh, also I want to say I am enjoying Being Human and find Defying Gravity ridiculous but I'm still watching because I want to know what Beta is.

There's a plotline on Criminal Minds that reminds me of a quote I can't quite remember from this 1977 film. I thought, "I need a copy of this film on DVD!" so I went to Amazon and found it's discontinued and used copies are going for between $99 and $250! Luckily, I see the film will be broadcast on Nov 25 on Sundance. I think it's fair to say someone will be burning a disc of this. Sheesh!

Anyway, in the film, Sigmund Freud helps Sherlock Holmes with his obsession about Prof. Moriarty. It turns out there is an event in Holmes' early years that explain why he has become such a diligent investigator. When asked why he's a detective, he says something like, to seek out the guilty and fight injustice. Does anyone remember what that quote was? I've already check the IMDB but nada.

So, in a few hours, we will find out what memories Dr. Reid has suppressed from his childhood. I must say I haven't been this excited/impatient to see a tv show in years. I am always excited to see a Michael Shanks ep of Stargate but the writing was poor so I never got so impatient to see what would be reveled in the show.

This was a very enjoyable film. I liked the writing, the acting...everything. It was very entertaining. I think it's especially fun for those of us that toy with writing fiction.

There was one problem though. There was a character in the film who was a baker and we see fresh baked cookies, cupcakes, lemon squares...etc.... So, on the way home tonight, we had to stop at the market and buy some cookie dough. I haven't baked cookies in years and I have to admit they were wonderful, all warm and gooey.

Go see the film but be prepared to crave baked goods afterwards.
