Lola1

Ahem. Well.

It's Saturday and I've been awake since 8am. I've been catching up on my Corgi mail - though I get the digest version of the email, a lot of emails get sent and I only look at it a few times a week. That's why I go no-mail from time to time with them.

For some reason, the emails really got to me. A few people lost their dogs this week or gave updates on their dogs. The 40th dog helped this year by CorgiAid is a senior fellow of 21 years whose family could not afford to take him out of the shelter. He was in such poor condition, it's really a miracle (and probably great genes) that has helped him last this long. Someone shared a funny from the New Yorker about Queen Elizabeth's plans on Charles' wedding day. I got a giggle out of it. Then I had tears rolling down my cheeks from a Cancer Survivor Story.

I decided to take a break from the Corgi stuff and read about the California father that was convicted of killing nine children. Here is the Yahoo news story. I normally wouldn't say this, but the man should be tortured before being put to death for his actions.

Well, on to lighter, more pedestrian things...

On Wednesday we saw Batman Begins followed by Mr. and Mrs. Smith. I really enjoyed Batman Begins. Other than Christian Bale and Katie Holmes I didn't really pay attention to who else was in it beforehand. So when I saw Rutger Hauer, Morgan Freeman and Gary Oldman I was happy. The previews made it seem like Morgan Freeman had a small role. He and Michael Caine were great (as always) and I really liked Gary Oldman's performance. I wasn't expecting Mr. and Mrs. Smith to be very good because of all the publicity surrounding the rumored romance between the leads. When there is more talk about the actors then the movie, I kind of wonder. I did get quite a few laughs and enjoyed myself though I guess I was hoping for less of the "I'm a dumb guy in love and the woman is so smart" kind of comedy as the movie went on. Vince Vaughn was great. Now I want to see the Alfred Hitchcock version.
