Last night we saw The Story of Marie and Julien. My husband was invited out afterwards for drinks. I get to be the tag-along spouse. We go... my stomach was acting up earlier but I like the fellows that are going. Though I don't particpate much in the 2 hour conversation that goes with the drinks it's nice to get out. We went to St. James Tavern which I've not been to before. I mainly people watch. We have a delightful conversation about the blackmail plot in the movie. The attitude about the blackmailing seems very French but is really just unimportant in the scheme of things.

"I'm going to blackmail you."

Later in the movie...

"You broke the rules. Now you need to pay 10 times what I originally asked."
"What? Ten times the amount? That's impossible. I can give you twice the amount!"
"I said ten times."
"You're mad."
"Yes, I am."
"Okay, I'll give you the money."

We've gotten some pictures of ~CMS~ and he's cute. He's got a head full of blonde hair just like his mom and most of her family. He's also got a blonde grandfather and uncle on this side of the family. From certain angles, his nose looks like a little snout because the nostrils seem so prominent. Of course, in every picture he's been asleep so I have no idea what color his eyes are. I realized today that his middle name is the same as one of his uncles.

When my husband's brother and his wife first started dating and it looked like it would be serious, I thought she and I would be really close. I'm not close to my brother's wife at all. Like my brother, she's 10 years older than I am. Her mind goes in a million different directions and her kids (plus grandkids) drive her to distraction but she never purposefully tries to hurt anyone and she cares about my brother. That makes her okay in my book even if she and I don't get together or spend time with each other. My husband's brother's wife is closer to me in age. She's younger than me by about 6 years. We both read books and watch a lot of movies. We know our political views are somewhat alike and can talk about nearly anything with one another. Perhaps it's because she's the oldest but I think it has a lot to do with her parents divorce, she is very close to her brother and sister. There is a bond amongst them that doesn't let many other people in. She prefers their company to that of many other people.

I find that I don't have many close female friends. I haven't been able to figure out why that is but I suspect that it's due to the maintenance that they need. I don't mean of the ego but just the amount of time it takes to keep in touch. You know, the phone calls, the visits, etc.
