My husband and I (finally) went to see Sweeney Todd last night. I thought it was a great great movie. I absolutely loved it. My husband could have done with less blood, he said. Well, I suppose it wasn’t all necessary. It was very realistic. And yes, another part was a bit graphic as well. But it’s hard to tell if everything would have had the same effect if they toned it down a bit. The music was WONDERFUL. Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter were absolutely perfect in their roles. Tim Burton has outdone himself.
I went to a Sharks game Friday night, we lost after a shoot-out in OT. Sheesh. Looks like my good luck has gone away. I used to be lucky–Every game that I went to, we would win. My friend Cheryl gave me my birthday present when we went to the game, since we won’t see each other until after my birthday (unless I want to get my Graham Mink autographed card…). It was a photo of Riley Armstrong she caught during the team autograph event. LOL he’s such a goof-ball.
I’m making great progress on the novel. I may set it a little later than I had first intentioned (which is to say, go back to the ORIGINAL time setting…). I’m losing one character, and making another a little different. It’s very exciting, seeing all these changes and watching my story grow stronger and stronger.
