Recent delights:

     Getting to see a 'blue moon' on New Year's Eve.

     The big bag of caramel & cheese popcorn I picked up to enjoy over the long weekend. (Though yes, I started munching at work because I couldn't keep my hands off of it!)

     The Il Divo cd/dvd I got from my parents for Christmas. It has been too fun playing it loudly in the car--I'm in love with 'Adagio.'

     And today: my second time out to see Avatar. This time on the huge 6-floors-high IMAX screen in 3d. When I got there for the 12:30 showing, they were sold out until 10 pm, so I'm very grateful I bought my tickets online in advance! (Seeing as it was only UP to -9 F/-23 C by 11 am, us Minnesotans don't got anything else to do! ;) I'm also grateful my car started, poor thing wasn't happy at all. Wow, did I have a blast! The very involved people next to me flinching at some of the 3d and making comments only made it more fun. I'm thinking I'll have to get out for a third time late in the month, as my comparatively tiny tv screen wouldn't do such gorgeousness justice at all. Just wow...

Caramel & cheese popcorn sounds interesting. :)

* sigh * Would you believe I still haven't seen Avatar? I got so busy over winter break that it just did not work out.

I love it! I used to buy the three-way mix (caramel, cheese, and plain) but they've started putting too much plain in to save money.

Well, you did try! I feel bad for all the folks who braved the cold yesterday just to find it was sold out--and no other option as the IMAX only has one screen. The way it's raking it in at the box office means it might be around a bit yet. =)

Glad you got to see the blue moon, It was cloudy and overcast here so
I was not able to see it.
With all your raving about Avatar; I want to go and see it.

I am so glad you are enjoying the IlDivo CD. You will need to let me
know about the dvd.
Hope your work week goes smoothly.

That's a pity. Of course, the clear nights are why it's getting so cold around here!

I haven't watched the dvd yet as the concert is two hours long and I already spent enough time watching movies this weekend. Probably next weekend.

Thanks! It will certainly be busy, as I have year-end reports to churn out.
