Miscellaneous morsels

Last night we went to see Fireproof. We're not opening night kind of people generally, in fact, we avoid it on purpose. But this time, we wanted to show our support for a positive movie, so off we went. And though M was constantly amazed at the sold out theaters of the other two showings at our cinema and the way full theater we were in, we did manage to watch the movie and enjoyed it quite a bit. I recommend it for everyone, actually. We all (most of us, anyway) comment often on the negative exports from Hollywood, so I feel like when a positive offering shows up, it's time to put our money where our mouths are and show support. How else will they know what we'd like to see more of?! I identified with several parts of the story personally, but even if you don't find it reminiscent of your story, it's encouraging to see a portrayal of a fight *for* a marriage committment, not just the fights that just end in more fights. And it was pretty funny... M was surprised that the audience really laughed heartily so many times. There is a little action, there's a little drama, alot of humor, and some romance too. I say it's a very encouraging way to spend 2 hours.

On a totally different note, tonight I met my friend Melanie for dinner at a steakhouse. I had my first ever prime rib. I expected it to be awesome. It was ok, not bad, but not any better than a regular old sirloin, in my opinion. Weird how that can be disappointing in a way. But now I know.

  2. This afternoon the theatre was about 1/2 full, but I think they had 4-5 theatres showing the film at the same time. There was a lot of laughing, crying and clapping during the movie.

    Jason just told me that at the end when Caleb and Catherine kiss, the actress is actually Kirk Cameron's wife Chelsea Noble because Kirk refuses to kiss women other than his wife on camera.
