It's been six days since my last post and I'm having serious blogger withdrawal. What can I say, I didn't open my own computer since last Tuesday. Much was going on over the Thanksgiving weekend, a tremendous amount of cooking (Wednesday was lasagna, Thursday was turkey, ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, onion tartlets, green beans and the infamous Sonny's baked beans and last night was pulled pork, macaroni and cheese, home made cole slaw and corn bread...) interspersed with various pizzas, White Castle and all other such generally unhealthy but tasty stuff.

We also managed to finally see Casino Royale which is the longest Bond film known to man. Okay, Kudos to Daniel Craig. He was good-- rugged, actually muscular so it is believeable that he could do some of these stunts and stuff, but how long do you need to be playing poker for? The poker game went on for like four days. Why did they need to start out with ten players? Couldn't they have had five, double the buy in and let the game last half as long? And, how long would it take you to sail from the Bahamas to Venice? And, Eva Green. Bond Girl goes boring. Vesper Lynd was nothing but unlikeable.

I will also give kudos to the scenery-- they went to Lake Como, twice (and once again proved that yes, Venice and Lake Como are within driving distance of each other) ;) Though something's telling me Bond didn't make the trip in a BMW wagon.
