As you may have noticed, I'm into kiddie lit these days. I'm still waiting for the Harry Potter book from the library, but in the meantime I've got caught up on the films. Then I picked up Charlotte's Web at the video store. I thought I could avoid it, but I welled up at the end.
Yesterday, I grabbed Pan's Labyrinth. Have you seen this? This is not for kids. It's about a kid, but I wouldn't recommend planting your kids in front of it. Talk about violent! And strange, and subtitled and a little bit heartbreaking. I wonder how many kids watched that, the parents thinking it was a kid movie. Aside from all this disclaimer business, it was a riveting film.
Spouse is off today. We are going to be stuck at the triplex as they (finally) install the new exterior doors. This has been scheduled and postponed for weeks. Of course it's supposed to be rainy all day. We are not installing the doors ourselves, but since all the tenants are at work, we have to be present to supervise and prevent any theft. Yippee. (sarcasm, please note.)
