Paul and I went to the movies this afternoon. I had wanted to see Stardust after seeing a trailer for it earlier this year. It opened in very few theatres here, sadly not at the one I usually attend, so fearing a short stay I decided to see it today. I hadn't thought it would appeal to Paul but he seemed keen.
Stephen won't be happy as he wanted to go with me but he's a big boy and perfectly capable of going alone. If he does happen to find the time to see it before it closes and wants company, he can always buy my ticket and I'll watch it again.
It was fun. It was enjoyable. It was easy to watch, made us laugh out loud and we left with grins on our faces. It did what a movie was suppose to do, it entertained us.

Speaking of movies......Stephen is involved in a short film project with the improv group at The Staircase Theatre and last Sunday needing some extra extras, he cast his parents. See how well trained I am. I found my mark and stayed there. This is probably the only time I'll let him boss me around.

It was interesting watching him work. He sets the lights, sorts out the blocking, gives the directions and films. He's rather good at it that boy of mine.

Congratulations on the screen credit (he will give you one, won't he? At least a "thanks, mum")

Neil Gaiman is a genius and I've been dying to see this film. It's not been released here yet, but I will definitely be going to see it. Glad you enjoyed it!

Yes I too have been wondering about that movie, it looked really good, and I quite like Claire Danes.
