When I first moved here, I picked the DVD up at Target for about 10 bucks. Tonight, I finally got around to watching it and I was vividly reminded of Mel Brooks' unique style and ability. Of course, seeing John Candy and Rick Moranis was a blast from the past and I always enjoy a good spoof, especially if it's of a cult film like Star Wars. All in all, I think this was 10 bucks well spent and I'll have to try to remember to screen it the next time a bunch of my friends and I are sitting around with nothing to do.
The Voyage has come to and end
...but The Silver Chair has only just begun. I'm beginning the 6th book in the Chronicles of Narnia series and I expect I'll be done with the series in about two weeks. I've said too many times how much I'm enjoying the stories, but this one was particularly well written. The last few chapters were unique in many ways and C.S. Lewis' creativity and storytelling ability really stood out to me down the stretch.
Laptop on hold
I finally sat down and worked out a dollar-by-dollar budget for myself and, long story short, "laptop" ain't anywhere to be found. I might re-evaluate here in a month or so, but the laptop is on hold indefinitely. I'm really bummed because it's something I could really use and I was looking forward to having the freedom to write almost anywhere (on a computer), but facts are facts and the fact is there ain't room for a laptop right now. Patience is a virtue.
