I love watching Jackie Chan, he is amazing...so is Jet Li. I think I'll take Neil to work with me today, I have the office to myself.

The last movie I watched: The Horror of Dracula starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing.

For Christmas last year DH was going to give me tickets to see Neil in July. This would have been my 10th concert since the famous "Hot August Night" tour in 1972 - the first concert my parents let me go see with just a friend! I turned it down because I had seen him so many times and the tickets were very expensive. We saw another concert and had dinner out for less money and had a really good time.

(The real reason is I just wouldn't feel comfortable seeing my first love with my greatest love sitting beside me )

I haven't seen Lawrence of Arabia in years. I was too young to appreciate the film. Hope it airs on cable. What I remember the most (besides looking at Omar ) was the cinamatography & spectacular soundtrack/theme.

It is hard to swoon under those conditions.

The Miracle Worker. Hadn't seen it in years. Wish there had been a follow-up film about her life. Did some research & saw all the huge accomplishments she made over her lifetime.

Have fun with Neil at work. I am listening to his four CD boxed set - I have the "early years" one on now. "Shilo, when I was young...."

I love Jet Li too. When we saw the Expendables last month I wondered where I has seen him before. A trailer with The Forbidden Kingdom gave me the answer. It was another "Lions Gate Film" (back when they were good and located here in Vancouver) called "War".

I forgot that I watched "27 Dresses" on TV on the weekend. I had seen it before and even the first time it was predictable, but it was a good "I am not feeling well and just need something that keeps me curled up in my recliner with some hot tea" movie!

I felt the same way. I actually like the series that had Jeremy Bret as Sherlock Holmes. It was on TV-but i don't remember which network. They were also rebroadcasting them on PBS for awhile They went right along with the stories that I have read a few times each. really good. They may have those out on video. If they do it is worth finding them. Each show was 1/2 hour I think. Maybe one hour??

Sorry Addie. I wasn't clear. I watched the first of the most recent SH movies starring Robert Downey Jr. The sequel is out now.

I don't find it difficult at all, Shrek has heard all the pithy comments I make about those I find sexy. It makes him laugh like crazy.
