During the days of the old Boston Gardens (NBA and NHL homes) the women started to use the mens bathrooms because there simply were not enough bathrooms for women. And we all know women take a lot longer than men. So when they built the new Gardens, there are now more than twice the number of women's restrooms than mens. Those long lines are a thing of the past.

Last night we watched "The Expendables 2." My stepdaughter was right - it was better than the first one. Lots of explosions, fights, and muscles, and it was funny as all get-out! Most of the humor would be totally lost on anyone who hadn't seen many of the stars' previous action movies ("Rambo," "Lone Wolf McQuade," "Terminator," "Total Recall," and "Die Hard" to name a few). Many references to them. Those guys are all as old as dirt (and they played up to that in the movie), and they were all great. We loved it.

I watched The Last Temptation of Christ this morning. Long movie, but it held my attention. A semi-oldie I had never seen before.

El Dorado...always up for a John Wayne movie, Shrek is always surprised when I can say the lines before the actor does.

There's more than two dish providers?

I'm always amazed about how much the cable company will knock off my monthly bill when I tell them I'm going to dish... One of these days they might call my bluff.

Went to see "Life of Pi" last night. What a wonderful movie. The cinematography is breathtaking (I guarantee you've never seen water filmed so many different ways).

It wasn't until after I got home that I did some reading and found that many of the animal scenes were done using computer graphics. That's not surprising I guess, given that it would be dangerous to film a tiger and a young boy together in a small boat. However, what's surprising is that the CGI scenes are so seamless you can't tell what's real and what's computer generated. And the effects don't detract at all from the story - which is the most important thing.
