Zero knitting progress

But in other great news my honey is back home.
He suffered through Ranger school and now he's home so I can feed him non-stop until he's all fattened up again. I've missed cooking! Nevertheless, since he's been home we've ate a disgusting amount of food and we've ate out quite a bit. Last nights blue-cream cheese burgers were the first "meal" I've made for him. They were great- got the recipe out of Everyday w/ Rachel Ray Magazine.
Well, taking a Q from Kaity. I think I'm going to step this blog up a bit too. I hate posting so sporadically so I'm not going to anymore but the compromise is that I will probably be a lot more personal and not just knitting on this site now. I hope my knitting peeps don't run away...I know how it is when u subscribe to a zillion blogs- you want knitting meat and potatoes. Well now when you turn here you might get ACTUAL meat and potatoes so beware:-)
Well, on the movie tip since Matty has been home we've seen:

41. Bourne Ultimatum- this was my 2nd time seeing this in the theater. It was good. Action packed with plenty of butt-kicking the way I like it. Is there something wrong when you really feel like you could watch people fight "hand to hand combat" all day long? I LOVE it. Nevertheless, it seemed that everyone was apes over this movie and while it was good I wasn't apes over it.
42. 3:10 to Yuma- I've never considered myself to be a big western movie watcher but I liked this little flick. It could be Christian Bale and Russel Crowe that convinced me but I really think that I like the whole I'm a cowboy and outlaw attitude. That's probably what does it for me. this was a thumbs up surprisingly.
43. The Kingdom- Matty and I attended a sneak of this movie and I thought it was AWESOME. I recommend this movie- I'm talking pick of the week status. Jamie Foxx was really good in it too. The movie was realistic and though most of the action happens at the end it didn't drag and furthermore the movie strongly resonates and the ending really makes you think.44. Rush Hour 3- What a sorry bunch of crap of a movie this was. Dude, talk about selling out...most of the movie I was asking Chris Tucker if he was serious. Aside from being just straight- up hokey AND corny I'd say dang near half of the comedy was a freaking minstrel show. I'm not even racially oversensitive but I definitely was cringing through a lot of the "comedy" especially since I was there with my in laws. I felt like I needed to clarify or explain or something.

I went to see 3:10 to Yuma and was pleasantly surprised. I"m not normally one who likes westerns...I usually think they're for old folks...but I really liked the movie. especially the end.

I avoided Rush Hour 3 because I'd heard that it was a load of do-do. You just confirmed it.

oh no!!! i'm mad about rush hour turning out to be bad. i saw the previews and was hoping that'd be worth watching. glad to hear all is well and that your hubby's back home!

Yeah, Rush Hour 3 was garbage. Probably the worst of this year's "third" movies. Kingdom does look interesting - might have to check that one out. Haven't been to the theater in a while - need to get the Rush Hour taste out of my mouth.
