Whee!

Day old chocolate cake = just about as good as fresh chocolate cake. Of course, I will also eat stale chocolate cake, as long as the icing hasn't gone too crispy. :)

So yes, my birthday yesterday was quite nice, and culminated with buying the collector's edition of "Serenity" and the regular version of "House of Flying Daggers." Now, when it comes to the latter, I really like "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and "Hero" better, but all of them have such amazing cinematography and stunts that I wasn't gonna say no to completing the not-really-a-trilogy. :)

I think we're gonna be watching a whole lot more movies in the near future, since Lost is on a brief hiatus (not back on until April... *sob*). But I never mind watching more movies.

Speaking of, I just remembered that I wanted to post about this last week. I finally got to see "Marie Antoinette," which I had heard all sorts of bad things about (like it was horrible, not worth watching, etc.). Honestly? I liked it. I'm sure some people were deeply offended by the use of the 80s music throughout the movie, but that just made me happy... keeping in mind that I also LOVE Moulin Rouge. :) (And yet it bugged me that they were using modern music in "A Knight's Tale," though I think that is more in that they had characters reacting to said music.)

So yeah, not a bad movie. Kinda cute. Kinda funny. Loved the shoes, even if I would never wear most of them. :)

I saw Marie Antoinette in the movies under protest and I was the one who ended up really enjoying the movie. I think you're correct, people didn't like the use of modern music with this period movie.

As for you question you posted last night in my blog about spring and hoodies - I woke up to snow and ice this morning. I'm thinking that another paradigm has shifted for me. Apparently, Summer is the time for hoodies. ;)
