The Terrible Case of Benjamin Button
I was never a big movie person. Since getting married I have become a movie watcher. (It might also have something to do with working 12 hour shifts and having energy for nothing else by the end of the day). We rented Benjamin Button last night. I am reminded why I never used to like movies. We were unimpressed. Many of the movies I have watched recently that are blockbuster hits are basically centered around sex. As was this one. But this was three hours long ... ugh ... Also, I used to think Brad Pitt was possibly the most attractive man alive. I am a little dissapointed. He really isn't even a very good actor. He just plays a silent, brewding character in all his movies. And I don't think it was seeing him as a hidious old-man-baby that ruined it for me.
When I get the conference issues of the Ensign, the first thing I do is flip through to see if I know anyone in the pictures. It has never happened. Sometimes Iwould see people I recognised from classes at BYU. Today, on page 84, there was a picture of Eric Litster. Not having talked to him in years I won't post the picture, but I know there are others who may be amused by this.
