Curious ...

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.

OMG!!! We too thought that Benjamin Button was a horrible movie, and that comes from two people that LOVE movies and somewhat fans of Brad. I have been asking people if they have seen it and if not, then I warn them not to. It was a BIG WASTE of TIME!!! And just a little creepy if you ask me. But I just wanted to tell ya that we totally agree with you on that!!!

1. A story about Conference Issue: (I always have a story--are you sick of them yet?) Dave and I were living in the Carribean and I hadn't been homesick for a LONG time, but we received the conference issue and as I was flipping through, there was my stake pres and his wife smiling up at me! It was such a sweet moment and I got all teary (I'm kind of a sap that way).

2. I agree about the movie issue. There are some good ones out there, but VERY FEW.

3. I went to the library again--apparently on the same day you did--but early in the morning! Silly. (and to return the book I checked out the previous day. I wasn't that excited to read it and after I talked to you I thought, "What's the point?")

You totally should have posted the picture! That's a picture of my now fiance and her parents. It doesn't hurt if you know one of the conference photographers from freshman year at BYU.

Thanks Katie!

ps. I love the Boston pictures... I was there selling alarms for APX and loved walking the north end with my now fiance, Audrey.

pss. I'm in Boise now1
