Bregna: It was so odd to see a relaxed blonde Charlize Theron on stage tonight (and clips of Frances McDormand from North Country) at tonight's BAFTAs, after seeing both in other incarnations in the decent-but-not-better Aeon Flux this afternoon. In another miracle of last minute coordination, I had the pleasure of oursin's company for today's movie-going expedition. The movie was very solidly a creature of its genre, and fairly satisfying for that. Back at the BAFTAs, meanwhile, I was delighted to see the Wallace and Gromit movie win best British Film!
Corner Store: C. and I have been a sad pair lately. He's down with a cold and I'm still limping slightly (but I'm so much better than I was a few days ago!) As a consequence, there has been no grocery shopping in our recent past. We had takeaway food from Rotisserie Jules for the first time in a long, long while (still tasty), and I popped a bag of the only kind of popcorn I could find at Waitrose. I'll need a different grocery store to buy "normal" popcorn. Our local corner store has provided our lunches. Tomorrow, however, a grocery store expedition awaits.
Also, my first experience with pomegranate juice was not a promising one, even for a juice aficionado such as myself: Pomegreat tasted like vitamin-fortified Kool-Aid. This might explain why it's popular among some crowds, or it might explain why I should try a different brand of juice.
