And everyone was running all around the town.
Hard to believe that we are a week away from one holiday and two weeks from the last day of the year.
Fig is looking at me with that puzzle look that makes me believe she is an alien in a cat suit. She sometimes is the strangest cat.
The NFL is heading into the last two weeks of the season with what I call the numbers can make you feel better section of our program. The Wildcard race/fight is off and running. Some teams are out in the cold but there are some that are just peeking in and IF (insert a whole bunch of win/loss stuff ) then maybe their team might make it in. Right now the Giants have their fate in their hands. The Jets have to have a bunch of stuff to happen to even make it in. The Bears are in the same boat as the Jets.
I enjoyed the Hobbit a lot. Yes, they really played really fast and loose with the book. They added stuff from passing comments and other books. And there was a lot more fighting. Technically they got 6 chapters into the Hobbit. It was nice seeing characters again and Martin Freeman was wonderful as the younger Bilbo Baggins. I liked the Dwarves and the visuals. The extra frames may have made it sharper but I am not sure if it is better. My eyes don’t handle 3-D well. After a while my eyeballs compensate for the 3-D and the effect goes away and it flattens out. It is definitely worth seeing on the Big Screen.
This week is getting ready for the next two weeks and the rest of 2013.
I am grateful for films that feel like visiting old friends and picking up where you left off.
