First time in longer than I can recall. Thundering, too.

Last night I watched The Wild And Wonderful Whites of West Virginia. As [ profile] maddiec24 said, "That's a whole lot of crazy in one spot." After the movie ended I watched all of the special features, which added another hour and twenty minutes of watching a family that reminds me of the worst of my own kin. Then again, we Davises do hail from West Virginia. Maybe it was something in the water.

... for providing the link to the video White Nights Lose My Breath? I finally got around to watching it this morning, which lead to looking up info on the movie, and to visiting two libraries to track down the movie. Which we are now watching.

Wednesday afternoon found me at the dentist, having one of my molars ground down. The top part of the tooth was more filling than tooth and needed a crown. I now have a temporary -- and a still sore jaw. I think I'm going to have to see the dentist sometime soon as I'm not convinced it's healing right and, even if it is, I need to have my bite guard adjusted. Right now I can't put it in without extreme pain and have been going without. Which isn't good as the last time I tried that I broke two teeth in as many weeks.

Friday night we went to see the Halloween double feature show at the Redford. It Came From Outer Space in 3D and starring Richard Carlson and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein with Bud Abbott and Lou Costello. The 3D parts of It Came From Outer Space were more unintentionally humorous than they were scary.

Saturday morning I went to Nia. I came home to shower and change clothes, then went off to the Coffee Beanery to meet up with what supposed to be a bunch of folks from Ravelry. The only two who showed up, however, were the woman who proposed the gathering and myself. We hung out for an hour and agreed to meet again next Saturday.

In the evening, Jebra was torn between going to The Ark and to Band-A-Rama at UofM. I suggested we go see Red. Which we did and which I enjoyed a great deal. I really like Helen Mirren and thoroughly enjoyed watching her on the big screen. That several parts of the movie called Hopscotch to mind was anther factor in its favor.

Sunday I slept in and then camped out on the couch with my knitting for a while. In the evening we went to Costco, then came home in plenty of time to see Sherlock. I still think Jeremey Brett played the definitive Holmes, but for an AU set in the 21st Century, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman rock mightily. I can see this quickly becoming one of my favorite pairings.

Two things came across my flist today.

One was the news that U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips ordered a worldwide injunction that immediately stops and and all enforcement of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. In addition, she ordered the government to suspend and discontinue all pending discharge proceedings and investigations under the policy. The DoJ has 60 days to appeal but I am feeling hopeful that they will not. As my friend alyburns notes, there is political wisdom in not filing an appeal. The order saves the Republicans from putting down in the public record a vote that ends DADT.

The other was this, the fagbug trailer:

ETA: Jebra, I just bought a copy of the movie.

Last night I began work on a ripple afghan. Although I remembered how to do a double crochet stitch, I suck at understanding crochet patterns. It took four tries to get the thing started, which is not a minor inconvenience when the thing begins with chain 178 and I don't detect the problem until the second row.

It probably didn't help that I'd been to the eye doctor earlier in the day and my pupils were still dilated. I have a new prescription and should have new lenses in a week and a half. This will be good as you know that big 'E' at the top of the eye chart? Well, that was the only letter I could make out with the old prescription.

While we were in Indiana for New Year's Eve, jebra and I watched Trapeze with our nephew Collin. Good gravy was Tony Curtis a tasty morsel in those days. As was Burt Lancaster. I've always liked Curtis, but Lancaster was a surprise. I looked him up on imdb and it seems the only other movie of his I've seen is Run Silent, Run Deep. And that was long enough ago that I don't remember anything about it other than the title.
