Finally, Tom and I had a real day-off together and we did all the things which didn't happen last Thursday. The only thing that went wrong on this day off? Our Internet was out for nearly 10 hours.
I just barely survived that.
Isn't it wild how dependent we become upon these things? Since we couldn't check online as to when Spider-Man would begin, we just showed-up at the theater, and wow, we were perfectly on time. Fun.
Anyway, for the first time, we watched a film in 3-D. Wow! Spoiled for life. And the movie, itself? Wonderful. Awesome. Didn't even miss Tobey Maguire like I imagined I would.
Instead? The new Spider-Boy-Man reminded Tom and me sooo much of Naomi's former boyfriend, Carl, that it practically felt like watching Carl play the role up there on the screen! :)
Think I'm exaggerating? Well, here's a photo of Carl (on the right, of course):
And here's a picture of the new Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield:
See? And put Carl in a suit like Andrew's, shave all his facial hair, and well, you've got the doppelganger thing going. heh. The other coincidence is that Carl's brother's name is Andrew and he looks like both these guys, too!
Anyway, I totally recommend seeing at least one film in your lifetime in 3-D. Truly a fun, you-are-there experience. Also felt quite vintage-retro as all seven of us in the theater (love those small crowds) sat facing the lighted screen with the reflections upon our 3-D glasses. You know, kinda like this:
So Tom gets today off, also, and I will return to the excellence thing I mentioned to you in my last post. You know, actually completing things, rather than postponing them, allowing them to weigh upon my brain:
trimming the hedges,
mailing cards to friends,
replacing worn-out stuff with new,
stocking-up on groceries and emergency supplies,
painting our kitchen arch and a dining room wall,
'building' a basement room,
giving our neighbor some canned cat food our cats wrinkled their noses at,
taking more walks,
buying worms for the new soil I've hauled in (our worn-out yard has no worms--scary!),
washing our winter blankets,
buying some new-to-me clothes to replace old ones...
... my, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice procrastination! And how good of God to keep nagging us into holiness which is always for our benefit--and our mental, emotional and physical health, too.
And may you live practicing excellence, too.... I would hate to be alone in all this! :)
