Happy Memorial Day!




Happy Memorial Day to all my fellow American Bloggers!! The weather's not too bad today, so just maybe I'll get to have my BBQ after all!! I have a couple of steaks in the frig along with a whole lot of brats! I wasn't feeling so hot yesterday, so I spent most of the day in bed. I think stress is getting to me. I really need a week on a beach somewhere peaceful. A book in one hand and a margarita in the other!! Ah....to dream!


We did go see Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End this weekend. I'm not going to write a long review. Books I can do.....movies, not so much! But I am going to say that for me personally, I loved it! I love action movies anyway, but Pirates are so much fun! I loved the killer action sequences, the fights, but most of all I love the characters. I'm a huge Johnny Depp fan anyway, but Jack Sparrow is his character, and he owns it. He is fantastic!! In this movie Keira Knightly is kick-ass as Elizabeth! She is tough, beautiful and especially fun to watch. And Orlando Bloom is a lot than in the previous movies. Not so sullen. (I do have to say my favorite part is the 5 minutes that Keith Richards is onscreen!)


All that being said, it's a BIG movie with a lot going on. We took the kids and it might not be such a good bet for smaller children. It's really long....going almost 3 hours from start to finish. And there is SO much stuff going on that it got kind of confusing. My 10-year-old spent most of the movie asking questions about this and that......but at least he got it! The girls had no idea about the plot. They just liked the action! It was fun. If you've seen the other two, then you will probably have to see this one!!







Well....I can now hear the rain hitting the patio roof, so I guess I may be ordering pizza instead of BBQ. Oh well.....
Later!!

Happy Memorial Day, Stephanie. I hope you can have your barbecue after all. I'm glad you liked the movie. I got a little lost in the plot, too, but I still enjoyed basking in the Johnny Depp-ness of it all.

It sounds like you had a nice day, Stephanie. Hubby and I also went to see the new Pirates movie and had a blast. We both really enjoyed it.

I'm hoping to sneak off to the theater sometime next week to see Pirates. I hope you got your bbq! I know my Mom in TX didn't. Blah!
