I WENT TO A MOVIE

I decided to go to a movie this afternoon.   I've been home with this bronchitis & ear infection crud since returning from Alaska and am definitely getting cabin fever.  So I decided to go out to a movie.  I think it was a very good movie and hopefully can get the DVD when it comes out, so I can watch it again and hear the dialog.  The problem was my ears are still so messed up, I could only hear about half of it.  I was about to scream out "turn up the volume" but when I looked around .....no one was cupping their ears trying to hear so I figured it was my problem alone.    Anyway, it was "The Illusionist."  Set in 19th-century Vienna, I loved the setting and the costumes, etc.  Jessica Biel was beautiful and Edward Norton as the magician was very handsome.  I recommend it to all you movie lovers out there.

As we celebrate the Labor Day weekend here in the U.S.    Let us not forget those who may not get a three day weekend.  Those working in law enforcement, hospitals, fire fighters and the many others who labor around the clock to keep this country running.  I'm also thinking of those dear folks on our east coast who are getting deluged with rain and wind.  May they be safe. 

Until next time.........Linda

P.S. the popcorn was delicious and well as the Coke !

Glad you liked the movie, I don't think it's out over here, I've not heard of it. Vienna is a lovely place to visit, I went a few years back, I'd like to see it in the movie! I hope your ears will soon start working again! Nothing worse than not being able to hear what's going on. Have a good Sunday! Jeannette xx
