Movie Night

So we had hired a few movies on Saturday night, and watched one. Spider with Ralph Fiennes, Miranda Richardson, and Gabriel Byrnes. Hubby found it a little slow, but I really enjoyed the pace of it. It's had mixed reactions in some reviews, but I found it to be interesting and thought provoking, in fact I want to watch it again before it needs returned, and I might listen to the director's commentary too. I was amazed at how Fiennes put the character across without the dialogue. On Sunday, we had Big Sister and husband over, so we watched the other movie I rented after tea. It was Adaptation, with Nicolas Cage and Meryl Streep. We found it kind of confusing until we realized what the gist of the movie was. Don't want to say in case it ruins the film for anyone, but I enjoyed this one too. To compare to Spider though, I liked Spider more.

I have now caught Hubby's chest cold, and this brings me up to nearly a month of being under the weather. Yesterday morning I had a pulse of 116 sitting still, and it's this kind of thing that freaks me out. I have to wonder if it's going to be The One that accelerates me towards the wooden box. It slowed down on it's own after about half an hour, but didn't feel nice at all. My temperature hadn't even risen more than half a degree either, so it's a bit confusing!

During all the sickness and movies I have managed to get a bit done on the garter stitch sweater thing too. I'm nearly done with the first sleeve, and the body is done too. Will take a photo or two when it looks more like a sweater rather than just some knitted up squares.
