I normally don’t watch many summer movies because most of them are usually stupid, or bad. This year under the influence of the husband I went out and saw quite a few. It was no doubt one of the better summers. Along with other films I saw earlier and later this year, here are my rankings, from best to worst (some are really hard to compare with each other but):
- Lust, Caution
- The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
- The Bourne Ultimatum
- Live Free or Die Hard
- I Am Legend
- Knocked Up
- Ocean’s Thirteen
- Shrek 3

What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace. –Agnes M. Pharo
Wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Just got back from Hawaii vacation. Immediately felt guilty that I haven’t posted for almost a week. The trip was nice (and warm!) but the last couple of days we caught the rain. I also got an unexpected “souvenir” from a kayak-hiking-river-crossing trip: mosquito bites! A whopping 40 of them!! All within one hour of walking in the woods! My legs and arms looked like, well, I can’t think of anything that looks quite like them. It’s quite a sight.
A colleague showed me this and it made my day…
