we saw the golden compass tonight. it was disappointing and a little boring. the best part is the bear. the characters aren’t well developed and new ones spring up abruptly, spouting extremely implausible, difficult to remember names. the witches were way too ren-faire.
otherwise, things in virginia are pleasant and a nice change from the stress just prior to and on christmas day.
after the movie was over, this very tall woman in the row in front of us stood up and started loudly berating her husband for not having an imagination.
