This should be good.

My 80-year-old dad and my 77-year-old mom went to see Brokeback Mountain the other day. They thought they were going to see a traditional Hollywood Western. I've been too busy to call them, but when I do, I'll say, "So. How was the movie?"

Here's how today went: Up at 6:30 AM. Operating from 7:30 AM to 3:30 PM. Catching up on office work, surfing, and blogging: 3:30 to 6:00. Hospital committee meeting: 6:00 to 8:00. Home at about 8:20. Chess with Jake until 10:00. I'm going to type up Jake's homework for tomorrow, and then I'm going to crash. G'night, moon. D.

I'm curious as to the Brokeback Mountain reaction. I haven't seen it, but then we don't get to go to movies in the theatre much, saddled as we are with small children.

Like the time I recommended Kentucky Fried Movie to my parents ... you will never hear the end of it.

You let your 10 year old stay up until 10:00?

DON'T let my 11 year old know!

Dean, the last movie I saw in the theater was Harry Potter Goblet of Fire. I think we get out to theaters only 2 or 3 times a year.

Blogenfreude, what on earth could they have found objectionable about Kentucky Fried Movie? (The "Catholic Schoolgirls in Trouble" sequence, perhaps?)

Maureen, Jake is a night owl. With melatonin, we've been able to get him to sleep by midnight. At one point he was staying up until 2 - 3AM reading in bed. It's one of the reasons we homeschool him. Not the main reason, but a big one nonetheless.

Hey, can you type up my homework while you're at it?

Good, God. When do you sleep? Still up at eleven, getting up at 6:30, ugh.

The older I get...the MORE sleep I require.
