So I went to the parents for the 4th of July weekend. Dad was dorky enough to subscribe to digital cable just so he could order the final game of the Euro Cup. Does anyone out there have digital cable? The person at the office told us that you have to pay the monthly rate for each digital box you have. So if you got a plan at $60 a month and you wanted digital cable on two tvs, you'd have to pay $120. That makes no sense to me.

Saturday I went to A's and watched 50 First Dates and Monster. Both are good movies. I had no idea about what happens in Monster and was still hoping for a decent ending.

Sunday was Spider-Man 2 day!!! w00t. It was so good. I thought it had a touch too much angst. but still good. The CG is so much better than it was in the first movie. I just rewatched parts of the first and there is a huge difference in the web slinging and action shots.

Monday I saw Farenheit 9/11. I'm not gonna lie: it's pretty much propoganday. Different than the stuff we're force fed on tv and by the government, but still biased. It made me think and that's all I ask of those types of movies.

I got to spend time with my cat. Turns out she hurt herself on her side and the wound got infected. No one noticed it because it was hiding underneath her fur (she's a long hair) and she didn't act like she was in pain. She was taken to the vet and they had to shave the area and lance the wound. Poor kitty has a bald spot.

All in all I had a nice weekend. The parents of course could not get along for long, but there weren't any large blow-ups. Found out little sister got a job at the local Subway/TCBY combo store. She doesn't like it much all ready.
