Serenity: Had some problems with it, doesn't mean I hated it. I'd call them personal problems.

Myself, paraphrased, from keryx's birthday last night, during a discussion of space tourism: "I'd rather be here eating chips and having sex."

I was alert and awake for the whole trip down to Richmond and the whole trip back; love the ipod. I have developed something I think many ipod users suffer from which is "next song disease". You're listening to shuffle mode and you may like this song but you have to hit 'forward' just to see what's next. We skipped or listened to 144 out of 3809. Didn't get to sleep until after 4am again.

Finished the Niffenegger book. Handed it off to Jack. It was really, really good.

would you say you have to be familiar with the show in order to see the movie?

nah. it might even make it more fun to come into it with no expectations.

The only thing I noticed is that there was minimal character development. I was not a big fan of the show, but I think that I would not have cared about the characters nearly as much if I had only seen the movie.

That said, I really enjoyed the film.

I've heard other people say the same, but I didn't notice right away, probably because I'm dense. :)

And after Jack is done, may I steal the Niffenegger for a bit? Or do more book club people need to have a go?

Sho' nuff. Book club is Oct 17th so after that you're clear for Niffenegger.

Excellente, thank you. Perhaps you will come to my party on the 29th and hand it off in person? ;)

I feel as if everyone went to see Serenity this weekend but me. I must get a life.

Perhaps you didn't see it because you do have a life! Many things are more important than movies. :)

Have to disagree on space tourism. There are phases that most all boys go through. They love bugs and/or dinosaurs. They love space. They love cars. They love girls.

I'd give up an afternoon of sex and chips to be in space. And when they get space hotels, you best believe I'm bringing Jenna and I'm going to have sex and chips in space.

I was talking about when it goes wrong and you all die in the black void. I'd rather have the rest of my life of sex and chips than risk becoming so much space detritus. I've seen movies! I know what can happen!
