drawing class today. Been meaning to do this for a long time. You know: it's one of those things that kept getting shoved to the back of the line. So. Time to get the pads of paper, the charcoals, and the sketchbook out. Well, next week it will be. It's either a good ending to this year or a good start to next; you can look at it from both sides, depending on the date you're lookin'. Check that one off my list. =-)
Ok, going to the movies now. True Grit. I'll say hi to the cowboys for ya. Next, I want to see Colin Firth in The King's Speech. I love Colin Firth. Always. As I told DH today, anyone else who has played or should happen to play Mr. Darcy was/is/will be merely a pretender. He IS Mr. Darcy. Definitively, and forever. Period. =-)
Edited to add: I really LOVED True Grit! Jeff Bridges is brilliant as Rooster Cogburn, Matt Damon brings a little class and, well, Matt Damon-ness (love him), and Hailee Steinfeld as Maddie was perfect casting; she is SO good. In all of the roughness and gore there was a quirky sense of chivalry and honor...the code of the west kind of thing, and even hilarity. Yes, the movie is violent and a little difficult to watch in some parts, but, come on: Coen Brothers, the reality of the wild west (it wasn't really nice and pretty and tied up with a bow like the westerns of our childhood, ya know)...you pretty much know what you are in for. But worth the ticket and time. I'd pay to watch it again.
