Odds & Ends

December 21, 2011

1.  I saw the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo last night.  It was so, so good.  It followed the book pretty closely (I hate when the movie doesn't follow the book at all!).  And the acting- omg the acting!  Rooney Mara is awesome and may be my favorite actress now.

2.  Kingsley has an ear infection.  Poor baby :(  He will be going to the vet on Friday.  Maybe I can convince them to clip his Freddy Krueger nails while he's there, hmm.....

3. Five days 'til Christmas and I still have baking, shopping, cooking to do.  And send out some holiday cards. Aghhh!

4. Item 3 has me exhausted.  All I want to do is curl up on the sofa with a good episode of MI-5 (I'm hooked) and some coffee.

5.  I really wanted to do some recap posts of the last year, but I'm exhausted (see items 3 & 4).  Thus, it may or may not happen.

Happy Wednesday all!

I can't WAIT to see GWDT!! I think Rooney Mara definitely looks the part. Glad to know it didn't deviate from the book.

I'm sooo exhausted for the holidays too!
I also saw the Girl with Dragon Tattoo movie last night. I liked it a lot, though I think I liked the swedish versions slightly more. You should check them out if you're interested and don't mind subtitles (we saw them on Netflix streaming).

Ooh, I think I'm seeing it tonight! And I hope Kingsley feels better soon!

Have you seen the original GWDT movies? We really liked them and wondered how the remakes compare.

I definitely recommend the Swedish flicks. Haven't seen the US remake, but the first ones were brilliant!

Hope Kingsley is ok - happy new year! xx
