nother lazy evening.....

Well I spent another lazy afternoon and evening yesterday. I got home from work and for me yesterday was a 5 hour meeting mapping out one of our processes. Although it was a well run and very informative and productive meeting (which I like - there is nothing worse than a non-productive meeting) I was still tired when I got home from work. Jade has been visiting friends for a few days so it was just me and the boys (and Charlie and Shadow), so I curled up on Poppa's chair with my book. I read for a while and I think I might even have dozed off for a bit. Then Joe came in and asked if we wanted to watch True Grit. So we did. I have not seen all of the original, only bits and pieces, but this one was pretty good. Joe said many parts were word for word from the original and then there were other parts that were added in. I saw Jeff Bridges on Ellen when he was talking about the part and he said when the Coen brothers asked him to play Rooster Cogburn he said why would you want to do a remake of a John Wayne movie. They assured him that they were not doing a remake of the movie, their script was following the novel. So maybe that is why there were a few changes along the way. I think I will read the book some day. I must say though, that even though I really really like Jeff Bridges, I liked John Wayne's work better. On the other hand though - I really liked the girl who played Maddie Ross. I found the girl in the original extremely irritating..I think it was her voice, but this girl, I liked her spunk. I think she will go places with her acting career. Chow for now Jacqui
