Some Random Stuff

First of all, shame on you, PRESS, for giving up the Prince's position. This was even more idiotic than Geraldo drawing a map in the sand.

Yes - he was released - and no, we're not free quite yet. The General is in Korea, and I'm predicting that after his meetings on Monday we will be free. I'm not holding my breath to hear any apologies either.

In the "oh, crap" category, we're renting the blu-ray discs of the final parts of The Sopranos via Netflix. We're awaiting episodes 5 & 6 now. We're also watching (live now) the final season of HBO's The Wire, and after each episode there's a write-up on by a group of fans. We just watched the most recent episode and while reading the Salon article afterward we COMPLETELY spoiled the ending of The Sopranos for ourselves. As we read the sentence we both yelled "OH MY GOD THAT DID NOT JUST HAPPEN!" and well, it sucks. But whatever - that show ended a year ago now, I guess it was wishful thinking that we'd avoid finding out what happened until we got to the end, but ....that blows.

Speaking of blu-ray - I'm thankful that I STOPPED my husband from buying an HD-DVD player because now blu-ray has WON! Yay! So for those that haven't jumped on this train yet - a PS3 is the cheapest blu-ray player, also plays games (duh) and regular DVDs, so I recommend it. The quality is amazing.

I did watch the Oscars and am SO thrilled for "Once" - a heartwarming amazing movie that I seriously have been recommending to people since we saw it in the movie theater before we left for Japan - which is now the winner of the best original song Oscar. Since then, Mia has also fallen in love with the soundtrack (it's basically a musical) and knows each song by heart and sings them with so much feeling - I wish that I could video the kid but she won't let me. I'll do that in secret one day. Craig and I are pretty sure we have one of the only 6-year-olds who can sing the whole soundtrack of Once, and if she was on American Idol, would sing "Lies" or "Falling Slowly" for sure! (we asked)

I'm sifting through pictures in my "reflection" time... some were from Shuri Castle a few weeks ago. Here's one of Mia with a group of super friendly Japanese girls who really liked her. They asked to have their pictures taken with her too.

More to come, probably later today.

You actually watched the Oscar's? The whole show? Live?

I'd rather sit through three weeks of house arrest that be forced to watch that Oscar telecast.
