Sunset and stuff


What’s the saying? Red in the night, shepherd’s delight. Red in the morning, sailor take warning.

Thankfully this was tonight’s sunset so hopefully that means we’re in for a nice day tomorrow.

Last night we went on a date 🙂  Dinner and a movie.  We ate Thai food at Lemongrass then went to see The Road.


This is not my favourite film. The more I think about it, the more I think it was a very, very good film. BUT it was dark and depressing and a little confronting. There were also some mild horror elements which caused me to not sleep so well last night.  Obviously it got to me.  Viggo Mortensen was wonderful as The Man.  If he hasn’t been nominated for an Oscar, he should be.

I much preferred No Country for Old Men by the same author but if you’re in the mood for some serious end-of-the-world storytelling (as opposed to that crap film 2012), you should go see it.  Be prepared to feel uncomfortable.

    I love red skies! On this side of the pond it is “Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky in morning, sailor take warning.”

    I have only seen Viggo Mortensen in one other movie besides LotR, so I may see it, when it comes out on Encore or Starz.

    You know it’s me, right?

    I wondered about that movie. So many movies are good, but they don’t really leave me feeling satisfied at the end. I don’t know how to describe it. Maybe that’s why I tend towards meaningless comedies.
