Poker Face

What is the verdict chaps? Is it worth seeing? Based on the reviews it sounds more like the gritty Jason Bourne than the smarmy chauvinist who needs a slap. Someone said to me yesterday that they thought it should have been an 18 rather than 12A which makes the comment on Kermode's podcast even more disturbing (someone took their 4 year old to see it). I must admit the central plot of a prolonged poker game doesn't inspire me but then again I can't imagine they are playing cards for 90 minutes. I am mulling over whether to go and see it soon or just wait for the DVD rental.

There is quite a lot of background to this, but I won't bother here. I thought I should just upload it.

Penguin Vicar...

"I am an Anglican" Unpainted Huffheims (circa 2002)
Anyways - this is part of the solution when you want to get kids to think about marriage vows in a sex, divorce, marriage unit. The ending is a little rough, but they love it.

Denver - CO

Here I am in a very sunny 20 degree Littleton, Denver. Hidden by the tree are the Rockies. While I am here I have been instructed by Mrs Frog:

  • Not to have any fun
  • Not to go skiing or snowboarding

I am trying.

UPDATE. In fact today I tried not to have fun snowboarding at Brekenridge. It was very difficult, even though only 10% of runs were open.

T Frog.
