The day in food and activity

Lunch with Nate at Torero's; the small super nachos with chicken beat me hands down. He's doing OK and experiencing a peace that suggests God's reassurance. Even so, there's something a bit distant between us, though I'm inclined to think the answers will more likely be found on my end.

Jeremy and I had dinner at Bangkok on Fifteen ("Thai iced tea") and went to Pacific Place to catch 28 Days Later. We saw Connor and Sara there, and though Sara tried to persuade us to see Seabiscuit with them, we stood our ground (I do, however, intend to see it as well). The film isn't one I can give a blanket recommendation for— it's terribly disturbing both in content and due to extreme violence— but it's also quite thought provoking, especially for those with affinity for apocalyptic themes. A note to Jim the protagonist: life at the end of the world doesn't require you to be half or fully nude very often. In fact, I recommend something in black and red. Trust me on this one.

Now I'm settling in with a glass of cold milk and a plate of chocolate mint cookies from the freezer. That's the best.

Hmmm I was wondering about that one. I am a huge sucker for apocalytic themes (Christian and non). Perhaps it's a sign of my deep misanthropy. But I'd read some reviews that said the movie was little more than a bad zomie flick.

Of course, I fully intend to see Freddy v. Jason, so you see how high a tolerance I have for bad films (though I generally prefer to rent my scary stories, so I can hide my eyes and turn the lights on when appropriate).

Mmmm, cookies.
For you, I do recommend. It's a rare zombie flick that raises questions about the human condition. And stay to the end of the credits for the alternate ending.

More cookies soon. So good.
Tease. I shall taunt you with my cheddar-garlic biscuits.

yum...

you can never go wrong with frozen cookies. they do you right every time.
What did you think of 28 Days Later? My wife and I both really liked it.
I concur. Very well done.
