FORGIVE THE FISH METAPHOR, BUT THE SUSHI IS TELLING
The sushi was awesome, though the kids were of divided minds. We sat at the tables in the back—they have exactly 10 chairs in a tiny back room (and a counter up front that seats 4). The fish was fresh and the spicy salmon roll rocked my socks. The kids were a bit taken aback by a strange maki piece that was PINK instead of the usual seaweed black. I asked the owner what it was: soybean paper! I didn't get one, so didn't taste it this time. Anders said it was nothing to write home about, but it sure was pretty! :D

We swung by the grocery store on the way home and picked up vittles for myskväll and then popped The Fellowship of the Ring into the DVD player. About 40 minutes in, Martin declared it was too scary and he couldn't watch it anymore and he got up and backed out of the living room...but couldn't actually make the break and tear himself away. He got about as far as the fish tank and then the movie reeled him back in again. He protested twice more but ended up sitting back on the big chair with his father, CAUGHT BY HOBBITS.

At the 2 hour line, when the screen abruptly went blank and then the message came up that the movie continued on Disc 2, I chirped, "Bedtime, kids! It's 10 o'clock!" Baffled glares greeted me from 2 directions. "But MOOOMMMM," it's not over yet!" stormed Karin. I said I knew that, but each of the movies is nearly 4 hours long and we will continue tomorrow night. Silence greeted this announcement and then Karin said, with shock and a dawning sense of injustice, "But...it will take us A MONTH to watch the whole thing!"

"Well, yes," I agreed, "Even if we watch 2 hours each Friday and Saturday..." (here Anders put his head in his hands and moaned) "it will take us 3 weekends." This was not accepted with enthusiasm, but TO BED! I pointed and finally, grumping all the way, they went.

I have:

A painful cramp in my mouse hand
A cryk in my neck
PC elbow
Badly blurry and irritated eyes

Some Moms have already seen the entire movie....so they don't care about knowing for sure what happens! Feeling sorry for my Grandkids! Does this count as Movie Abuse? Love, Lizardmom

Hey, THEY picked it! I'm just the enabler.

That's it, MOVIE ABUSER! Haha, I would have been the same way.

I just have to tell you, stories about Karin and Martin make me excited for all the fun stuff awaiting me in a few years when my kids are just a little bit older.

I'm more than a little envious of the frequency with which you guys eat sushi (or it sounds that way). I think it should be required eating once a week. :-)

Well, you have to be careful depending on where you are...I read recently that mercury levels in tuna were tested in NY sushi restaurants and were so high they recommended only eating 1 piece a MONTH. So far, I haven't heard anything like that here, and at least our salmon is really fresh. I ate sushi several times a month, but the kids only get it maybe twice a month, if that :) I seem to TALK about it every time, though!

The universe is telling you...

...More Viggo Mortensen, of course! (At least, it tells ME that.) (Frequently.)

Re: The universe is telling you...

Never enough! :D

aw, I envy yr kiddies having TLOTR unseen yet...sigh..

I know :) And they haven't even read the books yet! Although I find having not watched the films in a very long time, it's almost, sort of, like new again.

i havent even seen the extended version of all the movies...WAY too long..haha. one of these days i'll get around to seeing that last one i guess.

i think the universe is telling you to get away from the computer for a bit and get a massage ;)

*whispering* I think you're right.

BUTTT MOMMMMM! I would have caved in...hehehe!!

I have just bought a gel ball from Clas Ohlson, it really does help with mouse cramp. That together with a mean masage has done the trick for me.

Our whole setup at home is not very good. I'm courting carpal tunnel, I'm sure.

I think the universe is telling you that you need more time with ozswede (and Lambi).

As for the movie... shudder.... I'm never good with tv at the best of times but a movie that long - no way. I'd rather be covered with paper cuts and have lemon juice rubbed in than sit through that. I'd even rather have my arse whipped by you at Scrabble .... (okay, maybe not that last one)

well, you don't have to worry much about the last one...I think I've beaten you ONCE, and not by a very wide margin!

Buy yourself a tablet! :)

"But MOOOMMMM" I remember that protest all to well... uttered from this very mouth.

Also, I had to laugh at the 'painful cramp in my mouse hand' because I've had a 'fat finger' for a week now (trying to finish a website in record time means that my mouse finger is working overtime = inflammation. ouch.)

bohemiangirl

ouch is right! Hope you're done with the website and can give it a rest :)
