Focus Forward

As my orthodontics and jaw surgery have come to a successful end, I've decided to expand the focus on this blog to talk about.... life in general. Observations, exasperations, and perhaps even exclamations. It's all trial and error.... and so I brace myself. :)

  • Facebook - If you don't have an account there yet, get one! It's not just for students anymore.
  • Lust, Caution - Caution: total movie bust. Perhaps the hype spoiled it for me. But this was one of the worst Ang Lee movies I've ever watched, despite rave reviews.
  • Beowulf - No 300.... but wow the computer-generated graphics were amazing. The details were vivid: skin texture, fine hair, snow, ripples, trees. You gotta see it to believe it!
  • Christmas in New York - The tree at Rockefeller Center! Broadway! The Met! Nothing beats a white Christmas. :)
  • Presents - I plan to do 80% of my Christmas shopping online. You? Take the survey in the upper left corner of this page!

Hey Kristen, I like the picture of you just below, you look very hip! I gave up x-mas shopping about 10 years ago -- its just too hectic. I did a toy drive that year and asked everyone to donate a toy instead of doing a gift exchange and in years since I like to donate to the LA Food Bank. Its really taken a lot of stress out of the holidays and takes the attention off of all the consumerism. Jeff bakes cookies for his clients and I bring them into the office. Anyway, hope you have a great thanksgiving! M

Mary, that's a great idea! Yes I agree the holidays have been terribly commercialized. Best to think about those less fortunate and share our blessings. Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!
