July 18, 2005
This just in: actress Sandra Bullock has married Jesse James. Bullock, 40 and James, 128, exchanged vows Saturday in a cemetery in southwestern Missouri. No, wait. She married Jesse James the biker guy who has the reality show. Dammit! I got real excited there for a minute.

I think the smoke we are smelling in the evenings is probably monsoon winds kicking up the ash from the expired Cave Creek Complex fire and blowing it in our faces. Just a theory. No more fires have been reported in our area.

Christina and Tomcat went to Blockbuster yesterday and got a Spanish movie: The Sea Inside. Of course it was in Spanish with English subtitles and she appreciated that because she could enjoy it and not have to think so hard. Besides, we don’t like dubbed in our house. Very sad movie, about euthanasia. The Spanish seem to like going for more serious subjects than Americans (Fantastic Four!). Enjoyed it though. We all cried and then went to Dairy Queen.

Regarding Tomcat and Christina being trapped in Mexico:
"So next time I am hung up in a Mexican Jail, I can call you and you will send Lawyers, Guns and Money or whatever to get me home. Excellent"

Finished the OK Corral opium scene this morning. Excellent effects on curling smoke and the dusty street scene where the body was found. Unfortunately, I spent way too long on it and now I’m behind bigtime. Also need to finish the writing, which is hanging out also.

"Writing is no trouble: you just jot down ideas as they occur to you. The jotting is simplicity itself—it is the occurring which is difficult."
—Stephen Leacock
