John Carter

March 31st, 2012 at 07:38 pm

I took my youngest niece to see John Carter yesterday. We had both heard it wasn't very good. But we both really liked it, so I don't know why the reviewers thought that. I think it's one of the better movies I've seen in a long time. I spent $13

We went to lunch afterwards at Sonic and I spent another $12.

I had lunch with her at my parents on Wednesday too, so was able to catch up. She's a mess. She lies constantly, but what can I do? Just be with her and tell her I love her.

I finally started on my taxes. Should finish in the next couple of days.

Starz is free this weekend and I've watched several movies. Friends with Benefits - good. Resident Evil - Afterlife - very good. Burlesque - very good. Soul Surfer - very good.

I also got Bridesmaids from Netflix. My niece told me it was my sister's type of humor, so I figured I wouldn't like it and I didn't. Not my thing.

My older niece sent me a picture of some old books she bought at a thrift store for $5. She didn't go far from the aunt tree Smile She loves just looking at books and using them for decoration.

I finished reading the library book A Beautiful Friendship by David Weber. Sci/Fi - good.

    I haven't seen John Carter yet, but it does look good. Of the other movies, I've not seen Resident Evil or Bridesmaids. Really enjoyed the other ones though (Soul Surfer and FWB.)

    It's really hard when a family member has a pattern that leads to constant untruths... on the good side, sometimes there is insurance that people will grow out of it with time and experience. I have a family member who was a mess like that for many years, but he has mellowed and improved dramatically in the past decade or so. Good luck, and you are so right to just be with her and show love!

    I've heard that for what its worth, John Carter is pretty good and relatively faithful to the books. Hardly Ishtar or Heaven's Gate (even Heaven's Gate wasn't Heaven's Gate).

    So sorry about the family member who is a mess. Love of course, but she's got to curb the lying. Lying just takes too much trouble.
