Yay, Slumdog!

Hola. Checking in with ya again.

Hope you had a fab weekend. I did and of course it goes by so quickly.

We had dinner at home on Friday night and just chilled. After some landlord chores at Hal's duplex on Saturday, we headed to a late lunch and realized that we hadnt seen any of the Oscar nominated films. So, we changed that. I was torn between Milk and Slumdog Millionaire. After checking the showtimes, it was an easy decision considering Milk wasnt being shown at the only theater I can think of for that type of movie.

We got there about 15 minutes before showtime, but it was still hard to find 2 seats. A fun random thing was that we ended up sitting only 2 seats away from some friends.
The movie was awesome and it deserved to win some Oscars. I obviously cant compare it to the other nominees in each category, but you should check it out if you havent already. I loved the flashback storytelling aspect. I really loved the ending but wont spoil it for those who havent seen it.

I'll wrap this up with something that excites very few of you except me... we came home & caught a Preds game on TV... and we won in overtime. Every win is crucial at this point. I was a little ticked that neither of us won a trip to see the Preds on the road in Chicago but C'est la vie!!!

Hope you have a great week. There are 3 Preds games. Not sure I'm going to any but send positive thoughts their way.

I totally thought "Slumdog" deserved the Oscar. It was a big night for them. I was also thrilled that Sean Penn won for "Milk." I hope you can see that one soon!
