Painty Spidey

I did the second coat of colored primer in the new room today, so that means we're all ready to do actual paint. This is exciting. Also, I didn't drop any more cans of paint. Go, me!

I went to see Spiderman2 with a bunch of people tonight. Dinner in Chinatown and then a fun movie -- yay!

Re: Spidey: I don't know the comic books, so I can't compare, but... I liked it! Mostly. Kirsten Dunst drives me a little crazy, and, frankly, I'm sick to death of women screaming and flailing their arms helplessly in movies. I'm so sick of it that even when they have a good reason to scream, like being grabbed by a mechanical octopus arm intent on doing them harm, it annoys me. Why can't moviemakers give women something more interesting to do? At least let them yell or bellow occasionally! Otherwise, yay, Spidey!

I also saw some previews that looked good. I love previews. I should start a movies-to-see list, and then get a netflix account in the winter.
