I am finally done with East of Eden. It is my new favorite book. I loved it. I could resonate with almost all the characters in it in some way. I do have some questions though that are unanswered. Maybe I wasn't paying attention to those parts, but was there any resolution with Tom and Dessy when Tom gave her the drink and Dessy was sick...It made it sound like Tom was going to kill himself from grief and guilt, but then the story ended all the sudden? I can't think of anymore questions, but I will comment when I remember.

Lately, Aaron and I have seen a lot of new movies. On vacation we were able to see Napoleon Dynamite, Mona Lisa Smile, and half of Raising Helen. And since we have been back we have taken advantage of our Netflix subscription which we have seen Home on the Range and SWAT. Tonight we will watch Connie and Carla probably. To my surprise I really liked Mona Lisa Smile. I heard bad things that it was feminist and such, but I didn't think it was too controversial. I enjoyed it as well as Napoleon Dynamite. I only saw half of Raising Helen because, well, it sucked and was terribly predictable. Home on the Range was good but a let down from what I expected. SWAT I had already seen before-lame, but Aaron hadn't so he watched it. I heard Connie and Carla was a miss, but I am still curious about it since I thought Nia did a fabulous job on My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Speaking of which the dude on MBFGW is on Raising Helen. Anywho, we no longer have lives b/c we will be watching enough movies to sink a ship. (Its good thing for us with no rental fees and plus we don't go out on the weekends much anymore.)
