Oh, Lydia, it looks like it has been a long day.
JoJo has been such a pill this weekend, all whiny and bossy. Ugh. Not a joy to be around.
We did manage to get out and see Black Swan last night. Two great big gigantic thumbs up for that movie. What a gorgeous movie and the sound engineering was so well done. I loved how they kept in all the sounds that you normally don't hear at the ballet that illustrate what hard work it is. And I am glad we saw it on the big screen because I might have missed some of the details (like the recurring pin-feathers on her skin or the unpredictable sounds of wings flapping). What a great movie. I love it when you see a movie that makes sense on all levels. And all the icky stuff didn't bother me too much, because it was a part of the story. Although afterwards, my husband said that maybe we are too inured to yucky stuff from watching "Spartacus" for the past month! Anyone else watch Spartacus? LOVE that series, but it is so gory and bloody that it was hard to watch at first.
