  1. What I Didn’t Do On My Summer Vacation: Take a vacation. The film shoot I’m on finishes this week.

    I’ve been able to check on my tomato plants every weekend, though, and in the past three weeks they’ve grown from about six inches to about three feet. Should be a good crop this year. Not that I really know what the hell I’m doing, but I’m learning.

  2. I am sure once jody returns to work he will then have time to address the needs and desires of his adoring blog community….it makes no sense to attend to this on his own time when one may aquire paid time doing this activity unknowingly from his employer….hey whatever happened with all that work stuff….

  3. Summer vacation? What is this “summer vacation” thing of which you speak? Such wonderous events are unknown to me!

    (I don’t have vacation until after Labour Day, when I’ve officially been here for a year. For now, I’m making do with a day off here and there.)

  4. I re-watched “Ratatouille” a few weeks ago and enjoyed it much more than I did when I saw it in a theatre. For some reason, I was able to pick up on the subtleties of the characters’ expressions better on a TV than in a theatre. That made all the difference. “Finding Nemo” and “Wall-E” are still at the top of my Pixar list, but “Ratatouille” jumped up a few notices to #3. This is my Pixar list:

    1. Finding Nemo
    2. WALL-E
    3. Ratatouille
    4. A Bug’s Life
    5. Up
    6. Toy Story
    7. Toy Story 2
    8. Toy Story 3
    9. The Incredibles
    10. Monsters Inc
    11. Cars.

    Although I’ll could pass on numbers 6-11, it’s hard to find a bad movie in the bunch.
