So I took the kids to see WANTED yesterday afternoon. GO SEE IT. IT ROCKS. I’d give the story a six or seven (esp because of a couple things toward the end) and the special effects a 10 (in part because they were uber-cool yet you weren’t bombarded with them). I can’t wait for this one to come out on video so I can see it again!
I also have two copies of Lynn Viehl’s TWILIGHT FALL to give away. Leave a comment between now and Saturday midnight (central time). Anyone’s eligible. Consider it my Canada Day/Fourth of July gift to you all.
One last thing. I was reading this post at Agent Janet Reid’s blog and it really got me to thinking. It’s not for the faint of heart. You were warned. Anyway, it got me to thinking and I wanted to ask you all a question. When’s the last time you smiled or said hi to a stranger? Do you make it a point to on a regular basis? I do. It’s a small thing, but I always think, especially if I’m in the store or something and it’s 5:00 PM and I see someone who looks grumpy, “What if they’ve had a really bad day?”
And inevitably, they always smile back.
Can one little smile make a difference? Can you change someone’s (possibly) crappy day? Help it end on a high note? Does it matter? I think it does. I really do. So go say hi to a stranger and smile.
Happy Fourth of July.
