A couple of things

Isn't Sneakers a great movie? Robert Redford, Sidney Poitier, River Phoenix, Ben Kingsley, Mary McDonnell, Dan Ackroyd and David Strathairn. What a great cast and what a fun movie. Just watched it again last night. It's only been 16-17 years, but they just don't make 'em like they used to anymore.

And someone near and very dear to my heart is thinking about starting her own blog. Words of encouragement are always appreciated.

Have a great weekend!


Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. All the hackers are doing it.

I love Sneakers - haven't seen it in a long time, though.

Anything at all with the marvellous Dan Ackroyd in it, is worth watching.

Truly a man amongst men.

It is a good movie, hadn't thought of it in a couple of years. It is one of the movies that I'll watch just about every time it comes on.

The whole cast was remarkable.

I tried to post a comment, on Gia's blog, but was unable to get it posted. So please tell her the following:

"I was an English major too (English-creative writing), and I think very fast (I am "unipolar"--never depressed, always manic). You can't "think to fast for this blogging thing!"
In fact, fast-thinking people often have especially good blogs! And I can see, from this single post, that this definitely wasn't a mistake! You're on a roll, with your blog--keep rolling!"

I must have watched Sneakers about fifty times right after it came out on video. I miss River.

Avitable - I just happened to stumble on it that day.

Jimmy - He needs to be working more.

Bob S - I know what you mean.

Michelle - let's see if she likes it.

Scott - will do!

Faiqa - what could have been, eh?

Hey that's awesome about Gia starting her own blog! I was just over there to say hi. She catches on fast and I'm sure will have tons of readers in no time. :)
