Saw Hitchhiker's yesterday. It was pretty good. Not amazing, but not teh suck, either. It could have been a lot better, I think, but it still had a number of laugh-out-loud moments and Martin Freeman was totally cute as Arthur, which is really all I was hoping for.

In other news, my great-aunt Mary Alice died this weekend. She was ninety-four and had been in a nursing home for the last few years, so it's not a shock or anything. She was the last surviving family member from my grandparents' generation, though. She had polio as a child and had to wear leg braces her whole life, but that woman had the constitution of a horse and the temperament of a saint.

The funeral's friday, but I don't think we're going. Part of me would love to go back to Heidelberg again, but I think it would just be too hard being there without my mom. We always went together to go visit the Mississippi relatives and I don't want to face them without her. And since they couldn't make it to my mom's funeral I feel less of an obligation to force myself to go.

Aw, I'm sorry Sus. 94 is a fabulously long life and it sounds like she was a very strong woman.

I'm glad you liked H2G2! More or less. I think we all have "more or less" feelings about it. Martin was a great Dent Arthur Dent and I just love Sam Rockwell. I laughed out loud (the only one in a packed theatre) at the sofa scene.
