"...featuring Chaka Khan?"

evil_jim called me Friday afternoon to ask if I'd like to hang out on Saturday. We got together around noon and decided to check out The Ring Two. As probably none of you will recall, I wasn't thrilled with The Ring. It wasn't a waste of time, but at the time I didn't really feel like I'd need to see it again. I'd almost like to watch it now to see if I forgot any major plot points not reiterated in the sequel, but I'm not sure I have the patience.

Either way, The Ring Two was good for a matinee showing. Suspenseful but somewhat predictable. Nice special effects, if you happen to like that sort of thing and frankly, when it comes to mainstream horror films, why else would you go? The bottomless sense of oppression and futility? Wait for Guillermo Del Toro's At The Mountains of Madness. Where was I? Oh yes, changing the subject. Uh, Ring 2: If you're curious enough to consider buying the ticket, you might as well do it -- no matter what I've just typed, I liked it. Jim too, I think.

After the film we went to Half Price Books, where they're having a 20% off sale. There were books there I'd like, but the stack of books I've promised to read and return to people is still growing, so I settled on two CDs from the Cheaper Than Used Dirt bin and a four disc Motown collection priced at $9.98. With the discount, the whole thing came to just over ten bucks. Mercy.

Later in the evening I went to Ellen's and she made some of the best macaroni and cheese I've ever eaten. I hope she never shares the recipe because it would probably kill me. I also managed to rope her into watching They Might Be Giants: Here Come the ABCs with me and she enjoyed it. Well, either that or she lied to me. I know which one I'd probably do, but I think she liked it.

And now it's 1:30 on Sunday morning.
