Gingerbread and deviled eggs

I figured out what I will make for the office food thingie on Tuesday. Thanks for the recipe, Lisa L.

I think I will go see the Disneyfied Narnia despite the warnings about its heavy-handed jesusness. Both Salon (bastards make you watch an ad first) and the Washington Post gave it decent reviews, but most compelling of all, Mr. Cranky gave it only one bomb, his rarely-bestowed highest ranking. I've heard the movie is supposed to be a visual feast, and I just loves me some visual feasting. Mr. Pants probably doesn't want to see it because there are no zombies in it, but I bet he'll go with me because he just likes movies.

let me know how it turns out!

my perspective on the Narnia movie is similar to yours. i had no idea that it was supposed to be a christian metaphor until i got to college and discovered that C.S. Lewis is a christian author. actually, when i discovered that, i felt kind of betrayed.

nevertheless, they were some of my favorite books when i was a growing up; i got a boxed set of the whole series one year for christmas.

also, i love tilda swinton (who plays the white witch).

so i'm probably going to have to go see the movie. the previews do make it look amazing.
