(The sad thing is, Lizzie is all congested, too. :-( *I* won't go to the doctor, but I might have to take her to the v-e-t.)
Anyway. I have some thoughts on what I've been watching. Bear in mind these are filtered through a Robitussin filter.
The Forbidden Kingdom. This was a really fun movie. I enjoyed it SO much more than The Bank Job (Mr. RCM's pick). Jackie Chan and Jet Li. About 75% extended fight scenes, 10% story, 15% stuff that was just cool to look at. A definitely recommend.
