Just returned from a brief trip to Barcelona. My first time in Europe. Good times were had. Perhaps a picture in the next few days.
One of more interesting things about the trip was the daily calls to Kid Millions (who stayed home in the able hands of Grandma and Grandpa). With a 6 hour time difference it was a bit surreal being constantly reminded of how the life I live 98% of the time exists on a totally different time plane. While me and Mrsbiz are wrapping up a day of sightseeing and getting ready for dinner and drinks, the boy is just getting his day started. Felt like an alternate reality of sorts.
Anywho, was great to get out. Was even better to return.
And while Im on a completely different subject, three short reviews for movies recently seen.
Alice in Wonderland - Almost managed to be entertaining until the ending came along and absolutely ruined any good will it had managed to build. If Tim Burton allowed that JarJarBanks moment of stupidity at the end with less protest than than I imagine....well...color me disappointed. Perhaps he should stick with stop motion and stop employing Mr. Depp (though his wife was solidly amusing as ever).
Sherlock Holmes - Saw it on the plane on a 6" screen about 6" from my face. Surprisingly enjoyable me thought. Plot was garbage but characters and scenarios were thoroughly amusing. Part 2 with a less scoffable storyline? One can hope.
Public Enemies - Surprisingly boring with characters that failed to engage me in any way. A long plane ride seemed even longer. Well at least Johnny didn't dance a jig at the end.
