Fridays with Jim and Ginger

This Friday brought us a wonderful change of pace. We decided on a movie and dinner. The movie was The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I wasn't sure if it would be good and Jim really wasn't sure about it. I like deep movies, he likes comedy so I won on this one. It is the story of a man who is born old and gets younger each day. It is a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald and the movie verson stars Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett. How can you go wrong with that?

Anyway, I absolutely loved it! I am going to have to buy the book. There were so many little treasures throughout that I want to remember and maybe even quote. I don't know when I have enjoyed a movie this much.

Dinner? Taco Bell. Couldn't have been better.

I am glad that you loved the movie. I could not decide whether to see it or not and now I will. Thanks for the great review. I will need to get the book too. I need a book to read.

Glad you had a fun time! I'm not sure if I'll see the movie (as if I ever get out to see movies these days!), but I like the idea of reading the book. Thanks for the recommendation!

That's good that you enjoyed the movie and that you got to see one that you would enjoy! I have not seen it, but it has received so many good reviews and ratings on so I really want to see it!


I want to see it but I don't know when we will ever get the chance. Maybe I will have to get the book. I am glad that you guys had such a good time!

Thanks for the review. Have been watching and wasn't sure whether I would like it. I am STILL unhappy with Brad Pitt over his slimy behavior, so had reservations.
And love the gourmet dinner y'all had. Sounds like a good Friday!
Love you!
