We finally got out for a film, this week. We went to see Kingsman: The Secret Service, and I liked it better than any of the James Bond films I've seen, and I've liked most of the Bonds. I thought that one set of effects near the end of the film was a little over the top, but all-in-all it was a fun film.

As a trailer, I found out that there's going to be a film adaptation of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., but from what little you can glean from a trailer, I don't find the actors that they've chosen to portray Solo and Kuryakin nearly as compelling as the guys from the TV show. We shall see. Even if only on Netflix.

forestcats has us working on something of a furniture-making project for the backyard; she got a very inexpensive metal sink with plumbing hardware attached, and now we're building a framework to hold it up, partially from found wood in our yard leftover from other projects or from things that we've torn down, and partially from new materials. Once completed, it should help make her gardening duties much easier.

Last night I escorted my wife to a dinner with a number of quilters and a scattering of husbands. Pleasant evening, marred by my fatigue. At least I didn't faceplant into the creme brulee...
