Dinner and a movie with reflection on the side

Last night I suggested that we have roast beef sandwiches with Jarlsberg cheese (with red onion and horseradish on mine; with tomato from our garden and mayo on his) for dinner.

Hay: “I don't know what made you think to have these for dinner, but it's a great idea!”
Poppy: *ponder* “I guess I just had a craving for them, so that's what I wanted!”
Hay: *stuffing face with sandwich* “numnumnumnumnum”

During dinner we watched Woody Allen's Match Point. I loved it, and distinctly remember thinking, “wow, this is the first Woody Allen movie I have ever loved...” Hay got bored during it and wandered over to the gaming computer. Jonathan Rhys-Meyers is a lot like Joaquin Phoenix to me. Same lip region, same eyes, same ears, same jaw line, same chin(-ish), same longing stare into nowhere, same evil aura. If I didn't know better I'd say they were brothers, or even the same person.

Back to the movie: Lots of infidelity, lots of figuring out what to do about said infidelity. It's definitely the first movie I've seen with Scarlett Johansson where I hated her character. That was intentional on Woody's part. Oh, and I love tennis so thoroughly enjoyed the tennis scenes. (Random!)

I have removed yesterday's posts. I appreciate your comments, especially DLil's (she's my girl). I don't appreciate the darkness and despair I feel each year on the eleventh of September, and I certainly don't want to be reminded of it the day after.

I saw Match Point and I'm sort with Hay in that I got bored at one point. I did recover from my boredom, though and really loved how it ended. Most movies don't end with the bad guy winning. Oops, did I just give it away to those that haven't seen it? Oh well.

Joaquin is like a messier version of JRM. Messy and cuuuute.

Ohhhhh, I like messy. *giggle*

This is probably the last thing you expected anyone to comment on with this post, but being the information-seeking dork that I am, I had to click the link for Jarlsberg (not because I've never had it, but because I was just curious what my friends at Wikipedia had to say about it). My favorite part of that entry is where they mention that Jarlsberg is good for eating as a snack, and they then link "snack" to another entry, in case you aren't familiar with that term.

Lord, how I love Wikipedia.
