I finished Water for Elephants. It was very good! I am looking forward to the movie. Assuming I see it in theaters, it will be my first Robert Pattinson film that I have seen. But the book - it was great. I recommend it!

I also finished the Kill Bill series. Volume 2 was mine over the weekend and I watched it Saturday after some grape stomping and football. So you know how my three greatest fears are being buried alive, sharks and driving in the rain? In Kill Bill vol. 2, there's a pretty realistic "buried alive" scene. For most of it, the screen is completely black (like you're in the box with the victim), so you don't hear anything but the victim crying and the dirt being shoveled on the grave. It was so completely scary. I had to pause it and take a lap just to calm myself down. That Quentin Tarantino. So clever. But the movie was great, both parts. I recommend it if you can handle a little gore. It's DEFINITELY not as bad as Inglorious Basterds, but there are still you know... decapitations and stuff.

Last but not least, I tried belly dancing class last night. Why not? It was fun. I don't know that I will go back, as it didn't feel like a tremendous workout, but it was still a lot of fun. Kate went with me (or did I go with her?) and we learned a lot of the proper techniques for belly dancing. Shakira better watch her back belly.
