Halway Through Lent

I’m on the downhill slide as of today with my Lent.  I have had no real issues with it until this past week.  I’m actually having a few cravings, but that is explainable.  But those cravings actually pass in like 10-15 minutes.  I think that was my problem before, I would just grab some chocolate and not wait out the initial I want chocolate.  I’m still having a lot of dreams where I break my Lent without realizing it at first.  It’s kind of odd because I wake up thinking that I have and then realize that it was only a dream.  Anyway, so far, Lent is a big success.

So I have been catching up on some movie watching as of late.  In the past few weeks there have been movies that I’ve actually wanted to see, so that’s part of the reason.  I really don’t care for romances/romantic comedies which was just about all we had for awhile.  heh heh.  I plan on doing some reviews after I finally see The Crazies, which I was going to watch last night but decided not to because of the weather.  I instead stopped by a redbox and watched District 9, which I have wanted to see for awhile.  The other movies I have watched recently are Alice in Wonderland, Avatar, and Shutter Island.  I plan on seeing the Lightening Thief (even though I haven’t heard good things about it) as well.   We’ll see I guess.

There is also a German movie I want to watch.  It’s called Das Versprechen (The Promise). It is about a couple in East Germany trying to flee to the West.  One makes it, while the other one doesn’t and the other one promises to come.  I won’t go into too much detail though.  We read pieces of the script in German class and we also watched the first and last scene.  I’m mostly interested in it because it shows just how much the Berlin wall disrupted Germany.

Anyway, that’s all for now…
