No dogs for now, but we've still got movies

We're not getting a doggy right now. I guess I knew that but I didn't want to admit it because I want to have a little puppy sooooo much... but it's not the right time for a dog. It really doesn't make sense to get one and *then* to buy a house, or to get one on the spur of the moment. If we'd already moved and this opportunity came up, well, we'd get one.

This evening we went to a friend's place and watched Changeling, which turned out to be a pretty good, dramatic movie. Angelina Jolie and John Malkovich were both quite good in it, as were the costumes and sets. The story is apparently based on a true story which gave it extra punch. The only complaint I had about the movie was that it felt a little long, as though they were trying to bring too much of the story into it. It runs at almost two and a half hours and could have easily cut a half hour to make a tighter, more focused, even more dramatic movie.
