Last night I began work on a ripple afghan. Although I remembered how to do a double crochet stitch, I suck at understanding crochet patterns. It took four tries to get the thing started, which is not a minor inconvenience when the thing begins with chain 178 and I don't detect the problem until the second row.

It probably didn't help that I'd been to the eye doctor earlier in the day and my pupils were still dilated. I have a new prescription and should have new lenses in a week and a half. This will be good as you know that big 'E' at the top of the eye chart? Well, that was the only letter I could make out with the old prescription.

While we were in Indiana for New Year's Eve, jebra and I watched Trapeze with our nephew Collin. Good gravy was Tony Curtis a tasty morsel in those days. As was Burt Lancaster. I've always liked Curtis, but Lancaster was a surprise. I looked him up on imdb and it seems the only other movie of his I've seen is Run Silent, Run Deep. And that was long enough ago that I don't remember anything about it other than the title.

Shatner was actually good in Judgment at Nuremberg, he played a young, idealistic prosecutor. Judgment at Nuremberg is certainly in my list of top 5 Spencer Tracy movies (talk about sexy in an unexpected way :). I think it's second only to his performance in Inherit the Wind. It's not a multi-night thing, about a 2 hour movie done in the early 60's. I've regularly found it in the discount bin for $5 at Walmart. You should add it to your list, it's very good (a little preachy, but, hey, they're nazis.)
