    Yay! Another podcast! I can’t even imagine what you’ll do for a title when you get up to numbers like 12+. I’m now quite psyched to see Salt, actually, as I’m a total sucker for spy flicks. Though, it sounds like a step off of Nelson DeMille’s book “Charm School” (which they really should make into a movie at some point. It’s so much better than “The General’s Daughter.” Can OTB get that done for we DeMille/Cold War espionage fans out here?) Off to see Scott Pilgrim Mon/Tues after the kids have returned to school in the states & before y’all discuss. From now on, I’ll schedule my viewing round OTB’s podcast :D – Love, your biggest fan
