ah, yes... could get old soon indeed and perhaps already 
since the DVD was only about $5.99.  the frat boys, 
yeah... nwell... nuff said.   8)

but i gained a new respect from my class of college 
students when i asked them who this guy was who did ali g 
and borat.  first time i had ever seen him.   i got to see 
a preview screening of "borat"  at the university that the 
kids didn't even know existed otherwise they would have 
been there. 8)  i am mildly embarrassed to say i laughed 
til i cried.  so did the rest of the house.  and no 
demonstrations at my very PC college.  imagine!

perks of my husband's job... he picks up and delivers the 
security previews and takes them back to the airport. 
 stays with them in projection room the whole time.  i do 
it sometimes, too.   kind of  extra job when the seasonal 
'blockbusters' come out.

btw... i baby-sat the nativity story the other night. 
 beautiful locales and costumes.  i watched about 1/2 hour 
of it.  got tired of standing at the teeny tiny window and 
went back to my copy of gourmet.  but it looks really good 
with production values and at that point, angst-less 

time to turn the turkey in the brine
