Sunday I made cookies with this recipe, and they are delicious. The batter almost broke my hand mixer, but I think it was so cold in the kitchen the butter's "room temperature" was still a little too hard. I used cocoa powder from this company (I think I must have got it the last time we went to Central Market in Houston) and it is fabulous.

We went with a friend last night to see The Warrior's Way, and I enjoyed it a lot. It's very much a samurai movie with a western surreal steampunkish flavor, and it was very romantic and then there was a bloodbath for like an hour. Bits of it are very grim, not for the children. Jang Dong-gun is extremely attractive, even when he's covered with blood.

We also saw a trailer for the Green Hornet. We're eventually hoping for some sort of edited compilation version, titled Kato and the Car.

Ha! Well put. I saw that trailer, too. Eep.

Yes, Kato and the car looked awesome. The rest...

Hmm, it's one of those that I'm debating as to whether I might see, but if I did, it would totally be for Kato and the car. I'm not much of an Apatow or Rogen fan, and I'm worried it will have too much of that kind of humour in it.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking, too. Kato and the car are very tempting, but I don't know if Rogen would be too intrusive for me.

I thought The Warrior's Way was fascinating in the way it just owned it's surrealism.

Yes, it reminded me a bit of Scott Pilgrim (which I also loved) in the way it established a skewed reality and just completely inhabited it.

Jang Dong-gun is extremely attractive, even when he's covered with blood.

That makes me curious enough that I'll at least have to rent it...

(We rarely go see movies in theatres).
