#4534: Saw the last Hoobit movie

...in IMAX 3D, no less. It was fun, and I have to admit the 3D is pretty sophisticated. I had a bit of a problem correctly seeing things in extreme foreground, but otherwise it was like I was there.

That's actually the first time I've seriously tried watching a 3D movie of any stripe. I don't think I'm going to seek out 3D movies, but I'll no longer try to avoid them, either.

The last movie in the series featured that 45-minute battle scene, and we finally get to see how a dwarven army does things, which--by itself--was worth the price of admission for me.

No spoilers here, but I'll say that I enjoyed the movie quite a bit.

So the theater we go to is in Indiana, and on the way there I was pleased to see gas selling for $1.89 a gallon. I resolved to tank up after the movie, on our way home.

When we got out of the theater, the same gas station was selling gas for $2 a gallon. *sigh*

$2 a gallon is still cheap, though, so I tanked up. WTF.

And my hunt for full-time employment has garnered me an interview, finally. Same job I'm doing now but in a different location, so here's hoping I get it. I could use the health insurance, even if it is going to consume about 40% of my take-home pay. Thanks, Obama! Thanks, Democrats!

A step in the right direction for me, though, and one that's sorely needed.
