finding the words

It was four degrees (F) this morning. And yesterday morning. So we dug out our heavier duty clothes, last used in the frigid days of December, and went about our weekend business .. seeing movies, doing a few chores, going to church.

Transamerica -- as partner said, a predictable story, but Felicity Huffman surpassed the gimmick of playing a man in transition to becoming a woman.

Mrs. Henderson Presents -- Judi Dench effortlessly plays another scene-chewing role, this time as a 1930s upperclass dynamo who ends up producing burlesque. Best line?

Mrs. Henderson: Are you an American?

Soldier: Yes, mam.

Mrs. Henderson: Strange people. Lovely manners.
