Ceci n'est pas une personne.

Nothing says "Family Heirloom" like medical waste.

Going though boxes of family keep sakes we found all sorts of medical history.

The screws from my sisters shoulder, from one of her ski racing accidents.

And some old gold teeth. Bling Bling, old school style. 1800's old school style.

And many more boxes to go. How long until we discover some ancestor kept body parts in jars of formaldehyde?
Ceci n'est pas une personne.

We rented a couple movies. First was Bringing Down the House. It wasn't that funny. I'd say skip it.

But, if you want a slow movie that is VERY good, I highly recommend The Dancer Upstairs. It's set in "Latin America", and it reminded me a great deal of the stories I heard about The Shining Path while I was in Peru. And it's directed by John Malkovich. In fact, I think that is the first and only movie he has directed. Like I saidd it's slow. VERY slow. But worth the drag.
