tonight we hit the local movie theater to see pirates of the caribbean at world's end. i'd have to give it a thumb's up. i didn't understand all of it, but boy, captain sparrow, played by johnny depp, is sure entertaining to watch. i think there were more funny lines in this movie than the last. but nothing tops the first one. if you see this movie, make sure you stay until all the credits have rolled, which is a long time. but then there's a short clip that's worth waiting for.
in the middle of the movie, jake got a call on his cell. he didn't recognize the number but he and i knew who we were hoping it would be. he picked up the message and then left the theater for five minutes. he came back in, sat down, and whispered to me with a smile on his face, "i got the job!"
you see, earlier in the afternoon, he had a job interview with cold stone creamery. he thought it went well but was told that they would get back to him soon. i don't think he thought it would be that soon. sounds like he'll start training this weekend. he's happy. mom and dad are happy that he has a job for the summer. and maybe he'll bring home some ice cream occassionally =]
