women have high standards

I remember once that my great aunt Gertrude was down from New Jersey for a visit, and we went as a family to see "The Remains of the Day," a British period drama starring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson. Aunt Gertrude fell asleep during the film, which had to have been one of the most desiccated dramas ever to cross the pond. Can't say I blame her.

In 1991, "Terminator 2" came out, and I saw it in the theater with my mother and my two brothers. My brothers and I came out liking the film, which featured shootings, stabbings, and some wild special effects (for that decade), but Mom complained, "Too slow." Heh.
