Inkheart - Movie Review

Snagged a pair of advanced screening passes to Inkheart, starring Brendan Fraser. I thought it was a pretty good movie, not the best, but good enough to watch with your family. There were some cool special effects and interesting characters. Brendan Fraser plays Mo, a Silvertongue, who can bring characters from books to life by reading outloud. His daughter inherits this ability as well. Mo accidentally reads some villians out from Inkheart, and reads his wife into it. He spends his life searching for a copy of Inkheart so he can get his wife back. Andy Serkis plays the villian Capricorn, who is trying to bring the evil and powerful Shadow to take over earth.

Back to School

Finally the last term of my university degree!! Taking 3 courses this term, but still so busy because they all have projects - AHH! I'm already so frustrated and hw is starting to pile up, and it's only the start of the 3rd week.

So shopping. Did a lot of coupon shopping during the holidays. Just in December 2008, I saved almost $400 just using coupons. My out of pocket total I would guess is less than $40, maybe even less than $25. Darn those pesky taxes!

I'm going to keep track of how much I save during January. So far it's about $40, but only coz I haven't been doing a lot of shopping since school started. I'm waiting for the new brandsaver coupons to come so I can use them at London Drugs to get Olay products. I love London Drugs!

Definitely still check out if you want to save mega bucks while shopping (free everything!) and get freebies and samples.
