Movie Night report

We watched The Thin Man this evening, and it was fun. The amount of alcohol consumed is kind of boggling. Two things that I thought were noteworthy is that there was no soundtrack, really, only background music in scenes where there might be music playing in real life. I noticed this most in the scene where the hero was wandering around a dark building and it was just quiet, there was nothing saying "hey, this scene is tense!" The otehr thing is that it was nice to see a married couple with no issues between them. Nick & Nora Charles are very clearly happy and attached to one another, and there's no tension. You don't see that very often. (Even if the good, solid foundation to their marriage is booze...)

Also, the tiramisu recipe from the Nov-Dec issue of Cook's Illustrated is really, REALLY good.
