"A Dragon, A Dragon...I swear I saw a Dragon...."

Pete's Dragon is either the best or worst animation+live action film Disney ever made. In other news, I was at a wedding this weekend for two friends who, though very "religious"--i.e., attend church a lot--had been "secretly" (at least from their parents) living together for about a year before getting married. It makes me sad to go to receptions after weddings like that, but I'm not sure why. Is it because they did the whole church thing but missed the point? Is it because nothing changed for them after they said their vows? Is it because there was none of the panic/excitement of the "first night" together, though thousands of dollars and weeks and weeks had been spent in preparation? I'm not sure...but it has me down. That and the fact that Elliot (the dragon) had to fly off at the end of the movie to find another little boy he could totally f-up...I mean help. Heavy, dude...heavy.

My wife says that you can always tell who has had sex before their wedding day.

I don't know what it is, but there is this odd aura about a couple... or maybe its just a lack of that glow you see so often in the couples that waited.

I think she's right, anyway.

I SO totally missed those overtones in the movie. Jeez!
