Desserts and Spider-Man

Today, starmalachite and I went out to discuss our dessert-reception arrangements (for our wedding at the end of Conterpoint) with the kosher bakery we heard about from gorgeousgary and the_sheryl. Their offerings look promising, and less expensive than I was expecting for a good dessert buffet.

(On the subject of Conterpoint, it's worth mentioning again that madfilkentist would like submissions for the convention CD/songbook by May 15, the hotel block closes on the 22nd, and preregistration closes at the end of May. We now return you to my irregularly unscheduled random commentary.)

We then went to see Spider-Man 3. My overall impression is that it's better than most of the reviews give it credit for, but not as good as the first two; they probably would have been better off to use fewer characters and develop them more thoroughly. The angst level was pretty high, but then it generally was in the comics.

There were a couple of neat promo items in the theater lobby -- a sofa with a set of life-sized Simpsons plastic statues (and a space for somebody to sit down with them and get a picture taken) and a life-sized Silver Surfer figure, complete with surfboard, advertising the upcoming Fantastic Four movie.
